Wait! I’m feeling all alone.

*What do you do when it feels like no one is supporting you? simple. Go find someone to support.  You will reap what you sow…

“To be able to lead others, a man must be willing to go forward alone.” – Harry Truman

BONUS: It is really a great encouragement when we know we have the support of our peers and elders. Isn’t it? Have you found that to be true?

BUMMER: It is much more difficult when our elders and peers are distant and…or, even more so crushing, …they are disapproving and vocally unsupportive. Have you ever experienced this? ouch. tough place.

If it’s gonna be, It’s up to me

When you know you are supposed to do something DO IT. Please do not expect someone to do it for you. It is your responsibility to make sure it happens …otherwise, it won’t ….at least not thru you. Someone else will do it and you’ll be left in the dust of remorse and regret. You will see with your own eyes someone else taking your dream and vision and running with it…..that is because the vision really belongs to God. He is looking and searching for leaders!

The opinions of others should never keep you from being who you are. The opinions of others should never keep you from doing what you know you are supposed to do.

I like what motivational speaker and author Les Brown says about you, “Don’t let someone’s opinion of you become your reality.”

What an empowering and liberating thought!

You are NEVER alone!

If you feel alone you are not. You are never really alone. NEVER. You may think no one will follow you, but if you live out your passions people will follow you. This is because people are so attracted to passion. Passion attracts. Passion attracts the right people. Your passion attracts those who will follow….and btw, that is NOT supposed to be everyone. Joshua only led the nation of Israel. Joshua only leads his people…and You will only lead yours. Make your voice heard so people will hear you and follow.

Joshua had a passion for the Lord. Joshua loved the Lord. Joshua looked first for God. He pursued God’s Kingdom first.

How do I know?  simple. …so glad you asked. Joshua was successful. Joshua’s success is proof that he obeyed the commands of the LORD I have been sharing with you….the commands found in the very first verses of The Book of Joshua!

Joshua would not have been successful had he not been strong and very courageous. It took repetition to infuse this all-important message of confidence and achievement into Joshua…from more than one source…But Joshua did the deal. He didn’t just sit around and think about! He had action. He could have sat around and made a bunch of excuses about how his leader was now gone….now what? what can I do? but no! Joshua was smart enough to be able to receive the word of the Lord…to take the word in. ..to meditate on it day and night. Are you?

If you want to experience victory, success, and fulfillment you too must have the passion for the Lord. I recently explained the importance of confirmation and endorsement from man.

BUT, what if there is no man to endorse you? Are you going to sit and wait for someone to come around and make you happy, make you feel loved, make you feel inspired? As business philosopher Jim Rohn says, “What if they don’t show up?!”

“What a lovely surprise to finally discover how unlonely being alone can be.” – Ellen Burstyn

You must be like the man David and powerful and gifted leaders found the life-giving pages of the scriptures. You must speak out to yourself.

  • SELF, 
  • Wake up!
  • Get up!
  • Now! 
  • Find rest in God!
  • God will never leave you or abandon you! Yoo are NOT alone!
  • Remember all the benefits of God!
  • Remember God’s mercies!
  • Remember God’s Goodness!
  • SING of his Power, Might, and Greatness!
  • Do not remain silent!
  • Do not hide. no.no. no.
  • What’s with the sadness? Do you not the plans and future The LORD has for you?
  • Put all your hope in God. 
  • God is the one.
  • It is not by might, not by power, but the Spirit of GOOOOODDDDDDD!!”

You must make God’s words your words….like Jesus did.

When all HELL seems to break out against you, you must find that place in God where you know you are not alone. You must use the faith God has given to you. You must trust God. You cannot base your joy, happiness, and fulfillment on what you see in the circumstances around you. You’ve got to walk your journey by the empowering and life-giving faith God has so graciously given to you Do not journey by what you natural eyes see. You are of a different world. A different kingdom.There is a deeper level at work. There is an unseen realm where the angels of the Lord are warring for your goodwill.

There is a deeper level at work. There is an unseen realm where the angels of the Lord are warring for your goodwill. Do not be afraid. Be strong and very courageous.
