I have made mistakes. In more ways than one. More times than I care to count.
I’ve made decisions based on being hurt, lonely, and listening to the wrong people.
At times, I was strong enough to fight against it. I wasn’t seeking or making myself available for certain things because I knew I wasn’t geographically in the right place. In hindsight, I wasn’t emotionally or spiritually as well.
Where are you?
Are you ready for what you’re asking for?
Fruit that is eaten before it’s ripe is disgusting. Old fruit past its ripeness is too.
It is totally plausible that you know where you’re going and what’s coming. I did too. That’s how I knew I wasn’t in the right place.
But. This bag of bones and dirt will have us unfocused and off track, liable to make something happen too soon or miss the boat.
I’ve said it before, and the Bible is the source, if we abide in Him and His word abide in us, according to His will and the relationship we cultivate, we will be asking for what He wants of us.
Often times I’ve been frustrated waiting on Him to do something that was never His will or desire for me. He protected me from me.
So, let’s take stock. Where are we? Are we asking for the right things? Are they the things He desires? Or are they desires of this bag of dirt and bones?
Go be great. Someone’s counting on it.
