The Gig is Up! Just Say Thank You!

Good Morning Y’all! There’s a song by the Williams Brothers that says, “I’m just a nobody trying to tell everybody about somebody who can save anybody.” That’s the way we were taught to think in church. “Don’t think more highly of yourself than you ought.” But it doesn’t say put yourself down or be a nobody.But so many people resonate with thinking humility means to put yourself down. When someone sings well and you compliment them, they say “It’s all Him and not me.” I say the gig is up! Just say thank you and go on! It’s good to give thanks unto God but when someone compliments you on what they already know God has given you, it is a slap in the face for you to say “It wasn’t me”. As to say that you don’t know how to use what God has blessed you with. He has to come and take over because you’re not a good steward of your talent. I say, the gig is up! Just say thank you. It’s time to stop putting yourself down and stand in your own power! I will always be SOMEBODY telling everybody about the power within us given by God that can change you and you alone! Change the way you think and believe, you will change your life! Others can only be changed when they change their thinking as well, but that’s not your work. #elevateyourmind
