Hello Passions

I don’t care how busy I am, when I am busying myself with things I am passionate about, it never seems like work. Dr. TC

I have recently been introduced and re-introduced to things I am passionate about. What I am discovering about passions is that they lead to purpose. Passions are things that you are drawn to and that, in many ways, come natural to you. Passions are often first manifested in your mind and in your spirit as a thought. Have you ever had some goal or dream in your mind that you can’t seem to stop thinking about? Have you ever thought on something so deeply and intensely, you can physically feel yourself having or being in that place? Passions create these imaginative experiences.

So, how does imagination relate to reality?

Scripture tells us in 2 Corinthians 10:5 (KJV), “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalted itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ…” The same scripture in the Message bible says, “We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ.” In looking at these scriptures, we see that we have power over what we choose to think, our imagination. Additionally, what we choose to think on determines what we become. God desires us to think how He thinks about us. For example, if I can imagine myself a millionaire, I will become one because my thoughts will lead me to my passions, which will lead me to my purpose and destiny. Scripture also tells us, God will not put more on us than we can bare. If I couldn’t bare being a millionaire, then God wouldn’t even give me the thought I could be one! He knows what you can handle. I read something about imagination that was so powerful…Imagination is like a software that programs our behavior, expectations and actions.

I believe this is the season to chase after your passions. This is the season to think as big as you can. This is the season to move in the direction of your imaginations.

What are you passionate about?

  • Owning your own business?
  • Being debt free?
  • Being a stay at home mom?
  • A certain career?
  • Being on tv?
  • Buying a house?
  • Being a parent?
  • Owning multiple businesses?
  • Becoming a partner?
  • Traveling?
  • Serving others?

Say hello to your passions. Whatever your passions, be intentional about thinking on those things every day. Your thoughts will pull you into the direction of your passions, giving you the power to become what you imagine to be!

Consistent GR8ness!

Being GR8 requires consistency. I have witnessed plenty of people who start off GR8 and end up ordinary. GR8 people are constantly striving to do the extraordinary. GR8 people take risks. GR8 people invest in themselves and are found frequently perfecting their craft.

GR8 people demonstrate GR8ness consistently. This means GR8 people remain GR8 even under pressure. GR8 people are resilient and have integrity. GR8 people push the limits within themselves to see just how far they can go. GR8 people answer the question, “Can I do this?” with answer, “I certainly will try!”

The GR8ness in me was inspired to ignite the GR8ness in you for a season. This pandemic has been a blessing and a curse for many. GR8 people can more easily embrace the blessing in these times by focusing on not what is…but the possibility of what can be!

Enjoy your journey being GR8,

Dr. TC

Recover Well

No matter what you are facing or what you have been through, recover well. Don’t look like what you’ve been through. God wants you to come out of the fire shining like pure gold. He wants to make your time in the fire valuable like diamonds. Recover well. When you speak more fervently about what you’ve been through than how you made it through, you continue to give your circumstances more power than your Sustainer. Talk like a winner. Walk like a winner. Dress like a winner. Recover well. Sometimes God takes you through to bring you out! Come out better. Come out stronger. Come out wiser. Recover well.

Disconnect to Connect…

God disconnected the walls of Jericho to connect the Israelites to the promise land! Dr. TC

I want to challenge you to connect more to what God is doing and saying in this season. Just like in Egypt, God sent the 10 plagues as a message for disobedience, I believe there is a message God wants to deliver through the current pandemic. Where does your obedience meter fall? In Egypt, the plagues also served as a display of miracles, signs, and wonders. I have witnessed several testimonies of the miracles of God showing up right in the midst of the pandemic for many people and even for myself. And I do believe since the pandemic is not over, God will perform more miracles, signs, and wonders for those vessels of obedience. Will it be you?

The counterintuitive fact; sometimes you have to disconnect to connect. In order to connect with God in deep, life-altering ways, sometimes you have to disconnect from those voices in your head, friends, family, negativity, fear, doubt, unbelief, and personal idols. You have to make your main focus God’s glorious wisdom and power. Meditate on who He is, meditate on how He operates, meditate on What He says in His Word. You can’t miss Him. He’s everywhere. Disconnect to connect. Don’t miss Him in this season. I believe the pandemic is a method to shift our thinking, adjust our behaviors, and test our faith. As I am sitting here beside an art project our son created of clouds and raindrops, I believe God is dropping some things like a refreshing rain on vessels of obedience. God, whatever you are dropping, fall on me Lord!
