prevent us from realizing our potential,
or embrace the fact that when we turn our attention
away from ourselves, our potential is limitless.
~ Christopher Reeve
Reeves’ quote does not put me down but rather encourages a shift in my focus. Instead of judging my efforts and striving for unattainable perfection, I should focus on the recipients and how they will be blessed. Rather than emphasize the end-result, I should enjoy the process. In other words, simply do my best and let God take care of the rest.
No one said life would be easy. In fact, we are promised many trials and heartaches. Impostor Syndrome is the thorn in my side, the obstacle I must overcome. Delilah’s voices are sometimes unrelenting and I often feel like a weary-worn soldier in a losing battle. But God is on my side and I will not give up.
