And after i jumped in, i laughed. i laughed because i realized that all that i feared was just a facade.
it’s always hard, until you actually do it. and then you say, “that was it?! duh!! i could have been doing this all along!!” #jumpin
i laughed because the enemy thought he trapped me in a stuck place. but that’s his job.... and i had to do my job! and i did. scram fella! i jumped in and tricked him like he always tries to trick us. #boom
i laughed because sometimes the “enemy” is “in-a-me” and i realized, “fool, you’ve been holding your own self back!” 🤦🏽♀️ jump in! so i did. i was tired of me. tired of the tricks i was playing on myself. “i’ll start tomorrow.” “i’ll start monday.” “ok fine, it’s tuesday, i’ll start next monday.” i’ll do better next year.” geesh, i was holding my own self back! so i jumped in on a... thursday. now what?! who says goals have to start on a monday? trick! god probably cracks up at our foolishness! he’s a possible god —> @iamdaniellemurphy
<-& time is not ruled by days of the week!
i laughed because weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. and some nights last a lonnnng time. 😭 but i realized that morning isn’t predicated on “daylight.” morning is when “i” decided to wake up and #dothework. so i jumped in. that day. no more delay. #staywoke
i laughed because i proved to myself that truly the joy of the lord is my strength. i define joy as a soul being, not a feeling. my emotions are fleeting (& often wrong, but that’s another post 😂😂), but joy is my strength when everything else is weak. that soul joy is what pushes me to start on a thursday. that soul joy is what tells me to jump in anyway because faith without works is dead. that soul joy is when i’m crying and don’t even always believe in myself, but i jumped in, despite all around me that told me to stay stuck. do something. do anything. that “one thing” will cause a domino effect as long as you don’t stop. god has given you answers to problems that the world needs. if you don’t do it, he will pass that good idea on to the person who’s willing to jump in... on a thursday. ♥️ #justdoit #dothework #jumpin
