From Reggie Hill, M. Ed. –
Great Day, Good People! I hope that you find this message well. Also, I speak positivity into your days ahead, particularly this week. It feels great to be back writing consistently again. I still find myself in the determination process, as to the most important ideas to address. However, there is exceeding comfort in the effortlessness that comes with speaking my mind through typing… as I share what presents itself as most important for the time being.
For today’s discussion, I have chosen “Outward In Sight”. Let’s examine the “basic roots”, first:
· Outward: away from the center focus; of, on, or from the outside.
· In: committed to.
· Sight: initial seeing.
Who do you think you listen to the most, in life? If you’re younger, would it be your parents? Would Doctors top the list for Senior Citizens? When you’re at work, someone’s boss would definitely claim the worker’s ears more than anyone else, surely? For the Parents, do children hold the listening attention more? Well, honestly, neither of these assertions are accurate.
From absolute human nature, we listen to ourselves the most.
Yes, let that sink in. And, sure… we all have to abide by instructions or advising of some sort. But, ultimately the decision of how to respond or act upon such exchanges rest with our individual person. Even when the voice is silent and only you can hear it yourself, your approval or disapproval of an approach to anything is a result of your unique consultation with your unique self.
Faith tells us that there will always be a Guiding Light, to ensure that we make the best decisions. Nonetheless, that is the beauty of free will and dominion… that still allows the moves we choose to make to be a reflection of our position, intent, and courage.
I get it, some readers will argue that many decisions are made out of fear or circumstance. While I won’t argue that… regardless, a differing choice was available in the same sense. The questions become: what are we willing to gain or lose through our varying seasons of determining one thing or another?
In days to come, we will discuss the multiple scenarios which arrive when having to consider all the elements of life that influence who we are and how we react to society and human endeavor. How, through early surroundings (in Childhood), we define trust and expectation through everyday experiences. Can we break these chains? Are certain demographics of people beholden to existing generational curses? When is it possible to spark your own breakthrough, in spite of existing inconveniences?
(Focusing on Faith) Scripture insists:
· Isaiah 40:31 – But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] will gain new strength and renew their power;they will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; they will run and not become weary, they will walk and not grow tired. (AMP)
The way we are designed as a people, there will always be easily accessible answers to even our most difficult encounters. Someone knows something or another person that could be of benefit to any challenge or aspiration.
The most important aspect to consider though is desperation. How anxious are you to achieve this goal? How imperative is it that the timing fits your proposed chronological order? Consequently, who shall be impacted the most?
In this post, I merely want to remind you that all the answers you need for life are already within you. Fortunately, we are aligned with an Eternal Compass Who has our best interest at heart at all times. We have to be willing to listen to That Voice over any other convincing sounds that may show up at our doorsteps.
People say that God’s timing isn’t our timing. I believe that to be accurate, when we aren’t in step or in tune with God’s Will. In this sense, to wait is simply to trust. Once you give “that thing” over to God, let Almighty be just that. This does not mean sit idle. This means rest in the assurance of clarity through the good works of what you can do and what you can say. From these acts, you will reap the benefits of faith, beyond any level of expectation. Your life is that intentional and purposeful. Never forget it!
KEEP BEING GREAT, GOOD PEOPLE!
