One Year Ago

Amazing what a year can do. One year ago today, I took a HUGE leap of faith and quit my full time job as an Occupational Therapist. One year ago I took my life back. I began working on me. The HUGE leap of faith, trusting God and following his direction...that one step...led me here. If I knew what September 1st, 2018 was going to look like I would have been paralyzed with fear and unable to move forward. That is the amazingness of God’s timing. With obedience God will give you a tiny piece of the picture and the next step. Learn the lessons, do the work that needs to be done, be obedient and God gives you the next piece, and the next piece, and the next piece. Some of the pieces are easy and you accomplish the task so easily...and some are so HARD!!! But those hard lessons of obedience is where you grow! Those are the seeds that have to be planted and watered, weeded, watered some more, fertilized, sang to talked to loved, and watered some more. Then God will hand you another piece of his provision and you step back and see the whole picture...and wow...what a masterpiece that only my father in heaven could have ever thought of! Who knew that those times of pressure...where I felt crushed...was only creating a diamond in the rough. God has been polishing me to shine. I stand before you a humbled human being, with my hands lifted high telling you that God will use you for huge things...if you are just open! You have to rid yourself of the negative, let go of your past, OPEN YOUR BIBLE and listen. Some of my friends are walking around with a God shaped hole in their heart...and they are trying to fill that hole with STUFF-shopping, food, gambling, tearing others down, alcohol, pornography...but those things can never fulfill your heart. I finally gave up my need to carry my own baggage...that pesky control freak inside. A year ago I didn’t read my bible, I didn’t pray everyday, I was still trying to figure life, marriage, raising babies, being a friend, a business owner...trying to figure it out all on my own. We are sheep...not load bearing animals...God wants to carry the load, he is asking you for your burdens. I promise you it won’t be easy...but it will be the most fulfilling season of your life. Crazy, insane, huge, wonderful, scary, life changing things WILL happen when you lay it all down at the feet of Jesus.
