When “Now” Is the Only Time You Have…

Hello purpose-driven believers, dream achievers and dreaming wannabe’s, I read a post today that touched my heart. I re-blog it below.

As this dear blogger says, I believe there may be many amongst this readership who can relate to her message in some way.

• Perhaps you are afraid to follow your dream
• Perhaps you have helped others achieve their dream whilst yours languishes in the dust
• Perhaps your faith in God has been undermined in some way
• Perhaps things you had prayed for, or expected to happen, just did not materialise
• Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps!

I know for myself, I can relate to some of this blogger’s experiences.

I’ve voluntarily written for, edited and proof-read material, as well as prayed on behalf of others. They’ve gone on to achieve what they set out to do. Launched ministries. Passed exams. Published books. Produced magazine issues. Got results.

And then I realised that whilst I was helping others to achieve their dreams and fulfil their goals, my own lay dormant—visible only upon the pages of my Dream notebook, alive only in the deep recesses of my heart.

And so I had to start learning to say “no”. A difficult thing to do if you are someone like me. But then when I started saying “no” in order to get going with my own goals, and pursue my own dreams, all sorts of obstacles reared up in my pathway, the chief obstacle being myself!

Is there anyone out there who needs to let go of excuses and fear, and follow the path of faith and hope towards their destiny?

Is there anyone out there who needs to examine your life and see what is hindering you from pursuing your purpose, from accomplishing your dreams?

If so, I hope the following post will inspire you.

Eyes Straight Ahead

“Now” and “Today” and “In this moment” are times I have not historically been known for enjoying much. I am a dreamer, a planner, a person who enjoys living months out. I like to know what is coming and do not enjoy being surprised with last-minute plans or lateness. I like to be 15 minutes early to events and meetings. I hate waiting. And I am not a fan of not planning things – in fact, I plan my spontaneous time.

I realized yesterday the reason I don’t enjoy “now”, “today”, and “in this moment” is because in those times, I realize that I am not fulfilling my potential. I am sitting on talent and dreams and gifts that go unused. In fact, I have been looking for a new job for more than a year and yet I still haven’t found one because my idea of looking for a…

  1. Indeed now is the only time we have. And use it wisely we must. Sobering message but much needed. Many times we help others fulfil their dreams while ours lie dormant as you say, we even call it “ministry”. Question is, “is this God’s will for me “NOW?”

      And yes, indeed – we need to question whether we are in the centre of God’s will for our lives.
