Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future
Our ways are not His ways and His plans for our lives exceed anything we could ever imagine. We often have the misconception that all we must do is wait on the Lord to fulfill His promises and plans, this is not true. Faith without works is dead! If you put a seed in soil and leave the plant in the dark chances are it will not grow. Watering your seed is necessary for it to bloom, just as working and putting forth action to attain your goals.
I would like to be completely honest, I do not always speak life into my situations. As any other human, I too become consumed with the worries of the world and overwhelmed with finding solutions to problems. Surrounding myself with people who help keep me grounded and focused on the goal at hand and encourages me to “water my seed”. Avoid complacency at all cost, keep negativity to a minimum to the point its basically extinct, and THINK, SPEAK, BELIEVE AND DO!
