QUOTE #2 – No Man is an Island

No man is an island and no man stands alone. One thing is for sure, to get to the top you are going to need support.

In almost every success story that I have ever read they always, always had someone who opened a door, provided financial support or as Miss Oprah says somebody to show them the way.

When Josephs brother sold him into slavery he must have felt devastated, confused and frightened. Just imagine being betrayed by those closest to you, being torn from family and what is familiar and taken to a strange new land. However, even under circumstances such as this we are never truly alone. Joseph experienced many ups and downs in Egypt from being in charge of Potiphar’s affairs, being thrown in prison before being brought to Pharaohs attention and eventually being second in command over all of Egypt. This story has many points but the one I am looking at today is that even in this strange new land Joseph the Lord provided supporters in the form of Potiphar, the prison warden and Pharaoh.

Its amazing how sometimes you come in contact with individuals who appear to be selfish with their support or maybe they reserve their support for certain categories of persons.We all can provide support to someone on their journey to the top, you never know what your role will be or at what stage of their journey you will impact someone. For each of us the journey is different but regardless of how you start out success can be yours.

I leave you with this African proverb: If you want to go fast go, go alone. If you want to go far, go together…

Until next time walk good.

Quotes – Be Patient

“These things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient !. They will not be overdue a single day”. Habakkuk 2:3

Oh I can not count how many times I have been anxious and worried when a deadline approaches or something that is really important to me seems to loom out of my control and I rack my brain for a solution, trying to fix things on my own.

The bible tells us not to worry because Gods plan for us will unfold in just the right time and in the right way, he is after all an on time God. Our all knowing all seeing savior that desires all that is good for his wayward children. I love this message because it reminds me that that my God has a plan for me and it WILL unfold in his time. It reminds me not to bury myself in worry even when things/life seems to be going awry. It reminds me to have FAITH because God is in control.

There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever. …Mahatma Gandhi
