For years now I have wanted to design my own life (with the help of God of course). I am not sure I ever really knew exactly WHAT that meant! I thought I did but I really had NO IDEA!
So as you know, I was laid off about 3 weeks ago. And, while I do believe one should never share their next move, I do feel compelled to share with you that I realize I AM in the driver’s seat of MY LIFE! I am WRITING MY NEW CHAPTER and designing a life according to God’s plan!!!
You know I pride myself on being authentic & genuine. The past is the past and you can’t rehash it, only learn from it but I will be honest and say that I wasn’t living my best life. I was not living up to my potential or God’s plan! Crazy how in 1 move He can fix that all?! #Godisgood
After I found out I was losing my job and the ugly crying & downward spiral stopped I heard God say “your new chapter doesn’t look like you think it does, you need to open your mind”! I was floored! The “unemployment phase of 2014 (aka my journey to Jesus” was NOT PRETTY! While it DID bring me to Jesus and forged an AAAAAMAZING relationship with Him & some of my close framily, it was full of financial stress! At the time of felt unbearable! I have said over and over: in looking back, other than the financial stress I WOULD NOT CHANGE A THING from the 2014 Journey to Jesus!! In the moments after I found out my fate I felt all of that terror and stress but within SECONDS God shifted my focus to Him and reminded me that “this time” I have Him from the beginning!!! I KNOW He’s got my back.
So now here I am, writing my next chapter. I am just over here walking on faith and listening to God! In all authenticity: this phase is a LOT of fun yet absolutely terrifying at the same time! I am full of hope and joy and focus and stamina! I am uncomfortable and as much as I KNOW “life happens outside of your comfort zone, being uncomfortable is…well.. NOT comfortable!
So friends, here is to getting (really) uncomfortable! To walking on faith and trusting God! To being brave and vulnerable (umm at the same time!)! To designing a life you absolutely love! And to living up to God’s potential for you! #ivegotthis #holdmychampagne
