Stop Waiting for Permission ~Ava Duvernay~
So what are you waiting for? How long have you been putting off that one thing you’ve been wanting to step out and do? Well today is the day that you start walking towards reaching your goals and moving into your future and destiny.
Isreal Houghton penned a song with these words: “I’m not going back, I’m moving ahead. Here to declare to you my past is over, in you All things are new are made new, surrendered my life to Christ, I’m moving FORWARD!”
Can you imagine what you will be able to accomplish if you would just take the first step? How far would you go if you knew that each step you took, took you to the possible, the imaginable, the very thing you’ve been saying you were going to do? I know for me, I wouldn’t stop until I had EVERYTHING that was promised to me.
What has God shown you? What has He promised you? What have you been believing Him for? And what has stopped you from going after it, believing Him for it, and trusting in His promises and His word? I get it, I mean man do I get it. The last few years have been, well, HELL FOR ME! I mean, have you ever had to endure the hardest days of your life with a smile on your face? I mean, have you ever questioned God as to why you? I mean, seriously, have you ever just been like, WTW (mine was not quite the W though…lol) Honestly, between you and me, I seriously had my days when I questioned and doubted God’s love for me…BUT….then I remember that He never promised it would always be easy. That there would be good days and bad days sometimes, but to never let the bad days change your mind (Oh wait, that was PJ Morton…lol) but you get my point!
God has promised that He will never leave you nor forsake you! And as you start your New Beginning and head in the direction towards your New Year, move forward with the rest of Isreal’s song in your mind, “You make all things new, and I will follow you forward!” Our assignment for today is to write down 3-5 fears that are holding you back from moving forward and 1 solution for overcoming each of them. I also want you to begin to search for scriptures or motivational sayings to help encourage you as you continue to move forward.
We may not be like Cardi B, making money moves, but we are definitely on our way to making moves.
Here’s to your New Beginning!
