About 20years ago, our youth fellowship president who doubled as my school father asked me a question which was brought to my remembrance recently. He asked me who my role model was in ministry and without thinking twice on that particular day I said, “JOYCE MEYER”.
I love Joyce Meyer. She is an awesome woman. A teacher and she also serves in the help ministry. She has a message for women. Same with T.D. Jakes. These are the major areas I see God nudging me towards so I concentrate my efforts on being equipped to take it on.
I don’t live where they live so I do something to get impacted by them.
…. I stock my library with their books.
I read them.
I pay to gain knowledge from them.
I would rather buy books than fill my closet with clothes and shoes.
One thing that endears me to my mentees who are closest to me is that they love books. That attitude is a magnet between me and them.
You see, purposeful people never stop tilling their ground and tending their garden. They identify what’s important and focus on that. They water the ground and fertilize it with resources that will enrich it and in turn lead to a bumper harvest.
God has placed you in a garden like He did Adam so that you can till it. That garden is your place of purpose.
The law of sowing and reaping is so real. If you invest in your calling, you are bound to excel therein according to your Maker’s standards and if otherwise the obvious.
I keep going on and on about being intentional because it’s the path I have chosen for myself and I desire above many things that you will take this route too. (I did a video on the subject matter and you can watch it HERE
Life is too short to go about it unintentionally.
Take charge of your life.
Invest in things that matter.
Feed your passion.
I can tell you firsthand that only when you live your life purposefully can you have a sense of fulfillment deep within.
“Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength? Why pay for food that does you no good? Listen to me, and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the finest food.” (Isaiah 55:2)
Purpose is calling on you to give it attention instead of things that will not satisfy you which you are busy investing in.
… Felt strongly to charge you thus today.
I hope you get the message and take action in the right direction from today henceforth . . .
