Whew. Just came home from exercising
and I love that all over
‘just did it’ feeling.
Stretching those muscles.
Setting goals and moving towards them.
I find that it’s all too easy to stay at the same place
instead of growing.
Although there is no way that you can be growing in every direction at once
Maybe now is that time
that you sense it’s important
to move out of mediocre
God has placed within you
potential and strengths to do more
oh, much more
that you can possibly imagine.
So let’s begin.
What have you wanted to do
but have held back from?
Or let’s put it this way-
If you knew that you could accomplish it
what would you like to do?
Down deep inside
what have you been yearning to do
where have you been longing to go
but it never seems right
or there’s never enough money?
My heart is to embrace yours to encourage you
to pray deeply and earnestly about those desires
and then begin to step out in that direction.
You with me?
Not knowing how
just beginning to work in that direction.
Trusting a great God,
leaning on His Strength,
asking Him to do the seemingly impossible in and through you.
its that first step that is the most important.
Write down what it is
and also why you want to do that.
The why is almost more important than the what.
I want to complete my first fiction book.
I’ve sensed it within me for a long, long time
but there is never enough time or energy to finish it.
I even have the title but have not yet completed it.
Sound a little like you?
As I pondered why I want to write the book
it came down to this.
I’ve sensed that it’s a story that will encourage and inspire others
to glorify Him.
That’s what energizes me to write it. I imagine His Smile.
So prayerfully listen to His call.
Then write it down and also write the why.
Then begin to plan what small steps you can begin to take to bring it to pass.
Your life is a gift
and He has gifted you. Let’s make this year
the year that you finally do it.
Are you with me?
