Privileged to Be Empowered


We live in a world that demands our best everyday. To ensure that we embrace the spirit that makes it all possible requires focus refocus and refinement. Drive is necessary and should have direction. Drive without direction will keep you going nowhere. The advantages that come along with privilege come with a price. The price of privilege is measured by the intensity of your efforts. Effort equating to result is not a physics or math problem. There are those that will equate privilege with having all of the finest things that life has to offer. I would not disagree. Having substance is not a bad thing. Substance does not guarantee the life that was intended for you though. Perception is a key. How you see things determines your faith. When your substance is the byproduct of your efforts it defines who you are and what you are made of. When you believe it’s possible you are on the right track. Mark 11:24 “Therefore I tell you whatever you ask in prayer believe that you have received it and it will be yours.” The price of empowerment is worth the investment.

When you believe in you, achievements are the natural procession. Every plant started with a seed. Nurturing that seed guarantees it will grow. Mathew 13:8 states “Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” The next verse is, “he with ears let him hear.” You are as important as you want to be. Your efforts should be intense and true. To be convicted in what you believe and that belief is based on what’s inside you and what life has taught you, is strength attained through faith and effort. Faith without effort is not faith and effort without faith will keep you spinning your wheels. Universal law teaches just as good as it can be it can be just that bad. Intellect and freewill allows us to choose. Situations or circumstances do not define you. It’s what you choose to do about those situations and circumstances that define you. Life has offered more gifts than we realize we have. The road to realizing and acknowledging these gifts is our opportunity to forward these gifts. The more we believe the more we open ourselves to receive. The more we receive the more privileged we become by continuing to pass that gift on.

The reason the seed that fell on good soil produced more than was expected was the nurturing and attention to detail. Focus and faith dictated the situation. They are key ingredients to an empowered life. Life is not discriminatory it offers the same for all. The day you were born and day you pass. It’s what we do between these lines that will determine the effect of our privilege. Life has always offered more than we take advantage of. The opportunities to achieve are only as relevant as we choose to make them. No man, who continues to add something to the material, intellectual and moral well-being of the place in which he lives, is left long without proper reward. Enjoy and respect the privilege of empowerment.
