No More Excuses!

Excuses are the tools with which persons with no purpose in view build for themselves great monuments of nothing. ~Steven Grayhm


For many of us, there is always a “legitimate” reason for not doing this or accomplishing that. Or so, it seems. But the truth is, we really can BE, do and have anything that God desires for us {Psalm 37:4(NIV) – Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart} – that is if it wasn’t for… EXCUSES!

EXCUSES is just another way, of saying – ‘I AM putting limitations on myself’…and we know that whatever we say or think after the words I AM shapes our current reality. Our “reasons” (excuses) are not good enough. Sure, we can (and often do)come up with every “justification” (excuse) – as to why we wouldn’t or couldn’t do something – but sooner or later we’re going to run out of excuses! And then what?!

If we were truly honest with ourselves – then we will come to the understanding that perhaps the thing(s) we think we say we want — WE REALLY DON’T DESIRE IT! The fact of the matter is that even the word: CAN’T – comes from an inactive can. So in essence we can “do” it, but our State of Being says that we really don’t want to. In turn, we formulate reasons (excuses) in our own mind that agrees with our State of Being

  • “I don’t have enough money”
  • “I’m too old, young, fat, skinny, …etc.” 
  • “They don’t like me”
  • “I don’t have enough time”

….and the list goes on and on!

We really can BE, do, and have anything – as long as we take ACTION! But here’s the caveat – our ACTION (or State of Being) MUST be in alignment with what God desires in and through us! And yet, here’s another even greater caveat – whatever (as long as it is true, honest..etc. see Philippians 4:8) it is that we desireis what God desires for us! How powerful is that?!

To think, say or perceive that we lack anything is an excuse and to deny the power of God that works in and through each and every one of us! So, for today let’s eliminate our excuses – by thinking not of every reason why we can’t BE, do, or have something…but rather, thinking of every reason why we can! 

The bottom line is simply this: If we really wanted something bad enough, there’s nothing that can stop us from getting it!


  • Philippians 4:13 (KJV) – I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
