HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 

Praise God, we have crossed over into a new year, leaving the past year and any pain, hurts and regrets behind us as we endeavor to move forward into the future. When we don’t learn from past or previous mistakes, there is a strong tendency that we become repeat offenders until we successful learn the lesson that is required for our growth and spiritual well-being.  Too many times, we blame and hold others accountable for our own transgressions and faults, when we need to hold the mirror in front of ourselves and take a good look at the person in the reflection.

We need to disassociate ourselves from people, places and things that have a negative influence over our lives and character, others judge us by the company that we keep.  How can you maintain a happy, positive attitude if you are surrounded by people who murmur and complain?  Eventually they will rob you of any joy that you may feel, and you will begin to exhibit their behavior.  Everyone is not going to share your enthusiasm of starting a new life, or your visions to become successful in your own business ventures and careers, don’t expect others to validate your hopes and dreams; otherwise you will be disappointed and lose your focus and won’t accomplish your goals.  Set the standard high for what you want to do, and how you plan to do it.  Write the vision down, pray and ask God for guidance and wisdom, and then follow the direction of the Holy Spirit.   (Mark 13:11)  But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

I am grateful for the confidence my mother had in me when she was alive, years ago I went and shared with her a plan to start a Janitorial/Cleaning Business, my father questioned me on how was I going to start a business with no money or experience in what he considered a man’s occupation.  My mother quickly contradicted him by saying “she can do anything she puts her mind to do.”  To this day, whenever I go to do something that may seem impossible or difficult, I remember her words and they strengthen my determination and resolve.  I didn’t allow the words that my father spoke to influence my decision, even though it made good sense.  He didn’t have or share my vision; he thought I should be content to do the things that are assigned to women, especially when it involved doing something that is normally done by men.  Sometimes the things we desire to do, isn’t normal but that doesn’t mean you can’t accomplish it. 

Society is constantly changing, yet it is still difficult for some people to accept role changes or to envision a person doing something that they have no previous experience or educational training.  Yet we have millionaires who achieve their success by working hard and having a strong determination to succeed, they believed in themselves and didn’t allow anyone or anything to deter them from their goals.  On reality television programs, we see everyday people who have turned their lives around and made a name for themselves, singers who were once unknown have been acclaimed and received awards and recognition because they believed they had something special to offer and set out to do it.  People have left good jobs and steady employment to pursue doing something that they love, and many have become successful actors, actresses, dancers, comedians, writers, singers, politicians, motivational speakers, preachers and business entrepreneurs.

Set the standard high, hold your head up and don’t be ashamed of whom you are, or the things that you want to do in life.  (Habakkuk 2:2)  And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

(Habakkuk 2:3)  For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.  If you don’t believe in yourself, who will?  Have patience, trust in God and continue to work towards the goals that you set for yourself.  Remind yourself of what it is that you want, envision yourself doing it and set your standards high to accomplish it.  (Luke 18:27)  And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.
