Have you ever just checked out on what God has called you to do? Maybe you’re so excited about the next “season” in your life that you aren’t even there in your mind right now. Maybe you’re graduating next May and you have “senioritis.” Senioritis is when you’re so not in class – you’re just going through the motions. You’re so tired of being there and you’re READY to go. You’re so ready to be finished. I can relate as I felt that way my last year of college. I was so ready to move to New York and get my “purpose” started. I kept saying – I’m going to really see my “purpose” when I finally graduate! I’m going to really see what God called me to do! Sadly, I TOTALLY neglected my current season. I was already gone in my head. I had checked out and I was totally missing what God wanted me to do in TODAY.
At times, we can become so focused on our “next” step, or the “new season” or the whatever else that we ignore what God wants us to do right NOW. Guess what, today .. you have PURPOSE. Today actually matters. And, today is preparing you for where God is taking you. What I didn’t know as I “rushed” to my next season is that New York was going to be one of the hardest seasons in my LIFE. I was in such a rush to get there that I didn’t realize that the next season in my life carried it’s own sets of struggles, hardaches, tests and trials.
So, where are you at right now in your life? Are you sick and tired of this season? Maybe you’re not as on fire as you were when you first started your job. Maybe you just violate every copy-write law as you write your last paper. Maybe, you’re not as on fire and excited about your marriage because you’re bored with it. Or, maybe you’re engaged and rushing towards the aisle.
Get your emotions together and sit before the Lord. Ask Him to help you to not be lazy, complacent, bored, tired and giving up on where He has placed you. We must stop rushing from one thing to the next – thinking that wherever we are going is going to be better. The grass aint greener in your next season honey! The same you is going to be there.
God loves you like crazy,
Love you all so much!
