Have you ever heard of the phrase “your new life will cost you your old life”? That is the same analogy when you are creating a vision board.
Yes, you may have fun creating your future by yourself, with friends or family but the reality is you have to be willing to let go of somethings in order for God to replace it with something better.
Your vision board should focus on how you feel, not just on the things you want. What is your purpose? What do you want in your life? Take a moment and think about it. Most people have no idea, or at least are afraid of actually knowing the answer. Becoming clear on what you truly want is the single most important step to discovering your life purpose.
How can you become clear on what you truly want if you have no idea what that looks like?
Today, I am giving you permission and encouraging you to trust the process as you begin to heal, release whatever it is that is blocking you from manifesting your heart desires, which ultimately leaves you feeling frustrated, hopeless trying to figure it all out, and overwhelmed to say the least.
The first thing we must remember is God knows the plans he has for us before we were placed here on this earth.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me, I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13
We all have been given a unique set of gifts that God has given us so that we can fulfill His purpose in our lives. If you've ever felt like you don't how to pursue your purpose then seek him first. Ask God to order your steps and make it clear on how he wants you to carry out His will. It is also important to know that God will not require you to fulfill something that he has not or won't equip you to do. Your gifts are connected to your purpose and when you get closer to God, you will begin to understand the vision as it will become more clear.
There is no need to rush ahead of God. becoming defiant to Gods will can cause you to encounter a Jonah experience. Jonah had a hard time trusting God and not being submissive unto his will. Jonah ran away and jumped on a boat with some unfamiliar sailors. As they began to start sailing, a storm abruptly caused the ship to start sinking.
Jonah had no choice but to get off the boat. It was then we he stayed in the belly of the large fish and called out to God with his earnest prayer.
Will life happen? Yes, but that doesn't mean we move through life on our own terms. We are challenged everyday to be obedient and stay in his will. We are tested through circumstances to see how much we trust what God is telling us. As I stated earlier, he already has our lives planned out. So lets take the steps to finding out who we are and whose we are so we can get clear on why we are.
Are you ready?
