All Is Well?
It's Exceptionally Well in 2012!
Every year we always look for something we can sink our teeth into. We look for something that we propel us to accomplish all those things that we have resolved in our minds or on paper to do during the ensuing year. I'm no different than everybody else.
Oftentimes we grab a hold of sayings, acrostics, or aphorisms that help to keep us on pace with our goals. When we hit those pivotal points, quarter, half year, or the three quarter-mark, our determination and diligence in reciting these declarations can make a huge difference in our success and achievements.
In more instances than not, they also help to elevate our mindset to think beyond the here and now as we proceed through the vicissitudes of daily life. In our finiteness, we completely understand that things happen. As we stretch to connect our finiteness with God's infiniteness, we embrace a mindset that propels us beyond the limitations of our finite world. Then we can declare, "It's exceptionally well in 2012!" We progressively move forward even in the midst of it all.
It is amazing the resiliency and strength God placed in the human character. There are so many things that we don't understand that could actually throw us off our game. Losing a job, lack of finances, termination of a relationship, or death are always at the forefront.
I am reminded of the Shunamite woman in 2 Kings who had to endure the heartache and pain of losing her only child. A son, that she had almost but given up birthing until the man of God prophetically pronounced her ability to conceive. Yet in an instant death reared its head and she found herself trying to understand why would she be given something only to have it die.
As she maneuvered to get to the Prophet who had pronounced life several years before, she went with a determination not to allow anything to distract her. As she went when asked what was happening, she emphatically stated, "All is well!" Even when she confronted the Prophet she provided the same answer but implored him to come with her. When they returned to her house, he laid on her dead son and life was brought back to him.
You know, each of us have to grab a word that can propel us through the perceived dead situations of life. There are going to be times when it appears that the promises of yesteryear have died, but you can't give up hope. Do as this woman did. Continue to speak your words of life with conviction and authority as you proceed to do what is necessary for resuscitation to place.
There are projects, tasks, relationships, etc., that may appear to be dead. There are things that you thought died last year that is only waiting to be resuscitated by your faith to speak life into them. You know what I'm talking about, the book, the blog, the business, the relationship, the weight loss, the finances, the house or whatever it may be. Lie on top of it and breathe breath back into it.
If you don't have your own mantra borrow mine, "It's Exceptionally Well in 2012!"
