If you want to be successful, get a hold of your negative thinking and measure where you are based on where you came from. Don’t ever measure yourself against someone else’s success.
God really wants to help us, but he requires that we have a relationship with him. If you’re out here trying to make it without God, you are making life harder than it needs to be. There is a higher power, there is a God. It’s time to get in touch with God.
It’s like driving a car looking in the rear-view mirror. That just doesn’t work. If you have someone that has wronged you and you’re carrying that around… That’s like cancer, let it go. If you have something that’s bothering you, move past it. God has something better for you but you have to let everything else go.
I grew up poor but I always imagined big things. My momma would buy a travel magazine once a month just so I could see the places that we couldn’t travel to. I thank God that my mother planted that seed. When I first started out in this business, I wanted to make sure that I could take care of my parents. I did exactly that. Everything in your imagination can come true for you. You just have to believe it!
This reminds me of the scripture, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” God will seed your imagination with something that is just for you. Ever wonder why you’ve told someone a dream and they shot it down completely? Because God gave it to you, and you only. It wasn’t meant to be shared. Protect what God puts in your imagination.
I was going to give up and walk away from this business and never look back. A lot of you know my story, I was homeless and living out of a car for three years before I got my first break. It’s really important that you hear this message, I know that a lot of you are experiencing “turn back” moments and you need to push forward. God has something for you, it’s not the time to turn back. Now is the time to keep pushing.
I told God If he let me make it in this business, I’d tell everybody about his greatness and that’s what I’m doing right now. You can change the direction in your life, you have a determining voice in how your life goes. Watch how I used the “dirt” that happens in life to fertilize my dreams. You have to have dirt on you to grow into what God has for you.
Are you asking God for the little things and forgetting to ask about the big things? If so, your prayers are too small. Here are the two scriptures that changed my life.
God still has something for you that you haven’t received. If you really want to find your calling, you’re going to have to spend some time talking to God.
Most people have moved off of “Faith Street” before their gift is delivered. You have to remain on Faith Street to receive your gift. When God boxes up your gift he doesn’t give you a delivery date that your gift will arrive. Keep your faith and remember that God doesn’t ship packages to “I Doubt it Boulevard.”
