Part of my journey…Pt. 1

I shared this on my Facebook page today and felt led to share it on the blog.

Quick read…

3 years ago I was developing and writing my blog but then I got this job and little by little pulled away from it.  When I was in Raleigh, NC on vacation last month at a ministry conference,  the Lord told me to revive the blog when I got back home.  Start in September, my birth month and write something everyday.
I was trying to figure out what, when, and how I was going to do this..  God said it, and I must be obedient but I just wasn’t sure how.  Anyway, I left it there and said to myself…God will show me.
2 days later (the day I was leaving to come home) in the hotel lobby I see a woman from the conference, and we begin talking.  She’s an author.   I tell her that there was a prophecy spoken over my life to ‘write the books.’  But I just don’t know where to start.  We talk some more and she gives me a suggestion to write everyday for 15 minutes to begin to discipline myself to write.   I mention to her what the Lord told me about my blog.  She says, your 15 minutes of writing  each day is your blog!
And just like that…God gave me instructions on how to do it.
So on September 1st I revived my blog.  It’s my life journey, my Christian walk, what God is showing, my mistakes, my failures, my successes, how I’m getting through, how we can help others and ourselves, some parenting info, some dating tips, marriage and more. In all my living, learning, searching the one thing that always came back to me was a desire to just live right.
So that’s my blog name…
Just Wanna Live Right
I always say…If you dont feel something you learn is for you, share it with someone else.  They may need it.  God may have allowed you to hear/read/learn it so you could share it with someone else.   Or you just may not need it at that time.  God is planting a seed for later, that He will bring increase to in due season.  LIKE my blog, follow me and share it.
Leave comments, converse with me.  Let me learn from you too.

Do you know where you’re going to?

(remember that song)

Let me preface todays post with…some of my writings I’m reviving/bringing back to life.  I wrote them during my journey and I still find them appropriate for today.  Some things become re-occurring themes in our life and some things come back full circle.  When this happens, I believe it is a sign that we need to be paying attention.  It reminds me of when reading the bible; you read God saying something twice.  God is repeating himself.  To me, that means…we need to be paying attention!  There is purpose for everything that God says…he doesn’t just talk to be talking.  LISTEN and be mindful of the repetition of things in your life.

So now, I wrote this back in (2014) and I still stand by it.  Again you are being reminded that you have a purpose…let’s figure out what and why we are here so we can get to work!

I feel some type of way when I hear someone say ‘I don’t know what I want’ when it comes to life or relationships or making decisions.

If you don’t know…then where are you going?

What is your direction in life?  Think about that for a moment.  Have you made any goals for yourself lately?  Have you thought about what you want your next move to be?  Have you looked at your life and saw some things you want to change?  Do you want more?  Or maybe you need to slow down?

Especially for those who have children. You have been given the responsibility to lead, nurture and raise a life, but you have no direction?  No boo, that can’t work.   But what you can do is…make a decision, especially for the well-being of your child(ren) and begin making plans.  There is no better time than NOW!

We ALL have our own individual purpose for being here on this earth. We are living on purpose…not by accident. You have something to give, something to do, something to accomplish, something to create, someone to assist. You gotta figure out what it is. Find the path to your destiny.

If you are just here, living day to day you’re not fulfilling what God has placed in you from birth. And…no one can do it but YOU!

Listen….you already know what I’m trying to do with my life, from what I’ve shared on the blog and in the About Me section.  So if you need some help getting there…post a comment, I’ll respond back to you.  Say it out loud.  God wants us to succeed in this life, but we have to do our part.  We have to seek out what we need.  Ask for help, read a book, find a mentor or friend you can confide in.  God gives direction.  He doesn’t leave you out here by yourself to fend for yourself.  Even if you don’t have anyone else in the world to rely on…you have God.

And let me tell you something about God that you probably figured didn’t apply to you…even if we make mistakes, gave up, didn’t listen to Him the 1st time or 2nd time or even the 3rd time…He’s still waiting for you to come back to Him.  If you repent (which means to truly be sorry and turn from what displeases God), ask forgiveness…God is there with open arms.

And you start again.  Just like that.  Gods love does not keep a record of your wrongs, or bring it back up to you.  Remember, He wants you to be successful in this life.  God is longsuffering towards us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

In 2014, I wrote this encouraging someone to work towards a more responsible, mature and purposeful YOU!!!

In 2019, I’m still encouraging you!  Find your purpose!  Meet your goals! Find YOU!

(Here are the lyrics to the song – chorus)

Do You Know
Where you’re going to?
Do you like the things?
That life is showing you
Where are you going to?
Do you know?

Do you get?
What you’re hoping for?
When you look behind you
There’s no open doors
What are you hoping for?
Do you know?
