How many of you are exactly where you want to be? Like how many of you have met every goal you’ve created and see no room for future growth?

I would venture to guess that we all have desires beyond the immediate that we see. Some of us may be downright dissatisfied with where we are in life at the present, and while I’m a big fan of blossoming where you’re planted, I’m also a supporter of not remaining rooted in your second best simply because it’s comfortable.
I’m of the belief that God has specific callings for us all, and we often miss out on His best for us because we don’t believe it can happen to us. Or we become so weighted down by discontent and despair that we remain motionless, stuck in our own mire of complacency.
Today my five year old daughter took a day trip with her daddy. She’s been anticipating it, and yesterday she asked me, “do you know why today is special?”
Of course I didn’t, but she was quick to reply, “today is special because I can spend the whole day preparing for tomorrow.”
I think sometimes we can know our Heavenly Father has great things planned for our future, but when it’s not happening now we get discouraged. Our even when we cannot see we lose hope. But I believe that God would desire for us to anticipate His gifts, to be in celebration for what He has in store. To be in preparation for His blessing. Preparation that is filled with faith and hope for our future.
How many of us do this?

2 Corinthians 5:7
For we walk by faith, not by sight.
Live today in anticipation of God’s tomorrow for you. Prepare today for the Lord’s calling He has coming for you. Be confident, encouraged, and purposeful towards your future. Seek His face, and work intently to reach His best for you. The Lord will open doors for your dreams, but you have to step out into the hall to see them.
