Good Morning my brothers and sisters in Christ. I pray you’ve spent the week living intentionally and with purpose. As we are on our journey to becoming who God created us to be there will be times that we feel discouraged in our well doing. The word of God says,
“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.”
Being new to the blogging world I’ve already found myself being drawn into the anxiousness of counting my followers. I believe most new bloggers have had this happen to them. As for me, it’s not so much the recognition that I’m anxiously awaiting. It’s the ability to have a platform where I can share with His children what our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has done and is doing in my life. It’s the desire to want to tell how God delivered me from my sins, forgave me, cleansed me, and changed my identity. It’s the position of wanting to be used by the Father to spread His word so that others can also be changed. In the midst of my anxiousness, the Holy Spirit reminded me,
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”
I was so anxious about doing my part in the Kingdom that I was getting away from the fact that His work is still being done in me. I was posting under the directive of the Holy Spirit to encourage the body of Christ, and He showed me what He really was doing was answering one of my prayers. I’ve prayed for the last several months about being consistent and disciplined. This blog along with other ventures has positioned me to be just that. So even though I pray that Mindful of Me Moments reaches the multitude, which it will do one day. Right now God is developing the woman He created me to be so that when the multitude comes I am in the proper position to handle it. We have to be equipped to handle the weight of the vision and I’m still in training. Ultimately, I desire for my brothers and sisters to be changed. I desire for you all too continually develop on your journey to self-care through Christ and that same thing that I’m praying for you is exactly what God is doing in me. He is changing and developing me every day.
Mindful Quote: “Don’t under develop yourself while you’re on your journey to helping someone else.”
What’s the takeaway today? If you have heard from God and He has given you a vision for your life. Continue to focus on growing your relationship with Him first. When you do that He will give you instruction on when and how to develop your vision. God gives us a vision of what’s to come. He gives the vision to us as a glimpse of what His plans are for us. (As long as we stay connected to Him) In order to be the change, you have to first be changed. The Lord is allowing me to learn something new every day about me.
Don’t be discouraged in early beginnings. These are the times to prepare for the vision. Be consistent. Be disciplined. Be obedient to Christ. Have Faith and Do Work. Blessings.
