Act As If. Feel As If.

Pen and paper. Napkin if I must. Anything to scratch down the words brewing inside. It’s February 1st, 2023. I have goals this year.

As I woke this morning, lingering and breathing through the thick in-between of sleep and consciousness, it settled upon me: I am to act as if I have already obtained my goals. DO things I would do if I had achieved them. FEEL what I would feel as if they are mine.

Act as if. Feel as if.

“Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” – Hebrews 11:1

What hopes materialize from a lack of faith? What evidence emerges from emptiness, fear, or desperation? “Every good and perfect gift” comes from a place charged with faith, fullness, contentment, and actions.

Maybe this is why Paul insisted in Philippians 4:11, despite his dire conditions, “I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.”

Content until complete. Faithful until filled. Act as if. Feel as if.
February 1st, 2023; I have goals this year.

Reference James 1:17, KJV: Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
