Your Life is Already Happening...


It was like a prize to be unraveled. She tore the wrap like a vehement child and smiled at the golden prize. She quickly threw the toffee into her mouth, for fear of any friend snatching it away from her. She was 21, but loved toffee like the best thing since sliced bread and butter. She then proceeded to scramble for a pen and paper in her knapsack, while at the same time reclining on the brown leather couch.

"I must not forget the details of the dream," she muttered underneath her breath. It happened so fast...the dream. She began to jot down the parts she could remember. In the dream, she was an interior decorator. She was decorating her mansion...the one that was always in her dreams. She saw two little kids running up and down the stairs. She also saw a tall man, maybe that was her husband. Good stuff, he was good looking. In the dream, she was also an architect. She smiled...she must have been stinky rich already...too hot to handle! Oh, yes...she remembered traveling first class to Zimbabwe. She was visiting an orphanage there. On arrival, she met with the owner and declared her intent to donate $1,000,000. "Oh, Lord...I was blessed in the dream..." she whispered...

But her life was already happening! She was already blessed!
.
It is good to dream, for if you have no dreams you have no vision. It is good to think, for what good is your mind if it cannot think? As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. You are all you will ever dream about. You are all your mind will ever dare to think. You are emotionally set to dream big. Your mental capacity has been given to you by a God who created you in the image of Himself. You have the MIND of Christ.

But your life is ALREADY happening. You are already BLESSED! Yes, in the little you have, you are blessed. Your life is unfolding as you are reading this blog. It is happening even at the second you stop reading and walk away from the screen. Your life is happening right now. So, the things you are involved in NOW will determine the future. Yes, you can dream big and have great visions. But DILIGENCE is the issue #1 today. The things that are in your hands right now are sufficient for the day, and they require your diligence. If you're working hard with your little visions now, God will give you bigger visions. He who is faithful in little, God will bless him with more (Luke 19:16-17).

So I dare you to live your life NOW. Your life is already happening. Be intimate with God now, not later. Give alms to the poor now, not later. Be a role-model to your friends now, not later. Help the helpless right now, not later. Start writing your book now, not later. Start writing the details of your first business now, not later. Start getting your first millions now, not later. You have the desire, start working on it right now. Start flying in the economy class to orphanage homes now, not later. Start what God spoke to you now, if it is in your power to do so. In doing so, you are sowing seeds for your future. For do not be deceived, whatever a man sows, that is what he shall reap. Some wait a million years, and the time never comes. Like Kelly Clarkson sang, in a moment like this...some people wait a lifetime. Don't wait a lifetime because your life is already happening. Sadly so, tomorrow isn't sure. The very breath of your existence should be relevant to your generation NOW, not later...
.
Let no one despise your youth...but be an example in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity (1 Timothy 4:12).

Jaycee, yes, our lives are happening right now. God that gives the vision and the dreams, ALWAYS gives the provision. If God gave us the whole vision we would definately pass out, for it will be beyond our comprehension, so he gives us in glimpses - in dreams, in visions and we have to carry this wrap it up in hope and then DO SOMETHING about it. For in the dreams He has spoken, and in our DOING and as you put it, "living our lives right now" brings forth it's manifestation and what is even more awesome is that God will help us all along the way. Proverbs 29:18 says " 18Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he" Thanks Girl, this challenged me, ministered to me and simply kicked me in the butt to get on with the things I know needs doing! :-))))
God bless u loads x

Jarrai...I love that this was an 'on time' message for you...lol...God is sooooo good! Yes, life is abt TODAY and NOW...our "todays" will lead to our "tomorrows"!

Remiiiiii...When u said "wrap it up in hope," I was thinking "sweet wrappers!" Haleluyah...there are some goodies in our dreams and visions. I love that verse, it makes me know that as His child, I MUST have a vision...I have no other choice. Yes girlie, GET ON WITH THOSE THINGS u need to get going!!!! I'm getting on the train myself...:) (thanks).

30+...couldn't have said that any more precisely...:)

LG..I reallllllly want ur iPod. R u gonna mail it to me??? I don't care...I'll disinfect it...lol.

Favoured Girl...thanks for asking abt my exams. I thank God for my results (haven't seen all the results yet). U're welcome...I'll check out ur similar post soon...I guess this is what God is trying to tell all of us in this season...

FFF...ahhhhhhh, yes! Your life is BLESSED! Haleluyah! I judt dey like DELE (lol)! The exams were good, thanks. :)

Unwritten...ha ha...I just saw ur message (u shd have seen me blushing...naughty youuuuuu). Lol.

Funms....wowwwww. God is soooo mindful of YOU. Wow. You're going to have a different and better mindset on your outlook of things from this point henceforth...

Vera...tell me abourrit it. It's because those things that are mind-boggling prevent us from seeing God...but when we decide to see God instead, those mind-boggling things fade away...(and its funny how fast they disappear, like they were never even there before).

Chika...de nada (no problemo)...(sorry I'm using u to practice my Spanish)...lol.

Aijay...haleluyahhhhhh!!!!!

Jinta...get on with it!!! *wink*

Mil...*smiles at comment*...It's the way God works, He gets us every single time (even when we're not looking for Him to get us). :)

Sting...that's great. I think ur last post also resonates that fact (The "He's just not into you" post)...I read it yesterday, but I was dumbfounded so I restrained from typing.

Freelance...de nada.
