Just Move...


Sometimes, I am at a loss when it comes to directions… does it happen to you? It always happens, especially when I need to get to Stop Center in VI (i had my issues with Jevnik too, but that's sorted.) I know where it is; it’s off Bishop Oluwole street, but I can’t for the life of me tell you what turn it is… first, second or third. I also know I can access it from Saka Tinubu after some maneuvering. If asked for directions on how to get there, I would give a blank stare.
But it’s amazing how I get into the car and drive to stop centre even without knowing my way. I just drive to the familiar street of Bishop Oluwole, a little clueless but sort of knowing. My instinct tells me to turn and I end up turning at the right street and getting there without the trouble i envisioned from home. It always works that way. I know I need what the shop offers, and the fact that I can’t get a vivid route in my head doesn’t stop me from setting out, because i don't want to settle for less.
How many times have we had dreams and ideas so big within us, that we almost burst with excitement? We know what we want, we see the end result, but getting there is a bit of a complicated issue, because we’re not sure how exactly we’re going to arrive at that place. We tell people where we’re going to, and we can’t give them a clear picture, how we intend to get there… no laid out business plan. Thus they've got that "you're crazy" look on their faces. That shouldn’t be a reason to sit at home, settle for less or forfeit your dreams. We’ve got to get into the car and just drive in the direction of our dreams, drive to the familiar street and know that we would get there… as long as we hold on to our faith in God, the Spirit of God will lead us there, He would be the instinct that gets us to turn at the right place, if we choose to listen

For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13
i.e You want to write a book someday, you’re not sure how or what it’ll be about, but you feel it deep within… Start a blog, get into the writing vehicle and drive to the familiar street of writing for your audience of 10 or 1, you’ll get the break you need just at the right time if you’re steadfast.  
Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track. Don't assume that you know it all. Run to God! Proverbs 3:5-7(the message)

Don't sit home because you don't have a clear picture of where the road to your dream lies... Remember you can't be wise in your own human quota, get into the car of determination and drive towards your dreams in faith... you'll get to your destination of resting in your purpose, because God is on the throne, and He has equipped you for the journey, even when you feel you're traveling blindly.( A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men... Proverbs 18:16) Get up and move... 
Nothing is impossible, if you can dream it, then you can get it.
"Growing into your dreams is worth more than forcing your way into it. No one looks appealing with an oversized or undersized dress. You have the desire in you, it’s your choice and responsibility to work out and shape yourselves into the garment of your passion."
It's the little steps you take that leads you to the bigger picture. Just move....

  1. So true. The saying goes that if you wait till you are 100% ready to start something, you will never start cos you can never be fully ready.

    Just take that leap...
