Good Evening everyone. How are you guys? Did you have a great weekend? I hope you did, you deserve a good life, week and great days. You guys are awesome, and you are created for a good life according to Ephesians 2:10 and according to John 10:10 Jesus came that we might have life and have it to the full and in abundance until it overflows. The word life in that verse is the Greek word ZOE which is the higher life, the God life. A life full of goodness, victory, creation, joy and effectiveness. I had a great fabulous weekend and I am so excited to tell you about it. As some of you know from my social media updates I went to Paris for a few days and I went to Disneyland. Its funny because originally, I was going to Paris for the Christmas markets and the plan was I go to that and after that I go to Disneyland, but plans worked out differently that I went to Disneyland first only to realise that God had me there to experience the magic and the joy, euphoria of it. And guess what the Markets for Christmas were even put up yet, so I am thankful that I bought the ticket for Disney because it reminded me that life is simple and joyful, life doesn’t have to be so serious and you just have to let go and allow Gods Joy to flow through with each other means God choses.
So, on the morning of my flight I was excited to relax, I got to the airport on time, had a Starbucks breakfast. I waited a while because our flight was delayed for about an hour or so, but I was excited to do something for myself. God has me on such a beautiful journey of wholeness that I am getting comfortable to go somewhere alone. It is not alarming to me or weird because I generally enjoy my own company. I enjoy hanging out with me, I think I am cool and amazing. Of course, it’s lovely to go with people but I have wanted to go back to Paris and to have the opportunity to go to Disneyland that I couldn’t wait for my friends to make up their mind. So, I decided I am no longer waiting for people, family or friends to decide if they want to experience the things I want to, I have decided that I am going to the amazing things that God has put in my heart. So, I landed in Paris, around 11:45, but I didn’t leave Charles De Guelle airport until 2pm and I didn’t check in until 3pm so by the time I got to Disney land it was 4.30pm which on weekdays the day is nearly over. So, I want to share with you what my experience was once I was there.
The title of this blog is a beautiful mind, right? The reason why I called it that is that I didn’t realise how beautiful Walt Disney’s mind was until I got there. For him to have that kind of vision and idea of a place where people not only feel like are in another world, but that anything is possible, and life is simple but joyful and it is to be lived. God gave Walt a mind that could conceive such a powerful vision and the wisdom God gave him to carry it out and to inspire others around him to continue creating the vision in other countries to the point that people from all over the world come to this place of magic and joy because we all want to just be happy and to experience paradise which is what Walt was trying to create. So, I got in and I was thankful that I didn’t miss the parade and Disneyland was full of all kinds of people: children, elderly, young people, mums, dad, couples and many more.
The first thing that captured my heart and my sight was beauty. Disneyland is beautiful especially during this Christmas period, the Christmas tree was up, the Christmas lights where up as well, the music was playing and I was just amazed because I love beautiful things so I believe the holy spirit had me go to Disney at the right time because it was decorated with Christmas decorations everywhere which I love.
2. Anything is Possible
The most powerful thing for me though was the desire, the message that anything is possible. I walked into Disneyland I felt free to dream, to achieve great things, I was inspired to live out my dreams and to enjoy dreaming. The moment you walk in there’s a euphoria of magic and you can feel the vision of Disney. The Holy Spirit showed me that this man had a beautiful mind and God gave him the wisdom to create this beautiful world and I was inspired that God can use anybody. He is a God of mercy who is who gives wisdom to his people, his is a gracious God who loves people and wants to live his life through us and I felt that in Disneyland. I felt like if Walt could accomplish this then I can also accomplish it as well. Its one thing to have a vision but another to carry it out and what amazed was the fact that Walt Disney was confident to carry it out and for people to move his vision forward when he died.
Another amazing quality about Disney was the joy. There is a lot of joy from the people, the staff to the atmosphere. It was lovely to be in a place where for now you just forget about your troubles and nothing else. Life is not to serious, its a beautiful thing that we should have no matter what. I was reminded not to let anybody still my joy but to enjoy it because it is in on the inside of me.
Overall, this trip was amazing. I enjoyed my first day more than my second day in Disney land. I enjoyed spending time with me and I getting to know myself again because it is something that I have wanted to do in a long time and I am would recommend that you go, get a map of both parks so that you know where to go and decide a head of time what you want to do and where you want to go.
thanks and God bless you.
