The last post I wrote (June 6,2018) was titled; "I Have Faith, Why Am I Stuck?" That sounds like a very credible post, doesn't it? "...Why Am I Stuck?". Then I'm 559 days to my next post. Credible? Really?? Not so much, it seems. It looks like I should be the very definitition of stuck. Heck, I could probably write a book on being stuck.
The best question to ask then, is why was I stuck? Why did it take me so long to get into the groove and write again? The reason is...I simply lost my "why". Some may then ask, "you lost your why?" What in the heck does that mean?
Simply, I lost track of my reason for moving forward. I lost my motivator. You see, what happened was that I was doing that thing, then I was doing that thing. Then I'd jump over to another task. Then I jumped over and started building a course on "Hearing God's Voice". I'm still working on that by the way. Then I jumped over and worked on that book. Then I thought of another book.
I was doing all these things. But, I they were just things I was doing. They were tasks I felt I needed to do. But, why was I doing them? I kept on doing them and thought of why I was. But, I didn't have a definite "why" that was driving me..pushing me.
"Well, you're doing those things for the Lord, aren't you?", I'd ask myself. I wasn't even sure if I was. People had told me those were good things. But, I kept wondering, "has God actually called me to those things?"
Then I went back over my whole life story from childhood until now. I rediscovered those things and situations that made me feel alive and also those things and situations that drained me. God had given me signposts all along that had been leading me to what I was to be doing now.
God had been given me signposts all along, but somehow, I'd missed some of them. The biggest signpost had to do with my own life. My life career wise, over the last 4 or 5 years has been a transition. If it wasn't for my stubborness, it would have been a shorter period of time.
When I was laid off from my position in the corporate world, I went through a struggle, both professionally and with my identity. I'd discovered others were going through the same thing. Most Christians, probably at least in the 80% range, have no clue what God has called them to. This is much the same struggle I had had.
So, my "why" was to help others to manage their transitions, discover their gifts and callings and manage their mindsets and live in their identity in order to go into what I call eight spheres of influence and fulfill the destiny God has for them in their spheres. A deeper explanation of this is for a deeper time and place. But that is my "why". That is what I'm about. It'll take over fear and get into to faith.
