“And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” Luke 11:9-10

The agony of persistence is having to endure every trial and road bump life has to offer. Yet, the reward is far greater than all that was needed to be experienced.  I don’t believe in Karma, but I do believe in destiny. God has a purpose for all of us that live on this planet… be that your purpose is at work, in school, at church, on the mission field, at home raising your tribe, or being that one-on-one evangelist while sweeping the floors of an office space… it doesn’t matter where, but there is a purpose for that.

Many times, because we go through our road bumps, we get hurt.  Today I tell you, just because your hurt it does not mean your broken.  Look at the small bluebird egg above.  Bluebird eggs are beautiful {and can be mistaken for an Easter Egg… I speak from experience… LOL!}.  When it reached all it’s glory, it cracked.  Yet, there was something inside called PERSEVERANCE that broke out.  Hence creating another side of beauty.  Don’t allow fear to paralyze your decisions of today for the reward that can capture you tomorrow.  This past weekend my love preached on “New Levels”.  Something he said resonated through me like a timber… “Today’s brokenness is directly connected to your next level”.  Although today’s beauty is perfect, don’t be scared when the walls start cracking… it’s just room for further growth.  Joyce Meyer once spoke on the truth behind fear.  She stated, “Fear does not mean you are a coward.  It only means that you need to be willing to feel the fear and do what you need to do anyway.”

Today I challenge you to push through your beautiful walls of comfort and complacency.  There is something in your heart that you would love to do… just walk out and do it.  It’s one day, one baby step at a time.  Not everything has to be text-book perfect to get started.  Remember, persistence captivates His {God’s} attention… God has always done His will in imperfect people.

What’s your dream?
