What would you do today if you decide to walk away from your job? How would you take care of your needs? Would you be willing to downsize? How about starting your own business? Well, I asked myself these same questions, well may not the same exact questions but in the same area of starting over or just walking in what I believe I was designed for or purposed for.
See, I know that my talent, gifts or passion stretch so much further than I’ve been through. I can look back over my life and I see what I’ve been through and done. But when I look at if I have utilized my gifts well I would say yes but not enough.
I believe that God has purpose and placed me in places mainly for development and training. Now that our children are grown I believe that I can step out and look for opportunities to utilize my gifts more efficiently. So I know you may be asking what is that gift or purpose. Well, it stems from what I’ve been doing all alone or all my life dispelling doubts, encouraging those that are discouraged and motivating those who are motionless.
Let me break it down a little further. To dispel doubt we most know first of all the truth. The truth is connect, directed and fueled in the word of God. God says in “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;”
Proverbs 3:5 NIV. So, as this scriptures states that we should not rely our understanding or experiences but rely or trust in what God word says or even what He says to us through our relationship with Him about our situation. This is only one of the many scriptures in the Bible that relate to relying on Him.
Next, how can I encourage those who are discouraged? Well, first I use my own experiences of being depressed, lonely and discouraged. My pass experiences were not so good. I remember looking at myself as lost, going now where, never getting marred, owning a home or having my own business. Well, I can say that I’m not lost because I know who I’m connected with and He guides me, not the news. I’m married to a wonderful man who love me and I truly love him for over 20+ years. We have 5 beautiful children of whom we have lead to inspire and grow independently. We’ve own two homes so far and God has moved us in leadership in our church. All that we experience was on purpose and on time. I can say when you will get where you are designed to be but you will if you hold on and hold on to God’s promises.
As far as being a motivator I’m just grateful and I’m walking in my purpose daily. I don’t think it hard because it what I am a motivator. Do I have days down? Yes, but I guarantee you that those who see my light daily notice those days and they usually remind me that they appreciate my gift.
All that I am is predicated on what I was molded into by my designer. He designed you too. Walk into your mold. You are unique and beautifully made. He may not need you but others may need what He gave you to see Him.
