• Seeking the Perfect Condition

     perfect conditions

    Ecclesiastes 11:3-4 Living Bible (TLB)

    3 When the clouds are heavy, the rains come down; when a tree falls, whether south or north, the die is cast, for there it lies. 4 If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.”

    People are always in search of the perfect time or condition. We do our best at forecasting our day, our week and life in general, but as you know life happens whether you’re prepared for it or not. Issues arise and catch you by surprise. As much as we try, we can’t predict the winds of life--it could change at the snap of the finger.

    According to the scripture in Ecclesiastes 11, you will never get anything done; if you pursue “perfect”. Your plans wills become obsolete, void, and futile. Eventually, time will decay and deactivate the potential fruitfulness of your idea.

    You will fail to sow! In essence, you will fail to reap. You can’t withdraw without first making a deposit. Life is about moving forward despite what is happening in the background and how the outlook is going to manifest. Audaciousness and faith are needed to take action in the storm, rain, or sunshine. Pushing the activation button will open the door to initiating your reality.

    Don’t wait for until the conditions are perfect to begin. Beginning makes the perfect condition.

    --Alan Cohen

    Bury the excuses and expose the truth in order to get the root of your procrastination:

    1. This is really out of my comfort zone
    2. I don’t feel prepared or secure in my decision
    3. I’m fearful about the outcome
    4. It’s too time consuming or challenging for me

    Purpose in your heart to take the initial footstep towards your vision. You may find yourself redefining “perfect”. The smoothly paved road you are looking for may not be what’s needed for you to begin your journey. However, the road filled with pebbles and stones may be best to help you build your future.

    Get started and see what happens!

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
