We all make plans and sometimes they may amount to nothing more but wishful thinking. Projects that appeal to us: unfinished. Languishing in the back of the closet for decades, ones that we lost interest in or that life happened and we were distracted enough to set aside. It seems that even though they may be hidden far in the back of our mind, they never go away. Every once in a while you think about it, a smell, a photo, or some memory triggers your locked dreams, and you go there to the back of your mind.
It may be bittersweet, or even painful, but you are compelled to go there, and sometimes you promptly shut the door, again. I challenge you, today, to act on your goals and unfulfilled ambitions. It could be that the Lord is waiting for you to obey his will. It could be that it’s time, and for whatever reason, be it lack of faith or fear, you couldn’t act on it. It’s time to, as the slogan goes, “Just Do It.”
I don’t know why this even became a topic for the Lattereign, this week. Maybe I’m only speaking to myself. Life is so short, and we are not promised tomorrow, but one thing is for certain, we must live for today, as if we didn’t have much time left. How many lives could be impacted by the decisions that you make, today: to share a testimony, to empathize with someone who is hurting, to be a light in a darkened world? You can and do make a difference. The decisions you make will influence everything and everyone around you. That is a great responsibility, that we must not take lightly.
I believe God. He is the author and the finisher of my faith. He leads me through the darkness. He is the light of my soul. He is my strong tower. So, with all that he’s done for me, how can I not, “Just do It.”
In this week’s Lattereign, we learn that The Secret to Success is Not a Secret.
It requires obedience, faith, trust, and willingness to keep walking forward. May the Lord bless you as you learn to walk with him.
