Last Sunday morning I was inspired by a message. It was one I absolutely needed to hear. The greatest moments in life, I find, are those that inspire and create change. Good change, forward momentum and a life of action and purpose are inspiring. Sometimes we get diverted from those plans and purposes. Sometimes those things are not bad things in and of themselves but if they take away from something greater, something better, then how good can they be?
So I ask…
What is your direction?
Is it pointed the right way, to the right destination?
I’m not just talking about lifetime goals but also the goals for each season of life. Are you where you want to be? Are you who you want to be? Are you headed in the direction you wish to be going? These are all simple questions of course. But it’s important to ask them.
When is the last time you evaluated your own life?
Ouch right? Well maybe not for you.
It is so easy to evaluate others lives, to point out their own need for improvement. Let’s not forget friends… they could have a longer list of improvements for you than you would like to know.
What kind of world would it be, if we all stepped off the racetrack of life and looked at ourselves from someone else’s perspective? Aimed to improve on some qualities we may have tried to hide in the past or at least forget about. What if we all aimed to be a better version of ourselves? I’m not asking you not to be you. But I am asking you not to sell yourself short. Stop believing that you’re not good enough, smart enough, capable enough to be better, to show improvement. Do the work and finish the work you once started. How many of us have started something GREAT? Overtime we loose sight of the end goal, purpose and plan. It is now time to pick the plan up and start working to finish it.
We have been created, called and sent for a purpose. What’s your purpose? What’s your plan? When are you going to finish it?
