How my AMBITIONS fail me.

by - 05:44:00

Hey peeps.

So lately, I have been going through a phase that has kept me thinking and processing quite a bit.




I have been thinking about life (my life), education, finance, dreams, visions etc.. I am sure you get the drift lol.

I have so much I want to do and also get involved in but at times my ambitions fail me.

They fail me because, the more I think on things, the more excited I get but then, it comes to a stage where everything comes crashing down.

The best way to explain things is by using the example of a 100m race that has an obstacle at the end to help the runners stop/slow down once they cross the finish line. Everyone starts off geared up, and they stay geared up even after they cross the finish line and that is why the obstacle is needed as it enables to stop.



Now if I am to bring myself into this example. I am like the runner/sprinter in the sense that once I start thinking about my goals and ambitions, I start off with so much enthusiasm and determination but then I hit the obstacle and its like my entire mind of ideas comes crashing down.

With my personality, I ask questions, and I over-think. whilst some may say both qualities have some positive impact/effect on one's life, I would say they can also have a negative effect.



In terms of this predicament that I find myself in, as I continue to ask myself questions and over-think about every vision, goal and ambition that I have, it gets to a point where I no longer have answers to my questions. The more I ponder on that evident fact, the more draining everything becomes until suddenly there is this big CRASH in my head!

The term 'Analysis Paralysis' comes to my mind. It is the idea that if you spend much time thinking about a thing, you will never get it done!

For me, this is where my faith in God kicks in.

I have come to realise that God will never really give you the full picture of life and so there will always be questions.

However, this is where faith (meaning that you have peace even when you do not have all the answer) kicks in.

In times like this, I am reminded of Romans8:28, which talks about how God will always cause things to work out for the good of his children.

Therefore, I may not have the answers to all of my unending questions but I know God is in control.

I may not understand but the key thing is remembering that God will cause ALL THINGS to work out for my good.

Wish me all the best in my journey of faith (trusting God with my life).

Till next time.

  1. I love this! :)
    When we stand at the shores of the red sea with seemingly insurmountable obstacles ahead of us and behind us, it is then that God bids us "go forth". Our vision is as through a glass, we only see from moment to moment. God does not reveal to us the immediate future, that we may learn as a child does to trust implicitly in our loving Heavenly Father. THE faith of our fatherAbraham was that of hearing the voice of God (we must be attentive to hear what the Spirit says), submitting himself to His divine purpose and obeying Him even though the way seemed unclear and near impossible. IT is written: Hebrews 11:8-12 AMPC [Urged on] by faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed and went forth to a place which he was destined to receive as an inheritance; and he went, although he did not know or trouble his mind about where he was to go. [Prompted] by faith he dwelt as a temporary resident in the land which was designated in the promise [of God, though he was like a stranger] in a strange country, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, fellow heirs with him of the same promise. [Gen. 12:1-8.] For he was [waiting expectantly and confidently] looking forward to the city which has fixed and firm foundations, whose Architect and Builder is God. Because of faith also Sarah herself received physical power to conceive a child, even when she was long past the age for it, because she considered [God] Who had given her the promise to be reliable and trustworthy and true to His word. [Gen. 17:19; 18:11-14; 21:2.] So from one man, though he was physically as good as dead, there have sprung descendants whose number is as the stars of heaven and as countless as the innumerable sands on the seashore. [Gen. 15:5, 6; 22:17; 32:12.]
