Hello everyone, it’s Adam DeGraide here with another micro motivation coming to you from my bathroom.
As you can tell and looking in the mirror here. You can see my bald spot boom right back there. It’s interesting to see yourself.
Last week I talked about a message from future Adam.
And today I want to talk to you about dealing with the giant in the mirror. That’s right, this guy right here, that I see every single morning, drives me crazy, because at the end of the day we all have problems in our life, every single one of us. And some of them are big, some of them are giants, some of them are really causing problems of epic proportions in our life.
Some of them are self-inflicted. Some of them are others inflicted. But nevertheless, they’re challenges and they’re problems. And one of the things that I realized, what is very important, is that before I can deal with the giant problems in my life. I have to deal with the giant in the mirror.
That’s right, this guy that is sitting here right now, staring at me. Every morning, I could see how out of shape he is in certain areas. I can see my balding spot but more importantly I can see into my own eyes and my own heart, and I can ask myself the question, Am I truly dealing with myself?
You see, even though all of us have giant problems. The biggest problem we face is staring back at us every single day in the mirror. And until we deal with that giant in the mirror, we cannot really deal with giants in our life.
And the Bible says to “seek first the Kingdom, and all these things shall be added unto you.” The Bible has a lot of promises, talks about peace and forgiveness and power, and healing, and strength, and purpose and passion. And these are things that we can have if we seek first his kingdom.
The problem is, we’re always seeking this guy’s Kingdom instead. And for me, the challenge is, I’ve gotta to say you know what, I must become smaller, so God can become greater in me. And therefore, by dealing with me as my giant, I can deal with the giant problems in my life. You know, and how about you guys that are watching the video right now and the ladies that are watching the video. How often have you looked in the mirror and said, are there things that I need to change in my life?, things that are really impacted me in a negative fashion, because I know in my life there are massive things that I need to continue to work on to refine my heart to bring me closer to God, to deal with this giant who’s staring back at you right now, and it’s always staring back at me. You see, every one of us has giant problems. The question is, are we dealing with the real giant, which is ourselves?
This has been a micro motivation with Adam DeGraide.
Remember if you can’t make your point under four minutes, you might not have a point to make.
Thank you so much and hey, don’t be afraid to deal with that guy right here, cause at the end of the day, you fix that problem, you fix a lot of problems.
Have a great day guys.
