Ready for the next challenge??? Read the whole post below ok!?
Well, if there is one thing our worst enemy 'ourselves' will try to do, is to prevail against our spiritual development. In our minds we do want to be better people, but our nature, our inner being and our bodies don't want the same. They want what's easier, they want things that don't demand sacrifice.
And I believe - and I hope - that at least one of your OBJECTIVES still for this year from Challenge 1 is related to your spiritual life, right?
So let's go against our worst enemy that doesn't want us to reach this objective???
You know my friend, you can be the 'holiest' person in the world, you can judge yourself very righteous, but I can guarantee to you that we will always have things to be changed inside of us. Always!
This part of this passage doesn't leave my head...
Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him,
What about you? What do you lack in order to achieve this so wanted spiritual objective? What is it that you are still lacking, to conquer your salvation, to receive the Holy Spirit or to be closer to God?
Huh? What do you lack?
- Read the Bible more often
- Go to church more often
- Stop judging
- Stop having bad eyes
- Stop lying
- Stop being childish, immature
- Give more of your time to serve God
- Assume your faith
- Be more firm in your decisions
- Put an end to friendships that are pushing you away from God
- End a relationship that has been making you to sin, fall, doubt
- Watch TV less often
- Stop being a busybody to people's lives on the internet, instead of minding your own life... :(
- Stop gossiping
- Assume your mistakes
- Stop being religious and have intimacy with God
- Stop being lazy
Phew!! If I continue, this list will never end, right? Even if what you need is not listed above, no problem, you will attack it anyway!
And don't tell me that you don't know what it is, or that you have already been doing everything you can, because if this was really true, you would've already achieved your goal, right my dear friend? :)
Maybe what you are lacking is to be attentive to God's voice so that you may know what HE wants you to change! (Humm, maybe this should be an item of the above list... well, you're reading it here :)
Girls, there goes the challenge! Analyse yourself, pray, seek from God what is missing and I am SURE that He will show you - if you still don't know what it is - and then PUNCH!!! Attack, your worst enemy!!!!
As a proof of this challenge, post here in the comments and in my page on Facebook, the following:
I've completed challenge 2 of #overcomingmyself challenge, by attacking (write here what you've been doing) on behalf of my spiritual life.It's good if today, you can already decide what you will start doing so that you can practice it the whole week, ok?
Whohooooooo!! I am so happy!
Many kisses, and I will see you next Wednesday with Challenge 3!
Ps: Ok, ok, if it's something very personal that you need to do in this challenge, you don't need to specify what it is, but at least post here in the comments and in my page on Facebook that you've completed challenge 2, ok? But I would really like you not to be shy! :)
