Why You Can’t Say “Later”

Hi there!

The weekend is over and we are in a brand new week. A week of possibilities. A new week to do what we didn’t do  the week before.

Speaking of, what is holding you back? You’re waiting on the right circumstances? You’re waiting on the exact amount of money? Or perhaps, the perfect mate to build your dreams with.

Well let me tell you, the circumstance will never be just right!! Never. Simply because as humans, once one thing is set, we have another thing we want to be perfect before we start. I know, I tried.

do it

Take that leap of faith today! Faith is not just an 11-1 p.m. on Sunday morning church experience. It is a lifestyle. A journey. What are you waiting for? Do it now. When you put it off, you run the risk of never doing it. This is why you cant say ‘ later’. It has to be NOW!

What will you make the decision to start today.? Share in the comments. Remember one foot in front of the other.

Cast your NETS..

castHi y’all it’s been a while since I have been over here. I missed blogging but God called me to put a story together so I have been writing my debut novel. I’m glad to announce the first draft is done and it’s off to the editors. It has been a drawn out, complicated but fulfilling experience. I have loved reading every since I remember and I love writing short stories, but I have so afraid to commit to a full length novel.  I finally did it and with his grace you all will see it in the Spring, 2013. I’m so excited, more details to come.

Well this experience has taught me a lot, when I first started doing research and found out how many words made a full length novel I was literally shaking. I told my husband “Babe I got a story but I don’t think it will be that long”. So each day I sat down to write, I will be clue less on where to start. Then I will get up and start again. This continued for a month. I wrote my outline but still didn’t have clear direction or maybe that was just an excuse.

Then I prayed, I asked God to give me a story that will affect people, I asked “What do you want me to write Lord? I know what I want to write but is that your message?” Then I just let it be, one day and I kid you not one random day I stood up and started. I attacked my keyboard like never before and didn’t stop till 85k plus words later. Looking at my manuscript I was in awe…..I did that? Are you kidding me? Funny things is I started out not having a clear direction on one story, now I have five lined up..God is soo good.

I share this story to say, anything you commit to the Lord or ask Him for DO NOT under any circumstances limit HIM!! What we think is impossible for us is a breeze for HIM. Do you remember the story of Jesus telling Peter to cast his nets? Luke 5: 4-5  Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. KJV

 Peter obeyed but not totally. Jesus told him cast your NETS, Peter casted only one NET. Since he casted only one NET he was able to harvest only one net worth of fish, although his harvest was a lot, it wasn’t all it could have been.  Was he afraid? Did he think, like most of us do…let me just do this it might work it might not if not no harm. Are we limiting God’s abilities because in our human eyes it’s not possible?

What are you hoping for today? Are you aiming too small? Our God is able to do exceedingly above all…..

Have a blessed day!!
