I spent the last six weeks entrenched with a dynamic group of young people. As always, I end up learning more from them than I could ever teach them. There is something magical about youth and being child-like. Over the course of our time together we bonded as a family. We fought with each other […]
I woke up this morning with a thought,”every person is born with a dream.” It’s true. No matter where you may find yourself presently, there is a dream inside of you. See, the tendency is to think that our circumstances become our identity. You have to be certain that you are here on purpose and for a purpose. This is the truth. I’m not blowing smoke or trying to make you feel good! If you had any idea of how much you are loved and how much faith it took for you to exist, you would know how great you are. See regardless of what your faith may be, there is something to be said that you were born and some didn’t make it to full term. Receive this truth!!! You are not the failures of your life. You are not what others have spoken over you. You are great and cut from a cloth of perfection. Part of what brings clarity to your life is embracing that there is more for your life. My biggest breakthrough with clarity came when I realized that what so many spoke over my life was a LIE. I then began to say to myself “God didn’t bring me to this place to leave like this.” I kept repeating this to myself, through tears and the shooting pains as the lies left my body.
I began to see clearly for the first time in my life. Knowing that there is more for you helps you shift your internal focus towards the dream that you may have neglected. Every successful-dream-attaining-great person goes through a time where nothing in their life makes sense and they go through a very dry, confusing and lonely season. But, what makes them truly successful is that though no one is there to cheer them on, they themselves become their own cheerleader. They begin to say to themselves “there is more than this.” I teach principles. One that you MUST incorporate into your life if you want clarity is: In all your getting, get understanding (Proverbs 4:7). In other words whatever you do get clarity. As I stated in an earlier post, you must be intentional about getting clear about your life. It’s the only way you ever begin to walk into your destiny of greatness. Remember you have the ability to not only change your world, but the world as a whole. Be Great!
