Question of the Day.....What's Hindering You?

I must admit, I am the Question Queen!  I have a tendency to ask a plethora of questions at times.  I am very inquisitive, therefore I research my heart out using a variety of resources such as the internet, books, even people to yearn my curiosity.  So on today I have a question for you! 

We all have room for improvement in our lives in one area or another. God wants us to live to our fullest potential.  Galatians 5:7 says "You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth?" This scripture is used in relation to our faith/spiritual life, however I would like to take it a bit further and include your faith life as well as personal goals.  So let's get some dialogue going shall we?

Question of the Day:

 What is hindering you from becoming the best you?

In other words, what is hindering you from becoming the best in fulfilling your dreams, walking in your destiny, succeeding and fulfilling your true purpose in life, and serving God to the fullest?

Okay here are the guidelines:
  • Dig deep and look within yourself. Be totally honest, this exercise may help you recognize your shortcomings (if any) and allow you to move forward in becoming the best you
  • Feel free to share your answer in the comments section ( you may be helping someone with your answer) 
Since I would not ask you to do anything I would not do, I will begin this Q&A session by answering the question..........

What is hindering me simply put is ME! As far as my spiritual life, I feel that I am definitely hindering myself from a closer relationship with God, although not intentionally.  There are things in my life that I definitely need to change! No I am not perfect, far from it in fact! I probably would say that I knowingly and unknowingly sin daily. (thank God for honesty) One thing for sure is that I need to die daily of the things that are hindering me from a closer relationship with Christ.  I fully embrace that I am a work in progress

As far as personal goals, I could blame others for me not being where I think I should be in life, however I understand that life is a process. God has an awesome plan for my life and I trust that it will unfold in due time.(Yes I really want things my way right now!) I thank God for where He brought me from and where He is taking me.  In the meantime I can prepare myself by continuing to seek out opportunities to better myself.   All in all I know that a closer relationship with Christ is the key to everything.  If I get my "house in order" and improve my relationship with God, everything else will fall in its place.  If I seek God first and foremost all other things will be added unto me! :)

  1. what use to hinder me was myself and what other people have done to me. I know now that God is the Author and the Finisher of my life. I know now that I dont serve a slack God. I know that whatever is hindering me I can go to God and He will reveal it to me. I still get in my little stubborn way, but I then have to slap myself because God has been to good to me for me to sit down on Him. Praise God
