Living Life In 3D

Earlier this week I posted an episode on my YouTube channel, Brian Evans Unleashed, highlighting the importance of getting busy fulfilling your purpose.  There are three dimensions that we have access to as created beings, and each dimension has the power to influence and shape our destiny.   I’m referring to the dimensions of our past, present, and future.  Learning how to harness the power of each dimension requires the proper perspective.  We must be prepared by our past, planted in our present, and focused on our future if we desire to walk in our greatness.

Prepared By Our Past

As much as we would like to, there is absolutely nothing we can do to change our past.  Unfortunately, many people are paralyzed in their present because they keep reliving the traumatic events of their past.  While the past is permanently fixed, it still serves a purpose as we march forward into the future.  We learn valuable lessons from looking in the rear-view mirror of our past.  We can contemplate our successes and failures and learn from each experience.  In fact, this ability is what makes us beautifully human.   By placing our experiences in proper perspective, and successfully compartmentalizing our failures, we become stronger, wiser, and better prepared to tackle the challenges that will arise when we TRY AGAIN!!!!  This leads me to the next dimension…

Planted In Our Present

The present is perhaps the most powerful dimension in which we live.  It gives us the opportunity to recover, rebuild, and renew or focus.  It behooves us in this dimension to be intentional and…well…present.  Being planted in our present is essentially making a commitment to fully engage with every opportunity that presents itself to us.  What makes the present unique is the potential that unfolds before us with each passing second.  New thoughts and ideas emerge in the present.  Intimacy is forged and strengthened in the present.  Futures are designed in the present.  In the present is where life itself blooms in all its splendor.  However, the tragic truth is in the present things are also lost if we are not intentional.  We sometimes focus so much on the other two dimensions that we fail to fully plant ourselves in the beauty and splendor of our “now.”  Cherish your present, because as quickly as it comes, it flies away.

Focused On Our Future

There is nothing more exciting to me than traveling to the future in my imagination and sliding back into the present with new dreams, visions, and goals.  The joy that it births keeps me light on my feet, especially through the tough times.  God has plans to give us a bright future, full of hope and expectation.   A significant part of discovering purpose in our lives is believing there is greatness waiting for us up ahead, and working hard to make it happen.  The present isn’t always a pleasant place.  Focusing on the future while learning from our past provides an anchor when the waters of the present moment get choppy.   Never give up.  Your future is worth the wait, so start living your life in 3D today.

Sometimes, seeing truth requires a second look.  Our past hurts can sometimes interfere with our perceptions of life, and there are times when we must do the heavy lifting of challenging our reality.  Are you just looking at life pass by you, or are you really engaging your vision to see and take advantage of every opportunity?

Highlights From My Book Signing (Success)

Just because it didn’t happen the last time you tried, doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen if you try again.  NEVER STOP TRYING!!!!!

There are times when life hits you so hard it knocks the wind right out of you.  Circumstances you never expected show up on your doorstep one day like an unwanted solicitor demanding your attention.  These circumstances give us great pause and sometimes may even cause crippling despair.  Because of our limited perspective, we can only see, feel, and understand what we are  presently experiencing.  The poignancy of the moment blinds us to the greater reality that God has a purpose for our pain, and in time, this purpose will be radiantly revealed if we simply keep living.

The life experiences that I write about in my book, The S.P.E.A.R. Paradigm: Encountering God blinded me from seeing the reality of what God was actually up to.  I admit, there were times when I didn’t want to live, but I was too afraid to die.  Stuck in a mental purgatory, I allowed depression and anxiety to rule and define my life.  I had quietly given up on God and myself.

I lived in this purgatory for years before God finally found me and rescued me.  It wasn’t until then that I realized he was there the entire time.  Though I walked away from him, I could never escape his compassionate and protective gaze.  His mercy has escorted me to a place of healing and wholeness that I never imagined possible.  I now see and live my life in full color because of his perfect love.  Fear has no place in my life today, and by his perfect love I’ve been set free.

These moments that were captured at my book signing event represent more than just moments in time, they capture my journey of epic failures, discoveries, and awakenings all in a single moment.  Will you allow God the opportunity to take you on an amazing journey of your own?  Ditch the fear and insecurity, and launch out into the deep.  I promise you won’t regret a single moment of it.

“…The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”  ~James 5:16, NIV

“Now someone may argue, ‘“Some people have faith; others have good deeds.”’ But I say, ‘“How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.”‘  ~James 2:18, NLT

The purpose of prayer and faith is more than just talking to God.  Prayer becomes effective and powerful when God answers with a plan of action.
