STOP RUNNING, START HIDING (PODCAST)

I am pretty sure that you have heard the expression; ‘you can run but you can’t hide’.  Well, what if we stopped running altogether and learnt the art of hiding?  This is a question I have been asking myself lately.  Seriously, how else can I elevate what I am already doing without doing any thing new?

What if you took a gamble on you and actually decided that you are worth the risk of that further investiment in time, energy, effort, branding or even marketing?  What if you decided that you have hobbied enough and it is time to vocation for real?  Yes, I know you see it as only a hobby but what is the difference between your hobby and the other man’s vocation?  Do you see my point?

The Root and The Rock

I have an image in my head that I can’t shake off; It is the image of a taproot determined to find water. In my head, it sets out on this journey and for the first few months the only word to describe its progress is Acceleration. But that was until… It hit its first rock!

The initial reaction of the root to this rock is surprise, then there is a bit of bewilderment, trying to understand what just happened. Ultimately the root figures it out, it was just a rock so it determines to continue the journey. The root announces that this is just a snag and that growth will continue soon, but soon it realizes that the rock isn’t moving from its way and that means the root needs to find another path to water.

PURPOSE RETURN POLICY (PODCAST)

 

Have you ever wondered what it will be like to be asked by God to return what He had called you to Him not because you are not good at it but simply because you have made a success of it?  We run with Purpose like it is our birthright and it is, however, because our employer and boss doesn’t think the way we do, He can demand we return that which we are given mid way.

I have thought through this and I promise you that I know I will require an huge attitude adjustment to obey Him in that way, but I do know it is a possibility and I am hoping you will take time to consider it too and be prepared for it should it happen to you.  What adjustment do I require should this happen to me?

THE HEART OF THE MATTER

Brand new week, brand new heart, is my motto for this week. What is yours? I have always been fascinated about the heart and its influence over the behavior of people and the results they produce. My finding buttresses the fact that the seen is controlled by the unseen. So, if we want to better understand people and why they experience the things they do, we would need to check their roots- the heart.

This past Saturday, we had one of our gatherings and we took an in-depth look at the heart… how what we constantly interact with shapes the content of the heart and how it’s content shape our life experiences… It was eye opening!

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR CAPACITY DIMINISHES

Capacity: The maximum amount that something can produce.

A few years ago, I got fed up with some of the work I was doing. It seemed like we were at a place where the harder we worked, the less we produced. Taking a closer look, I realized that while we were going through the motions of doing what we should be doing, people were distracted and others just didn’t have the urge to push. If it were a volunteer system, while it would have been upsetting, it might not have been as painful as it was for me. But it wasn’t, this was a business and we were expending resources daily. As a matter of fact, expenses were at an all time high and this caused me pain. Looking at it, the only way to describe it is that I was burning my candle from both ends and something had to be done.

WILL YOU STILL GO…?

2018 feels very stale already, or is it just me?  Welcome!

For quite some time now, I have had to follow hard on this journey 80% of the time not sure where I am headed.  Most people think of me as the queen of clarity but the truth is, while I am not confused about what I should be doing nor wonder if I am doing the right thing, because I know I am, I can not claim that I know what the day will bring or why.   The difficult part is not trying to discern what direction I am meant to travel.  The difficult part is despite the fact that I know where I am headed, I am never certain what will come up on the way.  It is kind of using a GPS, you can be sure that if the GPS is not broken it will navigate you to your destination.  Occasionally, it might even tell you that there is an unusual congestion along the way and suggest an alternative route, what it cannot tell you is what might have caused the delay or congestion you are likely to face.

A SENSE OF WHOLENESS

The season we’re currently in is one of the most complex of seasons because it is filled with so many activities. On one hand, we’re gradually winding down and wrapping things up for the year and on the other hand, we revving up for the New Year. Things cannot be any more complex than that, can it? So much is going on and if you’re not careful, you’ll get swept away by the tide of activities and forget what is important to you, especially in this season.
