The past few weeks’ obstacles have bombarded my doorstep. For my first initial post I talked about picking up what God has told you to do whether it was a blog, song, job, etc. ( Check out blog post “What are you waiting for?”) and putting it into action. Although I could have had good reasons to take a break from posting, the very words Don’t Lose Momentum resonated in me. No matter if problems arise, busy schedules, and if you are being pulled on in every area of your life don’t stop. I realized the more and more I slowed down on writing, the busier my schedule got. It’s so easy to lose that momentum, and of course, the enemy loves to see you slow down, and even better if you stop. He knows that the very thing that God has told you to do is the thing that will bring great blessings. Not only to you but in my case the people who read this blog. (2 Chronicles 15:7 but as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.”)
I think of it like being in a race. Every step God wants to direct. With every movement, he wants to guide you to the finish line. The finish line holds the completed vision. Any sacrifice or struggle that comes your way will be worth it at the finish line. (Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.)For example, God may have told you to start a business. So you start the business and it becomes very successful in the city you reside. Although the business is flourishing God doesn’t want you to stop there. His expectations and plans are greater than we can imagine. He wants to take your business and expand it all around the world. However, if we allow ourselves to lose momentum, we eventually stop. (Jeremiah 29:11For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.)
So I say this for myself and for you to keep going! Don’t get off track, push it off to the side, slow down, or waiver from the very thing that God has told you to do. Keep going! Don’t lose momentum!
