Why are you striving?

Please follow and like us:2351kHas something ever resonated with you to such a degree that you couldn’t move away from it?  A sermon perhaps, maybe a song or scripture to which you couldn’t focus on anything else.  Lately, it’s been Tasha Cobbs Leonard “this is a move.”  That song has been on my mind for days.      The same thing has occurred in my daily time with God.  While reading…

Day 37 of #100daysoflesshustle

Please follow and like us:2351kIn the days since writing “why are you striving” I’ve been on a mad dash to pack up and leave one home while renovating a new home before moving in.  All by myself…  The job is daunting and some tasks are completely unfamiliar.  For example, flooring.   I had no idea how expensive that stuff can be.  The only thing worse than buying a car as an…

Day 31 of #100daysoflesshustle

Please follow and like us:2351kHave you ever been in an environment where you felt that you weren’t good enough?  Maybe you didn’t have the academic credentials or weren’t part of a sorority or fraternity.  Maybe you are part of a writing group and everyone is published except you and a few others.  Whatever the circumstance there are times when we feel that we don’t quite measure up. For years I…

Day 29 of #100daysoflesshustle

Please follow and like us:2351kThere are times when we remain in our comfort zones because of fear.  A dread of not being good enough or fearing failure.  Oddly enough there are some who fear succeeding in life.  The thought of being ostracized by those close to them and accused of being “too good for us now.” I often wonder how successful people handle their inner circle once they’ve obtained a…

Day 25 of #100daysoflesshustle

Please follow and like us:2351kToday’s reading of Proverbs 16 reminded me of my propensity to create lists.  I do this for every aspect of my life and quite frequently without thinking.  It’s become that much of a habit.  What began as a means of creating structure for each day has evolved into something I had not anticipated. After being blessed with the ability to leave (not fully retired) from my…

Day 22 of #100daysoflesshustle

Please follow and like us:2351kThe beauty of a spiritual gift is being reliant upon Christ for it to be lived out.  I am by nature a shy and introverted person.  By walking into a room, I am more likely to become uncomfortable unless I know someone who is already there.  And yet despite these things God has called me to minister to others.  John 15:5c became my go to verse…

Day 20 of #100daysoflesshustle

Please follow and like us:2351kYesterday I watched a live broadcast on Eric Thomas’s YouTube channel.  It was presented by Forbes and he spoke on the topic “healing from trauma.”  I’ve become angry at life after enduring much over the last several years and desire to move forward. I awakened this morning with ET’s motivational message on my heart.  I began asking myself a series of questions such as what happened…

Don’t give up on your God-given dream

Please follow and like us:2351kFor several months the Lord has dealt with me regarding faith and belief.  Faith to step outside of my comfort zone to accomplish my goals and belief in my spiritual gifts and natural abilities to reach my dream of writing full time.  It all seemed far fetched for a girl who grew up in a neighborhood deemed undesirable by many.  Being blessed with the ability to…

Day 17 of #100daysoflesshustle

Please follow and like us:2351kWalking by faith is often a challenge.  When God impressed it upon my heart that it was “time to leave” the neighborhood I where I currently am my first thought was whether I could afford a house in a different area or not. I’m sure that I am not the only woman (or man) who in the words of my mother has “champagne taste and Kool-Aid…
