We Only Do What We’ve Always Done

By now, January should be full of those good intentions and monumental changes we imagined through the last months of 2015. We imagine everything will be better when the New Year comes.

There is an ancient proverb that says,

“One will only continue to do what can be incorporated into daily life.”

  • If you are a dominant person, you won’t read much more of this, having already accomplished the work wanted without much thought except just do it.
  • If you are a people person, you may resist making goals, plans and following through because you can’t remember if goals written for last year and finding them would be a challenge.
  • Another person would get friends together and see what they are doing before sharing your ideas of things written down for this year. The relationship with them is more important than airing your intent for the year, and may take longer.
  • Another person would have to check over everything done in the last year and make sure it was correct and worth doing before making any changes at all in this new year fearing the possibility for error before adding any new tasks at all.

Remember Alice?

Alice in Wonderland is walking down a path when she comes to a fork in the road and doesn’t know which way to go.

His reply: “Then it doesn’t make any difference”.

Where are you going, and what is your purpose, are you on the right track, or are there annoyances that keep you from Your Journey? What is your purpose?

At the Sheep Shed, we have a compass to follow and use to guide when we get off track and need to redirect. We could be repeating the unwanted patterns in life, haven’t dealt with unfinished business from past relationships, or present conflict we can’t deal with. And most important when we want to get closer to God. We use the four basic laws written into the universe that affect all of our lives as surely as gravity.

How to Develop Spiritual Authority

It is Your Journey; no one else can take it. Along the way, you discover for yourself and choose to reveal your uniqueness, your purpose, and your place to those who journey with you. God has called you to be in this time and place in history. God’s purpose for us is to create authority in the world around us and give it back to Him.

When you choose to be life giving to those around you and do not default to your weakness you gain authority. Very simply, do not ever let anything pass by you that you know is wrong without speaking about it. The result is not up to you, speaking or addressing it is.
