I get to control the narrative I present myself and others by shifting my perspective.
In the book of Mark we are introduced to Yahusha at the age of 30. Before he appeared for his 3 years of public ministry his first thirty years were in obscurity in Nazareth. What's more is after his baptism and receiving of the Ruach Ha'Qodesh, the spirit leads him to the wilderness to be tempted for 40 days.
When I think of others in the bible none are given a proclamation/ anointing with immediate appointing or fulfillment. There is always space for preparation.
I must be present in the preparation and participate! Live in the fullness of now. Be passionate in what I experience each day.
That is living and not existing. You don't have to wait for the fulfillment of a dream, you don't have to pause life until a special event. Daily miracles should warrant daily appreciation for this life we are given to live and experience each day!
So think of that the next time someone asks "how you been?"
I've been presently living in the preparation and enjoying the daily miracles.
