Clearer "Vision" 2021 Translated into Action
I believe that we are all in the hands of the Almighty God and His plans for our lives are still at work....for, in, with and through us. It is important in times like these to be encouraged. Life has presented us with many obstacles. But when you look around, you are still here and handling that which is being presented. The outcome of a thing looks different for each of us. But the choice (s) that you made still brought forth experience. And experience, brings forth wisdom. As you move forth, there are some necessary shifts that must come. We experienced one in the United States of America yesterday as the 46th President and Vice President was sworn in. A necessary shift! We must continue in prayer for the administration. That they are guided and directed in their leadership for all involved. Equally, praying for the protective hand of God to shield this nation.
I believe that necessary shifts will lead to sustainable outcomes and thereby impact our future. Setting boundaries in and for your life is one of the necessary shifts. Only you know what that looks like, but it does put you in some control. Covid 19 made us acutely aware of something that was released and touched the lives of many all over the world. If we were just going through the motions of life, we were now aware that life is short and we must live each day as if it were our last. Our awareness of moving forward during these interesting times and changes allows us to see things differently than what we saw before. We as a people must come to a place that we are connected in some way or another. It is important that we stand together and not divided. Let us be intentional, and in the moment as we move forward with each other. Speak words that are beneficial to bringing forth life. We have much condemnation in the world on every level. Let us make it a point to be the change. Bring forth forgiveness, kindness and much love (which is action) to the family that we abide with (natural and spiritual). Yes, we are individuals but we also are a collective body and we can make a difference with the shift.
We have not been in contact in-person, but we can be personable with each other. The virtual shift for many of us has been a challenge, but it should not change our core values. In fact, it should help others see a more unified people believing in humanity. What we display out of our good moral values gives hope to those that need a push to re-engage in that which they know to be true. It gives others encouragement to stay focused and continue moving forward. We are all in different places in life, but we still have life. It's the beginning of the year, and we have much to accomplish. Use the talents and gifts of which God has graced you. Make the necessary impact in someone's life as you make the necessary shift in your life. I trust that you will continue to have an awesome day.
Remember this, "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you". John 15:7
