Steadfast


Art Jamie Street

To be steadfast means to be fixed in place, not subject to change or firm in belief. As the year comes to a close, what have you decided to be steadfast about in the new year? Grab your journal and write it down.


If 2022 taught me anything it's that being steadfast in the face of troubles and trials is very necessary if you do not plan on being swept away by the currents of life.


Another lesson I learned was that having a strong set of core values and faith to anchor you is without question part of the life source you need to stabilize you in times of fear, uncertainty and being plain old confused, unsure of what to do.



Artist Ben White

What core values will you use to stabilize you in 2023? Core values help you to align your actions to the goals you say you want to accomplish or align you in your decision making process. If something doesn't line up with your values it can surely lead you in the wrong direction, keep you stalled, even left upset and hurt.


Make sure your values and plans align with your purpose and the destiny you believe you are called to. It takes time to narrow this down but it is doable. Doing this also helps you to manage your expectations by helping you to line up with experiences that are beneficial instead of draining. For example, if you knowingly connect with business partners that do not share at least some of the same values as you if not most what expectation can you have that your business goals and outcomes serve the same purposes? Knowing this up front will save you time, money and headaches. A helpful proverb, "Do two people walk hand in hand

if they aren’t going to the same place?" Walking into something with blinders on is altogether different concept than walking by faith.

Artist Moise M

You will absolutely need faith to see beyond hard or unexpected circumstances contrary to what you know to be God's plan for your life. Dreams are great but if you don't factor in the process to accomplishing those dreams you are fooling yourself. One good thing about the "process" that happens before you live your dream is it forces you into making a decision as to whether or not you will constantly choose to leave your comfort zone or remain the same and forfeit the capacity you need to shatter glass ceilings and actually do things to live the dream.


Now faith is, the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Faith is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the proof of what we dream and cannot see. You need faith to live beyond limitations and conformity to status quo. The Bible notes that faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd.

Artist Jeff Erhunse

So if you plan on living beyond your limits and other people's factor in faith! It's not always easy but faith grounds you in the choices and decisions that lead you into your best and most abundant life. If you only live by what you see count on a pretty dull and unsatisfying life. Faith is the glue you need to stay the course in order to answer the call of your God given "why". Revisiting vision to reset often helps us to be disciplined when the inspiration and motivation has left.


Sometimes we need to reset our boundaries and even our values too. Check in with yourself and reflect about 2022, do you need to reset to realign? If so, what values will you keep to help you stay the course and fulfill your goals.


I hope you also rest, (this was a big lesson too) not just physically but in your soul( mind, will, emotions). I hope you take intentional time to lay your burdens down and spend time in Gods presence letting those thoughts of lack and scarcity go and taking on Gods image and abundance mindset for your life. I hope you experience prosperity in your health, family, career, friendships, business and finances. 2022 also taught me that spiritual and physical rest is essential to growth and a growth mindset. Hustle culture is out and grace (for yourself and others) and alignment with destiny are in!

Artist J Balla

We can sometimes be steadfast in the wrong direction! Why does this happen? Usually a mindset that we've picked up along the way that no longer serves us and/or sabotages us from experiencing the abundant life we were created for. 2022 helped me shed some "stinking thinking" especially about God and myself. When we take the time to renew our minds in the areas where we are lacking we allow ourselves to be transformed. And isn't this what we really want? Because if we aren't growing , we aren't changing and if we aren't doing both we are stuck doing the same things expecting a different result, which is insanity. Yikes!


I pray you are steadfast about things and relationships that induce and impart growth and blessing and miracles in your life in 2023 and beyond. I pray you choose to be consistent in the areas that will bring you the most development, fulfillment and joy.


I pray you are steadfast about the call of God on your life or as scripture puts it "With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort."


I have chosen some guiding words for 2023, like prosperous, wealthy, servitude, generous, consistent, refreshed, revival, replenished, family, travel, witness and fun. What will your guiding words be? Whatever they are I hope and pray you remain steadfast to them as times change and life happens.

Good faces

As you set your intentions for the year be steadfast and burn your boat. Sun Tzu in his book “Art of War” taught armies to burn their boats and destroy the bridges behind them as they advanced into new territory. He argued that soldiers without the option of taking flight are more likely to prevail over their objective. As you burn your boat and create your non-negotiables I pray God surprises you with more than you can ask, dream or think according to His mighty power working in you. And I pray your faith and values help you manage the moments of 2023 well.
