To my wonderful readers, thank you so much for your patience during this time of silence. It’s been a long while not blogging as I got buried in some speaking engagements, finalising some few manuscripts and my upcoming book due before Christmas.
I got inspired by this post written by my younger brother. He called it Time Zone!
I hope it speaks to you the same way it does to me.
Here we go.
Don’t go chasing after waterfalls if your calling is to stick by the stream, because waterfalls are on a rapid move and unless you’re empowered to flow into it, then stay where you’re stationed to be in that season until the signal comes for you to move into an accelerated Time Zone.
Many a time in life, we decide to go after ‘waterfalls’, i.e. things that are beyond our reach and too rapid and slippery to grasp. We invest so much time and energy chasing after a phantom, and before we realise what time it is, we are exhausted and out of gas to even chase after what we are called to do.
Everyone has their own pace to pursue. That is why some have their degrees at an early age while others go back to university at the age of thirty or even later. Some may get a job right after graduation while others wait for years before finding a satisfying career.
At times people become accomplished at a young age and may not value that season because they still think they have all the time in the world. Others get to the success of their purpose in their late 50’s and move on to change their society and impact the world! Retirement for many maybe at sixty while others are just starting their career and walking into their purpose at that same age.
Whether you realise it or not, a lot of people are working according to their specific ordained TIME-ZONE. When you look around, it might appear to you as though some people are ahead of you, and some behind. But everyone is running their race! It’s no point envying a person who is successful or trying to look down on someone who’s just starting to climb the ladder. Just focus on your track and keep running that race according to the Time Zone set for you.
Don’t run into the waterfalls when you’re meant to be at the stream and don’t jump out of the waterfalls when you’re supposed to be there. Stay where you are assigned to fulfil Purpose.
