It’s been awhile since we have last spoken. It’s crazy to think that people read every word that I type on a simple Thursday Morning, weird huh? Anyways.. I wanted to discuss with you all some important things that I learned yesterday. I learned that if I wanted anything, I should take it. What? You might be shaking your head in disbelief. I see you, yeah YOU! Well, I don’t really see you, but you know who you are. lol. What does she mean by take it? When I say take it, I define “take” as to possess it. If you want to have something, then possess it, gain authority and control over whatever you desire. Okay, I know what you may be thinking- this girl is INSANE!!! She is talking about taking things that we desire and that is bad. It is bad to take things that do not belong to you, to possess other’s belongings out of greed and covetous (we still use this word). If you want something because someone else has it then you should feel the stares of condemnation and guilt. When I speak of possession and gaining control over things I speak of our dreams, ambitions, goals/pursuits, and passions. We can no longer sit in the background and watch what we want for our lives be snatched away from us by others. If you want your dream, take it! If you want your desires, take it! Reclaim what is yours and live it out. There is a scripture in Matthew, chapter 11 verse 12 if I’m not mistaken, that says “The kingdom of Heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force” What does that mean? Don’t sit around and wait to ask someone if you can be successful, take your success! Don’t sit around and wait to ask if you can have happiness, take your happiness! Don’t sit around and wait to ask if you can implement your dreams, take your dreams and do something with them! If you want something for your life, take it and make things happen! God can give you all the tools that you need to have success, but you have to take them. He’s not going to force you to take the blessings He give you, if you want them -you have to take them!
I read a blogpost by James Michael Sama, I like to read his thoughts on relationships (do you?), and he wrote something profound in one of his posts. He wrote, (paraphrasing) “A man goes after what he wants– If he doesn’t go after you then he probably doesn’t want to be with you”. That stuck with me because what he said was so true: A man goes after what he wants- he doesn’t wait to ask for other’s approval or reach some sort of validation from society. He sees his future mate and he courts her – so that she can feel his love towards her. He pursues and he takes her for himself. He doesn’t ask his competition if he can have her, he takes her! In life, don’t wait for others to give you permission to live life to the fullest, take the life that you want and live it!
If you want it, take it!
