In todays world of information overload, we collapse at the forefront of making a decision. With so many decisions that are unstructured and unpredictable, the desire for more answers immobilizes our strategy making process. Thus, in todays environment, we need to be able to find not all the information but the right information. We need to be decisive in the parameters given. Will we know if it is the right way. Even if there may be five ‘right ways’ can we accomplish one. My question today is: Does the perfect fix exist? Because, if we do not have a way to getting things to work, how do we ever intend to stay motivated.
I mean, what is our motivaton if we find ourselves at the tail-end of every challenge comming against more opposition? Why do we continue another day if we see the light at the end of the tunnel never get brighter? How far would you treck in the desert after you have journeyed for years with no refreshment. How do you stick to your work until the end of the day, if your mind moment-to-moment is bombarded with fear, doubt, and remorse.
Does the perfect fix exist?
Here is the thing, the perfect fix is not a result but a process. A methodology of being your best in all that you do. Doing what you know to do best: trust in God, live for His kingdom, and being readily available for service. It takes discipline to be your best in your daily activities and being devoted to the opportunities in front of you. Overall, it is our responsibility.
Process: is where you have dominion and command. The process is where you come in and shine. The results are outside your control, the inputs as well. So many people are overburdened because they feel or assume they have failed because of external circumstances. Because you did not get hired, did not get the promotion, did not get the grade you wanted, did not make it through the relationship, does not mean you failed. As long as you put your best effort forth, that is what counts.
God called us by His excellence. You have the right to be diligent, hardworking, eager, and constantly motivated. Your time of day is precious, do not give in to a person you are not meant to be because people will judge you. If they want the best for you, they will be proud of you. With any insight at all, people are all wanting to be themselves but everyone is worried to make the first move. Live life by the way God set things to be in your life. Believe in His promises. As long as you are your best, you do your part, whether you get the job or not, wheter your relationship lasts or not, you know you are living Gods path for your life. Motivation plus determination make for a promoted Christian lifestyle. Jesus said to us: those planted in the good earth will have a harvest that will bear fruit, thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold (Matthew 4). What’s the final call? Launch a policy that your perfect fix is a ready heart for Jesus. Be diligient, full of a spirit-of-excellence, be obedient and you will watch His kingdom be moved in ways you never would of dreamed.
Do the best you can, with the resources you have. Never let yourself get taken over so easily by trying one way that did not work and forgoing all other options. We live in a day with so many options to have an impact on the world, let us not forget the world needs more leaders, community builiders, and friends. People who follow their path and stay in their lane influence others to be diligient in their life.
For the person reading who is being their best everyday, keep your focus. Align your heart with God’s will for your life all-the-more. Aim straight and eliminate any distractions. Enlarge your vision, step into your development with character and know that God is deepening roots for the things to come to life beyond your imagination. Each time you stay faithful, you are deepening your roots. When you have stayed faithful for one week or ten years, continue to stay true to your own convictions knowing that God has set your path this way for a reason. Stay diligient, stay ready in your heart for God, keep Him first, and be eager for todays fulfillment of continued persistent work and effort.
The perfect fix is right in front of you: it is now, today, in this present moment. Will you give God your best in what He gave you. Stumbling over if it is the right decision or not is not the concern. Information overload and inactivity will be a past recipe of your life. Your new ingredients to success lie in what Peter spoke about in 2 Peter concerning the fire set by faith. In believing everything we see around us is meaningful, ignite your walk knowing that God is not surprised with your current situation and the state of affairs around you. Keep your feet planted knowing Jesus Christ was already the perfect fix to your future decisions as well as your past. Each day is a day to stretch, each hour is an hour of opportunity, the perfect fix is not a formula but a connection between what we are suppose to do and what we do. Stay diligent.
2 Peter 1:5-11 5 Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge,6 and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, 7 and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. 8 For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins.10 Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; 11 for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you.
