Life has a way of twisting and turning, all the while showing you that you’re destined for greatness. The twist and turns, ups and downs can sometimes hurt, sever relationships, or cause you to feel a temporary sense of loss. However, when you realize that God is always in control, you gain the strength to stand in your adversity, praying God’s blessings over those who brought you pain or sought to stand in your way.
I thought of you when I read this quote from “Destiny: Step into Your Purpose” by T. D. Jakes
“When you live your own dream, you don’t have time to be a hater. You can’t even think like a hater, because all of that negative energy will just bring you down. You need all of your energy for Destiny. Don’t waste it on someone else. When you are fulfilled in pursuit of Destiny, you’re good and you want everyone else to be good with themselves, too.”
Know that every second is a gift. You alone get to choose how you use your time and energy. My Pastor said it best, “I’ve never seen a hater doing better than me.” Rather than live in anger, pain, hurt, or unforgiveness understand and know that those who don’t support you or attempt to stand in your way may not have the capacity to see the greatness in you because they’ve lost sight of the greatness that is within them. Faith, action, and prayer are a powerful trio. Use them wisely for yourself and others. Remember dreamers, dreams without action is merely a thought. Until next time, keep one foot in front of the other.
