On Writing

I always get the urge to write or at least try to and when I start, I don’t finish my thoughts. I get lost in something completely different and my minds sways into a wonderland of “what ifs?” – of things to be or that could be. Like now, could it be that my mind has been filled with so many ideas bottled up and left at sea only to be found, opened again by what seems to be a complete stranger and revealing a heartfelt letter of confessions and dreams? Whatever it is, I only, hope to one day have this complete stranger find something strong that is within me and allowed me to finish what was once started. That wonderland of “what ifs?” will one day become a beautiful reality.

GREATER THINGS 

What inspires you? What makes you tick? Speaks to you? Moves you? Makes you smile? Gives you a sigh of relief? Gets you up and out of bed and ready to face it head on? Ignites the passion and ambition in you? Presents itself time and time again? That’s what you should be fighting for. Accept the challenges, trust yourself, open yourself to the opportunities in front of you. Do not let yourself become your biggest enemy. Love yourself and love what you do. You were made for greater things, let it embrace you.

I believe in you –
in the things that are important to you and in the way you choose to live your life…
I believe that you can accomplish anything you set out to do, that you have many talents
and the wisdom to use them well…
I believe that you have what it takes to overcome obstacles and to grow from every experience
life brings your way…
I believe in your courage, your compassion, your integrity, and your strength. I believe in your goodness…
I believe in you.

Ready or not…

Have you ever thought the things we want we haven’t received because we’re not ready? God is always and still molding us and maturing us and we’re so eager and don’t know how to be contempt in discomfort that we obsess on the things we want and don’t even know we’re obsessing. If it’s not in our lives yet, it’s because we’re not ready. God doesn’t make us go through hoops and fire for the things he already prepared for us. When it’s ours to be, it’ll come so easily you won’t even know how to believe it yourself let alone anyone else believing. I only speak from experience and going back and forth with my relationship with Him. When it does come, I always think wow “I was not ready for that had I received it a year ago or two years ago” You and I are a lot alike whether you believe it or not. Of course not in our personalities but in our stories and emotional trials. Each day that goes by and the older I get, there’s a “test” in front of me. Hate to call it test. An opportunity for me to grow and mature, and I’ve seen how important and valuable building relationships are in this growing and maturing. If I can’t learn to do that with those who are already part of my life – family, friends, coworkers, etc. –  then I am still not where God wants me to be to, where overflow of blessing can come into my life. At the end of the day, the blessings He gives are not yours to keep. We’re on this earth, blessed to be a blessing to someone else. If I can’t do that in my low, then there still plenty room to grow.
