“You were someone before you were their mom, and that person matters.”
As women, we tend to put other people’s needs above our own. Whether it be our children or our bosses, we give all we have until one day we feel this pit in our stomach and begin to wonder what happened to us.
We think back to our prime and reminiscence on all that we thought we would be. We think back and wonder how our lives got the way they are. Not that our lives aren’t incredible and beautiful right now but there’s something inside that still longs for something. Now if you’ve never met Jesus – that’s more than likely the void that you are feeling BUT if you HAVE met Him and still have that desire?
That’s your gifting.
You need to get in touch with it and run with it. It doesn’t mean you sacrifice anything about who you are – you’re being liberated! You’re gaining your life, your fullest potential life.
You don’t have to give up your dreams, your desires, your biggest hopes because of the way your life is right now. Your life is amazing. But if you’re missing something? You know there’s more to you.
The problem is we don’t know what to do so we just do nothing.
We see the life we dream of and go all in, wanting it now. So we burn out because the drastic change we made wasn’t sustainable. Like when you want to change your eating habits or work out routine, rather than make small easy changes that make it something we can do forever – we cut out all bread, dairy, sugar, whatever it is and then have withdrawals because although we had good intentions, the process was wrong.
This is me. That’s what I do. So this blog is all about taking it slow and trying not to force something and just let it be. This is my journey to find out how to fulfill the calling God put in my heart.
You have worth, a purpose, a calling. That flame inside? Don’t smother it, ignite it. God has a plan for you – exactly how you are right now. Let Him use you. Be courageous.
Grab some coffee or tea, a few minutes alone (good luck!), and open your heart to laugh, cry, and let me challenge you a bit.
