As I was traveling through the beautiful countryside of Indiana I was fascinated by these beautiful wind turbines. I was curious to see what they do. A wind turbine is specifically developed to generate electricity. It is a device that converts kinetic energy into electric energy. As I watched the windmill, it continued to move in one direction. It stood tall, strong and was constantly moving. This made me reflect with things in my own life.
I recall about three years ago God began telling me about the plans he had for me. He told me to write things down and start preparing myself for what was coming. It took me a long time to really implement some of the things, that I am still trying to work out the kinks. I was so afraid of venturing out or even telling others about those things. Due to “fear of failure” or what if it didn’t play out in my life?
The output of a wind turbine depends on the size and the wind’s speed through the rotor. I had to begin to build my wind turbine and create some momentum on the things that God was telling me to do. To begin momentum one of the things God shared with me was to begin a blog, which required writing. Just that word alone makes me want to run the other way. Well as you are reading I have begun that. I can not say this is easy and sometimes I think to myself “I do not know what I am doing”. I even question if people are interested or even reading what I am writing. But I can not let those thoughts dictate and I have to continue creating that momentum.
Just like the wind turbine I have to continue to create momentum in what God has asked of me. I know God called me to counsel, uplift, and teach others. I was called to be a “Carrier of Hope”. Then God gave me the name “Carrier’s of Hope” as my business name. As you notice on the word “Carrier’s it has a ‘s on the end and that’s because, he comes alongside to lead and guide me into breathing hope in the lives of the hopeless”. So it would not be a one man business or show and that his name would be glorified through it all. The wind turbine is grounded and stands strong. I must remain grounded and stand in alignment with God and his direction. WIthout him I can not create momentum. I can make my wind turbine move.
So I ask, “How is your wind turbine doing?” Have you set goals and stopped moving for whatever reason or did you stop dreaming? Maybe you have lost the passion in your life? Have lost the excitement of what you were set out to do? I am familiar with that feeling. I was never raised with goals or dreams and never knew what passion was. I had a father who told me “I would never amount to anything.” So that’s what I believed for the majority of my life. Until God got a hold of my heart and began to show me and identify my fears and beliefs.
I want to challenge you today, to step out and move on what God has told you to do. Maybe there are some gifts and talents you have that are just sitting stagnant. Ask God to show you what he has called you to do. I dare you to test God and see where he leads you.
- Have you built your wind turbine?
- Is it time to revisit your wind turbine and give it a tune up to begin creating movement?
- Journal what God tells you, so you can revisit those promises when the wind turbine stops moving.
Join forces with me and let’s create a movement that will electrify and change the lives of others!
Carrier’s of Hope
Breathing Hope one Life at a Time!
