Undeserving

This was posted in a closed group prior to yesterday’s announcement of the College Football Playoff teams:
“I don’t expect Alabama to make the College Football Playoff Final 4 today … Congrats to the 4 teams that get the shot to play for the Championship. You earned it.” ~ An Alabama Alum

I expected that from Alabama haters or Ohio State fans…but from alleged Alabama fans … not so much.

It’s the kind of subversive thought that sabotages success and yet it’s the thought process we often unintentionally employ. We undermine our ability to get what we want with thoughts about how undeserving we are.

What if we could just want what we want with positive expectations instead of negative predictions?

“As someone thinks within himself, so he is.” ~Proverbs 23:7, ASV

Inhale Belief, Exhale Doubt…
Inhale Possibility, Exhale Subversion…
Inhale Expectation, Exhale Sabotage…

Hope

A passive hope is not effective.” ~ Deepak Chopra.

I heard this and I had to think about it…isn’t hope by its definition passive? So I actually looked up the word and what I realized is that having hope is not just wanting something to happen…having hope is expecting something to happen.

In fact, hope is a lot like faith…

Dear friends, do you think you’ll get anywhere in this if you learn all the right words but never do anything? Does merely talking about faith indicate that a person really has it? For instance, you come upon an old friend dressed in rags and half-starved and say, “Good morning, friend! Be clothed in Christ! Be filled with the Holy Spirit!” and walk off without providing so much as a coat or a cup of soup—where does that get you? Isn’t it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense?” James 2: 14-17 MSG

Inhale Hope, Exhale Despair…
Inhale Faith, Exhale Inaction…
Inhale Expectation, Exhale Inertia…
