Yesterday i received such a beautiful, humbling email from someone who was in such a similar situation as me, it's crazy that she found me! She knows God is calling her to do something more, to have her own business and she feels her spirit is breaking in the current situation. couldn't have hit closer to home.
i'm sharing this because it once again confirmed that i'm doing what God has called me to do. Before i quit my job at the chapel, i wanted to make sure it's what God was really leading me to do, and not just what i thought was right. i had days where i thought it was in the plans, and days where i wasn't sure i would succeed. I still have those days, but on days where i doubted, God would confirm it for me. I'd get a letter from someone who loved their photos, i'd get a photo session, something that let me know it was going to be okay, and it's what i needed to do.
Now what i have realized where i am, is exactly where i should be. Even if it doesn't turn out exactly how i imagine, i know God is using this time to prepare me for what He wants for me. It's a scary place being on my own not knowing exactly what's going to happen. I think God is using that to depend on Him more and less on me.
I'm so thankful to have a supportive husband that i'm able to start my dream business and understands it's been on my heart to do this for a while.
interestingly enough my devotional for today contained this verse. " The Lord our God said to us in Horeb, you have dwelt long enough on this mountain... Behold, i have set the land before you; go in and take possession of the land which the Lord swore to your fathers." Deut. 1:6 --- for me today, this passage is saying to go ahead with the plans, because i did dwell on them, i did pray about it. i thought it was just a perfect verse today!
So where do you want to be? Where do you feel God is guiding you? And are you ready to take that leap and come from the mountain and take possession what the Lord has set in front of you?
p.s. they might hate me but i get to see my lovely friends more now. goofiness and all. one of the many blessings.
