**This clearly isn't my first rant :)**
If I can be completely honest with you I feel like I am at a complete lost for what I’m supposed to be doing. I left a full-time job working in Upper Management to work full-time on the magazine (I also think it was to focus more on my home and family) because God said so. I was excited but mainly terrified in what He was calling me to do. I knew my business wasn’t at a point where it would sustain my family financially and all of the weight would be placed on my husband and I didn’t want that. I didn’t want to put my family in a position where we would have to struggle (I’ve been doing that my whole life and am pretty much over it). But I couldn’t stand to be disobedient, so I did what God said. At first things were looking good. Someone had donated a few hundred dollars to the business, I was getting a lot of sales and new customers, companies were purchasing ad space, etc. I felt like I could finally take a breath. But in the blink of an eye that was over. Things started going downhill…and fast. I know this post doesn’t seem too encouraging, but I don’t think that people share the “in the storm” experiences until after they are over and not while they are happening. I am in the mist of “feeling” lost. I know that I am not because I am following the Lord and He is the light to my path. Though I’m not familiar with the territory that I am currently in, I know God will never leave me nor forsake me and that He has the blueprint so I’m good!
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know what was going on and send some encouragement if like me, you find yourself in a place that doesn’t feel so great. We must continue to trust in God and keep our faith. The word says all we have to have is faith the size of a mustard seed. And as you can see from the picture above a mustard seed if fairly small.
Be sure to comment below if you feel stressed, fed up, or like you want to quit so I can pray for/with you.
And send up a prayer for me as well.
As always, stay encouraged,
Galatians 6:9 (NIV) Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
