Don’t Get It Twisted – It’s Not About You

Purpose and Praise

“One of man’s greatest flaws is believing he deserves everything he wants, and everything he has is received of his own effort.” – Janisha Jacobs

Have you ever prayed so hard for something and after not receiving it was convinced that the universe was out to get you? ‘Cause of course, blaming God was out of the question so it must have been the universe, right?

No? Okay, maybe it’s just me then.Continue reading “Don’t Get It Twisted – It’s Not About You”

How to Enjoy the Journey of Life

The Beauty’s in the Ride

In my last post I talked about taking the plunge and living in the moment, and while I’m definitely still an advocate for that, over the past week I realize that that’s so much easier to say than it is to do.

When you think about it, growing up people always tell you that life is no walk in the park; “life is hard,” they say, but nobody ever really explains to you just how hard it can be. I remember how impatient I was to grow up when I was younger, and gosh how I feel foolish now because this “adulting” thing is much harder than I expected.

Up to this point in life, nothing has prepared me for the winding roads and ups and down in the journey to figuring out and accomplishing my purpose. I realize now that the issue is not necessarily that life is hard, but that without the proper guidance or foundation it can be quite difficult to navigate. Especially if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy waiting around in traffic. As a Christian, though, I’ve learnt that the only way to combat the Topsy-turvy feelings is to trust God and enjoy the ride.

Trust me, I know it sounds cliché, but the moment you focus on the fact that you are not at the place that you want to be at in life, instead of stopping to appreciate the gifts of the present, is the moment you fail to grow. Growth requires experience and the one thing experience has taught me is that in each season there is a lesson to learn that prepares you for an even bigger test in the next season.

It’s all well and good wanting to get to the destination, but if you pass through all the red lights on the way there, you find yourself with a ticket that’s too big for you to pay on your own.

In my own struggles with stopping to “smell” the proverbial “roses” I was reminded of the story of when God told Abraham in Genesis 12:1 to leave everything he knew, everything that was familiar and comfortable and go “to the land which I [God] will show you [Abraham]”. Most of us would have thought that to be a crazy request that we probably would not follow, but Abraham trusted that God knew what he was talking about. Abraham trusted that God had his back and knew exactly where He was going, and where He wanted to take him.

So if you’ve been given a vision for purpose and destiny and it just seems like you’ve been driving 10 miles a minute and your destination still isn’t in sight, remember that it always takes a little while to get to the countryside from the city, but once you finally get there, the sights are breathtaking.

So Remember…

  • It’s okay to not have it all figured out right away!
  • It’s okay to feel stuck sometimes!

And most importantly, it’s okay to take a leap of faith, not knowing what will be at the bottom of the fall; because trust me, it’s not what at the bottom that holds the excitement, it’s the free fall just getting there.

So, come on and free fall in faith with me. I dare you.

Why I Decided to Start a Christian Blog

New Beginnings – Chapter 1

Autumn 2

Recently, I’ve been learning to make the most out of every season that life sends my way. However, there may come a time when you may just have to climb up the trees and shake those September branches to give Autumn a head start – I mean who doesn’t like to see concrete paths covered with yellow and orange leaves.

But sometimes, new seasons bring with them new trials and harder tests and change, which we like to avoid as humans because the unknown is scary. I’m realizing though that maybe staying stagnant is even scarier.

I’ve been contemplating starting a Christian blog for months and honestly I believe that purpose was calling my name, but my hearing was so impeded by the sound of my fear that I couldn’t hear it. Feelings of intense dissatisfaction and discontentment with the direction my life was taking led to my decision to make a change.

So, I guess that’s exactly what I finally did when I created the Keela’s Chronicles Blog. I climbed the maple tree and ruffled some leaves. And now I hope that I don’t fall out. I’ll admit it’s frightening throwing caution to the wind, especially when you’re passionate about the reason you want to venture out into the unknown in the first place – there is just so much more to lose.

Then there are the questions that constantly plague your mind, like…

What if I fail?

What if I’m no good at it?

What if my passion is short-lived?

Life is too short to allow yourself to be held down by  “what if’s” and “maybe’s“. There’s no time like the present. So, my encouragement to you is to do the thing. Star the blog or YouTube channel, or podcast. Open that business you’ve been thinking about for the past 5 years. Give yourself the opportunity to strive.

So, what are you waiting for? Start Climbing!!
