I read a message this morning from Bob Proctor where he shared a quote from Mary Morrissey:
“Don’t wait for something big to occur. Start where you are, with what you have, and that will always lead you into something greater.”
I’ve realized that I often wait for something big. I wait for a bigger reason to begin; for a bigger slot of time; for more energy, more enthusiasm, more commitment… but that waiting burns up valuable time, and then, often, I don’t have time to do what I was hoping to do in the first place.
I liked her quote because she says to start “…with what you have…” It reminded me of a class I attended where we were encouraged to write down what we had, and what resources were available for us to accomplish what we wanted to.
For me, it started out as a list of all my blessings – physical and spiritual. And then, I chose from that list the things that could help me accomplish the chosen goal, and I realized I really did have what I needed – maybe not all I WANTED, but what I really needed.
In Philippians 4:19 we read: But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
ALL our need – that is the promise.
What do you want to accomplish? Choose just one thing. And then, looking at everything available to you, answer the question:
What do I have that can help me accomplish this?
I believe we do have all we need, at least to get started, and that as we begin, we WILL be led into greater and greater things.
What can you begin today?
