It’s more than a Goal...issa Level Up

So of course the song by Ciara “Level Up” is pure FIRE! Personally I love the dancing and the message. But honestly it makes me think of the verse Ephesians 3:20 “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us“.

Lately it’s been on my mind. As I’m living my best life I tend to look back at where I started. It all started with #goals. The foundation of success. The goals I set for myself such as graduating college, getting a good paying job to name a few not only happened but I got soo much more.

Some of my goals start out of the obvious reasons such as making money. I need to keep a roof over my head and pay my bills. On my way to reaching my initial goal God did something. He gave me something I needed. For instance, as I make more money not only am I able to pay my bills but I also meet others along the way that become lifelong friends. I also get to learn more about myself and maybe even add another skill-set.

Point is, there’s always more. A goal of weight loss is not about just losing 10, 20 or 50lbs. While you may reach that goal you’ll realize you get more! It could be friends, accountability, a new passion that turns into a career, all because you made the initial decision to step out of your comfort zone and set a goal that may have scared you.

This is what I believe is our faith deposit. We pray and set our intentions and give it to God. On our journey He helps us grow and achieve our goals and more all setting the foundation for the next level. It’s called Leveling Up. So while we may be scared to try something new because it’s uncomfortable we have to remember to set goals, relax, make steps to achieve them and watch God work.
