If you have a desire to be a certain someone doing a certain something… HAVE TOU done anything in this life that would lean you towards that decision? Have you read articles about doing this certain something?
Watched a training?
Taken a class?
Listened to a podcast?
Read a book?
Talked to someone who is doing what you’re interested in? Get their insight. How they did what they did and got where they are. Was there a game plan?
Have you done one thing to push you in the direction you want to go?
Have you talked yourself out of it?
Have you told yourself you just can’t?
It’s too hard? But what if you did what was hard and reached for your hopes and dreams?
Have you thought “what if I did get the training? “
What if I did grow my skills, and learn more and become more knowledgeable could I get closer to what I’m thinking and dreaming about?
Instead of staying in the same spot and never trying- There is more. There is more. There is more.
God says if you go after wisdom, and if you go after understanding, he will honor that and help you. Wise people BECOME wise. Smart people BECOME smart. We’ve all seen rich people lose everything. And we’ve seen very talented people end their own life. They seemed to have the more but not the wisdom to navigate what they had. God says when you seek him, He will help you, guide you, lead you and direct you. His plans are good. Jeremiah 29:11 says “I know the plans I have for you are good and not evil.” Circumstances that are man made and not God made shouldn’t be our map, game plan or guide book. We can become wiser, smarter, stronger, hopeful and intentional when we know what God says about us and our life. He says He sent his son Jesus to give us life more abundantly. John 10:10
His word is a great source of wisdom and understanding. Proverbs and Psalms are great books of the Bible to read. Grow in your faith. Gods word can bring light to your situation –
Here is where I start. Read a chapter in Psalm, a chapter in Psalm. Pray and ask God to help you in your day. Do what you need to get done (Joshua 1:8,9) and ask God to protect you, (Psalm 91) and lead you, help you (Isaiah 41:10) and open the door to His destiny for you.
It’s a good place to begin.
