Almost ten years ago I decided that I was not satisfied with the way my life was going. After going through one bad relationship after another and making one bad decision after another, I finally said to myself “enough is enough!” After deep thought of what I wanted for my life I sat down and wrote a quite long and extremely detailed list of the things I wanted. Let me say this before I go any further: wanting more out of your life does not make you less of a Christian or ungrateful for what you already have and done! If you are completely satisfied with what you have and have no desire to go any further in life, then your job is done. But as long as you are on this Earth, God wants more for you and you should want more for yourself as well.
Anyway, when I made this list, I did not realize the huge impact it would make on my life today. God tells us Himself in Habakkuk 2:2 clear as day! Habakkuk 2:2 says ‘And the Lord answered me and said, “Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by.
Mind you, when I made my list nearly a decade ago, I honestly had no idea of this verse! So, now that I am spiritually stronger and seeing this verse, I get chills just thinking about it! In fact, my hands a quivering as I write this very story!
Let me give you a couple examples of what I wrote on my list back in 2008.
One of the things I wrote on my very long list was I wanted a good, God fearing man who owned his own house, had good credit, and had a good and stable job. Shortly after writing this list and looking at it daily, I started dating the man that I am now happily married to. December 11, 2016 will mark our five year anniversary.
Another thing I wrote on this list was that I wanted a little girl. I wrote her first and middle name down and looked and read it daily. Well guess what guys! On December 16, 2015 at 7:52am, I got to finally meet and hold my little princess!! Of coarse there was an added bonus and surprise because she was born exactly one minute after her twin brother! It’s crazy, right!?!? I know!
So let me ask you something. Be honest with not only me but yourself as well. Have you thought about what you want in life? If you thought about it, have you written it down and seen it come to pass? If so, please share your story with me in the comments section. I would love to hear your story! If you have not thought about what you want in life and written it down, then I encourage you to do so. Make a list and make it as detailed as possible. I’ve said it before, if you’ve tried everything else, then why not try this. You have nothing to lose and a whole lot to gain!
