Divine Redesign

artistSo many people today are struggling to live a fulfilling, meaningful life. Their struggles are often tied to their inability to see and think beyond their current circumstances. They resign themselves to being “boxed-in”, feeling they have limited options and opportunities to change their lives. They let other people’s opinions and expectations keep them emotionally secluded in a place of fear, anxiety, guilt, malaise, irritation, and displeasure. Afraid to take risks, they stay stuck inside constraints that keep them from flourishing.

It’s time to break out of the box of mediocrity, complacency and dissatisfaction! To shift from flailing to flourishing, you need a divine redesign of your life. Redesigning your life starts with getting new blueprints from the Master Designer. Here are ten areas where His design expertise can upgrade your life:

  1. Seek God’s wisdom and purpose for your life. He has some incredible plans for you (Proverbs, 3:4, Jeremiah 29:11)!
  2. Dream BIG! Start dreaming about what could be and stop despairing about what’s not (1 Corinthians 2:8-9).
  3. Exercise your imagination more. Thinking ‘outside the box’ gives you the opportunity to redefine the box (Proverbs 8:12).
  4. Don’t let others’ opinions and expectations become constraints for your life. God’s opinion of you is the one that matters the most (Romans 8:31).
  5. Raise your expectations. Just because bad things happen in life doesn’t mean you have to walk around in fear (Psalm 112:7). Live courageously!
  6. Focus on solving problems rather than promoting them. Most of your challenges aren’t going to disappear overnight, so adjust the way you respond to them (Psalm 49:3, Romans 12:2).
  7. Invest yourself into others. You will reap what you sow into other people. However, don’t expect your harvest to come directly from those into whom you have sown (Galatians 6:7-8).
  8. Do something different. One definition of insanity is doing the same thing continuously, but expecting a different results. It’s time to crush complacency in your life (Proverbs 14:12).
  9. Make drastic changes if necessary. Break out of internal (emotional) and external (job, relationship, habits) boxes that are unhealthy or destructive (Matthew 9:17).

Key question: If you were standing on the outside of your life looking in, what would you tell yourself to start doing, stop doing, or do differently?

Seize the day, embrace a divine redesign, and start living the life you were meant to live!
