“For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels— everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him…So spacious is he, so roomy, that everything of God finds its proper place in him without crowding. Not only that, but all the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe—people and things, animals and atoms—get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of his death, his blood that poured down from the cross.” Colossians‬ ‭1:18&20‬ ‭MSG‬‬

‘Mornin’ DearOne,

Simple 3-step-gimmicks-and-you’ll-be-a-success crack me up. They are so. . . well, prepackaged. Now, this is going to fly all in the face of my “proper” educator comrades, but I’ve worked with a lot of business owners and CEO’s and the thing I find most intriguing is that the most successful are the ones that quit questioning, and quit checking the next-step boxes off the list, and quit wondering whether they had what it takes to get it, and just laid their guts on the line and went after it. They just started believing in it, and they started creating the thing.

Their charge is bigger than the doubt. And, they unload and go. Suddenly, the next-step was chasing them down and they found their way. 

Let’s be real. There are no –pre-packaged steps to operating in your “place” in this life. You’ve never been here before. NEITHER HAS ANYONE ELSE. Let that sink in a sec. This place belongs only to you. These are the people God has placed here to get you moving. This is the place where you have been planted for His purpose to grow in you. This is your soul-territory. Only yours. 

What if Dr. Martin Luther King had given his “I have a Dream” speech, then sheepishly said, “but, I don’t know guys . . . do you think anyone will go for it?” What if he had kicked off his loafers and stretched out in his easy chair every evening, listing to the cynics on the evening news, instead of responding to the pounding drumbeat of His Master’s call on his life? Then, he would not have changed the course of mankind by trusting God Most High. If he was shuffling, all cautious-like with his hours, through old newspapers instead of feeling the desires of his Spirit, then light-rays of brilliance that the Holy Spirit delivered wouldn’t have fallen off of his lips.

What is holding you back from trusting your Creator completely? You don’t really need the “steps” when your heart is moved. You just move. The Most High makes harmony out of the broken pieces and steps. You’ve already got the gusto of your so-called “strategy” in place. So, you’ve never been here before. Neither has anyone else. 

Wake up. Trust Him. Get moving. Go.
