About daybydaydestiny

Destiny's Designer structured me to live in it's pursuit. My desire to know God better positions me to follow His chosen plan for my life. That plan includes serving others as they seek to discover God's plan for their lives. I live in the natural and allow God to put His anointing on my life so that I become SUPERNATURAL!

Drips

I’ve just come to a realization that I’ve had and have some drips in my life. Maybe you have them too. Let me explain.

I try to be a faucet. I let resources and  information flow freely from life. I’m also learning how to turn the faucet off. Everything needs rest at some point.

But there are some people who aren’t free flowing. They release resources one drip at a time. Some people do so in the name of self preservation, while others understand the capacity of the vessels they are pouring in to. Then there are those people who want you to keep coming back for their own selfish reasons. You can identify drips in the following manner:

They are stingy with material goods. Drips are quick to ask you for something but very limited in their response to your need.

They are teasers
Drips share information and display resources for show only.

They want to attract you.
Drips don’t really want to reciprocate relationship.  They give just enough to cause you to come back but never enough to meet the need. You will rarely complete a project or task with this type of person.

They will call you thirsty.
Drips highlight and ridicule your need while rarely releasing the resources to meet the need.

You don’t have to stick with a drip find another faucet.
Destiny is waiting!

Put It Back

Sometimes we think we know what we need and want we want but what we want is not always what we need. I went to the grocery store today. I wanted mashed potatoes but when I got there stuff just kept getting into my cart. I had wraps, fish burgers,  sweet potato cake. I needed all of it.
Slowly I looked at what was in the cart and remembered what my goal was. Everything needed to go back. What was in my cart didn’t align with my goals for weight loss and healthy eating. I put everything back. I grabbed what I needed and checked out.
When I came home I realized I had accomplished something great and learned a lesson.  Even if it’s in the cart you can put it back. I didn’t worry about what other people thought of me as I walked around the store returning items to the shelf.  I did what I needed to do. If you have stuff, people, habits or thoughts that don’t align with your goals put them back!

Think Bigger

My pastor shared this story today in his sermon. It still has me thinking
Years ago, a famous golfer was invited by the king of Saudi Arabia to play in a golf tournament. He accepted the invitation, and the king flew his private jet over to the United States to pick up the pro. They played golf for several days, and enjoyed a good time. As the golfer was getting on the plane to return to the United States, the king stopped him and said, “I want to give you a gift for coming all this way and making this time so special. Anything you want. What could I get you?”

Ever the gentleman, the golfer replied, “Oh, please; don’t get me anything. You’ve been a gracious host. I’ve had a wonderful time. I couldn’t ask for anything more.”

The king was adamant. He said, “No, I insist on giving you something so you will always remember your journey to our country.”

When the golfer realized that the king was resolute, he said, “Okay, fine. I collect golf clubs. Why don’t you give me a golf club?”

He boarded the plane, and on his flight back home, he couldn’t help wondering what kind of golf club the king might give him. He imagined that it might be a solid gold putter with his name engraved on it. Or maybe it would be a sand wedge studded with diamonds and jewels. After all, this would be a gift from the oil-rich king of Saudi Arabia.

When the golfer got home, he watched the mail and the delivery services every day, to see if his golf club had come yet. Finally, several weeks later, he received a certified letter from the king of Saudi Arabia. The U.S. professional thought that rather strange. Where’s my golf club? he wondered. He opened the envelope, and to his surprise, inside he discovered a deed to a five-hundred-acre golf course in America.

God is not limited to option A B or C. He is without limits and can give you something outside of your options. [He can and will do ]above and beyond what you ask, think or imagine. 
Ephesians 3:20 paraphrased.

Think bigger!  Destiny is waiting.

God Is On The Mountain And In The Valley

This morning during his sermon my pastor said something so simple yet profound. “The same God that created the mountain created the valley. He will be with you in both”. Wow! God created the high point and the low point.

I had such a great time this weekend building new relationships and adding memories to old ones. My passion was ignited as I led team building exercises with missionaries and world changers. I was challenged by the commitment and humility of pastors from Kenya. This was a mountain top experience for which I am truly grateful.

Around 10:30 pm on Sunday I walk in my hoise gloating over my victorious bowling game which was the perfect ending to a wonderful weekend. But it’s not over. Just blocks away from my home my cousin was murdered.  The valley came quickly.

As I stood  in my kitchen contemplating my thoughts this statement rang within me. The same God who created the mountain created the valley.   God is with me in both.

Important vs. Impactful

As I sat in a formal academic ceremony watching my colleagues process by me my desire to excel in the world, especially the world of academia began speaking. “Go for it. You belong up there”.  The melody of pomp and circumstance hums within longing for all the grandeur the song contains. But then a still small voice within me speaks calmly, “Choose to make an impact rather than be important”.

I sat back pondering this statement yet satisfied. I was where I belonged.There is a desire within us to be great. We long to be known.  We harness a goodness of God that wants to shine bright. Our responsibility is to always position ourselves for His glory to be made evident. Sitting where He seats learning of His will and purpose for our position.  You may not be recognized but His presence will be made known.

There’s A Seat For You

I entered a crowded room at a state sponsored conference.  As I entered I saw people leaving stating there aren’t any seats. I continued into the room because I wanted to be in the session.  My eyes began panning the room searching for a seat. It would be uncomfortable squeezing between  people I didn’t know, but I was looking.  A gentleman to the right of me while pointing in front of me says, “Here’s a seat right here”. Light bulb moment!

Sometimes we are looking so far in advance we miss the opportunity right in front of us. Look right where you are. There is a seat available for you.
Secondly,  there is a seat available for you.  No matter how crowded the room may be, no matter how many people have already applied,  no matter how many times you have seen others try and walk away there is a seat for you.  Find your seat and take it.

Destiny Demands A Decision Part 2

Decisions haven’t always been easy for me. They weren’t always hard either.  Growing up I was confident, communicative and out going.  I felt like I could do anything.  If there was something I didn’t want to do or was uncomfortable doing I just didn’t do it.
Time and people well more so people over time caused me to second guess myself.  My desire to be obedient and submissive to authority whittled away at my decision making process. People’s voices became very influential in my life. They held the mic and I became the amplifier steaming their messages through my life. Well I’m unplugging the sound board.

That is my decision. It’s not because someone did something to me or out of frustration, I have to unplug for me. I only want to hear two voices, the voice of God and my own.

Sometimes we can feel that we are making our own decisions but haven’t analyzed our decision making process. By all means take into consideration the effect your decision(s) will have on your spouse and/or children but also consider the effect it will have on you.
In the pursuit of destiny, happiness is not the goal. You won’t always be happy nor will you make everyone else happy.
Destiny demands tough decisions but also yields a rewarding life.
We will spend more time tomorrow identifying the decision making process.
