The Holy scriptures encourages us to weigh the cost before we venture out pursuing a task...This is not to discourage you but encourage you to make sure you are prepared for the journey. I feel the most important assessment is to know that you have what it takes to make it through any or all obstacles that may present. Please don't confuse what I'm saying with you must have everything in place in order to step out..but, you must have the innate things in place. Things such as:
- Faith, Hope,
- Trust in GOD
- Belief in yourself
- Fluidity and Adaptability
- last but not least, A PLAN, etc...
More than likely, not all pieces of the puzzles will be on hand at the time you step out..But, as you step out in Faith..things will come together...If there is a WILL there is a way. Find it!
So, how much sacrifice is it going to take to get you where you want to be? To have the life you desire? To share your life with the one you desire? To travel as you desire? At what price are you willing to pay? I believe for every sacrifice there is an equal and/or greater reward. The tears cried, the fear experienced, the long nights, the early mornings will all be worth it when you obtain the promise...
Now, go live your dream!
Luke 14: 28-30 NKJV
28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it— 29 lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, 30 saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’?
