What I’ve not been doing much of lately is earning a living or thinking about ways to earn one.
I’m not pursuing any new ideas nor am I working on any active “commercial” projects….only personal stuff at home.
And this made some of my loved ones think I’m adrift….you know, purposeless. Wasting my time.
One of them even commented that I may be depressed, lol.
But I’ve never been bored or lonely or depressed. Like ever! [Besides…I am in daily and ongoing conversations with God. Ask anyone who’s been in conversation with God and they’ll attest to the fact that He would never allow anyone to be depressed.]
So in one of my conversations with God, I asked Him if I was adrift….if I’ve lost my way, lost all the drive and ambition and the dreams and aspirations I used to have?” Obviously I had to ask these questions repeatedly and wait a long time for the answer. Cause, as you can imagine, He’s very busy, what with millions others like me bombarding Him with questions.
So His answers were slow in coming. But eventually they did arrive.
And what I heard within me was Him telling me to…
- Give…time and resources to others
- Discover…new thought patterns
- Detach..from people and things
I know He didn’t quite answer the question about being adrift or the ambitions and drive…but hey, Father (God) knows best!
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”
And so I’ve tabled the questions for now. But I did go ahead and take the first step to GIVE – by setting up the non-profit www.mindshiftu.org – a company created to teach leadership, self-esteem, and mindfulness to young adults.
More to come so stay tuned..
And in the meantime…here’s a heartfelt wish for you from me……
May 2019 bring you everything you desire. And may God shower you with His choicest blessings!
