So it’s day 2 of #journeyto40series. I’m going to have lots of fun doing this. I feel it’s also going to be a lot of soul searching. Reliving some past experiences, sharing some of my absolute favorite things, scriptures that have changed my life, who knows?
What I do know is A lot of unplanned things will happen so please come back everyday there will definitely be something for you here. And oh! I get to do some give aways just because….
Yes! I’m sweet like that. Even if I say so myself.
So today, I couldn’t quite decide what to go with first until this
Actually the first 3 letters are enough for me to preach a series on.
I know the message translation says it different than others but in whatever version the message is still clear
If you don’t BEGIN with God then you’re sunk.
The Bible makes it clear that Until God came on the scene there was NOTHING. Everything was chaos. Darkness. No insight. No form. Just a black pool of nothingness.
Isn’t that how our lives are though? Without God? Life is without form or void. You may not even know how much your life lacks until God steps in.
The amazing thing is once he steps in the first thing he calls forth is light
Once God comes on the scene light comes and dispels the darkness.
Over the years I’ve learned that if I’m going to succeed at anything my mindset must be that of Genesis 1:1
Like the first thing to focus on – God.
I love how the message translation puts it
So first things first … GOD!
Nothing else comes first. God being first should be a natural response to everything in your life. It should be the natural order.
God being priority should determine where you live, what you drive, what you wear, how you live, whom you love. You shouldn’t be trying to fit God unto your “hustle” He should be your “hustle” and all other things will be added.
I know it can often seem like obeying God doesn’t make natural sense so you try to do it all then let God in just to “bless your hustle” but let me tell you ever since I made a conscious effort to focus on God as my priority my life has been indescribable
NEVER!!!! I’m a living witness. A lot of times this is the secret to to my looking like a mega star. I simply in the beginning… let God! That’s wisdom right there. Why struggle? When someone knows the way why sit in the drivers seat if you are going to be guessing?
No point having to sing
Don’t even get into the driver seat. It’s been one of my biggest secrets to always let God take the lead. I don’t go till he tells me to go. I don’t speak till he asks me to. If I’ve started without him once I ask him in and he brings light, I see how feeble what I’m building is.
Trust me, it has changed my life. It can change your life too. But hey! Why take my word for it? Try it for yourself.
See you tomorrow
