Bible gives compelling reasons why you shouldn’t put off your dreams, hopes, and aspirations.
If you need a nudge in working on your dreams, hopes, and aspirations you’ve come to the right place. It’s nearly mid year and just yesterday (December) we were talking about new years resolutions and what we planned to do in the new year. For some people that meant loosing weight, going back to school, finding a new job, volunteering, starting a business, growing your business, or doing something you really enjoy. How are you progressing? Did you start that business like you envisioned or hire more people to help your business grow?
Have you begun the necessary work to make your dreams, hopes, and aspirations come to pass? Have you started, stopped, and put them on ice? If you have, consider the following bible scripture and think on how it applies to your life.
“10 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.” Ecclesiastes 9:10
What does this mean?
If it kinda spooked you that’s okay, call it a gut check. My understanding is that when people die they’re not able to do the things they did while they were living in a physical body. No more planning to accomplish that one thing in life you kept putting off, no more knowledge or wisdom because you’re resting.
I’ve got great news, if you’re reading this post you’re alive and you possess the breath of life…pause for a moment.. inhale and exhale… isn’t that a beautiful thing?
“where you are going…”you are not dead yet, you might have had a set back or delay but its not over yet.
That means it’s time to go after your dreams, hopes, and aspirations and go after them with all your might. I’m talking about def con one, winning the Super Bowl, winning the NBA Finals, being that KD MVP you’ve always aspired to be. The passage says in simple don’t hold back, not one bit. Do what your hand finds to do with all your might. If you look in Merriam Webster, the definition of “might” states “ the power, energy, or intensity of which one is capable” . In closing Give it Everything You Have.
