During the first month of the new year, I fasted to gain wisdom, clarity, and insight into what I was to do in order to allow for my 2020 to be all that I was expecting it to be.
One thing that I had realized during this time was that I had allowed outside influences to affect what I was doing and where I was going. I was becoming comfortable and stagnant. I was losing my focus and veering off of the path that I had begun. Things that I had started I couldn't finish because I was too focused on things that ultimately didn't matter. Things that were meant to throw me off task, so that I did not reach my full potential. In the last few years it has been made clear to me what my path of life is but I interfered by ignoring what I knew I was supposed to do. Often times, we don't realize it but we can become our own worst enemy and block our blessings from manifesting because we're allowing for outside influences to creep in. We have to get to a place where we hold ourselves accountable for what we've allowed and move past that thing. We can't get comfortable in that place of stagnation if we want to get to the promise that is over our lives. Sometimes we even think that we aren't doing anything wrong, when in actuality we are. We are damaging and prolonging our journey to the promise.
I came to the conclusion that I had to set things back in motion and remind myself of God's covenant. I could no longer be comfortable and stagnant because that is not why I was placed on this earth. I have to do what I'm supposed to do, so that God can do what God needs to. This new year and start of a new decade is the beginning of something fresh for me. I'm convinced that it will be one of my best years yet. I'm stepping into uncharted territory but it is a place meant for me. This last month has allowed me to see things clearly and completely and I'm overjoyed. The happiness and peace that I have are genuine. Not because I'm in a place of having things but because I'm in a place of knowing where I am going and I am seeing things beyond my current circumstances. To be in this place is a feeling like no other.
My advice to you is to stop letting outside influences rule your insides. Stop letting those things creep in and take over, ultimately putting you in a place of stagnation or a place of becoming comfortable.
Trust the path that was created for you and hold tight to the promise that you know is over your life. I too am taking this advice because I so desperately seek to get to my promised place. This is the just the beginning!
