March - Get Rid Of The Madness!
I can hardly believe that we are in March. I've noticed that in the month of March retailers and businesses declare the month of March as “March Madness” by deeply discounting their service or products to increase their sales and customer based.
I was just sitting at my computer and this thought just dropped into my spirit. Why not declare March Madness as the month that you stop the madness in your life. Make March the month that you declare the madness stops and you get free. What do I mean by getting rid of the madness? Putting off your purpose putting, off your dreams, putting off all your goals because of your feelings of inferiority, feeling you don't measure up or no one is interested in what you have to say or what you have to give.
All of this of course is a sign of a faulty mindset of fear and inferiority that keep you from moving forward in the things that God has ordained for your life, for this time and this season. We often hear people say it's your time and your season. But guess what, it's not your time or your season if God has not told you it is.
This might a time and season ordained by God for preparation and training so that you can effectively serve others and walk in your purpose. It may be your time to deal with your mindset, confront your past abuse and abandonment issues, which you have refused to face and move past. You cannot go forward if you’re thinking is still in the past.
So declare “March Madness” the month that you stop the madness that is holding you back from achieving your dreams and goals; stop the madness that keeps you playing the game of life in a very small way. Stop the madness in your life say to yourself, “I'm given my all in order to pursue my divine purpose and destiny for this time and season in my life.” It’s time to march and get rid of the madness! Make this the month that you put away the madness of the and basic head on make launch the truth would get the madness of you lying and do not need what you fit what you really feel and what you this year in your to do.
Declare March as the month you forget the madness of what they said, what they didn't do, or how they didn't support you, or who don’t believe in your dreams and goals. You believe in yourself; you believe in your dreams and goals because that’s much more important than what others say, think, or believe.
Declare and decree March is the month that you get rid of the madness that has held you captive to your past. It's time to get past your past. It's time that you take responsibility for your own life, because God will hold you accountability for your life and what you do with it!
No one can hold you captive except you. You hold yourself captive when you hold onto the past and refuse to learn new things. God wants to do a new thing in your life, and He cannot do the new thing until you release the old thing.
Here’s my challenge for you:
I challenge you to do to take look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself the hard questions. Stop lying to yourself. Stop telling yourself that it is something outside of you that is preventing you from experiencing happiness, joy and peace and from achieving the dreams God’s placed in your heart. Stop lying to yourself. It's the face that you see in the morning every day yet you that’s the problem!
It’s you; no one else!
Here’s my question to you:
Aren't you tired of telling to yourself every year that this year is not going to be like last year, and declaring that you will not be in the same place this year as you were last year? Be honest with yourself. If you are so tired, what are you doing differently this year to keep you from repeating last year's results? If you haven't created a plan of action that is different from what you did last year, guess what? Then you're going to repeat the same thing you did last year nothing!
I call this madness; this is self-sabotage and self-deception. In other words, you’re lying to yourself and by lying to yourself you’re getting your own way, and you sabotage your dreams and goals that God placed in your heart. How can you get from point A to point B if you don't even know what you want or how to get there? It's time to stop living in fantasy and wishful thinking, and begin to get serious about your own life, your own purpose, and your own destiny.
Every thing that is happening in your life or not happening in your life is a result of the choices you have made and are currently making every single day. If you don't like the outcome or the results you have gotten so far, then you have to change what you do in your daily routine as well as change the negative mindset that you have.
Because your mindset will determine what you believe and do, which will determine your outcome or reality. Whatever it is you believe in the deepest core of your own heart that is what you will act upon. So, if deep down inside you don't believe in yourself, you don't believe God can help, don't believe others are going to help you, or believe you can't do it, guess what? You won't be able to do realize your God-given dreams, and no one will help you. God won't be able to help you either until you come into agreement or alignment with what His word says about you and your purpose and destiny.
You must know who you really are and what you are called to do, and how you are called to serve, and then go out and do it! So, march forward into your purpose! Declare “March Madness” that you get rid of the madness of doing things that don’t matter to you, that doesn't glorify God, or serve others! March triumphantly into your purpose; it’s waiting on YOU!
