It seems more comfortable and easier to stay the same within your comfort zone rather than moving forward to grow. What if the seed decides to stay comfy under the ground and never gets germinated by breaking thorough it’s hard shell? Well, there won’t be any life nor growth. It is uncomfortable and uneasy for seed to break out of the shell and also for the shoot to break through the ground. It has to fight through the process persistently. Also it’s weak and soft initially as the shoots grow out of the ground to surface level. It has to face the sun and the wind but it will get tougher and stronger as it continues to push through this growing process.
I definitely felt in my mind and heart the struggles and challenges of pushing through this growing process whether it is set backs, doubts, anxieties or uncertainties.
So Og’s the Scroll III came in just perfect time. “I will persist until I succeed”. Yes, indeed, “I will toil and I will endure. I will ignore the obstacles at my feet and keep mine eyes in the goals above my head, for I know that where dry desert ends, green grass grows”. Yes, Yes, Yes, I will persist until I succeed no matter what are the obstacles and no matter what others might say or do. I am determined to push through until it is accomplished.
Hanaael 10.19 “If your thought is in harmony with the creative Principles of Nature, it is in tune with the Infinite Mind, it will form the circuit, it will not return to you void: but it is impossible for you to think thoughts that are not in tune with the infinite, and when there is no polarity, the circuit is not formed”. Hence the 7 days of Mental Diet continues on its journey and battle to keep my mind focused in tune with the Infinite within.
I can’t do it on my own power but when I am in tune with the power within me, I then am able to trust and depend on the Infinite power to manifest in and through me. Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me” This was one of the passages that I used to memorize to tell myself to trust God who is more than able to provide what I need and help me to overcome any challenges or hardships in life.
I have seen this phenomena happening around me over last few days whether it was the opportunities to bless someone with the encouraging words and smiles or abilities to overcome strong emotions of despair, disappointment and discouragement. More so it is amazing to experience the opportunities opening up and resources and people are being brought into my life toward my DMP.
It is truly a privilege and blessing to be part of this journey of discovery and growth!
