Ask Yourself


Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. 
Proverbs 19:21

In today’s world, we move fast, maybe too fast. Fast is good as long as it is in the right direction. And although in today’s world we need to constantly remind ourselves to slow down and appreciate the little things, nature, and its beauty all around us The Passing of Time & Glasses of Water [Life In The Present]. We also must keep on pace with our dreams and aspirations of what God's is calling for each of us.

Is this the life,
You've been waiting for?
Or are you hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more?

Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;
his understanding is beyond measure.
Psalm 147:5 

In life, things don’t go exactly as they were carefully coordinated and planned by you. But maybe the person making the all plans (you) was not correct person to making the plans in the first place. In time, God reveals his secrets easily to all his children, but if you were not listening at the present time then it was most likely ineffective, only to be understood more thoroughly in the future. What happens is many people get discouraged too quickly for the glories of God’s plan takes time, effort, and determination/perseverance. However, the great thing about God's Love and plan is that we are all capable, at any time in our lives, of doing what we dreamed of, no matter how old or young you are, experienced or inexperienced, etc.. As long as you read the signs that He has left for you, God has prepared a path for you to follow at any point in your life. 

Remain in me, as I in you 
John 15:4 

Potential 
You have infinite potential. Now I am not trying to make you feel like you are not doing enough in your life. We all have things we are called to do and if you are truly happy and feel inspired for why you are then that is what it is all about! Everything I have said up to this point has little to do with your job/career, but so much more with your spirit, character, your calling, and the actions to be part of this world in making a better change for everyone around you and for future generations. You can do anything, make anything, dream anything. If you can change the world in the smallest way, the world will change.

“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.” ~ William Faulkner

Each day, brings a life of its own
Do not let every day become the same, because when each day becomes the same as the previous and next it’s mostly because people fail to recognize the good things are happening in their lives every day that the sun rises.

Therefore, keep focused to God’s Word, He is consistently reminding you to live in the present. If you live in the present, you can improve upon it. Forget about what happened in the past and what is to come in the future. Live the day existing only in the present according to the teachings, confident that God Loves his children.

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” ~ Leo Buscaglia

While you are living in the present, stay the course. Your “calling”, dreams, and purpose is constantly be revealed to you. All you have to do is actually slow down to pay attention to the signs in order keep up the pace (yes, we are back to slowing down). We need to constantly slow down each day, take 5 to 15 minutes to unplug, wait and listen. This in turn will keep your life going in the right direction as fast as you want, without crashing… Each of you have the strength and determination to seek out God's plan for you, don’t let everyday life just carry on without at least trying. Living each day with trust and determination results in true peacefulness, but also an understanding that you can still accomplish more in life because of God's Love. 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Is this the life you've been waiting for?
Well ask yourself!

All people who are happy have God within them.
