Still Haven't Found What You're Looking For?
There's got to be more to life than this...
Dog Tired and Unfulfilled
Last week, we explored being underwhelmed and overutilized...
"To be underwhelmed but overutilized is to be busy with little benefit, to fill up your calendar with more work and less wonder. Quick to impress, but no impact. We can spend years investing into the expectations (or limitations) of the world and not produce any of God's fruit. Doing so creates a cycle of frustration and hesitation that will keep you dog tired and unfulfilled.
Dog tired. Unfulfilled. That was me."
The past several months, I've had to address this issue upfront and accept the fact that my disobedience in a particular area of my life was holding my rest and the full manifestation of my dreams hostage. Queues from my body and spirit provoked me to address my personal challenges and realign myself with God's will else my Heaven on Earth would remain far off. Continuing to be out of order meant underwhelmed and oversaturated would no longer be a season, but a lifestyle... a life of unrest. Not acceptable.
I know I am not alone in this dilemma because I see too many frustrated people living their so-called, "best life".

There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience. ~Hebrews 4:9-11, New International Version
So what's stopping you from embracing the rest that has your name on it?
God's Got What You Need
It's time to redefine what success looks like.
The book of Hebrews eloquently speaks about the superiority of our Jesus. We can trust the words of the great prophets because they gave us glimpses of His glory. The work of angels makes sense because they operate under his authority. We can oblige Heaven with our obedience and do what sometimes feels like meaningless or unrelated tasks. We can do by faith whatever the Savior asks us to, but do we?
Are we missing the mark when it comes to success?
Authentic, meaningful, transformational, Godly (with a capital "G") success is not measured in numbers or followers or likes. The success that matters to the Holy One is counted unto obedience. Obedience brings forth the harvest of an anointed, God-satisfied rest no
