Hallo great people! I hope you had a great week. I will get right to it today with my message of encouragement, for I do not intend to bore you with my perception of the relevance of having a plan of action for your life. I felt that after I talked so much about how important it is to have a plan in your life; it is equally important to be able to see it in your mind, feel it, walk it and live it. This is also an action plan that is as important as breathing is to your life. Hence why today I thought I should encourage you about having a clear vision about where you are headed with your life which is totally different from having a plan.
Woodrow Wilson once said, you are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish it if you forget errand. What is more important actually above all wisdom is what the bible says and I found Proverbs 29: 18 that says:
Where there is no vision, the people perish but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
For me, the older I get, the more I refuse to accept the concept of systems. A system of going to university and being programmed to think in a certain way. Upon graduation, you get employed and for some people, you settle in here as your final destination, later on you retire, get lousy pension compensation, retire and then you die. Meanwhile, you have been paying all sorts of loans and some of you might even leave this earth without clearing these debts actually. I truly agree with Woodrow Wilson because I don’t think God spend His precious time to create us, just to go in circles piled with all sorts of debt and die randomly with nothing to be remembered for. Which leads to my next point, being employed is absolutely fine. It is a stepping stone that prepares you for the future but while you are at it, no matter what it is you are doing, have a strategic plan for your life, after you have found your purpose, pray about it and pursue it with all your might. We can call it the greater good reason as to why you are here and when you find it, for sure, the universe will step out of your way.
There is an interesting bible verse in the book of Ecclesiastes 11:6 that say:
Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let your hands not be idle, for you do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well.
So guys, no matter what job you have now, no matter what your position is, have a main plan for your life. A plan that allows you to co-create with your creator, a plan that allows your health and prosperity as promised, a plan that allows you exceeding joy and a plan that allows you to glorify God and help make this world a better place. Sowing a seed in the morning is your work from 9-5 and in the evening, instead of being engrossed on crappy television shows; sow in for your future, which is pursuing your assignment here on earth, your true dream, your vison, a mission that leads you to an increase of faith, freedom and maximum security.
Grace and I had a mission to search for vision boards and what we wanted to do is stick pictures of how we want our lives to be on fast forward and every day make it a mission to fulfill that. However last weekend, we ended up going to a shopping mall (typical girl behavior LOL) and as they say the rest is history though we intend to fulfill those plans. When you have a clear picture of what you want and put in the action, in due time it will manifest.
There has been a piece of wisdom floating around that says “If you create a vision for your life, doors will open” because as Jesus instructed in Mark 11:24;
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe you receive them, and you will have them.
And above all else guys, please be dear to yourself and put God in your plans for He promised in Psalm 37:5:
Commit your way to the Lord, trust in Him and He will help you.
Nothing is more assuring than aligning yourself with Gods plans rather than failing and being depressed through life due to sometimes over confidence or leaning in your own understanding. The vision you attain is the desire God put in your heart so talk to Him about it and watch the magic happen.
I have managed to be brief today by the way. Hip Hip Hurray haha or maybe thanks to my sips of wine. I love you guys much and keep supporting the blog. In collaboration with Grace, we have a lot of magic in store for you AND GIVE AWAYS TOO YAAAY!! So stay tuned and tell a friend to tell a friend. Otherwise, I wish you an incredible weekend ahead and be good to yourself.
