No More Excuses

There are things that you have called me to do,
But I have politely declined.

“I’m too scared. I don’t know how.
What would my friends think?
That’s not me, Lord.”

All of the times I’ve turned you away
When you needed me the most…

Prideful. Unbelieving.

Made in His image but doing my own thing.

How will I ever be useful
If I won’t let you use me?

No more excuses.
No more playing defense.

I surrender.
I surrender all.

  1. I knew we were kindred spirits. I know God called me to write stories about how He works in people’s lives, helping them deal with all of the junk, but I fritter my time away, playing instead of writing because it’s easier, and my novel isn’t selling and I don’t know how to balance marketing and writing, and blogging and email, etc. etc. etc. Excuses, right? So I’m trying again. Let’s pray for each other.
