Thumper

Standard

Sometimes you just gotta have faith and DO IT.   You will mess up, you will make mistakes and you will grow, stretch and learn from those mistakes, but you have to let go of the fear and doubt and just do it.  Pastor Ronnie preached on this last week.  I loved it.  He talked about the disease called

 ” I can’t do it-itis.”

I am guilty of having suffered from this disease myself.  I think we all have to some degree or another.  I let the negative take over instead of the positive.  Why do I do that?  I guess it is human nature.  My friend Betsy just blogged a terrific post about guarding our minds and hearts.  We should think on good things.  It’s hard, it takes practice, practice, practice.  I am one of these people who does not believe in coincidences.  I believe God sends us people to tell us things and Betsy’s words spoke to me yesterday, especially since I was having some stinking thinking myself.    I have got to stand firm and put plugs in my ears and my hand over my mouth when I hear negative words.  Will I respond kindly and be like Thumper and  say, ” if you can’t say something nice, then don’t say nothin’ at all” or will I fall into that trap of negativity and respond the same way?

I pray that I can be like Thumper!
