In one of my recent blog posts I posted a picture with the saying
“A journey of 1000 miles must begin with a single step.”
I cannot express how amazing and inspiring this quote is to me, and hopefully to you… I wanted to share this with you
Your journey begins with one thing. That is saying yes. Saying yes to tapping into your God given potential to be a vessel of progression, transformation, innovation, love and compassion.
Here’s a thought. Imagine if we chose to spend all the time we think about OURSELVES, OUR PROBLEMS, OUR LIVES, on…. others. Imagine all the differences we as a human race could make?
I am using this blog to promote that kind of change, it starts in the heart, and the mind. It is about thinking about the way Christ views us and how much Christ sacrificed for us to be given everlasting life. I mean there are no words to express the significance of this kind of love and unending grace.
That is the most exciting thing about being a Christian, that we KNOW where home is, and we know that this short life on earth should not be lived for ourselves, we are merely vessels that God WILL use if we allow ourselves to be obedient before the Lord and say YES to Him!
So often people that speak with me want so badly to live a life of purpose, yet they do not know God. Yet they want God to just speak and tell them the plan for their life. But here is the thing. It’s simple. Walk with the Lord and devote time to His word and in His word He will speak to you, reveal to you and make your life so clear.
I am asking that you think about saying YES to God, and devoting your time and thoughts to Him and to others. Let’s spend our time and energy on the things that really matter, because one day it’ll be gone, and where will your treasures be stored up? I know I want mine to be stored in heaven, because NOTHING of this world will last. Heading into the new year I want to make more connections with anyone who is reading this. I want to be praying for you and your families, for your hopes and dreams and for your decisions to allow God into your life, and to find yourself walking with His son every day. I’m feeling that the year of 2017 is all about saying YES to God! I have a very exciting God story in the making… let’s just say I am learning about saying YES all over again… let’s see what happens! Can’t wait to share in His perfect timing.
You are all loved.
Psalm 32:8, NIV I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.
