Stick your neck out!!!

Here it is…this message may not be for everyone…Let us open in prayer for success!

Lord God, We come before you today to ask for success in all of our ventures. Help us pull the plow of progress, and perform our duties in an honorable way. Please Lord, bless us with abundance so that We may honor you with good works by supporting each other,  communities and our families! We trust You in all things. In your name We pray,


Ok, here we go, let’s get into this. You have all the knowledge (certifications, education, work experience etc., etc.) required to succeed and be happy, however you’re living a daily ordinary path…not sad, but not feeling accomplished… Knowledge is power only if you USE IT and have faith in it! All you need is that match (inspiration) to ignite that fervent flame (perspiration)! 1st: What is your version of success? You may be exactly where you want to be, but if not, read on. 2nd: Prepare yourself mentally; it’s about to get hot! Plan aggressively! 3rd: Pray purposely and earnestly about what you truly want out of life. Have a clear vision…ready??? 4th: Put on your parachute (God’s armor) and JUMP to your greatness!!! Take a chance and GO FOR IT!!! 5th: YES…the fall will be rough, the journey will make you weary! You may take a few hits from the cliffs of the rocks on your way…HOWEVER..the struggle is what will make you!! Trust in it. 6th: TRUST AND KNOW, your parachute will open, you WILL survive and soar amongst the clouds! Success will be yours!!!! BEING ORDINARY WONT CUT IT! God made you SPECIAL! Successful people take risks, chances and trust in their parachutes (Faith). It’s not about protection in your little box, and playing it safe, and staying in your shell…Listen…respectfully…

A turtle is protected, safe in its shell, but in order to make ANY progress…HE MUST AT LEAST STICK HIS NECK OUT!! Be bold in what you want or just stay content in your “ordinary”…But one thing I CAN ABSOLUTELY PROMISE….If you don’t jump you will never have to use your parachute and if you don’t come out of your shell, YOU WILL NEVER MAKE PROGRESS!!!! 

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

Proverbs 16:3 Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.

Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

Stand up, pray up, stick your neck out, jump and go get it! Have faith in knowing He who loved you first, will guide you, inspire you, and carry you! Success is for everyone, but you must be brave in obtaining it!

End the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take…Stand Tall, Press forward and Go get it!
