From the first moment our church choir started rehearsing Maurette Brown Clark’s “It Ain’t Over”, a stirring began deep within me.
For as long as I can remember I have fought through some sort of setback or obstacle just to do anything worthwhile. I think it would have been far easier for me to either accept things as they are or just sit down somewhere and do nothing. But what I have learned is this:
- We are here on this earth for a purpose, and we must try to keep moving forward until we have reached our destination.
- Without living out our purpose, life is very bland and meaningless. I have discovered that attaining one’s purpose and life satisfaction are closely linked. This matters even if you have plenty of money in the bank, as many people are rich and dissatisfied.
- The longer it takes for me to see my dreams become my daily reality, the more restless I become.
Nowadays, working on projects (at my paid job and otherwise) is not something I do just to pass the time. I am pushing HARD to meet self-imposed deadlines, gaining guidance and revelation from the Holy Spirit our Comforter and gleaning advice from mentors (as compared against the Word of God, the Bible) daily. I am at a different place than where I was just one year ago. Jan 1, 2010 and Jan 1, 2011 are almost worlds apart for me. Day by day new ideas come to mind, and I am working diligently to put in place all I have been given.
I must say this to those reading this blog entry: Keep fighting. Keep praying. Keep fasting. Keep growing. Keep going. It Ain’t Over! Stay the course. Keep reading. Keep interceding. Keep believing.
And don’t stop dreaming! This blog website is a product of one of my dreams.
