Living your calling requires you to recognize and overcome your own set of obstacles-your personal calling blockers. The extreme adventure of your calling requires courage, resourcefulness, and willingness to confront new and unfamiliar challenges.
Personal Growth
Did you know that you can start over? I guess I always knew that I could but I lost sight of it. I forgot that "another chance" is really what the Gospel of Jesus Christ is all about. As the Christian cliché states we are not just afforded a second chance but another chance.
Have you ever had one of those days at work where it seemed that everything you touch goes wrong? Maybe it has been more than a day, maybe a week even or God forbid it seems to happen all of the time.
As an entrepreneur when I fall short at work there is no one to blame but me. For now I am a one woman show. One of the hardest things I have found in being a business owner is separating what I do from who I am.
The wise woman builds her house; a foolish woman tears hers down with her own hands. Proverbs 14:1 (NLT). The first woman is described as wise because she builds her house but the second woman is called foolish because she tears down her house with her own hands. Wow, she tears down her own house with her own hands. I wonder does she realize. I didn't.
But Lots wife looked back and she became a pillar of salt. Genesis 19:26 (NIV, 1984)
What are you leaving behind in 2013? Are you excited about the things that God is going to do through you in 2014? I pray that you are. Letting go of something that is familiar can be pretty hard.
I wish that my words could express all that the Lord has been to me. He has shown up as each of the names that He is called in His Word and then so much more.
I affectionally call Him Father because the Bible told me that even though I have never known or seen even a picture of my earthly father, He is a father to the fatherless.
I am looking forward to having more joy this year. How about you? I don't want my feelings to be solely controlled by what's going on around me anymore. Why? Because things are always changing and there is always something going on. There is always something to complain about but I have found that there are even more things to be thankful for.
What I love about this book, You're Going To Be Okay, and the author, Holley Gerth, is that it speaks life into the reader and any situation the reader may be going through. Holley is an encourager and her gift of encouragement pours out onto the pages of this book.
Marriage operates best when God's blueprint is followed.
Bible Study
We can come to our father and say I don't have it all together Lord but I know that you can help me. You can still heal me. You can still use me. You can add to what little I have.
