So, are you going to be one of “those” people?
Or maybe one of “those” people.
Or maybe, you deeply desire to be one of “those” people.

It is time.
No more excuses.  
No more reasons why you aren’t the patient person you say you want to be.
No more excuses as to all the hard things that stand in the way of you being more righteous, more loving, filled iwth integrity, or the picture of peace.

It is time to turn the page.
It is time.
It is time to leave the comfort of excuses.
It is time to leave behind the shadow covering who you really are down deep, the person you really want to be.

Yes, it will be hard.
Yes, Satan will throw every trick in the book at you–he longs for your defeat.
And he longs for your defeated attitude.

Choose differently.
Choose victory over defeat.
Choose to get up when you stumble.
And choose to be that person you have always said you wanted to be.

With Christ in you, you have all the strength you need–and more.
With the Holy Spirit nudging you to choose better, you have all the reminders you need.
It is up to you to choose.
Be that person.
No more excuses.
