Be Prepared For Tomorrow

Today is preparing you for tomorrow. This is preparing you for that. Just like Kindergarten prepared you for Elementary School and High School prepared you for College. Just like the rain prepares the ground for the flowers to bloom and a good night of sleep prepares you for a restful day in the morning. …so does every moment of every day prepare you for tomorrow, for what’s next, for a future worth being in.

All the joys & victories, bumps & hiccups, falls & lessons…..they are all preparing you for what is next.

Do not be afraid of:

Every hard duty that lies in your way, that you’d rather not tread, because of the pains & struggles that will come.

Every hard road on which you cannot see the Masters shoe prints, that you’d rather not follow, because of the thorny path.

Every heavy load that you are called to carry, that you’d rather not, because of the discipline & endurance needed.

Every point of battle to which you are called where you must draw your sword, when you’d rather not stand up never mind fight.

There is power, blessing, strength & victory in all of them. And if you do not go to them and go through them, you will not know what is waiting on the other side.

And when you’re not so sure….remember……when you were in Kindergarten, you had no idea what College would be like. You just kept doing what you do, being who you be and enjoying the moments in front of you.

Prepare now. Take it on now. Invite it in now. Set things in motion now. Embrace your heart now. Live life full now.

So you CAN know about the tomorrow, the what’s next, the future worth being in.

Overwhelmed Can be Debilitating

Overwhelmed can be debilitating… BUT it doesn’t have to be.

Can you remember a time you felt overwhelmed?  Was it in college when you had more on your plate than you could handle?  or was it when you were trying to get 5 kids out the door for school before 8AM?  or maybe you had a really big team project at work and you were the only one on the team?

Whenever it was that you felt overwhelmed, the mountain in front of you must have seemed a little too big to handle.  And the longer you looked at it, the worse you felt and the harder it got… or so it seemed.  Just as a hiker getting ready to go on a mountain trek must prepare, you must prepare.  So that overwhelm doesn’t sneak in, never mind take over.  The hiker can pack an extra water bottle & shirt, some snacks, warm socks, their compass and wear they’re best hiking boots.

How can you prepare?  Make a list, ask for help, say no to a few things, pray?  Whatever it is for you… ensure you have what you need… take care of yourself, look at the little things, keep an eye on the goal and walk in Him.
