Life Lesson #53 – Is it that you can’t, or that you won’t?
Is it that you can’t clean the house, or that you won’t? **cuz you just filthy**
Is it that you can’t keep your legs closed, or that you won’t? **Just stepped on some toes, errr…shoes cuz clearly you’re not standing**
Is it that you can’t lose weight, or that you won’t? **Cuz you pretty for a big girl, right? Mmmpphh**
Is it that you can’t marry her after being together 8 years, or that you won’t? **if you haven’t figured it out by now…**
Is that you can’t accept love, or that you won’t? **But yet you know what you’ll do with it when ya get it, right? SMH**
Is it that you can’t, or that you won’t? **You’ve been treated bad so long, you don’t know what’s good until its gone**
Why do we get stuck in the capability vs. the willingness? The capacity vs. the action? I see it as the ‘can’t’ is where you have something limiting you; you don’t have the ability to do something. The ‘won’t’ is your willingness or lack there of to act. Hmmm…
This month my Pastor has been drilling on the subject of desire, choice and will. He states that the desire is the want, the choice is the decision, and the will is the action. He says that we have control over the first 2: desire and choice, but it is God that must give you the will to carry out the action; the one that moves you. I thought this was quite interesting.
So maybe some prayers need to go up to ask God to move you to clean up your house, to close your legs, to stop you eating 2 large pizzas and a 64oz diet soda, to recognize who your Eve truly is, to receive and digest that you’re worthy of love, and that you’re blocking your blessings.
Don't know about you but I know what I will be doing...tomorrow. **Stuffing last cookie into my mouth...Pray for me ya'll**
Now, all of the things I write are my life's lessons. I share so that maybe others can learn from what I've been through or seen. I don't have all the answers (well, maybe most...) but its something to ponder. I'm not a therapist and this is not intended to provide counseling or advice. Just someone who feels they've learned a thing or two.
