Slow & Steady Wins the Race

Happy Thursday Beautiful People,

How many of you know that you can find a message in everything that you do or see. God speaks to us in many different facets and that is why He is so amazing. Yesterday, when I was driving to work there was this car driving in front of me and I was like, oh no this person is driving way to slow for my liking and I needed to pass them so that is exactly what I did. So I lose sight of this car and continue to drive my regular route to work. Guys, you  won’t believe who was in front of me when I got closer to my destination… thats right the same white car that I passed so couple of miles back was now in front of me. I was like this is crazy and just like that God dropped a nugget in my heart.

He said that there are going to be people in your life who pass you by because they feel that you are not going at the speed they want you. However, don’t you fret because everything happens on God’s timing and He will get there when He deems its time. He will place you ahead of those individuals who thought you were to slow and left you in the dust. However, God will never leave you or no forsake. He made us to be the head not the tail. Deuteronomy 28:13, “The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.”   So submit to God in prayer everything that we do and desire. Obey His commandments in order for these things to take place.   Check your motives to ensure that they are pure. You can’t come to God in prayer and have bad motives behind it and think He will elevate you because it doesn’t work like that with our God.  Pure heart equals favor from the Lord.

Running the good race:

Everything happens on God’s time so endure the journey. Just like that driver in white car who was going at their pace because they knew that eventually they would get to their destination despite the impatient individuals surrounding them. We must remember that even if we are slow but steady, we will overcome and win the race.  But we endure and embrace the journey that we are on and don’t rush and trust God’s perfect timing. Remember, 2 Timothy 4:7, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” As encouragement to enduring the race and complete with the grace of the Lord through your faith and His timing.

Simple Minds Can’t Understand Your Dreams

Happy Wednesday Beautiful People,

Last week,  I was at work listening to my favorite thing in the world …….Motivational Speeches. These speeches are the best because it pushes you to strive for more and motivates you to grind toward your dreams well at least in my case it does.  So when one of the speakers said something profound that I know I had to share with you guys.  He touched on that simple minded people can’t understand your dreams. I agree with him on this matter.

 

You ever had a dream and  told someone who you thought would encourage you to follow your dreams yet you got the total opposite. They told you to give up on that dream or ridiculed you about it. They make statements like, “Why can’t you get a normal job!”or “Do something that within your norm!” “You’re  to young or old!” “You dont have knowledge or experience!” “You will never be successful!” I could list a) the types of rants that individuals use as a tactic so doubt is instill in us which leads to us not accomplishing our dreams.

I realize the reason that people say those things because simple minded people can’t understand your dreams or visions. It’s okay for them live the “Leave It to Beaver” lifestyle but don’t allow them to deter you from your dreams. This is because there are people who can’t imagine themselves doing things that you dreamed of doing or intimidated by your dream. They can’t get pass the concept of stepping out of the box and doing something that goes against their norm. Those are not the people that you need not to surround yourself with. You need to find like-minded people who will encourage you, motivate you and support you especially when it comes to making your dreams your reality. Nobody wants a Debbie Downer in their corner tearing them down about something that they are passion about.

Until next time

 

Peace, Love and Fashion,
