Abena rejoiced as her mind wandered to what the upcoming days had in store for her. She had just been awarded a schorlarship abroad.
She couldn’t control her thoughts, she spent all her time fantasizing about her stay abroad.
She fantasized about the sites she would visit, the foods she would eat and the people she would meet abroad.
She even imagined screaming in the plane out of fear.
Abena was preoccupied with such thoughts that she forgot to buy a plane ticket, and as a result she couldn’t travel.
When your mind peeps into the future, do you behold a perfect picture? Do you marvel at it’s beauty so much that like Abena you forget the plane ticket?
Often times we get carried away by these glimpses into the future that we forget that our present actions and inactions play a role in bringing that perfect picture into reality.
Do a little exercise and cast your mind to some few years ago. Now you’re some few years younger, what perfect picture did you see when you pictured today?
Now compare the present with that perfect picture.
Congratulations if you are living that picture now. Keep on dreaming and keep on living the dream. If you’re working toward living in the picture, there would be challenges – you probably have overcome some already.
God’s grace is sufficient for you, don’t let situations and people tell you otherwise. Surrender all to God for it is He who strengthens and encourages us to do all things (Phil. 4:13).
To you who is still waiting to live in the picture, unsure of the steps that lead there. Are you scared to try? Or are you scared to fail? True failure is failure to try.
Success is trying and getting wiser from the outcome. Oh! Or maybe you are scared to succeed. You are scared of the prospect that it will all work out well.
Does the picture you see in the future marvel you enough to put you in fear?
That is a trap of the enemy.
A trap to keep you comfortable in the known and dreading the unknown greatness ahead.
Try something today.
Take a step that leads to the perfect picture you dream about. There is only one outcome available when you try – success.
