Written Thoughts

“And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. (Habukkuk 2:2 KJV)

When I was a freshman in high school I was required to complete a “life plan” assignment.  You know the one when you outline the next 20 plus years of your life as you see it.  The reality is that I was merely a child when I completed that assignment so it is easy to admit (now) that I really didn’t have a clue regarding where I was going or how I would get there.  Upon completion of my undergraduate degree, I was introduced to the aforementioned Bible verse by multiple people.  Using context clues I was able to determine what the passage meant but actually applying it to my life really became relevant within the last few weeks.

Taking charge as the Marketing Director for this ministry, I had no other choice but to live, breathe, and worship every syllable of the verse.  I have total control of my own actions but incorporating a team, delegating tasks, and getting the job done requires me to step out of my comfort zone.  It was at that very moment that I decided to transform my thoughts, plans, and aspirations into the outline for the future of EmpowerMoments.

I tried to “wing it” for a while using the excuse that God is in total control. But ladies we must remember that we must show Him what our vision is.  It is evident that God has a master plan for our life. However, it is okay to lay your requests at His feet because as long as they are in line with His will, He will allow them to come to fruition.  The life plan I wrote over a decade ago was so complicated, detailed and self-absorbed that it turned out to be more of a road map to destruction.  However, when it came to the marketing plan for EmpowerMoments I did exactly as the scripture says… “write the vision and make it plain.”  The concepts my team and I established were minute in comparison to the capabilities that God revealed to me.  That is why it is so imperative that our written thoughts are changeable because God needs room to expand them as He sees fit!  You may be the visionary, but He is the contractor so let Him develop the blueprint.

Dear Daddy,

Thank You for helping me to create the layout for my life.  No longer will I complete life plan assignments without You being in total control.  I pray that You continue to convert my dreams into Your realities.  Keep me grounded on Your promises while making my requests known unto You.  Make the endeavors clear that I should embark on that are within Your will for my life.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Ladies, I EMPOWER you to turn those dreams into written thoughts.  Listen to what God is requiring of you and just do it!! There is no time like the present, so pull out some paper, grab a pen, and make it plain!!! Be Blessed 🙂
