Blocked by Your Imagination


Your imagination is a powerful tool when used properly to get what you want in life.  You are who you are because of who you thought you could become.  When was the last time you set a goal that was beyond your wildest imagination? We don’t do that very often.  If you only knew the thoughts that God has about where to take you then you would be jumping for joy.  Once I started believing in my small dreams and watching them come true, that’s when I decided to believe for bigger and more daring things.  I mean what could go wrong?  As long as you are alive you will be working towards something, so why not work towards something bigger than you can ever imagine?  You never know, God just might surprise you and make it come true.  The worst that could happen is that you get a little less than what you wanted.

The action of being able to dream will keep you motivated and moving forward. That in itself is a good thing.  When you choose to simply exist in life and not dream at all, then you cannot expect to receive more than what you see in front of you.  The Word says, “Ask and you shall receive.”  So you have no one to blame but yourself when you fail to ask.  It took me years before I learned how to go to the source for all my needs, no matter how small.  It does take work to get to this point in life, but it’s such a comfortable space to be in.  When you know that you know, you operate every day as though your challenges are there to make you a better person.  I’m not saying that you wish for challenges.  Nobody does that.  However, learning to see life through many lenses will allow you to see failure as part of your success.  Every time you fail you realize another way that it cannot be done.  The success is when you have the courage to get back up and keep trying.  Don’t be blocked by your imagination!


Failure of Success


When you look at your life and think about the many stories that you have heard, you must realize that they contributed to your success.  If so, then you owe it to the world to make this happen for someone else.  As an author, speaker, writer, entrepreneur, mother and grandmother, I find myself constantly looking for avenues where I can give back to society by sharing my stories.  We all have a story to tell.  No story is better than another, however, each story will touch people in a different way.  What may seem like a tragedy in your life, may very well turn out to be God’s way of having you experience something that will bless another.  I have found this to be true on many occasions.  Sometimes God is also working on you.
