THE ROAD AHEAD

He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet water. Psalm 23:2
TODAY’S CHALLENGE - is to KNOW THAT BEHIND EVERY DREAM IS A PURPOSE. The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, but in liking what one does. Joy and richness are yours to live in the ups, the downs, the fears and the fun. Live real, live honest, and you’ll live very well. Life is uncertain, and that’s what makes the wonder so wonderful. Sometimes you’ll be uncomfortable, and those are the times you’ll grow stronger. You have fears, quirks, little habits that annoy people, and a delightful, unique perspective no one can duplicate. Embrace all that, and enjoy every moment of being you.
THE ROAD AHEAD. Think of this moment as your greatest blessing. For this moment connects you to, and surrounds you with, all your many other blessings. The sights, the sounds, the textures and feelings in this moment provide endless levels of richness for you to explore and experience. The thoughts you have in this moment can carry you to any place, any time and any possibility you dare to imagine. Whatever fulfillment you seek begins in this moment. All the goodness you have known is alive with you right here and now. This moment is ripe with opportunity. It is the magical stage upon which you can act to truly make a difference. The whole of the universe in its unimaginable vastness comes together in this moment. And you are now here to focus that value, through your thoughts and actions, toward beautiful positive purpose. Here is this moment, a great gift that is now being born all around you. You know what to do. THE ROAD AHEAD.
They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights. Psalm 36:8
THE ROAD AHEAD. There is no limit to what you can imagine. And the moment you imagine anything, it begins to come to life. When you imagine, you plant a seed. The more detailed and specific your imagination becomes, the more that seed will grow. Imagine the place you would most like to be. Then imagine how you could get there. Continue to imagine, in greater and greater detail, and at some point an amazing transformation occurs. The object of your imagination crosses over into reality. This is where the writings in YOUR VISION BOOK has to start and has to keep going. When you imagine, you focus your mind on the possibilities. And your mind goes to work to make those possibilities happen. When you imagine, be sure to imagine the very best. For what you can imagine sets the stage for where you’ll go. THE ROAD AHEAD.
You have crowned the year with Your bounty, And Your paths drip with fatness. Psalm 65:11
THE ROAD AHEAD. Make time to do your dream. Make time to live the richness. Make time for what’s important by remembering how truly precious your time is. There is always enough time when you give sufficient value to your time. Complaining that there’s not enough time merely wastes more of your time. Instead of being resentful about what you must do, be appreciative of what you can do. Appreciate each moment as it comes, giving your authentic best to it. And you’ll have plenty of time to live the life you truly wish to live. THE ROAD AHEAD.
Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me. Psalm 139:10
I will feed them in a good pasture, and their grazing ground will be on the mountain heights of Israel. There they will lie down on good grazing ground and feed in rich pasture on the mountains of Israel. Ezekiel 34:14
He will also send you rain for the seed you sow in the ground, and the food that comes from the land will be rich and plentiful. In that day your cattle will graze in broad meadows. Isaiah 30:23
You visit the earth and cause it to overflow; You greatly enrich it; The stream of God is full of water; You prepare their grain, for thus You prepare the earth. Psalm 65:9
Then my people will live in a peaceful habitation, And in secure dwellings and in undisturbed resting places. Isaiah 32:18
THE ROAD AHEAD.
BUT THOSE WHO WAIT ON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR
STRENGTH; THEY SHALL MOUNT UP WITH WINGS LIKE
EAGLES, THEY SHALL RUN AND NOT BE WEARY, THEY
SHALL WALK AND NOT FAINT. Isaiah 40:31
