Built for More!

Have you ever felt like here was more to your life than what you're experiencing right now?
I'd bet that most of you feel like there is more to life than your present moment... but just can't put your finger on the "AHA" realization that can help you overcome that moment.  Well, I do bring you good news... If you're willing to receive it... THERE IS MORE! Bigger and better, exciting and adventurous, fulfilling and passionate... That's what LIFE should be! Here is the place where most people never make the leap to that kind of life... To get better, To experience greater, there is going to be pain! Yep.... PAIN! If living out your purpose was going to be easy then everyone would be living their dreams! So we have to accept that to GROW will require some pain... Some people can't make the journey with you and you feel loss (pain) but the truth is that the pain of that loss, if used properly, will bring the wisdom and stamina you need for achieving the next level of your life. I have found that "getting my head right" is the first step.
So here are 3 steps to achieving that end:  

1. I need to understand who I am & where I stand in God's view so that I'll see myself properly.      Jeremiah 29:11.... (God's thoughts and plans for you are GOOD!)

2. Realize that Just because someone isn't riding on YOUR bus (dream) does not mean they are your enemy. Don't destroy relationships just because someone moves in a direction in which you are not moving in.  Paths intersect all the time and down the road you may be amazed at how God brings them into your life at just the right time.

3. The way I feel is not the compass that directs my choices.  Pain is not usually the choice we want to make (if you are sane) but if you want to GROW to the next level in any area of your life you've got to be willing to do the hard stuff, even when you don't want to! In other words, keep doing what is "right", even when it's not comfortable, and the "right" things will begin to happen in your life.

Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Stay on Target! Never give up and keep your eyes on the prize in front of you.....  
You were built for more!
