Has someone ever told you, “What’s for you is for you.”? Have you ever wondered how do you know? Not so much how ‘they’ know but how to decipher ‘what’s for you.’ I mean what GOD really intended for you. It can be difficult in the physical world to determine the written definition of some words let alone trying to determine what’s right in the spiritual realm of things. I say the best way to make sure is….BE STILL.
You see GOD doesn’t always yell and jump about to get our attention. There are times when he quietly nudges us into the right direction. But if we are not paying attention or we are focused on signs that are not of GOD we miss it and spend valuable time battling against our destiny. So, I say again….BE STILL.
Just as some believe angels are forever present assisting us with the will of GOD, the devil is also forever present. The devil’s job is to deceive by any means necessary. So, while you may have been offered that promotion that pays more money, it requires longer hours. God may not have that for you and instead would rather you keep your position that allows you more time to spend with your family, who in turn may need your physical support as oppose to your monetary support. To evaluate these things, you need to do one thing first…….BE STILL.
When I had this vision for Creative Moca Entertainment I knew GOD intended this for me but I was slow to move because I didn’t quite know how He wanted me to go about it. But I knew that once I started it and I didn’t follow through with it I would never have another chance. My connection with my college friend and business partner (Na’La Productions was our first company), LaZandrea Porter, gradually started to re-blossom (if that’s a word) and I met the talented and driven Kirsten Goodwin. Things started falling in place. So much so that I had to step back and……BE STILL for a minute, re-evaluate the direction I was going and who I was taking with me. Because everyone is not going to see YOUR vision and you have to determine what role people are supposed to play in YOUR vision. The successes Creative Moca Entertainment has had as a company is all because we (Zan and I) always take a moment to…….BE STILL and listen before we move in any directions.
If you are in transition in life and dealing with making some changes or moving on let Moca suggest………….BE STILL. And then when people tell you, “What’s for you is for you.” You can say with certainty, “I know!”
