Melissa—God has been preparing us, adding to us, delivering us, and training us for this moment. We start by being aware of that so that we don’t skip ahead unarmed. That awareness I’m talking about is a state to live in for the last half of this year. Simply put, we can’t allow ourselves to shut down and just get focused on getting past this middle section of the year so we can finish the year on autopilot. This awareness is something we can remind ourselves of when we get out of bed in the morning, “God is working something in me today that is propelling me victoriously into this decade I was born to affect.” Something along these lines would be a good verbal reminder each day.
