I AM EXCITED! Amazing, huh that I actually had to be chastised for not getting exciting about the blessings of God! But, the deeper observation is that I allowed habitual disappointments from people keep me from rejoicing in the blessings of The Lord. That's the truth! I know that I am not the only one that has fallen into the "don't get excited about it until you see it because people will disappoint you!" It's true people are just people and people will do all manner of things that cause you to feel let down and/or disappointed - but when your trust is in GOD, The Great I AM - there is no room for disappointment because there is no possiblity of fallacy HIS will is perfect!
So God made ME some promises many years ago and I had grown weary in faith - I was acting as if God had to prove to me that He was going to keep His word therefore I was dead set on withholding my excitement until God proved to me that He was not like humans! What the HECK! Repeat after ME, "Marilyn was tripppin' hard!"
"God is NOT a man that he should lie..."
Since Part 1 of this article I have come to grips with the that that I have not been excited about far too many things! I sat and a created list of the various accomplishments and blessings that have come into my life over the past year and I ended up with about 4 pages (front and back) of blessings and accomplishments - 98% of which I had not celebrated or be excited about! SHAME ON ME!
I am so super gifted and blessed that I can hardly contain myself to finish this writing. So let me just share with you my current exciting celebratory moment!!! This past weekend I was blessed to begin the taping of a new television show called "The Successors" (ok I may have already told you that part, the case is amazing ya'll stay tuned!) and I truly allowed myself to be excited about it y'all! Turnt UP as the children would say! I am rejoicing in The Lord! Your girl done got (yes I said that) excited!
Don't leave the celebrations in your life for later - later may never come! Get excited NOW!
