Where are you storing up your treasures? Are you building them with tangible things or storing up all your treasure in your heart?
Wealth and prosperity can be found in the material things and the accolades you receive.

However, if you are wanting to create impact in the world you touch, wealth is not what is stored in your house, in your collections, or in your bank account.
Yet it’s a temptation we face every day as people pleasers. We want to gain acknowledgement for our hard work and efforts in order to feel good about ourselves.
But what if we didn’t care about what others thought? Would your dreams become a reality faster?
We tend to get in the way of our dreams and passions; allowing ourselves to be distracted and confused by our own impulses and even others miscues of success.
What in your mind determines that you are successful? By what definition have you achieved success?
Understanding where our mindset is in the way others see us helps to further our dreams by steering clear of obstacles (and yes that’s people and stuff) that gets in the way.
If you are looking at another class to consume your time and energy in order to pursue your dream, is it really a way of acceptance in a world of “This is how you do it.”?
Break it down in your mind. Be real, raw, and honest with yourself.
We can sugarcoat anything to make us think that’s what we need right there. But taking a step back and looking at it from a different perspective may bring about a different decision.
Those who desire to live out their passion and dreams, especially the ones that have been heavenly designed for you, take a different path. They step out on the other side where most are afraid to go for fear of giants, temptations, challenges, and failures.
What is it that you are wanting so badly in your life, but have yet to get the where you want to go?
Now I want to you think about it in a different way. What do you want to gain as you reach your dream?
When we stop making it so much about ourselves and see that the treasures are found in the relationships, in the journey, in the ups and downs, your direction and next step is more easily revealed.
Be ware of the traps that tell you this is the only way. You are YOU!!!
Don’t compare or try to make it be about someone else’s journey. This is your story to write.
The K.I.S.S. ~ Be the author of your life!
When you are the author, you are taking responsibility of what you can control. It’s not about trying to control everyone else. Control YOU!!!
- Your actions.
- Your thoughts.
- Your decisions.
And ultimately, let God be the creator of you, His masterpiece. You are always under construction.
Flaws will be uncovered. Talents will be discovered. God’s got you!!
Be the author of your life filling it with hope that only God can give. Clear the clutter. Stop chasing all the latest and greatest. Because when tomorrow becomes today, it’s another latest and greatest.
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” ~ Matthew 6:19-21
“Be the author of your life. For where your treasures are, your heart will be also.”
