We Finally See Eye To Eye

Sometimes we find ourselves living a life that it seems that we didn’t agree to live. Even after we have done all the work of visualization, writing our goals, making our plans…it still seems like we are stuck.

I look at my life and sometimes and I think why am I not becoming that me that I envision. Did I miss something? The answer is yes! I am living like the me that I am and not the me that I want to be.

I would guess that many of us do this. We can envision that future self but never can make it to that future self. That is because we are neglecting two very important spiritual laws.

The spiritual law of alignment and agreement.

To align yourself with something is to put yourself into a position of agreement. In order to agree with anything we have to acknowledge that it exists. One of the reasons that many of us do not make it to that future self is because we have no faith in them. We don’t truly believe that they exist. As long as we hold onto that belief then they never will.

Once you acknowledge their existence then you have to agree to live as they do. So, I have decided to align and agree with my future self in some key areas of my life. I suggest you do the same and see how your life begins to change!

So here is an example:

  1. My future self always begins her day with movement of her body. She knows that movement of our bodies positions us to begin the day with high vibrational frequency. I will do the same.
  2. My future self always engages in spiritual practices with joy. She prays, worships, meditates on the word and keeps herself in the presence of God. I will do the same.
  3. My future self does not eat mindlessly. She does not indulge in eating plenty of sweets and processed food. She eats healthy to keep her body clean and strong. I will do the same.
  4. My future self has a self-development plan. She studies a new subject weekly. She reads one book a monthly, and she attends a conference yearly. I will do the same
  5. My future self lives by the spiritual laws and incorporates them into her daily life. I will do the same.
  6. My future self knows that greatness is living out your purpose. It is living in joy, having a vision and doing what is necessary to make it to that vision. I will do the same.

I challenge you to really become your future self and you can do it 5 steps.

First, acknowledge them: They exist because you exist. Once you begin to realize that the you that you want to become is just waiting to live in the present and not just the future it will change your entire point of view. Once they become real to you then your future becomes your reality.

Second, talk with them: Converse with them. Let them tell you why they do the things they do. Let them tell you how they got started. Let them tell you how they think. Let them tell you that it is possible!

Third, watch them: Don’t just envision them. Envision them in action. Take note of their routine. How do they live from day to day.

Fourth, align with them: Now that you understand what they are doing you can start to position yourself to agree with them. To agree with their routines, their lifestyles, their way of thinking.

Fifth, agree to live as they do: Finally put into action. Do as they do everyday. Mimic their behavior and soon your present self will be the person that you have envisioned and want to be.

I know this can seem so abstract, intangible, and maybe even a little crazy but just give it try I promise it works!!!

Quotes: In order to agree with anything, we have to acknowledge that it exists.

You Chose Me To Be Yours.

So I haven’t blogged in about two weeks or more and I really could not put it together in my head. Why was it that I could not get a blog out of me to save my life? I would literally sit down at the computer and…nothing.

I eventually just gave up and wrote it off as writer’s block and impossible wall to knock down. But just how God works I had a conversation with a friend and I was reminded of the law of the call. When God calls you into his will and gives you your job it angers him when we decide that whatever we are going through is enough to make us quit. That my situation is more important than my duty to him.

I realized that I was locked in the fog, mist, and debris of the explosion of life. Well guess what…life explodes, implodes, quakes, and breaks but what does that have to do with us that have been chosen.

Matthew 22:14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.” In an instance this verse made sense to me. I remember pondering this verse and just not really understanding it. God calls many of us but then he tests us, and test us, and test us some more. He is seeing who is going take on the incredible cost of the call and who is going to tap out.

I made the decision…yes the power and the law of choice in full affect!!! I choose not to tap out! I choose to follow the high call! I choose to believe in my God and therefore I will not faint!!!

There is nothing more powerful than the understanding of our God. It takes growth in him constantly building your relationship with him to really become that person…that being that has a light to shine even when our light feels so dim.

He chooses us shine. He chooses us to be great. He chooses us to lead, to teach, to minister, to write, to sing, to love the most unlovable…when did he ever say that it would be easy. When did he ever say that it is ok to just give up?

Let’s really get real here. There is a cost maybe I can explain it this way:

It takes courage to be obedient to God. It takes courage to live by his will and not by your wants, but for those that live by their wants and not God’s will; know that they will never understand your position. They will never understand the courage it takes not to compromise the truth of God even when the closest people to you do not understand and will have harsh opinions of who you are and what you do. They will never understand the courage it takes to love them anyway. The courage it takes to pray that they will see God and be transformed by him. The courage it takes to give God’s truth to those that reject you. The courage to keep going when everything in you is screaming give up. You must make a choice. The choice to keep going no matter the cost.

There was a time when I fought valiantly to hold on to every person, place, and thing in my life. With white knuckle grip and blood surging veins my hands blistered from the determination that I was not going to let go. There is a misunderstanding that walking a desolate path is easy for the one making the journey and only difficult for those that are left behind. There is an absence of understanding of how the heart hungers to take them with us and breaks once it realizes that it cannot. There is an ignorance to how heavy your steps become when you want to drag your feet waiting for loved ones to catch up only to realize that you have far surpassed them. There is a loneliness to greatness that can be unbearable if it is not understood by the one daring to be great…

This is an excerpt from my book “God’s Burden Your Heart: The Journey of the Called”

I wrote this at a time in my life where once again the cost of the chosen was just to heavy… or so I thought. But you (we) were not chosen by accident. We have been tested, tried, thrown in fire and we have come out gold!

We will not shatter. We will not break. We will rise to the challenge because we have proven time and time again that we not only can but we must. So…I sat down at my computer. I let go and let God pour out onto my keyboard. I could hear him saying Yesssss it is about time!!! It is not about you!! Or how you feel. He never said follow me only when you feel like it. He never said minister to my people only when you are in the best of moods.

You can impart faith even when yours wavers!!! You can help mend a broken heart even as yours is breaking. You can give love to others even when no one has given love to you. You can be great company for the lonely even when you feel so utterly alone. You can convey hope even when you are hopeless. You can inspire even when your inspiration fails you. The point of all is that you can!!!

Until now I really didn’t understand that. We are not perfect and we are not always going to be in perfect sync with God. Our lives will not always make sense to us and Yes we will even feel like giving up. Like sleeping for days on end and just not engaging the world and that may be fine for some…but as the chosen we do not have the right to linger in our brokenness.

Because we have chosen to be who we are called to be…and yes we can!!!
