Once in a while, we all get discouraged. Though, it is important to know how to cheer yourself on, there are times that one needs a cheerleader to cheer them on and let them know that they are doing great. Even though they are currently losing the fight; remind them that the battle is not lost.
A couple of months ago, I had this grand idea to write a book and I did. Writing it was one of the most fulfilling things I have ever done. It made me realize I want to write for life. By the time I was done with book one, I had book two and three racing through my mind. I was a living, breathing, mobile inspiration.
Three months down the line, I am still walking with the ideas in my head, not as excited though. Reason being: I wanted book one to be published before I start on the next ones.
Yesterday I was a bit discouraged as I discussed this with my hubby. He told me that the most important thing is, to do what God has asked me to do. So what if finding a publisher locally is difficult? So what if the technology needed to print the type of book I want is locally unavailable? I shouldn’t get derailed by the details but do what God has asked me to do.
He went on to tell me a little story about a man named Omi who is behind this song.
Here is his story borrowed from Mitchell Wigg’s Facebook page.
I was left dumbfounded. So many lessons can be drawn from it, it is like a little sermon.
1)The truth is, sometimes God asks us to do things that are ahead of our time. And, just because some people around us do not see the value in what we are doing does not negate it’s greatness.
2)Everybody needs a cheerleader! This lady deserves a round of applause. She truly believed in his dream and treated it like her own. When he had given up she still believed in Him and his dream. She didn’t ditch him because his great plan didn’t work.
I thank God for my cheerleader and pray that I too will be a ride or die cheerleader, believe in the dream and pursue it as my own.
3) There is a God. This should be number 1. He works in miraculous ways (His wonders to perform). He makes divine connections happen.
There is no situation too difficult or dead for Him. You may have given up but never give up on Him. He is able.
So here I am, thanking God for my cheerleader 🙂 , inspired that God still works in the background. Ready to write for the glory of His name.
When the books are published I’ll be sure to reference this day.
What has God asked you to do? Who can you cheer on today?
