We all have a divine purpose in life to serve. For some, that gift is recognized at a young age, and they seem to float through life fulfilling all their dreams. While others endure much heartache trying to figure out why they are here on earth.
Personally, I know that fear has kept me sidelined for serveral years. Fear of what others may think was a huge obstacle that I had to overcome. But when I finally blocked out the world’s negativity and listened to the Spirit within, I found myself in a beautiful flow. Doors began to open to places that I thought would never be possible.
It is exciting, but it is important not to lose focus. Once you’re in this flow, you must keep your eyes on God because hills and valleys do not disappear when you’re fulfilling your destiny.
Be patient and grateful as you journey through life serving. The greatest joy comes when you look back over your life and see the positive impact you made.
After you say goodbye to 2021, leave it all in the past; the good, bad, and ugly. Do not bring along a single thing. You have learned the lessons, now, continue to grow.
We all need something to look forward to; something that will motivate us. So, make some time in your busy schedules to sit in a quiet spot and write down your goals for 2022. If nothing comes to mind, create a vision board. I have a vision book. Smile.
This year, I have decided to allow the Spirit within me to guide my steps. This will be a great challenge for me because I think I know what is best for me. I pray and ask God for guidance, but before receiving all the details, I take off running. With total surrender, I have to take me out of the equation until I am fully informed. Sounds simple.
The Spirit wants nothing more than to give me the desires of my heart while fulfilling my purpose. So, this year, my plan is to take the passenger seat.
I am excited about my journey through this new year. My year of total surrender.
