New Year. My encouragement to you is to LIVE this New Year with vision
and purpose! Set goals and don't stop going for them. Place God first
getting there and follow Him! He will never fail you! Don't quit because
God won't quit on anything you take to Him in prayer!!
Proverbs 3:5-6: 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6acknowledge Him in all your ways, and he will make your paths straight. Acknowledge Him in ALL YOUR WAYS. Not just some but all your ways! This is the New Year and a lot of us are going to make a lot of resolutions to change our lives for the better. We are going to think of ways that we really want to grow in some form or fashion. The thing I encourage you to do is to LIVE this new year with vision and purpose. Think by the end of 2012, you want to see this situation change or to be at a plateau that you have set for yourself. Now I want you to live with purpose. DEVOTE your time and energy to make this a reality for yourself. we are going to have to sweat hard to make some of our dreams into a reality and this time is no different. Go out and make your dreams a reality. Stop sitting around waiting for things to happen. More than likely it's waiting on you to do something. Set your goals and don't stop going for them no matter what is happening in your life. Don't quit at all. It is not worth it to quit on your dreams when you probably aren't as far away as you would think. Now the first and last thing I want you to do is to put God first. Place God first! God will make a way for you. Cry out to God to make your dreams a reality. Ask God to make your heart's desire come into fruition! Be direct. No need to beast around the bush! Be direct with the Lord. If you don't know what to do or how it's going to happen ask god to make a way! God is able to do just what He said He will do! Do not place the same limitations on God that we have a tendency to place on ourselves. Remember, if we are calling God to make something happen we are already acknowledging that He is the only one able to do this because we know we can't. The strength that we need to bear our burdens, the answers to questions we don't know how they'll be answered, etc. I have never seen the righteous forsaken and YOU WILL NOT BE THE FIRST!! I REPEAT: YOU WILL NOT BE THE FIRST. God will not quit on anything that you take to Him in prayer so you had better not stop yourself! God is a good and faithful God. He will make it happen! You live with purpose like everyday was meant to happen! You live with purpose that you believe today will be the change in your life that you want to see. Will you encounter some days where you won't feel as inspired knowing you've endured for so long? I guarantee you will. But Saint, don't give in. I am asking you to hold on just a little while longer and watch the Lord work with you. When God shows up, He is going to blow your mind with all the He is going to do!...Be Blessed...
