Quote For The Day – Day 88

Our eyes are in front, and not behind, because it’s more important to look ahead than to look back. Do not dwell on things in the past. Learn from them and keep moving forward. – Unknown

In Pursuit of Purpose

IMG_2101
Jeremiah 29:11
I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. (MSG)

Although God knows all things from the beginning, we don’t always understand what the future holds or how God is going to work things out for our good. Yet, the bible teaches us that He has it all in control and He knows what He is doing. I have no doubt of this fact. However, sometimes I wish I had a clue of how He’s going to do it or when He’s going to do it. He works in His own timing and sometimes it seems to take an extremely long time. Lord, teach us how to wait on You!

I recognize that each day is a blessing. I personally don’t want to waste one second of my 24 hour day procrastinating, or being afraid to step out of my comfort zone, or regretting my past. These are traps that paralyze us from moving forward and I refuse to get caught up in that. It is counter productive and will stifle you, if you let it. So, from this day forward, with God’s help and direction, I will make the rest of my life, the best of my life.

I refuse to allow the fear of failure, or the fear of success to hinder me. I will see every stumbling block that is placed before me, as a stepping stone, and use it to keep moving forward. It is my desire to fulfill God’s divine purpose for my life. What that actually entails, I am still discovering. I am in pursuit of purpose and walking by faith and not by sight. I will keep my eyes on the prize. I will remain focused, as I work to fulfill the dreams that God has placed in my heart. My steps are ordered by The Lord. I will make it all the way to my destiny. I will not faint or fall short. I’m all in and I’m going all the way, on this Christian journey. I will remain faithful to my calling, no matter what. – jacquelineswow

It’s Time To Let It Go

December 17
I will know peace when…I learn to let go.

When a thing has served it’s purpose, it will go away. Sometimes it will break. At other times, it will simply die off. Then there are those times when for no reason, it will simply fall apart. There will be tiny pieces that are missing, making it impossible to put the thing back together. When a thing no longer has any purpose in your life, it will go sour. Or it may run away. Or it may pack and leave very abruptly. When a thing has served it’s divine purpose in your life, there is no explanation. There is no excuse. It can not, will not, must not stay in your presence. If you try to hold on to something that has already fulfilled its purpose in your life, you are going to hurt yourself. If holding on is disturbing your piece of mind, it makes sense to let it go.
Until today, you may have been holding on to something or someone, not realizing that it’s purpose in your life has been served. Just for today, surrender all attachments to people and things that you have been struggling to hold on to.

Affirmation: Today I am devoted to releasing everyone and everything that does not serve a divine purpose in my life! – Iyanla Vanzant

Books I Recommend – Maximize The Moment

Maximize The Moment by T.D. Jakes is my book recommendation, for this week.We need to revive the art of reading. Knowledge is power and contrary to some critics, what you don’t know can hurt you. I found this book worth reading! It talks about how to take advantage of every opportunity that God places in your path, with a sense of urgency. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not promised. All we have is right now. Commit to utilizing your time to the fullest. – jacquelineswow
