You have a purpose here on earth that only you can fulfill. It has never been God's plan from the beginning of time that any of us should just go through life without a purpose or plan. His plan is for us to have a life that consists of much more than merely going about our daily routine with no real goals or dreams to work towards.
"The wood fire skipped and danced about my nose but I could see no visible source. Since the muffled beep I had become aware of how still the night was. The rain had driven the wildlife deep undercover and apart from the squelch and gurgle of my stride, the gentle splatter of rain and mud and my short sharp breathes that steamed inches from my…
That's right, we play one of the biggest parts in this decision, second only to God. We need to take back what has been stolen from us and reclaim our lives and the power we gave away when we allowed others to dictate to us what we will do, what we will think, and what we will become. We can change how we walk in our lives. We do this by simply changing how we think. As easy as that sounds, it can be one of the most difficult things to learn how to do. Believe me when I say, however, "You can do it!" Not only can you do it, you will do it!
I would like to share how you can start on this new walk for your life, your destiny. If you would only believe and do what is suggested in this book and not give up or look back, you will accomplish all you have ever dreamed or desired for your life. I promise you will accomplish that which is above and beyond your wildest dreams and expectations.
Take back your life! I believe in you or I wouldn't be writing this book.
You may be asking yourself, "Why haven't I heard this before?" If you did hear it, you might not have known how to put it into action in your life. The difference is revelation. Have you ever heard the term, "revelation"? A revelation is a truth you hear that penetrates your heart, both changing your image of yourself in a specific area of life, and making that area of life easier. It sounds simple, doesn't it? I can't say that my life has been easy in all areas, but I do now possess a changed image of myself. Changing our thoughts can be the most life-changing action we take in our lives.
There was a point in my life, just after I became a Christian, when things weren't going so well for me. My family and I were learning to deal with my husband's sudden life-changing experience of going blind. I'm not trying to get preachy here but I do believe in a higher power, and for me, His name is Jesus. By this time, I had been a Christian for about five years and my husband had just accepted Jesus as his Savior. Up to that point, I had been able to be a big help and strength for him.
Suddenly, he no longer accepted what I had to say. It was as if something was taken from me and I could no longer understand what was going on. At the same time, my husband was going through a very confusing time himself. The strange thing was, I felt something physically leave me, and this was very confusing for me, as I did not understand God's ways. It was a moment of complete frustration for both of us and, needless to say, the tension in the house was high.
I demanded that God tell me what this was all about. He simply told me that my husband had to rely on Him now, and not on me, or he would not grow in the Lord. Even though I understood the necessity of this, I didn't like it, not one bit. I thought I had a right to know certain things about my life and myself, seeing that it was, after all, "my" life. I was told we could stand on the Word of God, that He held it higher than His name. So, I went so far as to throw my Bible on the floor and literally stood on it, saying, "There, I'm standing on your Word!" I was so angry with God that day.
It is my hope that this book will empower you to live the life you were meant to live, without limits. Are you ready to make the changes you want or need to make in your life? If so, let's begin our journey into What You Think, You Do, What You Do, You Become. You can do it if you believe you can!
