Have you ever started a new venture and got lost in the weeds? What is going to impress people? What is going to draw in readers? What is going to entice people to buy my product? I’ve been there- ALOT lately and been steered off course. Questioning what I am doing and why I am doing it. Putting pressure on myself to conform to the unspoken ideals of people I know and even more so ones I don’t. My intention has not been but has turned into striving to get the like, the view and the approval of others, I know I’m not the only one feeling this.
GET OUT OF THE FEED AND INTO THE BIBLE
Where can I find solid ground? What is my purpose here? Who is my constant? The answer is simple, Jesus. He is going to provide the answers to my questions and breathe fresh breath into my writing. He is the one that has given me this gifting anyway right? A gifting I had tossed to the side and determined I wasn’t worthy of- cut myself down and drown my ideas and thoughts in negativity. So I guess this post is a reawakening – a new page, a fresh eye. Although I will be posting about DIY, deals and our financial journey here and there my heart has been turned back to the One who made all of this possible. The One who reached down and grabbed me out of my darkest places. The
One who didn’t want Heaven without me. Jesus. The utterance of His name brings peace and confidence that I don’t have to be the one because he already is. He has paved the way and has the perfect path for me. I have been given a new life in Him and He wants me to tell the world.
Thanks for being patient and understanding and loving me through the process. I know that God has big things for me because He promises it in his word.
“I’ll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out– plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” Jeremiah 29:11 Msg.
Think about those giftings you don’t think you are “good enough” for. The desires that are in your heart that you just don’t have the confidence in. Pray about them and RUN after them.
What are the things that you are relying on yourself for when you should be giving it all up to Him?
