WOW! I don't know about anyone else, but 2010 was an AWESOME year... I mean - it just was. I experienced some of the hardest challenges in my life, but I overcame each of them - and will continue to do so. I just want to share my heart a little about what I am going to focus on for this year.
There are so many of you that will read this that are multi-talented, multi-faceted, the jack-of-all-trades - and master of many... Some of you wear many mantles, and have authority in different areas and can do MANY THINGS! YET... 2010 - you produced much of... NOTHING...
Yep- I said it. Much of nothing. You had a thousand reasons why you could not produce, and a million reasons why those excuses were true - and a trillion more of why your ideas and thoughts were stupid. You know, enough- is enough. I know this applies to me - I was productive in 2010 - probably more productive in 2010 than I have ever been spiritually. Now its time for another level. Your talent, your anointing, your gift - your calling means absolutely nothing if you never utilize it. This is the year to move forward. It honestly is. For me, I feel that if I don't complete the goals that I have set this year - that it will be along time before the grace will come around to get it done. I believe for me this is the year that can determine my next 5 years if I do what I am supposed to do. This is the year that will change my income, my life, my focus, and many other things ---- if I COMPLETE MY GOALS.
I just cussed... Excuse me... LOL
Yes - I said GOALS...
It is time to name your distractions, analyze your fears - and "kick dem ninja's to the curb" - yes - I had to get a little ghetto to get my point across.. Its time. Who cares how many people by your book if God told you to write it?
Who cares how many people will hear your songs if God told you to sing them?
Who cares how many will support your kingdom business if God told you to start it?
WHO CARES how many people read your blog (talking to me) and listen to your podcast if God told you to do it???
Because success is never in numbers... ASK GIDEON. #imjustsayin
We play the numbers game so much, we reflect on who likes us, who doesn't like us, who we need to know, who we need to let go- and the truth of the matter is - Life is filled with many serendipitous moments as you walk in the path that God has led you on.
Click the link to find out what serendipity means... but its just the surprises in life. Those GOOD surprises - you know, those kind that make you smile... So many times people are walking around looking for the surprises instead of walking the path, and just walking up on it.
For example... We all like finding money on the ground right? How dumb would it look if we walked around all day long, with our face to the ground - looking for money? How much would we miss? What would we run into because we weren't watching where we were going? I mean - really - but thats what we do sometimes. Keep waiting on the surprises and the unexpected check, or for someone to walk up to you to give you a million dollars or a record deal - instead of living your life, walking the path God has ordained - and allowing the moment to come up on you....
The bible calls it "Seek ye first"
So I said all of that to say....
