During a cool summer night as I lay in bed talking to God, I let him know I wasn't where I desired to be. My bank account, my education, my living place, the list went on and on. I wanted a new vehicle and a new home, but I knew financially I wasn’t there yet. As I lay in bed looking at the reality of my situation, I realized that no one was coming to give me those things which I desired.
I was not getting a free vehicle, nor would someone just give me my dream home. My books weren't going to magically appear on the shelves in the store. None of this would happen if I sat here waiting. The next level of living I desired to experience could only come from a next-level faith. A next-level dream. A next-level work ethic.
As I lay in my bed, I reflected on how the last six months of my life I had gotten comfortable and rarely had a passion to go after these dreams. I saw how my comfortable living situation made me lose a desire to want more. I saw that if I kept going at this level, years would pass me by and my dreams would still not be realized.
I share this with you because the next moment is when everything changed. Instead of laying there hoping and being frustrated, I realized that no one was coming to save me. Jesus had already done that part, and now it’s my time to do all I can with what I've been given. I sat in my bed and saw how I still had life, I still had air in my lungs, an able body, an able mind, and I could run. I could run that day forward after my dreams like I'd never run before. This was my chance. This was my awakening moment. That everything I desired was on the other side of how much I am willing to work and believe.
I had been praying to God about a breakthrough, an open door, an opportunity to experience more in my life, and that was my breakthrough. The realization that I must work at the level of the blessing I desire to obtain. I must serve at the level of the blessing I desire to obtain, and if I wasn’t willing to work, then it wasn’t God withholding them from me…it was me stopping me.
Sis, God has already given you the blessing to be great. The rest is up to you.
