As I have renewed and a stronger focus on my blog, Duvet To Desk. I want to focus on a deeper layer of growth and personal understanding while on the journey called life. Every year for about 8 years, I have had a goal that is about my growth. But for some reason in 2020, I am getting a strong pull to focus and spend more time thinking, reflecting, being intentional, and developing content around this blog. Continuing to strengthening myself in preparation for the future, within my spirit, my body, and my mind. Deeper into my heart and deeper into my soul.
So without further ado, I present to you the 2020 Mantra…
Follow Me, and I Will Make You A Fisher of Men: Wholeness & Humility
Where does the Fishers of Men come from?
· Matthew 4:19 (ESV) (one of my favorite bible verses), "Come, follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men."
· In order to be a fisherman, you have to know what you are fishing for, when to fisher, and how to fish - this requires intentionality, preparation, and patience.
· Maintaining wholeness and humility is a part of the equipment I will need to do the task I have been graced with. (To preverbally fish for people)
What does it mean to be whole?
· Containing all the elements properly belonging; complete,
· Undivided; in one piece.
What does it mean to be humble?
· Lowliness of mind
"By faith in his name, his name has made this man strong, whom you see and know. So the faith that comes through Jesus has given him this perfect health in front of all of you."
-Acts 3: 16
