When God opens the door, just walk on through it.  That is the only way you are going to get to the other side.

John 15: 1-5 (AMP)
Are You Connected
 
“I am the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser. 2Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that  stops bearing] He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent fruit.”
 
Who are you connected to?  Being spiritual beings living natural lives, it is a good idea from time to time to evaluate our connections.  Who do we have in our cirlces?  Are those individuals around us supporting or hurting our vision?  Above anyone else, Jesus tells us that we first should have a connection with Him.  Jesus is the vine and through Him, our success is determined.  Through Christ, we can do all things, but without Him, we can do nothing.  You will bear fruit as long as you continue to stay in God’s present and where he has annointed you to be.
 
There are some people and things in our lives that are taking up space, but do not mean us any good.  It is time for some pruning.  God wants us to have productive lives.   Somethings have to be removed in order for new things to their place.  I had a friend tell me,”God cannot bless you in a mess.”
 
You know the old saying “Birds of a feather flock together.”  Hang with those persons who will not leave you hanging.

2 Kings 7:3-8
 
“If you don’t claim your blessings, it is no one fault except your own.” 
 
There were 4 gentlemen with leprosy, and they were faced with a dilemma.  They could stay where they were and die or move and live.   So, they devised a plan of action and moved on it.  What did they have to lose?  They were already considered outcast and were dealing with the enemies of lack and not enough.  Why not take the risk? 
 
Just as these gentlemen did in 2 Kings chapter 7, we have to be willing to weight our options and take the risk.  Obviously, the lepers situation was not working for them, so, they had to make some changes.  They had to get up and move.

Matthew 6:31-34(AMP)
Focusing on verse 33
 
In Matthew 6 verses 31 and 32, we are told to not worry and be anxious how we are going to survive daily (how we going to eat, what we are going to do for a living, etc.) for our Father in Heaven knows what we stand in need of.  Verse 33 states, “But seek (aim at and strive after) first all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.”
 
Not exactly sure how you are going to make ends meet; having a problem finding conventional employment?  You have done your very best to apply for everything you consider yourself qualify for and then some, but the harder you try, the harder it seems to find what you are looking for.  What if you are working in a job, but you have a burning desire to do something different?  You have a feeling you just can not seem to shake.  You got to act on it, but do not exactly know how?  
 
Finding your place in the kingdom will lead you to your place in the world. There is a call for each of us.  Those gifts you possess can become your daily work.  We all have something to offer, and you are the person to do it.  Stop sitting on your gifts; the world is waiting on you.  The reason you are having a rough time right now could be that God is calling you to launch out into the deep and get out of your boat to start that business or change your career path.  Think about when you daydream, where do you go and what are you doing?  If you could have any job in the world, what would you do?
 
If He brings you to it, He can definitely bring you through it, and provide for it.  There are no layoffs or downsizing in the kingdom, and the best part of all is the benefits and pay are good.
 
Seize the moment – Time to get to WORK!
