So many of us are wanting to move from where we are to where we desire to be. We are so tired and fed up with where we are, yet we want to move NOW. I have been in that place many of times. Even as I am writing this, I have realized that we all need help, no matter where we are in life. Every great person that you know, has a coach. I use to think I could get there alone. Even in the Bible, when Jesus sent out the disciples, He sent them out 2 at a time. He knew that we couldn’t do it alone.
In this journey, I have learned so much. And coming from a place of being homeless and losing everything I had, I was hurt. I did not want help from anyone. I figured, “what could you tell me that would change my life or the trajectory of my life?” Welllll……the answer to that is LIFE. It is so unbelievable that God sends the exact person into our life at the exact time that we need them. They impart things within us that we need to move. They stir up gifts and talents that have already been placed within you. They speak life through encouragement and inspiring your NOW to get you to your NEXT. Most people are selfish and tend to keep and hoard the gifts that God has given them. God says in Matthews 25:14-30, “For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey.” God called us and gave us each gifts, talents, skills and abilities. What are you doing with the gifts that God has placed in you? I remember asking my daughter a while back, and I am not sure where I heard or seen this; but I asked her “where is the richest place in the world?” And after naming so many beautiful places, she was shocked to realize that, that place was the grave. So many people died with the gifts and talents God gave them. Even before they became a doctor, nurse, lawyer, teacher, mechanic, cook, or anything else that we chose as a career. He had a plan before we were created. Even though we are all one body, there are parts of the body that will not work if we don’t have use of another part of the body. 1 Corinthians 12:12-27
God places wisdom that you have, that I will need; and vise versa. If I can say one thing about being in the wilderness place of my walk with God; I learned the most pivotal lessons I could have ever learned when I depended completely on God alone. I even say to God everyday, “Father, please do not allow me to rush or get to where You are taking me, without perfecting in me all that I need. I do not want to get to that place and not be able to steward it because I was impatient and didn’t retain the pressures of life. Once we tend to get the so-called “good gifts”, we forget where God brought us from. I am growing in my walk, yet I know my gifts. I am walking in my calling because God allowed someone to cross my path to speak the LIFE He had already planned for me in the beginning.
