The truth is Swag is boldness; it's not arrogance, but it is confidence. Swag most definitely comes from being comfortable in our own skin. If swag is confidence, then we should have a sure confidence in everything we do to successfully achieve it right?. Confidence comes natural when we have a surety and purpose in what we're doing. And the only way to be sure of what we're doing is to do it on purpose. Not "the toilet paper just ran out, so I have to go buy some more" type of purpose, but the divine purpose and authenticity that each individual has for their lives. In this video (Shared Below) Bishop T.D. Jakes shares how we have a "Divine Design".
However, even though we are creatures of purpose, sometimes the purpose can seem too heavy, our background, and the issues of our minds can leave us feeling swag-less and of ill confidence. What are you designed for? This message: "I Got What It Takes" empowered me to share, when we do get busy doing whats right for us, we feel a sense of swag, a glimpse of divine purpose that leaves us with a don't care attitude. The lack of care for all the negativity or naysayers we may have. At times conviction is even more powerful than confidence. What purpose and direction have you been convicted in? Its best to embrace the fact that no matter what may seem overwhelming, we have what it takes to handle it. Going forward in confidence gives us the permission to dismiss all blocks or boundaries to peace. Any and all issues that we may ever have are simply common. There is a dynamic swag factor about this fact.
T.D. Jakes discusses further...
###"No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it." (1 Corinthians 10:13)
With the knowledge that there is nothing that we can't handle, it's impossible not to go forward in full confidence of who we are and what we are created to do. Swag is in purpose, and divine purpose is in divine calling. We channel our swag in having absolute conviction of our values. Let's value the things that most benefit us, all because... We Got What It Takes!!!
