A couple weeks ago I set some goals for our business....did a vision board and everything. I realized this morning I failed to put the MOST important goal of my life.
To please Him. To seek him daily. To love Him regardless of what He gives me or takes away....
I want to be a woman who is strengthened by His power. Not mine. To become a prayer warrior. To show grace to others no matter what. To love fully, be present in every moment, have intentionality and give thanks for everything! I want to be a woman who surrenders and doesn't try to control anything.
The goal of my life isn't to make a lot of money (even though there's nothing wrong with asking Him to bless you)......It's to make a life that means something and I can't do that without first seeking Him ❤️
Sometimes you see God work in big ways...and sometimes in small ways. Both are amazing 😉 but I'm always reminded that:
He WILL provide...so we can laugh and not worry so much!!💗
I don't know about you, but stress brings out the worst in me. These last few weeks have been hard...we're out of routine, haven't had a "home", (so thankful for my lovely in-laws who opened up their house to our crazy), attempting to keep our business going and growing, supporting our team and running accountability groups while we remodel the RV, clean out our town home, sell all the leftover stuff, sell two cars and purchase a new car, make sure Eli still knows we exist 😂 and spend time with him...plus try to remain sane, get our workouts in and try to have a little normalcy. There's been no time to think, breathe or process much.
I've been trying to control outcomes and circumstances rather than just trusting HIM and His faithfulness. He works in ways we don't expect...and can move the most impossible situations.
Why do we forget that when things get tough??! Because we're human and we're messy, that's why. The beautiful part about all of this is that He waits patiently and just draws us back to Him. But It's up to us to admit that we need a His help 💗 He won't force anything on us.
Yesterday as we were driving to look at a potential car to purchase, we took a second to pray together and just ask for guidance. After an hour or so of Dan chatting with them and me chasing Eli around 😜 the dealer wasn't budging on the price...so we decided to pack it up and keep looking elsewhere. 20 min later the dealer called and came really close to what we wanted...so we went back and bought it. We could have obviously just chalked it up to the stuff car dealers normally do...but it was pretty much exactly what we had been wanting to pay and it was everything we had been looking for. So yea. A God thing. Not a coincidence.
If you're going through some stressful times and feel like you have to control everything....or know how everything is going to work out. Just stop. Breathe. Simply do what is in front of you at this very moment and TRUST GOD with the big picture of your life!!
