God is Making Me


Dedicated to Godly goals, not personal feelings or peer pressure

Every day my goals are nearer because I stay on the main highway. I practice resolute self-denial and keep my attention on my goals until I achieve them.

I am not double-minded.

I am becoming more and more single-minded.

My parents wanted me to be resolute, and my steadfast life is an honor to their desires.

My friends know me to be determined.

My family sees me becoming more and more dedicated.

My parents are proud of my assiduous life.

My uncompromising habits are an asset to my community.

Those I work with are delighted that I am becoming more and more goal-directed.

I am not afraid to be persistent in a culture that gives up easily.

My desire to be unswayable pleases God.

I am committed to becoming more and more inexhaustible.

People around me can depend on me to be immovable.

The Spirit empowers me in a relentless pursuit of my high calling.

I often think about how I can be more resolute.

I appreciate tenacity.

My spirit reverberates with resolve.

My conscience knows the value of finishing the race set before me.

I can tolerate those who are fearful and destructive of themselves and others. I exhort them to become all that God created them to be. But I am sensitive to the Spirit beckoning me toward the stature of Christ and away from those who resist Him.

I will not be dragged down by nihilistic, self-destructive people, sucked into pity parties, and contaminated by collective selfishness.

These words resonate in my being; I use them often:

  • confirmed
  • resolute
  • single-minded
  • not double-minded
  • adamant
  • ceaseless
  • dedicated
  • determined
  • firm
  • immovable
  • inexhaustible
  • inexorable
  • inflexible
  • relentless
  • resolved
  • steadfast
  • unbendable
  • uncompromising
  • unswayable
  • unyielding
  • persistent
  • tenacious
  • fixed
  • intentional
  • set
  • assiduous

just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,
-- Ephesians 1:4-5

Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts.
-- Psalm 119:78
