Take Steps Towards God
Stop waiting on things to happen without your intervention. You have got to stop waiting on things to be perfect for you to get out there and make change happen. You have got to stop waiting on your life to be the way you want it to be and start making it that way actively. Some of you are going to spend your whole lives waiting for change and perfection if you never take action.
Things in my life are not perfect. In fact, right now I am pretty overwhelmed if I am being honest with myself. But I still take pride and joy in what I have right now because I remember a time when I had nothing on my plate. I remember when I felt like everything was against me and there was nothing happening for me on my horizon. So when I come to places like this where I feel overwhelmed then I know that I have got to take the steps that are necessary to handle the things that I have on my plate. I'm going on walks, I'm spending time away from technology, and getting out in nature because that is what is going to calm me down. That is what is going to help me protect my peace and help me feel less overwhelmed. But that is up to me to take action. When I get overwhelmed I don't just sit in that fear. I don't just sit in that anxiety and wait for things to settle down. I start to think. I start to take steps towards what can fix my current situation and what can help me to move forward.
Maybe your faith has been tested lately. I get it. Maybe you blame God for your circumstances and you feel like working towards something better is useless. For a lot of us, we like to take responsibility away from ourselves and just point the finger at something else. So we blame society, we blame technology, we blame God, we blame everything besides ourselves. Maybe if we would start to take some of the blame, if we would start to take some of the responsibility then that would actually empower us. Maybe that would allow us to take the steps towards God, towards a better future that we need to do instead of just sitting back and blaming. Instead of just sitting back and waiting.
You have got to start doing your part. Praying, hoping, and believing in what could be are all great first steps towards what you want, but if you really believe in what you are praying for then you will start taking the steps to do your part. It's time for you to start stepping towards what you want or what you need in life and stop waiting and blaming God for everything that isn't where you want it to be. Start taking steps towards God.
It all starts with you.
