Purposeful

It’s been some time now that I have not sat to type a blog. Honestly, it feels great to disconnect for sometime from certain things to really check into ones self and assure that your being purposeful. Don’t get me wrong I have my daily written journal which that could never be absent but I’m saying in the aspect of sitting and typing.

I have titled this blog “Purposeful” for that exact reason. After sometime hearing colleagues share stories and mention that not everything they share with others or in my case blog it put me in a place to think for a moment. I am extremely transparent and I am a true open book but the reality is not everyone can hear or read what I have to say.

I never thought of it in this way but now that I have had sometime to think about it…. it’s true. I have to value my time and I have to be purposeful in all I do. I want to say this is one of the many attributes of Jesus. He was there for the hungry and thirsty. He expected a response.

Have you ever thought for a moment that maybe your giving food to a people who will put it to waste. Well that’s something to think about. My heart is sadden today as of the latest news on social media regarding a young pastor from California who has committed suicide. He had been battling with depression for sometime. It’s hard to accept news like this because the first thing people seem to think is that the Pastor has it all put together. Mean while the Pastor tends to forget to be “Purposeful” in seeking help guidance and advice for his very own circumstance and issues.

I am not ashamed to say that there have been many times in which I have to disconnect from all the noise all the people to come into a place of purpose for myself first. Once I’m being purposeful in all my ways then I can be for others.

We are still human! We cry, we suffer and we are far from superheroes. One thing I have learned in the past few months is to analyze my time. Who am I investing my time into Are they listening? Are they responding? If not then I’m not being purposeful. I am sure this pastor was investing time and energy and losing himself. Sad to say this but we must learn to be more like Jesus.

Drop the seed and keep going! Don’t carry the weight of others on your shoulders. If they want it they will come after it. If they don’t well that’s not your problem. We have way to many other things to be concerned with then to sit and nurture a parasite that does not want to come out of its cocoon to fly.

This has always been a problem for me. I want to solve everyone’s problem while I’m drowning. Not any longer I have stepped out of that place of feeling like I have to be the problem solver and stepped into that place that says “The Bible Says” and I keep going. If it was heard well then to God be Glory if it was not then someone else well hear it and take it and run with it.

It’s way over due in my life to stop muddling and waisting time and purpose on what and who will not accept it and take it to become fruitful and purposeful.

With this blog I want to say to those that are on the right hand of their pastors please remind them to keep going to leave what is not responding behind in the hands of God but to remain pressing in to those who will accept and choose to walk side by side in this walk where many are called but few are chosen.

Keep your pastors covered in prayer consistently. And declare they be purposeful in all they do!

““I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.”
