The Journey of Preparation into Singleness, Marriage & Intimacy With God
Day 240: BE DON’T DO
I woke up this morning ready to hit the ground running. Fully packed day scheduled with projects, assignments and goals. However God interrupted it all. At the moments I began to mentally go over my check list God said stop and “Be”.
Today’s Lesson: Learn to be instead of doing.
On this journey of preparation into singleness, marriage and intimacy with God we can be consumed with the grind mindset. Getting the work done to get to were we want and desire to be. But God gave me an alternative route with the same goal in mind.
To “Be” is to become that in which we are aspiring. For example “ Be a writer” instead of doing writing projects. With the later there is a peace and an ease, while with the doing is a sense of anxiousness and pushing.
Be successful instead of doing successful
Be great instead of doing great
Be powerful instead of doing powerful
Be wealthy instead of doing wealthy
Be the flow instead of doing the flow
Be happy instead of doing happy
Be healthy instead of doing healthy
Be you instead of doing yourself
I know this concept may seem foreign to a generation that has made much strides in doing, however the actions of performing a task does not change. Being is not you just sitting idle while life moves on around you. No to “be'' is a mindset of peace, confidence, wisdom, a sense of knowing that all is well and will be accomplished at the divine time and in the divine way. It is a place of less resistance, all with the absence of anxiousness and or doubt.
So until tomorrow #justbe.
With Beautiful Love
