A New Book By Jacob R Summers
I believe questions have power. That’s why when I started a little blogging project a few years ago I based it around answering a few questions. I thought that if people could answer the same questions every day with the idea of improving their answers, their life might be changed. Over the years of writing hundreds of messages I arrived at seven questions I believe everyone ought to be able to answer well every day. But doing that takes concentration, motivation, and perhaps a little inspiration. My goal with this book is to inspire, motivate, and concentrate you on answering seven questions every day without hesitation. If you wholeheartedly join me in this project, I believe your life can be changed. Not because of anything I say, but because you will be paying more attention to your life and the way you’re living.
When was the last time you thought about your life and where it might be going? When was the last time you thought about journaling? OK maybe you don’t have to journal, maybe that’s not for you. But do you know it’s healthy? It’s healthy to understand what you’re doing in life. Speaking for myself, I find that I often try letting my dreams just come to me. Do you know what happens when you let your dreams come to you? Nothing! Absolutely nothing. Dreams don’t come, they have to be chased.
When we were young someone would ask us what we wanted to be when we grew up. The answer was hard but simple at the same time. It was hard to think of which cool thing you wanted to be. It was easy because hope was still alive. Everything was available. You could be an astronaut, a firefighter, or even a cowboy. What about now? What if somebody asked you what you wanted to be? Would you be able to answer without feeling a little uncomfortable?
And what about your destiny? Do you have one? A destiny is different than a dream for sure. But the destiny you were meant for has to be fought for as well. No matter what we do, we will have a destiny for sure. The question is whether it will be great. Will living your destiny be like living a dream? What do you see when you close your eyes and think about it. Do you see a bigger TV, or a purpose? Yes your life has a purpose. A great purpose. But it’s up to you to decide to chase after and capture that purpose. You have to fight for it like Jacob fought the Lord in Genesis 32. The Lord is always able win, but He values your fight for His blessing too.
Today, as you read this, are you ready for a fight? Are you ready to chase down your dreams and hunt down your destiny. Are you ready to make a difference in this world and are you ready for a difference to made in your life? Today is the day. Now is the time. You were made for this. Will you join me in making a difference? Let’s travel this adventurous path of inspiration, insight, and reflection together and see where it can go.
