As you read this blog post, I am still in my pajamas. The morning news is on my television. The windows are all open in my living room, bringing in natural light. My natural hair is in a high slept on puff with a colorful scarf loosely wrapped around my head. 

I’m at my dining room table. My planners, notebooks, and an empty dark purple bowl of peaches and cream instant oatmeal are scattered on the table around my laptop. I don’t mind the clutter now because it’s a reminder that I have lots of work to do today. My son is to the left of me watching Buster the Bus on my husband’s iPad in pure joy. 

I’m feeling eager to take on the day as I sip on my warm green tea. I am officially in my spring semester of college. I am still a freshman at my local community college. My major is Arts & Humanities, with a primary focus on Sociology. I can’t talk too much to my immediate family about my major or my degree plans.

I am a first generational college student, so my determination to break this generational curse is strong. I never felt so enclosed in my vision, goals, and aspirations than what I do now. The fewer people know about how I am approaching my goals, the better. The more grace I give myself, the better. When you grew up without a pot to piss and no window to throw it out of, you move differently. I’m more mindful and considerate about what to share and how I go about sharing. This year will require more of me.

Proverbs 4:11-13 KJV reads, “I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble. Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

Verse 11 informs us that wisdom directs us in right or straight ways. "I have directed you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in upright paths."

God doesn’t always speak to you when there are peace and quiet surrounding you. God can speak to you during moments of fear, chaos, and sadness. It’s up to you to listen and accept His instruction as He directs your life into the way of wisdom. God’s intention is to guide you to make the right decisions, and for you experience the guidance of God day after day. Lean on His will and calling for your life. Your dreams do not have to make sense to others. If your intentions are pure as you seek God and your dreams, you can hold off from sharing your growth with others.

God prepares the path for us, and His loving providence directs us. If you are willing to do God's will, you will have God's guidance. (John 7:17) I have learned that if you treat God's will for you and your life as a buffet lunch, choosing only what looks good to your sight, He won't direct you. 

That doesn’t mean you should turn your back on Him and place your life in your own hands. Frustration can arise in our lives when we feel as if we are in control of everything. Many people still do not understand God's will isn't for the curious; it's for the serious. If you are a Christian who is serious about breaking generational curses, then don’t doubt your potential or God’s calling upon your purpose. Faith in God, while experiencing mental and physical clutter, is possible.

I have been reading The One Year Bible KJV. 
This book is the entire King James Version of the bible arranged in 365 daily readings. It is never too late to fill your spirit with God's word and truth.
