Have you ever found your self at a cross roads wondering, how on earth could you decide which route to take? Or making a life changing decision wondering if you made the right one? How would you know if you did? I guess only timewill tell but as long as you keep moving there are no wrong decisions only wrong directions! So the next time you find yourself at a cross roads it may help looking down the road to the future and seeing what direction each will lead you to and choosing the best for your life!
Have you ever positioned at the right place at the right time? What do you do? Do you freak out and hide or do you step up and shine? I have spent many years preparing for my calling and when I finally got to the moment I had been preparing for I almost wanted to hesitate. What was interesting was how after so much preparation there was no time for hesitation, there was only time to move. How do you let your instinct take over your fear? You Just Let Go and move! After the moment you are filled with so much fullfiment and alignment! So don’t ever think your not moving just because your in a season of preparation, you never know how fast the time can come when it’s time to move! Stay encouraged and focused on the mission, mainly preparing for It!
Have you ever felt like you were the only one in your family or circle of friends that was different? Like somehow everyone was headed in one direction and you seem to be heading in a completely different direction? How do separate yourself to go on your own path? For me it was always staying focused on my maker, it wasn’t always easy and there were many time I conformed to my surroundings, but my source always redirected me to where I needed to be. This thing we call life is a journey and only living one moment, one day at a time, can we stay on our path not the choices our family or friends make. When you get lost or need some clarity “just breath” and know that your path has already been laid out and all you have to do is decide where to take your next step! Who will you put your trust in?
Have you ever hit the snooze button instead of waking up? Why is it we would rather sleep in than be obedient to the day? When the alarm rings it’s time to start a new day! A new day of possibilities, new adventures or encounters, why would we want to prolong the day! These are questions I have recently began to ask myself. Do we like dream land better or are we just being lazy and wanting to sleep more? This is a tough one for me, on one hand a new day is exciting but on the other dream land is just as interesting and some days it’s just easier to stay asleep than face the day. How can we stay motivated to not rebel against the alarm? I think for me it’s the adventure of where the day will take me, the moments I’ll get to share with a special someone, it’s a surprise you just don’t know where you will find the romantic moments in the day. A Romantic moment is a moment in your day that simply takes your breath away, we should be hunting for these moments and appreciating them with everything we are! How do you know you just had a romantic moment, well that’s between you and your maker and what’s important to you and how it makes you feel!
Have you ever felt you were meant to do more than what you are currently doing? So have I, but what do you do once you know there is more you should be doing? How do you live in the purpose you feel you should be in or how do you know what that purpose really is? These are all questions I have asked myself and only going through a process of finding out what that purpose is will you truly find out. I started this process many years ago and let me tell you it was not easy. It started with how I saw myself, for the longest time I did not think very highly of myself and my conduct showed it. Once I got to a point where I just knew I couldn’t keep going on the path I was on and something had to change, God could truly begin His work in my life. I then moved to the next Phase of the Process, leaning to deal with the pain I had been through (that pain is for another time). Once I dealt with the pain then came the healing of my heart. What comes after healing, a breaking down of everything you are and everything you are used, it must all be stripped away. Do not worry my friends the hard part is over after the break down, because then comes the rebuild and this my friends is where transformation happens! No one ever said the process was going to be easy and I can assure you after spending more than 10 years in the process and only recently coming out of it, it is hard. I guarantee once you get to the other side of the process you will look back at the journey and be able to encourage so many others who still have to go through their process. The most encouraging words I received during my process was to enjoy it because it only happens once. Do not lose faith in the middle of your process instead press in and keep moving forward one day you will be out of the process and living in your purpose!
Today I received a revelation and it was like for a moment I was connected with me in the future.
Revelation: what I do today will on one day affect me so what I document today will one day make a difference. Although this might not seem like a big deal, most people should know this already but most don’t. I have always tried to live one day at a time enjoying life. When I connected with the me in the future I could see the affect or help it was to myself having things documented people I meet, what they do and a little detail about them. I was in the process of doing just that when I saw my future me looking back at present me with thankful eyes. The simple action of writing things down was so powerful and that instant moment of connection is what now makes me want to write things down at the end of the day. I’m not sure if anyone will ever read this but I do pray whoever reads these words they make sense.
Today was such a powerful day it started with Pastor Stephen Hayes boy did he touch some chords today. I recently went through a conversation where it was being explained to me it is better to not expect anything but to appreciate everything. Now this conversation started because someone did not do what I expected them to do which then lead to a public outburst, hey I didn’t say I was perfect. The next day after the outburst it was explained to me that it is unfair to have expectations on people and letting things happen naturally is more fulfilling. Today Stephen mentioned that the difference between being spoiled and not is Gratefulness. Spoiled is an understatement, I have been spoiled my whole life by my parents, teachers, family and even my Heavenly Father. I thought I was grateful but maybe my expectation from all these avenues is now affecting me in a way that if people don’t do what I want them to do I get very upset with them. At times bulling them into doing things I wanted or did not want to do. The other chord was when he mentioned God will not give us our next step until we have taken the step He has already given us. So what has God already spoken to you about? We want to know how everything will work out first before listening to what step He is saying to take first. At the moment I hear God saying “Commitment”.
Things to Commit to:
Now this may change in the future I am aware of that but for now these areas are where I am feeling called to focus.
