Believe Bigger

One year and two months ago I purchased a devotional entitled 100 Days of Believing Bigger by Marshawn Evans Daniels. At the time, I had no way of knowing that my life was about to take a drastic turn, but My Heavenly Daddy loves me too much to let something blindside me without some backup.

The devotion got me really thinking and stretching my faith. Right in time for a crisis. The crisis was awful, I felt like I lost so much and I couldn’t see why God did what He did…at the time. It wouldn’t make sense for almost six weeks. Six looooong weeks where I was stressed and stretched.

I had to take my Master level comp exam in a hotel ..on hotel wifi because of issues at my apartment. I lost the majority of my earthly possessions (literally 95%) of what I owned except for a few of my children’s toys and some clothing items… When I say it was awful. The stress that puts on the mind, body, soul AND one’s marriage is almost incomprehensible.

Now the season I find myself in now, isn’t that season, but…it’s been tough. People all around me are winning hunny and I am so proud and happy for them. We need a winning season in the midst of all that has been lost… and all the sadness. But it’s not my turn yet. I’m waiting. God has literally blocked any and Everything I’ve tried to do in this season.

I’ve been instructed to rest….rest is literally the opposite of what my finances and life look like right now😂😂 like it feels like I should be doing atleast 20 things to get my business (www.pivoting-with-purpose.com) on track, to save for the traveling we are gearing up to do and just overall goals. But…that’s not what I’ve been instructed to do. As a person I tend to lean heavily on the…

But…..yeah God said no my child let’s rest. I work really hard. I have a full-time job, three full time children, a stepson we have half the time, a new business, my husband is an entrepreneur…. We are BUSY. This month alone I’ve driven 1,400 miles… God was like girl don’t do it ..

My rest is me believing bigger in my God, knowing that He wants to take care of me. I have to be obedient in this season disobedience is too costly. The Scripture that has been so helpful is Proverbs 10:22

I think both versions speak to my current season. Whether your season is in the valley or the mountaintop, follow His promptings.
