It is such a blessing to be able to experience the manifestation of answered prayers!
Oftentimes we do not realize that we are hindering forward progress in our lives and the lives of others when we stop growing; sure we’re doing stuff, i.e. going to work, church, hanging out with our family and friends, and maybe even attending enrichment events from time to time etc, but to me growing goes beyond the normal routine of these activities.
Truth be told I didn’t realize until recently that I had stopped growing; and quite frankly it was a rude awakening for me. So much is at stake. I was literally holding people back in life.
I was doing all of the above i.e. going to work, serving in church etc, but I didn’t realize that I had stopped growing. I was doing enough to get by. Don’t get me wrong, I am at the top of the latter in my career, as far as where I want to be. I am a leader in many others areas of my life, my bills are paid, etc.
We can get comfortable in our lifestyles for many reasons, especially if we’re doing better than our ancestors did.
Whatever the case, the bottom line is BETTER is ALWAYS available; a better way of doing and seeing things; a better attitude about people and life. Better is not just about a better way of increasing financially, although that’s definitely not a bad thing because God wants us ALL loaded but BETTER is available in EVERY area of our lives, our relationships with our spouse or significant others, our children, co-workers, church family, etc.
When I got a clear revelation that my life is not just about me it stirred something up in me. I felt an urgent need to do something about it immediately so I cried out to God for guidance and things began to line up and fall in place me. The wisdom of God and the mind of Christ began to flow in my life like never before.
I FINALLY got it; the light had come on; God had so much more in mind when He blessed me to be in each of the positions that I’m in, from my 9-5, to the area of ministry I serve in at church and the exposure I have through connections with my family and close friends. I have been able to share words of encouragement, give hugs, firm hand shakes, smiles, etc. none of this was by accident, it was by design because God already knew who would need what and when! I didn’t understand it at first. I just knew that people always left my presence feeling much better than when they came.
The truth of the matter is that ALL of us have something extraordinary that this earth needs. It’s time to stir up the gift and get to growing! As Coach Datasha Mayo always says comfortable is whack and each finishing line is a new beginning line. Let’s get to work!
I admonish you to locate yourself. Ask yourself if you have become complacent. If so, ask God to surround you with people that will help you get back on the right track. If you say you got it going on, keep growing!
God wants the very BEST for all of us. Somebody is waiting on YOUR YES! Each joint has a supply. One Body with several parts!
Make It Happen!
