Rise Up and Purposefully Achieve!

Rise Up and Purposefully Achieve!

posted in: Ruminations | 0

Saturday brought so much cares and worries with all the upcoming deadlines and seemingly impossible tasks to accomplish… The people you expected to show up seemed to be at the ends of the earth and locked themselves in address-less dens. You wait, you work, you hope until the night’s darkness consumed every bit of sparkling light left of your ever-altruistic mind. Okay, you sleep for a while, waiting for Sunday to say hello…

The sun’s rays started to peak through the window but this is like one of those Sundays that’s a little heavier in the heart to wake up to… Saturday has been harsh and you feel like a failure for not having accomplished the tasks meant to be completed yesterday. You panic and worry, voices tell you it’s impossible and you won’t achieve anything today…

You mechanically reach out to people you need to meet up for your projects and they are still unavailable… Your bed screams at you to just return and sulk for the day – pity party on a Sunday  is the theme!

Then you bow down to pray… You reason out with the Lord and bare all your cares before His throne room of grace. You meditate on His word — “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord,”plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11. You feel His embrace and assurance of favor and grace. You need no other to back you up and say yes…

You dress up, you smile, you decide to go out and achieve the things the Lord will lead you to do… You look in the mirror and say, “You are going out to conquer today. The Lord will send people your way. Things will happen. The impossible will have to bow down and give way to beautiful miracles for the day!”

You open the door, step out and you smile — 1 giant conquered as you purposely decided to achieve and win! That giant is YOU.

More giants to fall before you this purposeful Sunday!
