#Determination

Determination used to resemble stubbornness in my world.  Often I was ‘determined’ to do something just to prove a point.  Determination now resembles overcoming an obstacle.  I can think of so many things that I am ‘determined’ to do, however; lately, I am more ‘determined’ to eliminate certain ideas from my thought life and replace them with His ideas.  
 
I am determined to never doubt my worth as a child of God.
 
I am determined to be an authentic follower of Jesus and not a ‘plastic’ Christian.
 
I am determined to be obedient.
 
I am determined to learn how to follow Jesus with reckless abandonment.
 
I am determined to love others the way Jesus loves me and to use honor and value as verbs.
 
I am determined to surrender to Jesus on a daily basis and to ask Him to strip me of EVERYTHING that is not of Him.
 
I am determined to keep my thoughts focused on things that are pure, holy, honorable, lovely, commendable, and excellent. 
 
I am determined to surround myself with wise counsel who will build me up, encourage me, and lead me away from sin rather than towards it.
 
I am determined NOT to let my past define who I am today.
 
I am determined NOT to make pleasing man a priority and to focus my eyes above at all times. 
 
I am determined to NOT be of the world even though I am in it.
 
I am determined to tell others of His love, locally and globally, until all have heard. 
 
I am determined to repent and ask for forgiveness when I fail Him on a daily basis. 
 
Lastly, I am determined to trust Him to be my God…so I can just be me.  (Thank you Laura Story).
