Last post we were talking about the desires of your heart and that there is a reason for them being there. We covered the first thing you should know about that and here is the second half to that….
Secondly, it’s not necessarily about who you know or measurable your credentials are! There are plenty of people out there with credentials and degrees that they are not using for their intensive purposes that school was supposed to prepare them for! There are also plenty of people who have knowledge and skill in certain areas, but their people skill and their willingness to remain teachable is lacking.
Keep in mind that not everyone is meant to be in your personal circle and sphere of influence. Keep in mind that not everyone can go where you are going. There will always be people that are in support of you, but then there are also people who will pretend to be and people who are not. This is why it is important to be careful with who you open yourself up to, who you allow in your inner circle, and who you allow to hold you accountable. Make sure that the people you let in have wisdom, knowledge, and results in these areas that you are seeking advice from.
Last post I was discussing with you the banquet I recently had attended in which our head pastor had a shared a very important video with us reminding us of why it is we serve in the church.
In this video shared were just a few testimonials of members who had moved to Florida and began attending a brand new church on faith. Some of these members were young and others were old. I could not help, but be touched by how they went from nothing, lacking vision, in despair, without hope to having vision, dreams, and purpose again. Each shared one common denominator, ‘whatever you do, there is a person out there who needs your help, don’t give up.’ Such a simple, yet powerful sentence.
