It’s kinda late for me. Gosh it’s almost midnight and I haven’t slept. Before you know it it’s time to go to the day job. But I had to come in here and get this out to you. You know when the fire burns you can’t rest until you put it out. This kinda falls in line with what I wanted to talk about today.
We’re still in the beginning stages of the quarter/year and in my last blog post we talked about setting goals and getting things in order. We also talked about how things might not always go according to plan.
That happened to me last week. I met one of my goals but life kinda happened and the others fell by the way side and really didn’t go as I intended. So I find myself staying up late today and possibly tomorrow to get a few things done. Why is it so important to me that I would sacrifice sleep? Simple, I have a destination in mind. Full time entrepreneurship. Now do I know when that is going to happen? Yea and no. I kinda have an idea but I am fully dependent on God and really #InTheDark on when my expected end will get here.
Does that sound familiar to you. There’s something you’re expecting but you have no idea when it would happen. You’re totally #InTheDark but you remain faithful because you confidently expect God to fulfill His promise to you. Remaining faithful in your now while waiting on your next is crucial to reaching your destination. Will it be easy? Of course not but when have you seen anything good come easy? There will be sacrifices you’d have to make and hurdles you’d have to jump.
Obstacles and detours lace the road to fulfilling purpose, pursuing passion/dreams.
Don’t give up until you see what you believe come to pass. So, how do you navigate in the dark? Here are 3 ways I remain anchored #InTheDark
1. Recognize the obstacle. They are not always an outside force, YOU can also be the one standing in your own way.
2. Pick a verse to give you encouragement and affirm it daily through you trial. One of my favorites is Romans 12:12 “rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer,”
3. Be a blessing to others.
No matter what, push through to tap the greatness that lies within.
