Reflecting through this process got me to thinking last night. I began to wonder Why is it that so many of us are Fast Forwarding through Life? Through our Businesses? Through our Relationships? Through our Hope & Dreams? Through our Walk with Christ? We believe our Deliverance is tied up in our Final Destination, however our true strength & endurance is conditioned in the Motion of our Movie! Those tough times, produce the fruit that is most beneficial to us! The strength to go on; the agility to fight another day, the force of favor that will take you on a First Class Flight from the town of Barely Getting By to the Capital of Abundance!! (Whew that''s a sermon right there. I had to pause to add that to another manuscript I am working on) I'm not just saying this, this mindset-shift is and has been Working for Me!
I am not another blogger who is just taking pictures and posting messages for the world to see! I'm a little different! I am My Message! I am my Ministry! I am a Product Today of Every Mistake, Every Myth, and every Moment of Clarity I had to endure! I AM WHO I AM TODAY, BECAUSE OF THE WRONG TURN I MADE YESTERDAY!! I am thankful for all of what I went through because it humbled me. It broadened my horizons to where I could see life from another level, see situations from another standpoint, to look at life from a different vantage point! It made me more accessible to people; it shaped me to be more reliable, molded me to be more truthful, and ultimately my life has become so much more Fruitful! In just a few short months time I went from Penny Pinching day to day to a state of Overflow and Abundance. Finances and Opportunities are chasing me down now! Can you believe that? Just a while ago, I was chasing after my money, now Money is After Me! Now don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of being Chased, but if it's Money, I've got a bank Account to Put it in! But here's the Key! Creating my Blog caused me to experience some growing pains, however in two months time my Pain has been turned completely around for Gain! I have been able to network with people who are in the Same Field and I am able to focus on Changing Lives and Building Communities because I trusted God and Worked His Plan!
I am now reaping the benefits from strategic partnerships, but overall the ultimate WIN is that I am working on my craft, developing into the woman God has call me to be, and helping other people who got off course, are lost, or wandered and strayed away and need help returning home! There is no feeling like walking in your calling with confidence, authority, and dominion! I went from Wrestling with the Devil, to now Saying "I wish A Devil Would...." LOL (I had to laugh at myself on that one) But I had to choose to say that! I decided on that mindset. I let go of negativity and fear and am chasing after God with a new thirst and desire! I want to be so lost in Him, that I won't be able to recognize myself until I see Him! So remember there is Power in Partnerships, however your Primary partner should be GOD! Remember you could have the top notch Partner in the World, but if God isn't in it, your top notch could turn in to Disaster for You! So Trust God today to add others with Vision, Goals, and Like-Mindedness to your team while strategically removing any negative naysayers from your way.
Don't forget to Get Up, Look UP, Dress UP, Tighten UP, but most importantly Show UP!
