i'm not mad. i'm a writer.

There are all kinds of ways you can get to your destination, but none of them are going to happen if the vehicle or means of transportation you’re relying on isn’t working properly. Today, I had to make an unpleasant visit to the mechanic to get some necessary work done on my truck. I literally cannot get around with a vehicle that’s not running effectively. To add insult to injury, the cost of getting quality work done wasn’t exactly what I had in mind to spend. There’s an old saying “You gotta pay to play!” So that’s what I did. I got my ride repaired, because I’ve got places to go and people go inspire.

Many of the challenges we face from day to day are merely life perplexities meant to help us tap into our creative nature and help us get closer to our destination. So what are you avoiding today that’s effecting your ability to go somewhere great? What hurdles and obstacles stand in the way of you getting to the next level on your journey? Don’t worry; you’re not alone. Everyone is facing something that’s not necessarily in their budget, but I believe there’s a much deeper capacity in us all that’s meant to rise up even in the face of the most troubling circumstances. Inside of you there’s a well of wisdom, insight, knowledge and strategy. You have hidden gifts and talents, and you’re not meant to crumble because your current “vehicle” is giving you a little trouble. Whatever it is that you’re relying on to get you to your desired destination, it’s not beyond repair. Get your perspective back on track and find a way to get it working again. Whether it’s your marriage, family, finances, health, business or ministry, don’t allow the current state of disrepair to get you down. Find some kind of way to get it working again. It’s possible for your vision to soar and reach your dream destiny! Don’t let the price tag or cost of anything make you feel intimidated or insecure about moving forward. Don’t let what you see make you sad and hopeless. As long as you have a little faith, you will get “it” done and get “there!”

I am here to tell you that when you make up your mind that you won’t be a victim, you won’t. When you make up your mind that you’re going to get around whether people help you or not; that’s when you’ll begin to take off. Today’s the day for you to stop avoiding what’s broken in your life. Figure out a way to get whatever needs to be repaired back in order. Whether it’s your heart, your confidence, your hope or passion; get it fixed!!! I’m so excited for you! You’re on the mend and moving closer to your next stop!

    Hi Pastor Sherry, Happy Wednesday. Thank you for the message. Really encouraging ❤️ I was reading and I could identify with you when you said that sometimes the extra expenses that are not in our budget, can change our mood. The other day, I had to make repairs in the pipes in my house, and the money that I spent, was not in my budget. I need to sacrifice others things to fixed what was broken. For a moment, it bothered me, but I realized that I need water and the pipes should work well. Instead of feeling frustrated, I just said, God will provide. There are still things to fix in the house, but to have a safe house, those repairs must be done and done soon. So, like you said, “as long I have faith” it will get it done. 👏

    We can not do anything with the past, but we can fix this present, so that our future will be different …and we “get there” ❤️ Good word.
