You know what I hate more than anything? Being a HALF ASS. I am a lot of things but I am not a Half Ass.
What’s a half ass? It’s an attempt to do something with less than who you are. The result is short changing yourself and the rest of the world. The results can be devastating.
Here are just a few:
- Low self-esteem
- Poor Health
- Low Self Confidence
- A false belief of how God designed you.
Samson was called to be a great warrior for God. God gave Samson amazing supernatural strength to destroy the Philistines, a race of people who were fighting against Israel, God’s chosen people.
God saw this a raised up a hero named Samson. Samson had much physical strength but a moral weakness; a desire for many women. One in particular named Deliah.
Samson gave into his weakness more than his surrender to God. He did a half-ass job.
The tragedy is many people believe in SOMEDAY.
“Someday, sometime, somewhere somehow things will work out. Then I will pursue the path that GOD designed for me.”
NEWSFLASH! There ain’t no someday on the calendar. Sometime ain’t on the clock. Somewhere is where your at NOW. Somehow is using all your ASS, not half it.
Half Ass-ing your life will bring you more pain and sorrow that you can imagine.
Trying to please everyone by NOT pursuing your passion and purpose?
Someday..those people will resent you. WHY?
Because they didn’t benefit from your GOD given design.
You have a Samson inside you. Do you know what it is? Have you rejected it because of the fear of success or failure? Like Samson, have you embraced someone or something that doesn’t belong to you?
Are you somewhere you shouldn’t be today because your running from your God given purpose? Stop and look around. Where are you? What time is it in your life? What season? How old are you?
I was recently told that someone was frustrated because I am pursuing my God given passion with full force. I never believed in living a half ass life. If your going to glorify God with what he’s given you then do it with all your might… or not at all.
There are rewards and consequences in half assing or putting your whole ass on the line.
What are they? Here are two scriptures to back up what I am writing.
**And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17
**You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. 5 Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lamp stand from its place.
Today what do you want your future to look like? A courageous Samson who went full force into unknown territory keeping his eyes on God’s prize? (he had his eyes gouged out by the way)
OR…having God remove your lamp stand? (your ability to see who you are for him and for those you care about)
The choice is yours today… and everyday. 🙂
Join me and become the SAMSON you were designed to BE!!!!
