Have you ever had something happen to you that kind of jerked you back into reality? I can say yes!!! It wasn't something painful or anything like that, but more of a "Really????? Are you kidding me?????" It was that kind of slap in the face that made me realize that no matter how much you give your all, it's never enough and if you can put this much effort in for something that isn't yours, why not pray, get the direction that you need and move swiftly.....(in HIS timing of course) towards the dream that God has given you.
I have never been one to make New Year's resolutions, but one thing my guy and I have been doing more of is talking, planning, praying and moving forward with the things that we want to do. The visions that God has planted deep on the inside of us both. Now that's a good feeling. You and your guy talking, planning and praying. Oh....Thank you Jesus!
I have come to realize, I am who I am......and once I stopped allowing negative thoughts to dictate otherwise, things in my life that were so simple and meaningless, were just that. Meaningless. I wanted to please people, be friends with everyone, do what it took to fit in...and the more I tried, the more I failed. I realized that I have to be who God created me to be. I am okay with my style of dressing, my way of talking, my way of decorating, it's okay if you don't talk to me, if I'm not in your loop, or even if you have a problem with me when I know that I've done nothing wrong. This is my way of being ME.
A friend of mine sent me an email regarding a blog that she read. It was about choosing ONE word for this new year. After I looked at all the words that the list had to offer, I was a little over whelmed. THEN....I prayed and asked God "what do you want of me on this new year?" It was as if He was standing in front of me and softly whispered the word "OBEDIENCE!" Plain and simple. Just be obedient. Don't fret over things you have no control over, don't worry about things that really don't matter and most of all TRUST and leave everything to me.
It's time... Time to get about our Father's business. Jeremiah 29:13 reads... You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. That is what I am doing. I'm seeking HIM with all I have because I want all that HE has for me. What about you? Have you had your wake up call? Are you moving in the direction that HE wants you to be moving in? Or are you satisfied with the way things are and where you are? Are you placed where HE wants you to be or are you placed where YOU want to be? If you are feeling too comfortable, you may want to pray and seek the one that know the plans HE has for you.
XoXO & Happy New Year
