ACHIEVING YOUR

 POTENTIAL 

Here it is the first day of  2006 we never know what we are going to be faced with, but we can be assured God has a plan. As we look to the future may it be with hope wanting to become a better person, affecting everyone we are around with the love of the Lord. In order to begin to achieve ones potential we need to understand our Comfort Zone- That area which corresponds with your current self-image in any area of your life. Can we see the greater our self-esteem the broader our comfort zone becomes? This many times cause undue grief to all around us. Move out of your comfort zone and we experience tension, anxiety, breathing becomes difficult, muscles in our neck tighten, we secrete extra digestive juices causing ulcers. The result is decreased effectiveness and poor performance.

How are we going to keep within a positive comfort zone were we are proud of who we are? Look at how youíre talking to yourself to build good, positive self-esteem. Self talk is given to us by God for we are all created to communicate and make choices and the choices keep us in a good positive comfort zone. Romans 12:1-2  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2.  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

This is a commandment that allows our comfort zone to give us a real peace about who we are, regardless of our circumstance. Yet many people are not able to be comfortable, because of sickness, loss of money, or loss of good self image and ability to talk to themselves. 

Is it what we think about who we are, or is it what does God thinks about who we are? We look at our imagination and we see only those who are doing better than we are and get very depressed, and this depression leads to poor self image. We say to our selves poor me!

When we look at others worse off then we are, our self image becomes positive and it affects our comfort zone. We are then able to care for and love others, helping them to realize there potential.

That is a getting a vivid picture of who you are and how much you need help to go through all the uncomfortable situations of life. Imagination become real as I get the true picture of who I am and how helpless I am. So Imagination Xís vividness equals reality. Iím uncomfortable knowing Iím lost and in need of a guide, compass, or an order of some kind, to get me back on track.

Sin makes me very uncomfortable and I want to hide what ever Iím doing that is wrong. My subconscious is working to make me ashamed, or feel good about who I am. I canít see God but my who body, soul and spirit tells me in my subconscious he is alive when I do wrong and if its wrong I want to hide in order to feel comfortable. But then Iím lying to myself rather than accepting reality.

Alcohol makes me feel comfortable when I am drinking, but does not make me feel comfortable after it is taken. Sexual activities do not make me feel good after it is all over. We canít argue with our imaginations, for if we do we are going to be uncomfortable, bound by some type of addiction.

Lord help me to see reality of my actions and behavior, for we do reap what we sow. Humanism wants to convince us that there is no difference between actual experiences and one vividly imagined.

That is one reason for people becoming so wrapped up in mysticism and the occult. When what we need to understand is one canít experience the fullness of the things of the Lord until he abides completely in the Vine as John 15 teaches us. Our self image is affected in a negative way when we accept the laws of our sinful nature. That is the way of the world and we are not to be conformed to this world but be transformed by the  renewing of your mind, proving what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. That is abiding in the greatest comfort Zone one can imagine, Jesus. So I trust you will do all you can to put your total trust in the Lord letting Him begin to control every area of your life, that your-self image will not be damaged or feel depressed. You are an Ambassador for the Lords, representing the King of Kings in all you do and say, regardless of the circumstance. Thatís beginning to reach your potential as you understand we need HELP in 2006.
