I have discovered, as I’m certain you have, that reaching a destiny comes with some unique challenges. It almost seems that the very moment that you set one foot towards your destination the world aligns against your progress; events in your life begin to change seemingly for the worse. Friendships suddenly seem more distant and the world you’ve been accustomed appears to shrink.
The good news is that none of us are alone in having these things happen or the feelings that come with it. It’s my opinion that most things in our lives don’t change; our perception of them does. Our doubt begins to manifest and our mind highlights what once was a common situation; making it seem bigger to give us a way out of following our dreams.
It is true that some of our relationships will change as a result of following a dream to fulfill our destiny. But that’s because God is putting new people in our lives to strengthen us for the journey ahead. Some of our friends can’t handle us becoming something more than what we are now and they’ll try to hold us back to keep their world from changing.
The only true challenge of following our destiny is our ability to endure. Endurance is the key to the fulfillment of our dreams and becoming what God created us to be. There’s an old prayer that is based in Ecclesiastes 9:11 (KJV) that says: “Success goes not to the swift but to those who can endure to the end”.
Any journey worth taking is challenging. It doesn’t always take a belief in ourselves or our destiny to succeed; we all have doubts. It takes an enduring persistence that we’ll leave no stone unturned; no road untraveled and no idea left untried before we reach a decision that our dream is dead and our destiny cannot be fulfilled.
I challenge all of us to NEVER GIVE UP so that our destinies will be realized.
