BELIEVE THAT~

One of the things that often stand in the way of a person’s success at anything is believing…believing in God and believing in self…so many of us say, I believe in God, but the minute that God does not move in the time we have allotted, we go out and try to make things work on our own…been there and done that…and I understand, because we aren’t wired or conditioned to wait…we have been cultured to believe that we can ‘make it happen’…when true believers know, we have to allow it to happen…

As to self-belief…I have to thank God for giving me the ability to believe in the things he has blessed me with…I always knew I could do more than my circumstances…and blessedly HE continued to place those in my life who believed in me as well…because I assure you, if I had listened to some of the messages imparted or followed some of the examples I saw…ummph ummph ummph…anyway…
For years I believed that with prayer and hard work I could do well….I can recall taking what some would consider little jobs over the years…I would get in there and work my proverbial butt off and get somewhere else…promoted…to do more…

Four years ago when I entered this writing game…there were many who were convinced I was a one book wonder…and in many ways I should have, could have and would have…been...because that first book was a narrative, editing disaster…ironically people loved it…

I recall one day I was in one of the many online groups I was in at the time…and another writer took veiled shots at me…many,many…she didn’t have the guts to call me out, and my response is always unless you bring it to me…you are just blowing smoke…a few people responded, but most didn’t because they knew what was up, I was getting accolades from people and she didn’t like it so chose to be mean…but you know what I thank her…because she made me work harder, tighten up my game, I knew I could write, that I had a product that would be purchased and I also knew that, the little book I had written as a joke was more than a notion…four years later that same writer applauds my work…never knowing that I knew…because the one thing she and no one else has even been able to do is take away my belief that what God has for me, no one can take way and they certainly cannot take away the belief in myself and my abilities…BE PEACE~

Praise God you didn't listen to the negativity. I agree with you, if you're not bold enough to bring it to my attention, then I don't need to waste my energy on you. Congratulations on your success, and I pray for many more!!! What he has planned for you is yours and no one can take that away from you!!!

The gift that was given to you no one can take. Jealousy will bring out the worst in people. Keep writing, rambling and all you are doing. Thanks for not letting all that crop stop you from using the blessing He has given you.
