In my mind I am a world-renowned author with a couple of best sellers under my belt. I have never quite viewed myself as average. I have always known that my destination here on earth is far more than I could ever fathom. It is imperative that while we are on our road to greater things that we never lose sight of why we began in the first place. Think back on when you first started whatever it is that you’re pursuing. You were inspired, you never felt defeated, and you were thriving and striving doing whatever it was that you needed to do in order to keep moving forward. But, like any journey, we are met with many obstacles and trials along the way. Our trials become burdens and our burdens later become our excuses for choosing to no longer follow through with our visions.
I have news for you, for as long as you have breath in your lungs you are capable. You are able. You are enough. You are only all of the above for as long as you believe, the moment you stop believing, the moment you give your vision(s) the chance to fade into the distance. As we all know all great things take time. I am not one of those people who pretends that she has never lost her fire. I am not one of those women who preach something without practicing it. I have to lift myself back up EVERY SINGLE day. It is my desire to win, but more importantly my faith in my God that keeps me moving forward.
Can I ask you, what is that you believe to be true about you? Think about that for a moment…
With all that you have going on in your life at this very moment who do you believe that you are? What do you believe that you are capable of? There is nothing about me that is average or built for mediocrity. While I embrace my humble beginnings I know that I am blazing a trail for a future brighter than I could ever imagine. My spirit has felt it for as far back as I could remember. I have always known that I was created for a life of magic, a life of abundance. A life of great measure. A life that is inspiring to the world.
Roman’s 8:18 tells us, “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed to us-ward.”
Trust that there is no obstacle, no burden or struggle of your present life to be compared to what you have ahead of you. As I blaze this trail in life I know that I am reaching for more than titles. I am reaching for stability. I never sought fame or fortune because to be honest I’ve always worked great jobs to acquire the things that I desire. I seek substance. I seek significance. I seek to be a servant to God and all of you. The power of living a purposeful life supersedes anything you could ever conjure up. What is ahead for me is sure to set my past on fire and the same applies for you. I ask that before you consider giving up on yourself, think about who you were the very first day that seed of inspiration was planted inside of you. The roads may be rough, you may get weary and you may even lose hope, but in this life we walk by our faith not by sight. Keep fighting. Keep persevering, keep pressing forward. We are in this together. We will propel together. Work hard and keep God first. Don’t you dare give up on you because giving up isn’t an option!
Be Inspired. Be Encouraged. Be Blessed.
