Vulnerability is the gatekeeper that leads you towards opportunity. I wrote my last post on the power of owning your story. And the more I walk with God, the more I discover not only the power to own your story, but the power in owning your disappointments. Three days after my 23rd birthday, I got…
52 weeks ago, I celebrated my 21st birthday and here I am again celebrating my 22nd. One of the best ways you can be intentional with your life is to always be growing. The decisions you make today determine the stories you tell about your life tomorrow. So, the best decision you can make is always the next one. People who never get started leave no room for ambiguity. Therefore, decide today to take steps that will move you closer to becoming all that God has made you to be. I know that It takes a lot of courage and bravery to step out in faith but we were not meant to stay confined within the limits of fear.
When there is trial and difficulty that is the place where you and I grow the most. Our actions dictate who we become, which is why we must live intentional and consistent lives on average days. God is always preparing and, He is preparing you for something.
This has been a desert season; yet, I’ve learned that God often speaks clearly in the valley. Every time I neglect the simple yet profound truths of who God is, I choose to forget that God is on the throne, He is in control and that there are far greater things ahead than those that I leave behind.
How many people are limited by their own thinking, their own insecurities, or even the voices they have allowed others to speak over them? MANY.
Has it come to you that, maybe your answer may be limiting the movement of God in your life.
Attached to understanding one’s life purpose is knowing who our creator is.
Maybe the business deal you are waiting for hasn’t gone through, or the opportunity you have been praying for is not here yet, or even the right person hasn’t come into your life however, don’t start looking to the left or to the right, look ahead! What is ahead of you is greater than what is behind you. God does not want to just meet your needs or give you the desires of your heart; He wants to fill your storehouse with exceedingly, abundantly type of blessings that surpass all the you can ask, think or imagine!
Your perception and interpretation dictates the outcome of the situation. It doesn’t matter nearly as much where the pressure comes from as it does what you do with it, which will determine what it produces in your life.
What is happening around you is really what God is doing in you.
Only God can show you how to convert the pressure into something glorious. You may have been here before and what you are facing seems far more difficult than the past but you and I serve a faithful and never changing God who is able to deliver is from anything.
There are things in your life that if you don’t fix, you won’t do. It is not a matter of provision; it is a matter of priority. It takes faith to put God first. This may be uncomfortable at times but trust me, it is SO worth it. If you release what you have, He will release what you need.
Never compromise the vision or the process that God has given you. Most of us, overestimate how much control we have and underestimate the choice we have. You never really have control in a situation, but you ALWAYS have a choice. Instead of blaming your current situation on decision you made, see it as an opportunity to ask yourself to questions: “Where have you come from”? and “Where are you going”? You can either forcefully do things your own way or flee from waiting to see what God has in store for you by being in the driver’s seat of your vehicle AKA your life.
