Motivation for Perspective: Go Getter Monday

The more intentional we become with our goals, the more we begin to appreciate what we have endured to gain that clarity.

You don’t know what you need, until you’ve had what you didn’t want.

You don’t know where you need to be, until you’ve been somewhere you don’t want to be.

Think about your trials and smile at how after all of those thoughts of quitting on yourself, you survived and came out stronger, wiser and faith-equipped.

Growth is painful, but rewarding.

Speak into existence and know that what comes next, will produce great fruits.

Your intention stems from your gratefulness…activate your positivity.

What I’m Reading: What Looks Like Crazy On An Ordinary Day

I first discovered the insatiable Pearl Cleage during college. Although I’ve read this book before, it never ceases to inspire me. The book is about a woman who is positive for HIV. Her world changes, and she goes back home to visit with her sister, before heading to San Francisco to live the rest of her life….. Only she finds it won’t be so easy to leave her family and friends for good, due to the wretched conditions of the community. The following is an excerpt from the novel. It really makes me think about my prayer/meditation lifestyle. Am I waiting to pray out of danger or to remain safe?

Before we hung up, Joyce asked me if I ever prayed. I told her I had tried to start up when I got sick, but I quit because I knew I was hedging my bets. I figured if I was smart enough to know that, God must know it too, and would probably not only grant my selfish prayers, but might figure I needed to be taught a lesson for trying to bullshit him in the first place. I know once you repent, Jesus himself isn’t big on punishment, but according to all the Old Testament stories I ever heard, his father was not above it.
