Okay, first I would like to welcome you back to the second season of “As My World Turns.” I appreciate all of you who have been following my journey blog since last year. Well, let me tell you. Ever since the beginning of 2016, I have been thinking about the next step in my life. I had been feeling like I haven’t been doing enough, especially spiritually. I just knew that there had to be more. Yes, I have my nonprofit and was working it around a certain schedule, but it just wasn’t enough. I just wanted more.
So, from May to July I begin praying and seeking God for some answers and guidance. I had already made up in my mind that I would not be at my current place of employment when August came back around. I wasn’t sure where I would be, but I didn’t want to spend another school year there. When July arrived I started preparing myself for the big jump. I was about to make the decision to leave Francis Marion University. I was so nervous and afraid about making the decision, but I knew if I didn’t do it, I would change my mind about the whole thing. So I braced myself, closed my eyes, and jumped. I took the leap. I quit my job to pursue my purpose, passion and dream. I still can’t believe I did it. What I do believe is that GOD will take care of me. I admit that I don’t have all of the resources to do everything that I want to do, but GOD will provide. I’m not afraid, but I am nervous. My faith has really been increased and now I know it’s about to be tested as well. I’m up for the challenge. I’ve had many confirmations about my decision and have been encouraged through God’s word from the many lessons of trust, faith and obedience. I’m determined to fulfill my purpose. I now wake up in the morning and prepare to work at my office. I’m launching a new program called The Butterfly Effect Mentoring Program, I’m re-launching my 8 Step Transformation Program and turning it into a workbook, and I’m working on my first book which I hope to have completed by the end of the year. (I would love to release it for my 30th birthday).
Although all of this is new to me, I still trust GOD. I don’t have the funds I need, but I trust GOD. I still have bills, but I trust GOD. I’m not sure where the funds will come from, but I trust GOD. More than anything, I’m extremely happy to be working my organization and ministry full time. We only have one life to live, and I plan to live mine to the fullest while fulfilling my purpose. Everything I do, it’s not for me. It’s for GOD, and it’s to help others. I’m not trying to make the most money or become famous from the work I do. I just want to transform minds and lives with the help of GOD, and I know I can. For the first time I believe in myself and I trust GOD with my whole heart, mind and soul. I know my story will help someone. I know my program will benefit someone. I don’t care if it’s only one girl I help; I’m still going to do it to the best of my ability.
Until next week!
