Patience. Some say the early bird gets the worm. Others say the waited is virtuous. Well the most-important components to inheriting the promises bestowed upon our lives are our faith and patience. Our faith is solely driven by our thoughts and our patience is controlled by our actions.
Through each moment, whether you are practicing faith or patience, you have to stay reminded your mind guides your life. You have to think about what you’re thinking about. But don’t lose focus. Your greatest strength is knowing when you’re weakest. The perfect time to persevere is when you are ready to give up. Because that is the moment when Satan is at his strongest. He’s never in a hurry. He’s patient; often times more than us. All he needs is an opportunity to inject unholy, self-centered thoughts into your head. And if we don’t kick them out, they stay. And as they stay, they can steal your joy, kill your faith, and overcome your patience. Which is all a part of his destructive plan.
But you’re greater than this. You have everything in you to become the best version of you, you could possibly be. You just have to make a decision – do you want to be who you are or do you want to be who you want to be? You have to learn to remove anything, anyone, and any thought in your life that could make you less than what God created you to be. Your circles are critical in this process. You have to be strong.
Whether you think you can or you think you can’t – you’re right.
That’s such a powerful statement. Because it’s so simple but filled with pure honesty. You have to love yourself enough to get from under yourself. If you meditate in the positive about it, day and night, you will become like a productive tree and everything you touch will grow. You will be given the midas touch. Everything will become perfect in your life. In your eyes. Because your faith and patience will finally merge with your life. And not because you are perfect, or your plan is perfect, but because your God is perfect. Be faithful. Be patience. Be Midas.
