It’s a part of the process! I want to encourage you to become all that God has intended for you to be. There is a seed of greatness planted in you. You just have to believe it and then go after what God has planted in you. That doesn’t mean that it’s going to be easy. But it does mean that it will be worth it!
You may have already tried some things that didn’t work. Don’t let that discourage you. It’s all a part of the kingdom process of becoming. At least you now know those things don’t work and you have the ability to save someone else from the experiences you have already gone through. They will thank you for your testimony. Learning what doesn’t work is just as important as learning what does! That’s why the Lord said, “The good and the bad work together for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose!” It’s all a part of the process!
The time you have is valuable. Every day provides you with another opportunity to become better, and more equipped! Don’t waste your time complaining about what didn’t work, didn’t happened or what could have happened! You’ve got a brand new opportunity today to try again or to try something different. That’s why St. Paul said, “Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead. I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me!” He understood that it’s all a part of God’s process!
It may not happen the 1st time or even the 15th time but that doesn’t mean that it’s not going to happen! I’m believing God for not just my blessing, but for your blessing! I’m expecting God to do great things not just in my life, but especially in your life! Greater things than you have ever imagined! Go after your dreams and don’t take no for an answer. This is your season and your destiny awaits you!
The writer Reinhold Niebuhr, the author of the well-known Prayer of Serenity shares, “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change. The courage to change the things I can. And the wisdom to know the difference. The remainder of that prayer reads, “Living one day at a time, Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace; Taking, as Jesus did, This sinful world as it is, Not as I would have it; Trusting that You will make all things right If I surrender to Your will; So that I may be reasonable happy in this life And supremely happy with You forever in the next! Amen!”
In other words, you won’t be able to control everything that happens to you. But don’t let that discourage you. The things you can’t handle, God can. The things you can’t do. God will. You just keep moving towards your destiny. And along the way don’t forget to enjoy the ride and give God the glory for what He is doing in, to, and through you!
God can do it, and He will! It’s all a part of His process!
