Book finished! Whohoo!!!
Are we really near the end of the second month of 2017?!? Say it ain’t so! I don’t know about you but I’ve been fighting like crazy to complete my goals. The one thing that I’m happy about is that the final draft of my book is done! HALLELUJAH!!!
There have been so many distractions surrounding this process. That should be no surprise whenever you’re doing kingdom work. The book was almost complete and then I had unexpected health challenges, family drama, schedule changes, and my daughter was having major stress issues that needed my immediate attention. When I heard Bishop T.D. Jakes at my church’s New Year’s Revival last month he said, “Pick your highest wall–it’s demons sent to discourage you from getting your bread…the wall will come down but you gotta fight. The devil thinks you won’t fight!”
Will you fight? We have to become aware of the distractions, eliminate and turn away from them and FIGHT!!! What you have on the inside of you is not only for you, it’s for those in your family, on your job, in your community…THE WORLD! You can’t keep it inside of you and you can’t let it keep getting suppressed with, “I’ll do it next year.” Nope, do it now! There are people depending on you who needs what you have to offer.
Bishop T.D. Jakes, Joint New Year’s Revival 2017
Beloved, He’s given you everything you need to make it happen. And guess what? It’s already inside of you. When you’re ready, do the following:
1. Ask God
Who would know better than Him? Lord please show me my purpose right now. What did you create me for? I’ll give you a window into my program; the clues often start with something from childhood. Your purpose can also be birthed from a struggle too. Remember your purpose is always changing and leading you to your ultimate destiny.
2. Trust Him & never doubt what He said
When He shows you, don’t fall victim to dream buy-in. I used to do this. Dream buy-in is when you tell people about your dream. And when they shoot it down, don’t get as excited as you, or have the look that says, “What the heck is she thinking,” you get discouraged. It’s hazardous to your health. If God put it there it won’t go away. And if He said it, that’s the end of it. It will happen and no man can stop it!
3. Take Action
Get with a coach, ministry leader, career advisor, accountability buddy and work it out. Time waits for no one so just move. God wants you to be obedient so He can tell you what’s next. My book was done and the day before I submitted it for the next step, the Holy Spirit spoke to me as I was in my car listening to my Hillary Scott CD. His spirit told me something that He was going to make happen. It was a dream I wanted as a child and a teen. The desire never left me decades later as I saw glimmers of my love for it into adulthood. I was thanking God the rest of the ride, crying and praising Him. You may forget and put it to the side to complete other things, but God NEVER forgets. It all ties together.
My former client Claudia has experienced priceless transformation through my program. I’m so excited that she has signed on with me again! She is ready to give birth to something special.
I know how much of a daily struggle it is to stay focused with all that we have going on. Even to write this message to you, with all that is calling my name, is a struggle LOL. But I love you enough to let you know that God wants more from you. What has He given you that you have turned your back to? What has He given you that seems too big to conquer? What did you give up on? What has He given you that you have yet to unlock? What do you think is dead? What do you need Him to resurrect? You did know that He is in the resurrecting business right?
Let me help you; we’ll pray together and get you moving. I have been called to help you in 2017.
