No Moves, No Magic

He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you."
Matthew 17:20

There are two things that I wanted to talk about today, both rather brief, but I feel they are bot relevant with the start of the new month. The first is the importance of movement and the second is the new direction that Syd and the City will be going in!
First, I want to quote the bible when we are told that, "Faith without works is dead" (James 2:17). I thought sharing that initially was important because I'm now going to tell you that it is important that we move towards our goals, even we we're unsure of what to do. This is something I've been struggling with recently and if it's not one of the toughest things ever. OH MY GOSH. Personally, I work best with a set plan wit steps, plans get me where I need to be. But in this oh so wonderful life we have, there is no plan I can look at to make sure I'm making the right moves, the only option is to move by faith. 

This is something that is actually hard. I think because humans are conditioned to see things as cost and reward, its anxiety inducing to think of doing something pretty costly to only not reap the desired reward. For example purposes, think of Michelle Obama who received two Ivy League degrees to become a lawyer only to realize she didn't like it. I'm currently reading Becoming and that's where I'm at. If she does decide to continue law, let me know and I'll get another example. Nonetheless, God has a funny way of orchestrating things because even when we don't reap the desired reward, we still gain something. Whether it be experience, new skills, confidence within ourselves, or a relationship with Spirit, it'll never be for nothing. 

Secondly, I'm excited to share that I'm moving Syd and the City in a more lifestyle direction. I love fashion and throwing on cute fits for you guys, but that's not what I'm here for. More than anything, I want to connect someone, somewhere to my main man upstairs. It is my goal to write about things that I feel are relevant to leading a more God centered life, being who you actually are, and loving everything that comes from both. Not much will change because I've been dedicating blog posts to these topics already, but I wanted to formally let anyone reading this blog know that.
