Have you ever had a time in your life when you let an opportunity pass you by and you always wondered what would have happened if you had made a choice and walked boldly through door one instead of letting indecision derail you?
Deciding Not To Decide
I was coaching with a client the other day who told me a story about missed opportunity. The man, I’ll call him Charlie, told me about when he was about 12 and his father pulled up to the house and got out of the car. He said to his four children, “Want to come with me? Get your things and let’s go. Either stay here with you mom or come live with me.”
Charlie decided not to decide and so he stayed put. That indecision has plagued him all his life into his adult years because his life went downhill after that. Would things have been better if he had gone with his dad? Did he ruin his life by not deciding? How can he ever make a decision again?
When he dealt with this issue, God poured His truth into him and freed him to be able to make decisions finally knowing and trusting that Father God does guide him and will continue to guide him.
How Do I Learn How to Live Healthy
Many people have a hard time making decisions. What is the right thing for me to do in order to learn how to eat healthy? Should I take a chance on yet another weight loss program or should I just continue to wallow in the confusion I am in? And if I decide to do it, what if I fail once again?
My advice to you is to do something. Anything is better than nothing. Moving objects can be directed. Stationary ones can’t. God directs us when we are doing headed out on the path.
One of my life verses had been Isaiah 30:21 NASB: “Your ears will hear a word behind you, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ whenever you turn to the right or to the left.”
The important thing to notice about this verse is you have to be walking. You have to be moving. You have to be on the path because it’s only then that God can direct you if you veer off the path in any direction.
It’s been proven time and time again if I will listen to what I know is the voice of God instead of my confusion, turmoil and indecision, it will be right every single time. But that only comes when I am headed out on the journey.
Motivating me to move is a lot harder than directing me when I am already on the path. A simple course correction makes all the difference, but again I have to be going somewhere.
Don’t Stay Stuck
For those who are dealing with the stronghold of weight and the addictive nature of certain foods, like I do, if we don’t get into community with a group of people on journey with us, led by a coach who’s been there and always directs us to follow the one true Coach we all need, we are still going to be stuck.
Some wonder if will help them. It will if you listen to the teaching videos or audios and do even half the things suggested. I won’t lie to you. Changing your lifestyle is not as simple as losing 4 waist sizes in 16 weeks.
If you do that, you haven’t changed anything. The weight will come back as soon as you stop that diet. And you will stop because you have not learned to change your habits.
Change Your Focus
In Overcomers Community, we focus on lifestyle change, not a diet. A diet is a set of rules imposed upon you. But what if you could figure out what diet really does work for you and follow that with God’s guidance?
What if you really could begin to exchange your bad habits with food with good habits in every area of your life. What if Romans 12:2 MSG really is true. “Fix your attention on God and you’ll be changed from the inside out?”
Overcomers Community’s doors are closing tonight at midnight, June 19. They won’t reopen for months and when they do the cost will be higher. It’s the only time to join at our founding members price of $27/mongh, less than $1/day.
If Overcomers changes your life, it is worth more than the greatest amount of money you have. You owe it to yourself to do this.
What Is Your Life Worth?
Are you worth $27/month? Is your life worth that? Is your time here on earth worth that?
It’s decision time. Don’t let this once in a lifetime opportunity pass you by. Don’t let deciding not to decide be your default mode once again. Don’t let indecision derail you from your journey yet again. Make the decision. No more waiting. No more excuses.
