Your Guide to Navigating New Territories and Growing Your Business

I know I'm not alone in my fear of the unknown. Recently I was on the phone with my mom and was telling her how exhausted I felt. I wasn't tired from lack of sleep. I was 'soul-tired'. Real Talk: I'm in this season of continuously taking myself out of my comfort zone, and doing new things. I want to share what God is teaching me as I lean into God and stop allowing excuses to hold me back. I am doubling down on vulnerability and leaning into the messy process of growth. And, I'm taking you along with me today in the blog!

Keep your eyes on Jesus. Not the waves, not the wind, not the people that are behind you or watching you, but your eyes straight on Jesus because he's directing your steps.

Authenticity in Weaknesses

There is so much power in allowing others to see our weaknesses. It's time to be authentic and embrace your weaknesses instead of hiding them. People are more inspired by genuine vulnerability than artificial perfection, as it creates a relatable connection. In doing so, we empower others to face their insecurities and pursue their dreams without fear. I struggle with seeking approval and perfectionism. From my point of view, it is crucial to be vulnerable and show our weaknesses in front of others, even if they may be uncomfortable. By doing so, you can let go of your fears and insecurities and trust in God's plan for your lives. This approach of embracing authenticity in our weaknesses can help build courage and resilience in the face of challenges.

Speaking at Church

I recently spoke at a church prayer meeting and shared about encountering trouble. I gave examples including conflict, anxiety, depression, and other hardships. Believe it or not, this is actually an invitation to spend more time with God through prayer. I challenged the audience to remember that no matter if it is big or small, God is there and cares. Use the hard times to fan the flame for Jesus and be reminded that the obstacles we face are often distractions from the enemy. He would prefer nothing more than for the trouble we face to derail us from our purpose and grow our relationship with God.
