Challenge your Faulty Belief Systems

Our Words and thoughts can trap us.
Agreeing to a thought that is not true can lead us to choices that stagnate our life and keep us from achieving our goals.
We have the power to agree or disagree with our words and thoughts. So we need to question our belief system to see if it is faulty.
I remember believing in something that kept me from reaching my potential as a musician.
Many years ago I auditioned for the worship band in my church. A few days later the worship pastor rang to ask me if I could play Sunday night at 6pm. I was thrilled but I got my information wrong. I don’t know whose fault it was but I got there late. After the service the pastor loudly reprimanded me for not coming at 4pm. I tried to explain but it didn’t help. I felt bad very bad and I was never called again. Not long after I was asked to direct a play in church and so I did. I would smile at the worship pastor and because we never spoke again I rationalised that I was not meant to be in the worship team and meant to be in the theatrical department. I was happy with my thinking. But was unhappy when it carried on for many years and into another church. I felt I had musical talents to offer. Finally I realised my reasoning was false. It was hurt and the fear of pain that had kept me trapped. I challenged my thoughts made an appointment for an audition straight away.
Challenge your belief systems now.
What faulty belief systems are keeping you trapped and what are you going to believe?
We are scared to go to those places because we are afraid of what we will find.
What is the worst thing that could happen? I asked myself this question before I auditioned. For 3 days I had my bass guitar glued to me practicing 2 songs. My leg hurt from sitting, playing for hours with a heavy guitar on me. I asked the question, “what would happen if I don’t make the team?” The answer was scary. What would it say about me as a musician? What would it say about all those years playing  professionally? I kept practicing. Then I felt God was saying to me. “You know you’re not going to be playing those 2 songs in the audition”. I thought WOW, that’s amazing, I eased off on practice and true enough I didn’t even play those songs, the audition was very easy and I was accepted on the music team. Since then, I have had a wonderful time playing. I look forward to continuing my musical journey.
Don’t be afraid, ask the tough questions. Living in a faulty belief system is far worse.
