tear it up!
nounplural noun: misfit is a person who se behavior or attitude sets them apart from others in an uncomfortably conspicuous way.
noun: disturbance or problems that interrupt an event, activity, or process.
i have maintained the same approximate weight for far too long! i know how to maintain. it's not a bad thing to be able to maintain - but if we have been maintaining the wrong thing for decades or lifetimes then we have major tearing up to do!!!
maintenance is about securing the current - being steady. problem is too many of us are holding the maintenance keys when we should be ripping stuff up! there is no need to do any major shifting or rearranging when we are in maintenance mode, in fact if we make major shifts while in maintenance we will destroy it all!
many of our thoughts go like this 'as long as these pants don't get too tight. as long as i want to have the same conversations everyday. as long as i want to keep having the same bad habits. then i don't have to do anything terribly difficult.'
most of us don't like difficult situations or significant challenges. most of the messaging we see and subscribe to is to take it easy, to live easy - to not do the most. but what if God's direct call to us was to tear something up! to disrupt it all! what if God's instruction was to unfasten, to disrupt, to be a straight up ratchet faith walking misfit! ok real talk - that's exactly what He is calling us to do! the scriptures below prove it!
JOHN 4:7-9 JESUS HELD A CONVERSATION WITH A WOMAN, AND A WOMAN WHO HE SOCIALLY WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH!
JOHN 8:6-11 JESUS DID NOT CONDEMN THE WOMAN WHO WAS SLEEPING WITH A MAN THAT WASN'T HER HUSBAND!
Romans 12:2 WE WERE CALLED TO BE RIDICULOUSLY DIFFERENT!
JAMES 2:26 WE ARE SUPPOSED TO PUT IN WORK COUPLED WITH OUR FAITH!
y'all this is a great time to disrupt some stuff!
disrupt status quo!
disrupt some unhealthy habits!
disrupt unhealthy thoughts!
disrupt the cycles of sin in our lives!
disrupt all of the stuff that we maintain that ain't doing us no good!
disrupt unhealthy eating!
disrupt the lies we tell ourselves!
disrupt comparing ourselves to others!
disrupt the prayers that don't have any teeth connected to them!
disrupt the prayers that are filled with doubt!
for the next several weeks i'm inviting all of you to join me as we get equipped to tear some stuff up! to make sure our #RATCHETFAITH is married to some real work! our #RATCHETFAITH is meaningless, dead, flat-lined without the work! the reality is, Jesus is coming soon and He is looking for some folks that are not faithless!
let's put in some work y'all!
