When you begin to perceive that the essence of God is within you, you begin to do things; you begin to feel your power; it is the fuel which fires the imagination; which lights the torch of inspiration; which gives vitality to thought; which enables you to plan fearlessly, to execute masterfully.
In this weeks webinar the proper perspectives of life again were presented to us in the section of confidence. A quote that was given resonated deeply with me. ” Respect without fear. May come from being prepared and keeping all things in proper perspective.” This all starts with properly aligning your priorities.
- Your relationship with God. Understanding that all lasting change begins within. That who you are within is who you are without.
- Family and Fellowship. Family and Friends you don’t want to be without them.
- Keeping Promises. “Once you say it, Do It.” Finish what you start.
- Business. Live an honorable business life. Under promise, over deliver.
Another series of points that resonated to my core comes from the Master Key Lesson 20.
In Him we live and move and have our being.
That you Are because He Is.
That if he is Omnipresent, He must be in you.
That if He is all in all, you must be in Him.
That He is Spirit and you are made in “His image and likeness.”
I challenge you the next time you have a dream remember these previous words. You were put here for a purpose. Fulfill that dream. Strengthen your relationship with God. Apply yourself to this given dream. Your dream was given to you because someone much Greater than any of us knew that you could complete this task.
This weeks session brought back many moments in my life that I am extremely grateful to have lived through.
The first memory was how I started each day. Each day as I would walk out of the breezeway door of my house I would immediately upon the first step Raise my hands to the sky and looking up to the bright shining stars say; “God thank You for this day, another day to live, another day of opportunity. Thank You for this amazing beauty I get to see this morning. God what is it You want me to do today? The answer was always the same, WORK and THINK, apply your self to the best of your ability. Whatever you lay your hands to do it to the best of your ability. Take ACTION!”
After doing this same ritual every day for years I had the “bright idea” to question Gods answer. So after His answer that morning I replied back; “God there has to be more you want me to do I have been doing the same things everyday for years, isn’t there something more I should do?” The answer as always, was clear and to the point. ” Jim you go do the work, I’ll take care of the rest.”
Then within a few months of doing my morning talk with God I learned how to finish my day.
I simply learned that because I had applied myself completely to every task, conversation and effort, to walk out my office door with gratitude in my heart for everything that had happened that day. Yes everything. Win, lose or draw I knew I had won that day because I had applied myself, “JUST LIKE I WAS INSTRUCTED TO DURING MY WALK AND TALK WITH GOD SEVERAL HOURS EARLIER.” And yes I thanked God all the way back to my house.
I say all this to close with these words.
Master Key Leaders, Guides, Staff members; THANK YOU for shining the light of truth. I am a different person, a better person than I was when we started twenty weeks ago. I am Grateful for all of you. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to spend 2-3 hours every Sunday with you. I am so grateful God gave me the desire to be one of the finishers. I have gained so much. And I have learned again the “Key To Greatness; GIVE MORE, Be Of Service.” Each one of you stop for a moment and feel me hugging you. Thank you for the first twenty weeks. I am ready for the next six and beyond.
In total Gratefulness,
