In a monologue from William Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet says “To be, or not to be—that is the question” and those words motivated today’s blog content. When I think of our ability to empower our lives, I think about how we often take advantage of our many opportunities. Like Hamlet, many of us find ourselves dissatisfied with life and the many issues that comes with it. Often we can be caught up in the undercurrents of undiscovered seas, better known as seas of no return. Many tread to these seas, and do not return sue to emotional, personal, psychological, and spiritual deterioration. In these moments, empowerment gets misplaced.
It is essentially up to us, to decide if we want to break the chains, as known as challenges, obstacles, disappointment, pain, discontentment, grief, brokenness, faded spirituality and faith and regain our “Purposed Position” in life. The reality of it is that we have the choice live or pass away. Of course, this is not a literal reference, however many of us tend to give in to the enemy. We give control to things that are pushing us backwards versus lifting us up and guiding us forward. To you I ask – To be or not to be empowered – What is the question? There should be no other alternative to empowerment, God determined our purpose and destiny before we were born. We decide what to do with the empowerment, purpose, and passion gives us.
Stand-up and take your position in life. Do not allow life and circumstances to direct you, instead allow God to guide you towards your entitlement over your spirituality, mental capacity, emotional reality, and physical vocation.
You are far more than you see in the mirror.
You are far more than what people label you to be.
You are far more than who you are today.
You are far more than your name.
You are entitled to be more than you are today, tomorrow, and forever.
