What a title for a blog right? Here we are in 2017, a brand new year , new resolutions, new vision boards, new revelations concerning our next move. And it is at that moment you must change how you think. You must tame your tongue not to repeat the same defeat from past failures. It's time to take control of what happens next in order to keep moving forward.
Now What? Now is not the time to rehearse the past, but focus on what's new in your life. And if there is nothing new in your life , then create a NEW!Innovation (Apostolic) happens all the time but if we become comfortable in just sustaining, we will never experience overflow. Sustaining is good for awhile but technically it's only good for transition and not promise. Too many of us have become comfortable trying to create big in a place that's only supposed to provide temporary status, which means temporary resources and supplies, which eventually runs out. So...Now What?
Now what did I do? I made a choice to take a big risk and follow God's voice. I decided to go out deeper and create a fresh start for my family and I . I relocated at the end of December 2016 to a place which actually has plenty of open space, and the resources necessary to expand, create and build , without the crowded fight or hostility. Can God move you to a place of peace and cause your blessing to fall in your lap literally? Yes He can and He will. What many may call boring, or impossible, God says NOW WHAT?? name it, claim it, create it, build it! Talk about a fresh start, literally I'm experiencing this right now. God has given me a place I can grow and leave a great legacy.
So NOW WHAT? You have the greatest opportunity in 2017 to prosper forward or remain the same. You can choose to complain and see the same defeat from 2016 and the years' before happen all over again. Will you make an excuse that it's too late? Or will you believe you can do ALL things and you will let nothing stop you from fulfilling your dreams. What will you do differently to create the results you're looking for? Notice I said create and not produce, because if you do not change what you are doing that's not bringing increase then your production line of thought is tainted with mundane and routine. If you're worried about what people think, say and do then the same things that happened previously , you will see again. But if you are ready to embrace change you will have to get off the shorelines of familiar, safe and comfort to experience abundance and overflow. Which will require risk-taking and solid decision making!
Now What? You have the power to choose now what will be NEXT in your life. I say let your Now What be I started my own business! I say let your Now What be I finished high school, college, graduate school strong and on top! Let your Now What be I will take my health seriously and stop saying 'I'm gonna, I'm gonna! I'm gonna creates the viscous cycle of unfinished projects and repeated defeat. Let your Now What be I'm going to remain consistent by not taking on so much and learn to take on one or two things at a time. Yes I will confess , that has been me in the past, inconsistency, overwhelmed and not enough time, When I actually took on projects and assignments that were meant for 15 hands and not just two hands.
Ask yourself Now What? Will people hear you give the same old stories in 2017 you think are making a change but all it is is recycled thought from 2016, 2015, 2014....because you didn't take the time to create something new to talk about. I've put some great things on my vision boards but if I'm not willing to invest into it by reviewing it, rehearsing it, speaking it, visualizing it and giving it a body to function in with proper execution it will just be pictures and words on the wall , looking good but, lifeless.
Don't let your NOW WHAT IN 2017, become now what I should've done.....????
