Easier Said

Easier said than done” is a statement that is true in most situations.

The difficulty level of what you are being called to do should never overshadow your dedication to the significance and impact you were made to have.

We were made with a purpose that was determined before we were formed in our mother’s womb. We don't have to figure it out on our own. God has a plan that He was to share and prepare us for. God did not make our purpose for our lives to be easy, but He made them so that we would have an impact. He kept us here after saving us so that we would collectively make know His will in and through our individual lives so that others could see us as a testament of His wisdom and eternal purpose (Ephesians 3:8-11).

Impact does not happen without effort. Most of the time, we are not ready for the influence we are called to have. So, it calls for learning, testing, growth, development, and experiences. Those things are not gained by osmosis, where we simply absorb them by being around. But we must get involved in the process: receiving, applying, trying, failing, struggling until what is needed is gained. It may be difficult, but we will not be the same because of it, but a more enlightened, compassionate, knowledgeable, more assertive, more aware individual. We will be individuals who not only hold potential and promise but those who have the skillset, experience, and knowledge to be dream builders and life changers. It was said not to make our lives easier but to equip and empower us to shine brighter like we were designed.

Mindful Questions

What is that not-so-easy thing God is calling you to do?

How will it wipe away some of the muck from this world so that you will shine brighter?

How will it equip you so that you can reach further?

Encouraging Scripture NIV:

Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

Philippians 4:13 “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”

Ephesians 1:11-12 In him, we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.”
