This week I had to ask myself some hard questions.
The hardest questions were —- SharRon, what’s your most sincere, highest and most powerful prayer that you can offer/ask of God about your life? And, do you trust God to do what you ask? AND, are you willing to do your part?
Hard questions, right?…..This is what I know for sure.
We need to PRAY! We may call it talking to God, communing with the SPIRIT, listening to our intuition, being guided by our moral compass, resting with nature, meditating, reflecting, listening….and the list goes on. Whatever we call it, we must do it!
And, after you pray you must take action. YOU MUST decide to take dominion over your life!
Yes, it’s easier to “go along to get along”. Doing what others want you to do may seem painless and straightforward. It’s simple, right?
It does not take much effort, energy, expertise or education to let others control your life. You can go along for the ride without any investment, information, insight or initiative.
If you abdicate responsibility for your life, you can rest; you can take a break. You won’t need to challenge assumptions, ask questions or accept responsibility. Being a puppet, parrot, pawn and a punk is so carefree, uncomplicated, and acceptable, right?
Simple maybe….but letting others orchestrate and dictate your life is also deadly, reckless, stupifying and limiting. When you do what OTHERS WANT you to do you forfeit your opportunity to be authentically YOU. You forfeit your opportunity to live a life of truth, meaning, and contribution. You forfeit your ability to live with honor, self-pride and internal peace. You forfeit your right to defy the impossible, reject stereotypes and neutralize mind-numbing, soul-depleting norms. And most of all, you forfeit the opportunity to be a vessel, a conduit and an instrument for God! You lose YOU!
Today…. I encourage you to stop what you are doing and get still. Ask yourself…what is your highest prayer for your life?
And then, DECIDE to TAKE DOMINION over devils, demons, drama, and distractions that limit your ability to BE YOU, CHOOSE YOU, LIVE AS YOU and LOVE YOU! (from soon-to-be-released Deciding to Soar 2)
Of course, be ready…you may not receive applause, accolades or acknowledgment when you decide to live YOUR own life. You may not receive help; you may only receive attacks, insults and rejection.
Why? Caged, controlled and confined people have a history of lashing out at self-liberators. People who live in lack, live by labels and live according to limitations will not take too kindly to you being a LEADER in your own life.
But DO YOU anyway. Never forget that Being YOU may have a high COST but it is always WORTH THE PRICE!
