40 Day Miracle – Surrender EXCUSES

Posted by rise2it on September 30, 2012

When I woke up this morning I realized how often I use EXCUSES and how I never finished this 40 Day Miracle because of EXCUSES.

  • “I’ll do it tomorrow.”
  • “But…”
  • “I can’t…”
  • “It’s to hard.”
  • “I’m too tired.” etc.

It time for me to STOP making EXUSES so I can find a way!  How about you?











What God has to say about EXCUSES:

  • You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. ~ Romans 2:1
  • You are not slaves; you are free. But your freedom is not an excuse to do evil.  You are free to live as God’s slaves. ~ 1 Peter 2:16 NLT

rise2it: What does it mean?

Posted by rise2it on September 1, 2012


For me there were a couple of meanings behind choosing the name “rise2it.”  The first is to help my clients rise to the challenge (everyone is capable of something new, something different) and to show them how to rise to a new level  (aim higher, climb the ladder, explore new options).

When I put out the question on Facebook I got even more:

  • Rise to the top (win the game of life, climb the mountain)
  • Rise up to get it done (stop procrastinating)

Be ready for whatever “it” is.  “It” could be:

  • to meet someone (to show respect – Le 19:32)
  • to meeting your thoughts with understanding (Byron Katie’s The Work)
  • to grow
  • to evolve
  • to do whatever it takes
  • to be better
  • to get off the couch (get up and get moving)
  • to help (De 32:38)
  • to give thanks (Ps 119:62)
  • to clean yourself off (Isa 55:2)
  • to conquer the weight loss/gain rollercoaster (win the battle – Jos 8:7)
  • an invitation to notice, be aware

Rise to “it,” a feeling of elevation, of maturity, of seeing it from a new perspective, like the sun rising, spreading light on the dark spots after the night. Thank you to Ravit for her words of wisdom.


  •  Rise up; this matter is in your hands. We will support you, so take courage and do it. (Ezr 10:4)
  • We rise up and stand firm. (Ps 20:8)
  •  “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.” (Lk 17:19)
  • Those who have done good will rise to live. (Joh 5:29)
