God doesn’t call the equipped. He equips the called. This statement has really been one to stick out to me for the last few weeks. It has resounded in different ways, in not so many words, through bible study, in prayer, conversation with others and in actual happenings in my life.
If you know me, you know that I am a Christian, and cannot live a day of my life without the Word of the Lord, present in some way. Whether or not you have the same belief system as I do- I do believe that this can apply to everyone.
So often, we think- “ I cannot do that” “ I’m not ready”, and faith tells us that we absolutely CAN do that thing that we have been putting off or holding back from. We are human and it is so easy to say-
I WILL NEVER- or
IM PLANNING TO
These things have been happening in my life all too often lately, and the things I said I would never do- are things that are happening. Things I didn’t believe could be so- are taking place. I JUST HAD TO GET OUT OF MY OWN WAY! Wow! As I am writing this , I am literally thinking “ I still need to be taking my own advice.” Anyone ever been there?!
For example, when I started with Young Living- I said to my friend, who helped me get started- I WILL NEVER SELL THAT. Look at God. Not only am I sharing and selling these products with and to the people I love most and everyone I meet, it is now my sole source of income, allowing me to contribute to my household every month. Am I making millions, no- but I am keeping steady and seeing growth, better than where I was when I first started a little over a year ago. All it takes is the first step. I am home as I finish up my PhD, therefore getting to spend more time with my family- and have a bit more flexible schedule to explore and prayerfully take on other opportunities that would allow me to continue this lifestyle that I didn’t know I would need and love so much (God knew!)
God shows up and shows out, yall- when we let Him. All we have to do is say YES! He’s already worked it out for our good. SAY yes to the things you never saw yourself doing, and the places you never saw yourself going. Gods plan is always better than ours. We just have to answer the call.
