Often times in our lives we spend our days, hours and minutes waiting to have an “aha” moment that will forever transform the way in which we view ourselves as well as the way we view others. The truth of the matter is that you already have everything within you to become who you were predestined to be even before you were formed in your mother’s womb. We are similar to a bowl of gumbo, with our various ingredients, our assorted perspectives, our different upbringings, our varied choices and our bundles of life experiences. We all have a much greater calling upon on our lives that will require a commitment like never before. As you embark upon this journey of greatness you must posse the discipline and dedication combined with a greater level of sacrifice. It is critical to constantly remind yourself that this new season of your life cannot be compared to the seasons and experiences of your past. In an effort to fully evolve into who you were called to be and to do that which you have been hand chosen to do, you have to make a conscious decision to stay the course and refuse to give up. Distractions will knock on your front door, the voices of despair and disillusion will send you text messages and thoughts of giving up will ring your cell phone through the midnight hours. When you have been called to serve as a trailblazing leader, a world changer, a history maker or a curse breaker, your path may not always seem logical but when you are walking with God you can rest in assurance knowing that he will always protect, provide and grant you provision for the journey.
In your moments of waiting, continue to discover the hidden treasures that have been hidden deep down on the inside of you. Be patient during your season of waiting. Remember that patience truly is a virtue and often times that is much easier said than done. Often times too many we move too soon which ultimately results in us not making the healthiest choices for our lives. Be mindful that God may not always show up when you want him to, but he is always on time. Be encouraged in your journey and always remember that the world is waiting to experience you and your greatness.
