We live in a fast paced society. Technology is moving faster than the speed of light! Social Media has single handily annihilated the game by taking over our entire existence with the addicting pull of that rectangular shaped object with a touch screen. Today’s culture is consuming us with images of what seems to be attractive lives that have the power to influence our desires. With all of this happening around us it’s important to remember YOU in all of it, where so you fit in this panoramic view of life? Where can you make your mark?
As time is passing us by one thing that I always have to remember is that time is NOT on our side. It moves with no hesitation, this is why the NOW is super important. Ecclesiastes 9:10 reminds us that whatever your hands find to do, do it with all of your might because when you die there will be no more chance to work, or plan or anything. The scripture blessed me so much and encouraged me so much to do more because I didn’t want to die with the gifts God gave me. I have always had dreams of doing amazing things for women, for children and for the church. I was never really sure how I was going to do it, and I spent so much time in school and used that as speed retardant to keep me from trying new things! Now don’t get me wrong, going to school was a blessing and it prepared me for the work that I will do in the future but I could have been doing so much more. I would say, “I don’t have the time!’ which was partially true I worked full time and did school full time and was very active in ministry while dating an amazing man. In all of that, I still could have made some time. I have a ton of gifts that I haven’t even begun to tap into and I know that now that I have started working towards sharing my gifts it will be like a flood gate has opened. I just wish I wouldn’t have waited so long even though I know its still not too late.
The scripture in Ecclesiastes reminds us not to die with your legacy, cultivate it, push through. Do it now!! “Now” is so important because it gives a sense of urgency. Now is an adverb that means “immediately”. Whatever dream you have, start doing it now, and with excellence! Don’t be afraid if you have never done it before or you don’t know what you’re doing, just start! Get help if you need it! don’t make excuses! God knew you before you were even though of and knew the gifts he gave you so don’t let that fire inside you die! If you tried and failed, try again! There is room for your gift, there is a market for your brand, there is a seat at the table for you! Come sit with us!!!
