You Can Have It All!         

Expanding Beyond Boundaries        

                              

When I was about 8-years old I went to visit my father and his relatives. When I came home and was standing in front of my house I realized that just because they were no longer in my presence, they still were alive. It was one of those moments in the maturation process when you realize that the world was bigger than you. expanding beyond boundaries  

 

Up until that point, my mindset had not developed to realize that life was more than the block I lived on, the church and school I attended, and my family. In the finiteness of my mind, I probably thought everything stood still until I came into its presence. It was in that moment that I realized that there was more to this world than just my life. It was vast. More than I ever would be able to comprehend.

 

Oftentimes I ponder about that moment. I realize that it was in that instance my horizons expanded and I begin to embrace the expansiveness of God. Not long after that, my father took us on a trip to Washington DC. I ventured out of my comfort zone and went to a place I had barely recalled learning about in school. Yet, all it took was my Father taking us on a trip letting us know that there was more for us.

 

Unfortunately there are people who have self imposed limitations. Although God continues to try to enlarge them, they elect to remain in the finite existence that prohibits them from experiencing the vast world God has for them. They have self imposed geographic boundaries and refuse to venture beyond a certain point.

 

There are those who are victims. Everything and everyone stops them from progressing. They hide behind superficial barriers such as gender, age, poverty and yes color. All the while giving someone else control over their destiny and piling up a heap of excuses for not succeeding.

 

Excuses are like lying to yourself repeatedly. You tell yourself what you can't do and the more you say those words the more you believe them. Oh they are such lies! These are the deceptive words that prevent you from envisioning the great things God wants you to experience and become.

 

I often say a lot about my Mother and not much about my Father. My Mother was the center of my life. She was my rock and instilled in us the value of unconditional love. She was the one who made the sacrifices and who believed in me.

 

Although my Father was not always there, he did expose us to things like the trip to Washington DC that let us know that the world was bigger than just Detroit. We were not limited to our geographic surroundings. Eventually I actually moved to Washington DC.

 

What if I allowed fear to prevent me from going? I remember wanting my Mother to say don't go. But she wisely said, "Jacqui, many of them think that you are going to be back here in six months. Prove them wrong." At the time I thought that was the wrong answer. It wasn't. It was the best answer she could have given me. That answer liberated me.

 

When things were a little rough the first several months I was in Washington DC, again I went to my mother and wanted her to say come home. Once again she unselfishly said, "Yes, I want you to come home, but not unless you have something better." Wow!

 

Those words propelled me to not give up and run home. It caused me to expand and to grow. Each of my parents has played a role in my success and my overcoming the barriers of fear and doubt that would have kept me from exploring and experiencing an abundant life.

 

You know, God, our Father, wants the same thing for each of us. He wants us to be expansive and not to be afraid of anything or anxious about venturing beyond our comfort zone. He definitely does not want us to allow the barriers of this world to prevent us from experiencing an abundantly full life in this vast world of opportunity.

SCRIPTURES 

                  

And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested. 1 Chron 4:10 (KJV)

 

Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; Isaiah 54:2 (KJV)

 

See, I am doing a new thing; now it is starting; will you not take note of it? I will even make a way in the waste land, and rivers in the dry country. Isaiah 43:19 (BBE)

 

Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you Josh 1:3a (KJV)

 

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Eph 3:20 (KJV)

 

The Lord said to Abram, "Leave your land, your relatives, and your father's home. Go to the land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation, I will bless you. I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. Gen 12:1-2 (GW)

PRAYER

 

Father

I realize that there is so much for me. I will not be afraid to venture beyond my comfort zone. When I do, my boundaries are enlarged-not just geographical boundaries, but the boundaries of limitations in my mind. Each day I realize that You are doing exceeding beyond my loftiest imagination. I know that I can have whatever You say I can have in this vast world. 
 Amen
