Isaiah 28:12 "To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear (KJV)",
Matthew 11:28 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
|God has more than a lot to offer.|
Build the castles in the air and when its time, you bring them down. Just ensure you have the right materials to build. God placed me in my circle of influence to leave an impact. When I’m not fully present, I’m robbing people of what God wants to do in their lives through me. Many however do have a problem locating what their point of greatest impact should be. It's quite easy____what makes your heart pump at a high rate? Find it and keep hold of it. You necessarily do not need passion to do your work and be the best at it. I do not have a passion for eating (yeah, that's work according to physics cos energy is being expended), but I eat well after-all. You just need happiness, and passion is not a prerequisite for happiness. Happiness is a choice. If you doubt, ask Jerry. Despite constantly being tormented by Tom, he's happy after-all.
God is God. I am not, but I am a god still. How? Well, the son of God is a god.
"I said, 'You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High.'(Ps 82:6)
A psalm of Asaph. God presides in the great assembly; he gives judgment among the "gods"(Ps 82:1)
Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are gods'? (John 10:34)
If I remembered who God is and who I am in Him, I would be less likely to work myself to the point of burnout. I have to trust He is working through me and guiding my steps. I have to stop trying to wrestle control from Him.
For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.(Phil 2:13).
Overall, I’ve learned I’m simply supposed to love God, to love people and to laugh whenever possible. This year, I’m going to just focus on following Jesus, and my guess is His strength will get me farther than my own. But how does an ambitious 20 something do that? How do dreams manifest into reality without action I always wonder. Well, the bible is replete with examples of God working where there is seemingly no room for him. We just have to believe in his promises, acknowledge his supremacy and follow his example. There are yet still more revelations to unfold the complexity of such simplicity----That Life could be great after all if only man just follows the initial plan.
