TEAMWORK. CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE GOING IN YOUR DIRECTION.
SOME OF THE BIGGEST MISTAKES I MADE WAS BECAUSE I DID NOT KNOW THE VALUE IN CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE GOING IN MY DIRECTION.
I FIRST HAD TO LEARN WHAT DIRECTION I WAS GOING.
THEN I HAD TO TAKE ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THAT DIRECTION.
ONCE I LEARNED ME, I HAD TO FIND OTHERS GOING MY WAY.
WE MANY TIMES THINK OUR FRIENDS OR FAMILY ARE SUPPOSED TO GO IN THE SAME DIRECTION. THAT ISN'T ALWAYS THE CASE AND MANY TIMES IT ISN'T THE CASE. IT DOESN'T MAKE THEM BAD OR YOU BAD, IT JUST IS. FIND THE VALUE IN BEING INDEPENDENT AND UNIQUE. DON'T JUST BE LIKE THEM BECAUSE THEY MAY NOT KNOW WHERE THEY ARE GOING EITHER.
LEARN WHO TO BE CONNECTED TO. IF YOU NEED HEALING, FIND OTHERS THAT CAN HELP HEAL YOU. IF YOU NEED MINISTRY, FIND OTHERS WITH COMMON GOALS IN MINISTRY. IF YOU NEED TO GROW, FIND OTHERS THAT ARE GROWING. THE MISTAKES WE MAKE SO OFTEN ARE BECAUSE WE SETTLE IN THE THINKING THAT THERE ISN'T ANY MORE OR THAT WE HAVE TO STAY SOMEWHERE THAT ISN'T A GOOD FIT FOR US.
SEARCH OUT GOD AND HE WILL REVEAL WHAT YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR. GET UP AND GET MOVING TODAY.
Believe in yourself
Believe in yourself, as only you can do
Don't watch or wait for others, before YOU become true
Don't hesitate any longer or play games with those in your life
but do what is necessary to get rid of the strife
Let go of the old and watch Christ do His thing
And believe in the days, that the new you will bring
Focus on the strength that God gives to us all
The strength deep inside us, that causes our blindness to just fall
So believe and don't doubt that our existence is for real
That we each have a plan and blueprint to not only feel
But to live and to breathe and to bless others as we travel
To and from work and to bless those we think may unravel
We each have to search our own hearts for the plans
Of the One True God who made us in the palm of His hands
The Creator created our beauty to be made known
To be placed on a lamp stand and for our light to be shone
If we don't believe in our own true calling
How do we expect to bless others or for God to keep us from falling
We have to know what we are made to do
We must ask God for the strength to follow through
So start today and believe in yourself
And wipe off the dust and the guilt of your shelf
The shelf you have placed your dreams upon
and look up and realize that our Creator is at dawn
the dawn of the new day we have been waiting on is here
so reach out and touch Him and don't ever fear
Believe in the YOU God made YOU to be
And watch the many miracles that come from your tree
The power of forgiveness frees our minds
It delivers our hearts from the burdens that bind
It takes our lives to whole new level of hope
It delivers our souls of those words that could only choke
It choked our being for years of our life
We struggled with ourselves, left to live in much strife
My God He saved me, and took me into His arms
He taught me a love story and showed me how to disarm
He showed me the power of forgiveness in my life
He taught me a new love, one that took away that strife
Forgiveness isn't easy, as it always seems so unfair
It seems that we are allowing, that untruth to remain there
The one that almost destroyed us and practically took away our life
But without that forgiveness, we will remain with our strife
So choose today to forgive in your heart
Turn to Jesus and realize He is the only One who won't depart
So many others will walk in and out of your life
Many will hurt you and others will cause you only strife
But don't ever forget the love that Christ brings
He will turn it around and will recover your things
Through thick and thin He will always be there
So start today and begin with a prayer!
