Are you experiencing a bit of deja’ vu? Where you end up repeating the same negative situations over and over again. You may say to yourself, “I’ve been here before already, right?” There was a time in my life where I kept repeating the same patterns. I kept going in and out of one part time job after another. I gotten to the point where I was working two part time jobs at one time. Yet, I still couldn’t seem to make ends meet. I began to question what God’s will for my life was. Am I to continue on this hamster wheel. Turning around and around in circles and seeing no results.
I was led to this point of decision through losing everything. Well, so it seemed to me. I lost one job after another. Still not being able to keep up with the bills. I never thought that a credit card company could get into your bank account and actually take your money. And, it did and absolutely crushed us. On top of that send the sheriff to your house to serve you the papers. I was drowning in a sea of lack. Not understanding what was happening and how to get out of the situation.
After receiving the last boot from my last job. I didn’t rush into seeking another job. I decided to ask God, “What is up?” I asked him, “Why is everything falling apart?” After some deep time in prayer and in the word. He spoke to little ol’ me. He reminded me that I wasn’t being obedient to what he called me do.
I felt at first, I was following God’s will. After doing some searching through going through this financial windfall. I began to develop my own freelancing business. I gained a lot of clients and made a substantial income. I was finally proud of myself that I could stand on my own and dig myself out of this hole. I discovered to no avail after seeking God. He revealed to me that I had taken my focus off of his will and on to money. Money became first and foremost in my life. I believed God was my number one. The truth was I was deceived.
After wholeheartedly seeking God for answers. I was reminded of this desire in my heart to reach the lives of women, just like me. Had a desire in my heart to see lives change and hearts turn for the Lord. The Lord has been walking me through what my true calling was to become. Even though I had a glimmer in my mind what that could be. However, I had no idea how to get there.
The first step is being obedient to what he initially called you to do in the first place.
Once you are obedient in hearing and listening to what he has called you to do. The next step is gonna cost you. It has cost me big time. I walked away from the clients. I walked away from the money. I became a stay at home mother. I was dedicated to following what the Lord wants me to do now. I knew it was gonna require some sacrifice. Which I am still walking through as we speak. And, some judgement from friends and family that don’t quite understand what the heck your are doing.
You must stand firm in his word.
As I looked at Jesus life. He faced two choices:
- Save his own life
- Accept the calling and die for us
In Romans 12: 1: It says I urge you brothers and sisters in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.
This is where Jesus started, his life he laid down his life so that we can live. It is true for us today. There is something you must lay down and sacrifice for the sake of caring out God’s will for your life.
I know you feel it. You have been feeling like your light is slowly diming. You may feel a tinge of laziness where you feel that fire that you once had won’t be returning back. I’ve been there and it’s time to gain your passion in knowing and pursuing what God’s will is for your life.
The goal is to give back. You must gain back your fire and traction against the enemy.
Finally, watch my video that explores this theme a little more…
If you are struggling with finding God’s will. And, feeling a little apathetic. There is a book called, “UnVeiled Mother” available for download on Amazon. It will walk you through my personal journey while shedding a light for you to discover your most authentic self.
There is no time like the present to step into what God’s called you to do. It just has to be unveiled.
