“I ain’t settlin’ so raise the bar high!”

Why is it that we let ourselves settle?  This has been on my mind for a while now, I just was not sure how or what to write about the subject. And I guess by writing it, I am admitting that I have considered settling.

There are so many things in our lives that we let ourselves settle on…

We settle on the job that we know is not the right one, but just feel is the best we can do.

We settle on the first relationship that comes our way just because we want to be in a relationship, even when it is the one we know that God has not planned for us.

We settle on just getting by, accepting the outcomes the world has placed upon us.

When we settle we are not searching for God’s will for our life. No where in the Bible does it say that you will just get by, in fact the Bible says the opposite!

God has promised us a life of blessing and provision, God knows our deepest desires, He has promised them to us, and although we pray and pray and pray and do not see it, does not mean God has said ‘no,’ it means He has said ‘not now.’

God will provide all our needs, He wants the best for us. So lets stop settling for what’s barely enough and reach for the promises of God.

He loves us. And we love Him. Everyday we should spend every moment doing His work. Glorifying who He is and how much He has done for us.

So as of right now, lets not settle! Let’s aim for what God wants in our lives!
