Undoing The Lies That Keep Us From Success

faith Mar 28, 2020


Goal setting and achievement is an important part of living a life of fulfillment and confidence.

Why is it that we often struggle to achieve the goals we have in our heart? What keeps us from taking the steps forward toward our goals?

All too often, I get questions like this in the F.I.T. Sisters In Christ community, “why do I feel unworthy of success? I keep doing things to sabotage myself.”

Is there a place in your heart where you feel unworthy of succeeding at your fitness goals?

Meet Kerry, a F.I.T. Sister who gave me permission to share her story in hopes of helping you today. 

Kerry came to me frustrated that she couldn’t put on muscle after being bedridden from multiple surgeries. After a few meetings, Kerry’s real problem surfaced. 

The emotional pain from her recent divorce and the guilt she felt for the change in her kids’ lives was hurting her deeply. 

Her emotions were sabotaging her best efforts to care for herself and reach her fitness goals. She felt unworthy of success. 

Have you ever felt that way?

I asked Kerry to write out these scriptures in first person, and I invite you to do the same. 

This is who God says you are…

  •   I am redeemed and forgiven. (Colossians 1:14)
  •   I am given a fresh start. (2 Corinthians 5:17) 
  •   I am loved. (1 John 3:1) 

Understanding who God says she is, helped Kerry get free from thinking she didn’t deserve to succeed because of what she went through.

 Action Step:

I want to remind you today, that there isn’t anything that can separate you from God’s love!  

Pray with me...

 Dear God,

We are overwhelmed with gratitude that you love us so much that you sent your son, Jesus, to die in the place of all our sin.  We want to walk in the newness of life that this offers, and never let this gift leave our hearts. 

In you, we are a new creation; the old is gone, the new me has come. The slate has been wiped clean, and we will walk in this power and never take it for granted. 

Your Word says you are faithful and just to forgive us from our sin. 

We pray this over guilt and shame. Help us place our identity securely in you and walk worthy of your truth. Today, we trade the lies we tell ourselves for the truth of who we are in you.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

Here’s the truth:

You are worthy!

God only made one you.

He calls you His masterpiece. You are a piece of the master!

It’s time to activate and accomplish His perfect plan for your life, and you need to feel worthy to do it.

When you know who you are in Him, you’ll stop settling for less.

In Him, you can! Remember You are Strong. Confident. His.

You are loved, chosen and  forgiven. But you have to forgive yourself! 

 If this sounds like you, will you do that today?

 From my heart to yours, God bless,
