Just do it. These three simple yet powerful words have been guiding me for the past few months. I actually wrote a blog post on my tumblr about a month ago on how I don't want to be a dreamer anymore but I want to be a doer. Dreaming makes you think you're doing something, but you're not. You're not going anywhere unless you DO something.
Marcus really confirmed so many things for me tonight. I'm currently living in Seoul right now and I've been here for technically 2.5 years. I'm going home to Canada in 3 weeks. I have no idea what awaits me, but I'm really excited. Terrified and excited at the same time. I've got an open road ahead of me. As scary as it is, I know it's going to be a beautiful journey.
In his sermon, Marcus shared with us three keys that would allow us to create and recreate the truth and love of God in our everyday lives. He redefined what it means to be creative.
1. Receive your inheritance.
We need to be in a place where we receive words of life. A place where we are being guided by those who are wise and mature. That would mean to be in submission to someone else other than me. We love independence. We think we know it all, but that's may be the biggest red flag to the terrible truth that you may not know it all. Wisdom and truth from a mentor is so necessary. It's a humbling place to be at, but a place where life flows.
2. Beware and stay away from the pitfalls such as fear
Fear limits us from trying anything. We dream something for 2 minutes and then fear destroys it. Fear keeps that dream far away. It'll never be a reality because we give too much control to our fears rather than controlling that fear. When we have the first key, we should know that we are in a completely safe place.
3. Be Willing to JUST DO IT!
This is so obvious. We have to just do it. We need to take small simple steps. Not doing anything doesn't take us anywhere. How does a song get produced? The artist sits down, jots down a few words here and there, plays around with different melodies and BAM, you've got beautiful music. My small steps will take me higher. These small steps will let others take giant leaps into their own destiny.
Hold onto these three keys and you'll do great things in your life; things you thought you could only dream of. With these three keys we're going to change the world. No more of the same ol' same ol'. The worlds needs for us to be creative! Go and just do it!
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
