Good Morning Saints!
I announced the winner of the African American Angel Stationery, yesterday afternoon: Eleana! I hope she gets in touch with me, soon. Today, I want to discuss wasting time and not living up to our potential. Now, there are 2 ways you can look at this. Some of you may feel that we all need to run this race swiftly and adeptly. But, some of you may feel that we need to take our time and see what happens along the way. Now, think of all the people close to you that fit into one of these categories. Use your closest relatives, as this is where the heart is. We generally categorize people, which is not a great thing to do;-)
Without a doubt there are people that we "wish" more for, if only they would work harder and run faster. Then, there are those who are always moving and shaking-you know-getting somewhere in this old life! Which one of these people is living up to their potential? Both! The Lord has a different plan for each and every one of us and we don't and can't understand the path that has been carved. We can barely understand what we need to do, let alone the path for our loved-ones. So, the next time you think someone is "really sorry excuse for a human being" or "a role model for the rest of us" just know that their path has been carved especially for them and pray that they are walking closely with the Lord. Meanwhile, make sure you are staying on your path, which is a daily load, by itself. It's great to have concern and show concern for others, but, first and foremost, we need to keep the weeds, snakes and briar bushes swept from our own paths--then, and only then, can we even attempt to help a brother or sister pick a few weeds. Blessings Saints!
