DAY 34 OF 365: WALKING THROUGH THE WORD DEVOTIONAL

Your future which God is preparing for you is not lesser than your past where you’re coming from…

Title: BEHOLD I AM DOING A NEW THING

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert

Investing in yourself this year may be your best shot at succeeding in the years to come

Galatians 6:8 (Authorized King James Version)
“For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”

Just a brief thought that swam through my mind earlier. I’m yet to build something elaborate out of it.

LIVE FOR ETERNITY

As we observe this sacred season of the arrival of Salvation to the earth through the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ; a season of hope, love, compassion, care and togetherness. It’s very important that we stand out among the crowd with a unique understanding which will influence the way we do our celebration.

DESTINY

Notes are always a time to express myself and it is good to see it that way. Be blessed and learn from this expression whose aim is to teach you.
I remember that very good evening, I and a couple of close friends, Gift, Faith, Passion, knowledge, Friendship, Reality, Wisdom, and others had gathered together at our little home down Regular lane.

THE LAW OF THE GARBAGE TRUCK

Originally posted on Inspiration for Daily Living

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport.
We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car
jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.
My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed
the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car
whipped his head around and started yelling at us.
My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I
mean, he was really friendly.

So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that? This guy almost
ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!’
This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call,
‘The Law of the Garbage Truck.’

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks.
They run around full of garbage, full of frustration,
Full of anger, and full of disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to
Dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you.
Don’t take it personally.
Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on.
Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at
work, at home, or on the streets.
The bottom line is that successful people do not let
garbage trucks take over their day.

Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets,
So … Love all people whether they treat you wrong or right.
Pray for the ones who don’t.
Life is ten percent what you make it and
Ninety percent how you take it!
Have a garbage-free day!

Faith is not only believing God can, it is knowing that God will.”

-Unknown author

Have a great and garbage-free week ahead.

“See, I’m a living reality because of you. I’m here to pull down those walls with you. Do you know how hard it’s been for me? I mean, I love you so dearly, and to watch your life get harder and harder, and to watch you lose the ability to see or hope again, do you know how hard it has been for me?

I mean, to watch you turn into the type who works like the elephant anr survives like the ant…working harder and harder the more. Seeing you struggle through the storms, unable to hear my voice. Watching you choke under the circumstances and I can’t help you. Not because I can’t help, but because….you just won’t let me. You never thought I could do it. But, I could have helped, or…I would’ve, if only you’d let me.

I never stopped talking, or caring, or loving.
This has been the hardest part: watching you lose sight of me, the pinnacle of your destination and motivation disappearing into the distance.

Why? Because you thought you have arrived at a point where “We” weren’t a possibility no more. A point where you’ll eat everything and catch all the “fun” now, and let the future, your destiny I mean, sort itself out.

Those around weren’t there to love you like they should have. No one cared enough to give the gentle nudge in the right direction. I tried hard to come around, but…you kept pushing me away. You became more and more detached from love, from yourself, and from my reminders and promptings. And instead of letting the flames we both kindled to stay alive, you let it die by giving in to a life of despair. A life without hope, without divine purpose, without love, trust,…without me.

She sighs
Continues

“The passion we both shared was a motivation to others. Everyone was proud and I was grateful for being attached to you.

Now, here I am, locked up at the center of your soul, covered in the dusty memories of a beautiful past. And all I hear from you are complaints upon complaints, and how you couldn’t do, how you couldn’t be , and how you couldn’t have. How nobody is there for you, and how somebody did this or that to you…

You were meant to be a high achiever, a success together. You have greatness, gifts and talents, you’re not touching or even thinking about yet.

The problems you claim are too big and impossible to conquer… They are all beneath your personality.

Your answers, your fire, your passion, your power, they are all within you. I’m willing to help you if only you’ll listen and give in to the force stirring within your Spirit… YOUR DREAMER WITHIN.

Listen as she speaks…

“I’m always near you. When I open my mouth, you know me. I am the one behind your life’s navigation system. I have influenced your decisions at most points of your life.

But lately, you’ve avoided me, neglected me, and treated me like…I’m not there at all. You gave up on me as you made one wrong turn after another, searching, seeking, looking to find what you once held so dearly; love, purpose, peace, joy, and fulfillment…me.
I’m that force that keeps giving you hope; the dreamer inside of you. I make you see the stumbling blocks as stepping stones. But then…you let go and you gradually slipped away.

You put on a smile upon your best clothes. You open up your arms wide to draw all close. Because you seek attention, love, purpose… But, Hey! I’m here. Can’t you see me again. Please take off that mask and see, listen to me again…you know, like you used to. Please be yourself. Just be yourself!

I remember back in the days how we used to be the center of attention. Oh, how big were the plans we had back then. Yes, we were fully aware that there would be obstacles for sure, but, boy, were we young and our hearts bent on reaching for the stars.
Wow! We made a great team, you and I. And it was very obvious to everyone.

I know I should have said this long ago instead of letting things go this far. Now, here you are, standing alone against Jericho-like walls and unable to scale through; walls we onced scoffed together and overcame with so much enthusiasm and fire in our eyes.

Wow!!! Have you become so overwhelmed that you can’t even remember?

THE DREAMER WITHIN

image

How many plans we tend to lay out
How many we end up leaving out.
We fall in and out of life’s course
Just because we fail to stop
And listen to the voice of our dreams.

Ask Joseph, and he may tell you,
“It was the dreamer that was my driving force
Through the ups and downs that I went through
Until I entered the throne room
And everything got settled. ”

You too can achieve anything
If like that bright little child
You would dare to dream and chase again
That child that nothing could deter from this chase
Who only saw himself an achiever.

Just make a stop!
Reflect! And…listen
Listen to the voice of the dreamer within.

Listen as she speaks

To be continued…
