When I was in grade school, as the end of the school day approached, students were anxious, and ready to go home. My teacher would often tell us to sit in our seat as we waited for the sound of the bell for dismissal. Sometimes we decided to have social seating as we moved around the class, and visited the desk of other students. Once the bell rang, we would rush to our desk, knocking things over, run into one another while gathering our belongings. What if we were obedient and listened and remained in our seat until the bell rang for the student release? I’m quite sure not as much havoc or chaos would have occurred.
Same question I ponder in life’s destiny and purpose. Sometimes, individuals are anxious and move around, socialize at another person’s place and leave their own seat of success unoccupied. Sitting in your seat until your appointed time is key. Life has a way of designing the right moment for you to be released to fulfill your purpose without your moving around. Sit down, listen and learn. Knowledge is powerful when poured, but potent when settled. Digest knowledge in your seat instead of socializing and creating conversations. If you tend to get antsy and fidgety, consider maturity as a resolution. No one else can sit in your seat of success but you. It was designed for the weight of your life and the power of your purpose.
