Todays musings begins with Philippians 3 verse12-14 from the Passion Translation.
“I admit that I haven’t yet acquired the absolute fullness that I’m pursing, but I run with passion into his abundance so that I may reach the purpose that Jesus Christ has called me to fulfill and wants me to discover. I don’t depend on my own strength to accomplish this, however I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead. I run straight for the divine invitation of reaching the heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus.
This passage dives deep to me and speaks so much of God’s desire for your purpose and passion to be fulfilled. It speaks of compelling focus which comes when you have clarity about your dreams and visions—about your passion. And clarity attracts! Others may come on board with your vision because they see the clarity and passion in you.
Fastening your heart to the future is profound. So many of you may be stuck in your past, with subconscious memory blocking you from reaching your life’s purpose. Your “secret mind,” a term I use for subconscious memory in my book “Mirror, Mirror, What the Heck Happened?” can be the silent voice within you that continually reaffirms that you aren’t suppose to live your life with passion, because when you were young and tried to ————————— Well, you fill in the blanks.
The good news is that you can reprogram your secret mind to work in sync with your hearts desires. Use the binaural meditation on the resources page and write down some “I” statements that may not feel true to you at this time. Using these statements such as “I am significant,” or “My gifts are important to myself and others,” or “I am essential to the body of Christ and am worthy of success in my life.” “My success glorifies Jesus.” Those are a few examples but you will want to use the affirmations that are a fit for your situation.
As your heart is fastened to your future—see your future—feel it—have it before you always, and eventually your secret mind will get on board.
