Enough is Enough

Satan wants me to look for multiple ways to comfort myself. As far as he is concerned any old thing will do—food, laziness, television, etc. Anything that is except God. God is the only thing that can really comfort me in a satisfying and lasting way. And there are no bad consequences or regrets later on when I go to God for comfort.

I have circled this mountain [of deceiving myself] long enough. Now I need to turn North (Deuteronomy 2:3). It’s time to move forward. Self-pity, fear, pride, and negativity have paralyzed me long enough. Ending this cycle of defeat takes courage but if I don’t do it, I will remain a victim and stay stunted—unhealthy, unfulfilled, full of regrets.

I am setting my compass to True North. I am going to stop circling that mountain and begin climbing up it instead. I’m taking off my mask and becoming who God made me to be. My relationship with my Lord will lead me onward. His love will lead me into true fulfillment.
