You were created for more. The world, people around you, hey, even some family may say to you to leave things as they are. But, you know, deep down inside, you were created for something more. You're stuck and you don't know what to do. You pray and heaven is silent. You seek counsel and no one seems to understand you. You're stuck in a place where you are not going back but you're not moving forward, either.

You're dreaming again. Or better yet. The truth is you've never stopped dreaming. When it comes to getting to that place where you know, "Hey, I made it!" You just don't know how to get there.

Then do something about it. Begin to research and find out how to make your situation change. What do you need to do to become unstuck, unglued, and on your way to something better?

Write down what you believe you need to do.
Research. Do you need to go back to school. Do you need to update your resume, or make one.
Connect with people that are doing the things you would like to do.

You see, I can speak this way because I'm stuck, too.
But I refuse, as God's child, to stay where I'm at. There is more. We have a purpose. As God's child we have a divine calling, a heavenly assignment that the enemy has been working overtime to get us sidetracked, confused, focused on everything else, except God's Will for you and me.

Enough is enough! Don't you agree?
No more giving in and accepting defeat because, well, we don't want to have people misreading us. "So you think you're better than other people?"
"What makes you think you're qualified to do that?"
"Oh, man, forget it! You could never do that. You can't pull it off. It's not you!"

These are all lies. You can do it. You will succeed. Get up and start thanking God for what He has already done. He's breaking the negative thoughts you've held on to as truths and foundations in your mind. He's destroying every mindset that says you're only good enough for certain jobs and ministries. God is smashing those insecurities, the fears, the voices that push you back so you don't believe you can do so much more. Praise the Lord out loud for the doors He is going to open when you send out your resume, reach out to people, pray and share your vision.

I confess, I don't have it altogether. I struggle too. But, this is why we have to take a stand and declare God is for us, He is able to make us succeed and fight this battle of discouragement through. Let's get up and go onward. You can do it. Let's work together! I'd love to hear about your journey as you begin to walk in faith to do something more with your life. I will not hold back. I will share my ups and downs in my journey. I mess up but I refuse to stay broken and down. Don't stay hidden in the shadows. You are destined for greatness. Begin to believe!
