I have no desire to jump in the rat race, although I've sincerely tried to hang in there.
I have no desire to just simply be a voice and chat, although I've tried that too.
I look at the direction of the world, and I look at my marriage and my children, and every bone in my body is screaming protect them. Knowing full well, I will never have the ability to do so. I will never claim to know all the answers, but I will claim to know the One that does.
Will people have issues with me? Yes of course. They always do. They will always have issues with you also. It's life. I had an incredible mentor (boss) who showed me a lot...and one of the things is to get your "true north". Set your eyes like flint on something you believe in, and then never listen to the Negative Nelly's. They are all over, they include, your family, friends, and people with opinions. It's called, an opposing force, attempting to stop you from succeeding. I call Him Satan, and he tricks me often. It's why my series of books is called, "You've Been Conned". It happens daily. But when you know the Truth, the truth will set you free.
What stops us from speaking freely about Christ and His Saving Grace? What's your story?
I love to write, I love people, and I love to encourage. Guess what, that gives me purpose. What are your passions...Are you waiting for a degree to be who you were created? I wonder where John the Baptist went to college? I wonder what college Joseph attended to be ruler of the land, I wonder what scholarship David received to get into the best college in the country, I wonder if Abraham taught there?
I will become a top blogger, not because I want to be famous, although at one time, that was true. I will become a top blogger, because God's word doesn't go out void. I have determined that worldly success will make me fail quickly. It knocks me down every time I get a little ahead...and it's only discouraging if I'm looking at me. If you are looking at me to help you succeed, then I'm missing the mark there too. Don't follow me because I have the answers, I don't. Come along side me because together we will discover Truth.
Today I'm taking a new direction, sometimes you have to do that in life. It's not about excuses, although we can sure come up with a ton. Grab your passion, set a goal and succeed. The world is there to challenge you, not to bring you down. We are American's, living the American dream, and in God We Trust. It's what we do best!
