“Settling or Joy…the Choice is Yours” by Rev Mykal J. Amaré

What do you want in your life?

The first thing that you need to do is recognize what it is you want to do with your life. The thing is, many times we know what we don’t want to do, but narrowing it down to what we really want to do with our lives can be a bit of a challenge. We have this secret desire deep within us, something that would make our hearts sing, lift us up to a great consciousness and give that great feeling of fulfillment, but we come up with these excuses like I can’t do that, I don’t have this, I don’t have that, I’m too old and on and on!

I know this because I experience these thoughts and feelings now and then. While building my/our ministry I want to add some more income to our lives. In a discussion yesterday, with a person I highly respect, the question came up…”What do you want to do?” At this juncture in my life when looking for employment I decided that I want to do something that I will enjoy, that will feed those I am working with and be a positive force in the universe. I don’t want to settle just for the money, I want a fulfilling experience.

Now is the time I take charge of the direction in my life. Here is where I relax into the Faith of God. Being still and listening to the still small voice within…the answer is there, the answers are always within me/us. We/I just need to brush away all the cobwebs that cloud our/my vision; we/I need to become crystal clear on what we/I want to do with our/my lives.

I invite you to become clear on what it is you want to do with your life. Don’t settle for something that does not feed you or make your heart sing. Life is too short to settle! What we do should be rich, fulfilling and feed All concerned. This world would be a much happier, healthier place for everyone if everyone was doing what they enjoy.

Release all the buts, what ifs and the I cants!
