Thought for the week


A few months ago, my spiritual mother (Victoria Bates) shared an instruction the Lord gave her for this season in her life. It was just one word, with one syllable, that holds so much weight and power….”GO”! As I focus my mind, this one instruction is being echoed in my spirit and I can’t help but be ignited! Just GO! Go forward, not back. Just GO! Don’t stay stuck in the same place, doing the same thing. Just GO! Uproot the old roots and experience His freshness and newness. Just GO! Get up from stagnation, Get up from being unproductive, Get up from stunted growth, Get up from I would have, could have, should have, if only I had. Just GO! Towards the vision He gave you. Just GO! Towards your passion and calling. Just GO! Towards what you always hoped. Just GO! Towards what you dreamed. Just GO! Say yes, not NO and Just GO! Just GO! JUST GO!

“I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way…I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.” (‭Philippians‬ ‭3‬:‭12-14‬ MSG)
