Are you talking yourself out of your best life?

Monday, 28 March 2011

Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so the herald may run with it. for the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. (Habakkuk 2:2-3) 

I was struggling with what to write today, there is so much going around in my head right now. I have just finished an assignment for my direct marketing course that has been driving me crazy. I work full time as well as studying and I have somewhat been feeling the pressure of late.

However there is something propelling me forward, there is a driving force that will not allow me to stop. Against all the emotional ups and downs of life, the inevitable challenges that come along I MUST push on.

Thinking about all this reminded me of a bible study class I attended at church, it was looking at the passage I opened with today and I'm sure you would have gathered by now that it was all about VISION.

The vision you have for your life, the driving sense of purpose within you, that thing, that experience, that brings you to life. Your life's purpose.

I'm hearing some of you say I don't have a vision for my life, or I'm not sure of my life's purpose. I DON'T BELIEVE YOU!

Yes I said it, i don't buy that at all. I strongly believe that within all of us there is a driving force, innate and seeded deep within until we start doing whats required to bring that to the surface to bring it to life.

I'll tell you what I know to be true many of us, not all but many are living scared. We are scared to admit what we really want to be, have, do because we are scared it won't come true. We are fearful we do not have what it takes, we don't have the resources, we are too young, too old, too black! etc etc.

We talk ourselves out of our dreams, we try to be 'realistic'. I know this because its something I have done and still do sometimes. I know this because I see it everyday, people living in a state of compromise. 

I'm sharing one of my favorite songs by India Arie River Rise because to me it speaks story of straying from your life's purpose, the purpose we are so often in tune with as children. 

Please liberate your dreams today, write them down as you see it, as you feel it within. Have faith as you work towards your vision, some days it may feel like it is never going to happen, some days it may feel like its a lifetime away. WAIT, it will come. Don't look at waiting as a passive act it is not. The waiting room of life gives us time to prepare for when our revelation for our lives is realized. Each moment is helping us to prepare for the next moment. When your opportunity materialises, because your vision is clear you will see it and 
you will be ready to make the best of it. 

Finally ask yourself are you talking yourself out of your best life? Tera C Hodges spoke a truth I will never forget she said 'don't chase your dreams, attract them' but the first step is admitting you have that dream and preparing for when, not if! but when you will be in your dream awake. 

Stay Gifted and Highly Favoured.
