Have you ever looked back over your life and wondered, “Where did I loose my focus? Why did I give up on the plan for my life? And did I settle for less?
October began the 4th quarter of the year and a reminder to finish strong. As an advocate of the Holy Bible, I adhere to Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. This scripture exemplifies the predestination of God’s will for our lives. Prior to the introduction to the natural world we live in, God created a narrow path for great prosperity for those who walk in obedience.
While it appears that getting off focus is not disobedience, it certainly is. When you are assigned a task, pertaining to your life, no excuse is acceptable for you not to complete it. We cannot be moved by any wind or doctrine that comes along, we must stay focus! Regardless to how miniscule you feel your plan is stay true to it. You plan matters and you must keep your eyes on the prize. Great ideas are a dime a dozen but only those who complete the ideas get to enjoy the finish product.
Ask yourself today, what am I really called too? Am I working towards my Purpose and what I am doing, does it bring me unspeakable joy? Could I do this for the rest of my life and wake up with a smile on my face?
This past weekend, I was privileged to be a part of a panel at the Christian Women in Training shut in hosted by Dr. Linda Chinn at Fully Rely on God Church. I was equally honored to expose a select group of young women to this occasion from my ministry, My Favorite Charities. The theme was Regroup, (“Reaching Every Goal Regardless of Unseen Problems”. It catered to young girls from 13-22. Through every line of pain and glory, Dr. Chinn resounded with a loud voice, “ladies Regroup.” She explicitly defined the meaning of passion, which means pain and the word crucifixion, which means to be delivered from excruciating pain. She and the other women poured out their hearts expressing Jesus death represented his passion for them and their individuality.
I adopt and express the sentiments of Dr. Chinn, let’s Regroup and Focus. It is time to occupy the space you were created for. No-one can stop you but you. It’s time to Regroup!
