You are a Liar, a Cheat, and a Thief!
Yes, you are.
You are a Liar because you tell yourself that you are going to work hard to accomplish your next dream, and you don’t. You convince yourself that you don’t have enough time to get it done.
And that you don’t understand the necessary things you need to do in order to make it happen.
You lie to yourself because it feels easier than the-the truth, and you cannot bear to think that you just “can’t” do it. So instead you tell yourself stories about you “coulda, woulda, shoulda” but didn’t because of a million false reasons. You lie because it’s safer, and it can keep you in familiar situations with familiar people.
You are just comfortable, so you convince yourself that this is where you are supposed to be because “God” put you there.
God has ordered your steps for greatness, and he has created a path for you to follow to achieve it.
He has empowered and equipped you to prepare and persevere through it all.
And you are a liar for rejecting the truth that he has inserted in your life.
For failing to work your dream to live your dream and committing yourself to excellence in your life.
That’s why you are a Liar.
You are also a Cheat.
You cheat yourself from receiving the gifts that God has bestowed upon your life because you have convinced yourself that you don’t deserve them.
You cheat yourself out of opportunities to achieve greatness because you think that you are not “ready.”
And you are a cheater because you play both sides of the fence win your own life..
On one hand you talk a good game but on the other hand, you don’t do the work, or you give up when the work seems to be “too hard.”
When you do this, you have succeeded in cheating your heart and soul of feelings of self-value and self-worth.
And you cheated the core of who you really are the chance to operate at maximum potential.
When you question the path that has been laid out for you by God, you are cheating your Faith by not allowing it to help you to “just believe.”
And if you don’t have Faith then you will never think you can reach your dreams because your Faith is replaced with self-pity and self-doubt.
You cannot be successful and happy living like that.
So when I say to you that you are indeed a cheater, this is what I am talking about.
You cheat your own life from prosperity, happiness and fulfilled dreams.
And finally, you are a Thief!
You steal from your dreams when you minimize their possibilities.
You steal from your mind when you don’t allow yourself to learn different ways to reach your dreams.
You steal from your heart when you block it from love and commitment.
You steal from your Spirit when you do not allow it to be filled with the Word of God.
You steal from your Promises because you do not keep them to yourself.
You steal from Hope because you give up too easily.
You steal from Perseverance because you think you lack resiliency.
You steal from Forgiveness because you are stagnant in old hurt.
You steal from Happiness because you are too comfortable being angry.
You steal from Strength because you have convinced yourself that you are too weak to handle it all.
You steal from Confidence because you don’t trust and believe in the talents, gifts, and skills that God has already instilled in you.
And you are a Thief because you have spent a lifetime not embracing all of the treasures within you.
Instead, you choose to keep them hidden —even from yourself.
So your life lacks joy, fulfillment, and peace.
You see, being a Liar, a Cheat, and a Thief are the key elements that are holding you back and perhaps keeping you from achieving your dreams.
They stop you from living in your purpose, maximizing your potential and reaching your destiny points.
You have sentenced yourself, because of these crimes, to a life filled with disenchantment, disengagement, and disenfranchisement.
You have allowed doubt to destroy your dreams and pain to (prune) your purpose.
You need a “Get Out of Jail Free” card now to free your heart, mind, body and soul to allow yourself to heal and to give yourself permission to be happy again.
You are a Liar, a Cheat, and a Thief!
Now, what can you do to redeem yourself?
