Do you recognize the steps you’ve already taken? Do you see how far you’ve already come?
I really do believe that when we are walking the path that God has set out for us, we attract the people, circumstances, and things we need to make to get closer to our God-given dreams.
Have you noticed the steps you’ve already taken?
- If you’ve done your 20 minutes, you’ve taken a step.
- If you’ve got some accountability in your life, you’ve taken a step.
- If you’ve read an article, you’ve taken a step.
- If you’ve looked for a class in the college catalog, you’ve taken a step.
And sometimes, God puts the steps right in front of you. Read this letter I received from a woman who attended one of my ME PROJECT presentations. God put the steps in front of her – but she’s the one who took them:
Kathi, when you came to our MOPS group last year and spoke to us, it was as if you were speaking directly to me. I believe it was your first time speaking on the “Me Project” and I have no doubt you did it because God told you someone needed to hear it. That someone was me! My husband work for the state of California and when he got hired into his department he had to go to the for training in Sacramento for six months. We are from Redding (northern Cali), all of our family lives up there, we had an 18 month old daughter and I was 4 months pregnant. After he was finished with training, we were assigned to an LA office so we had to leave everything that we knew and move eight hours away with a toddler and newborn, not knowing a single soul. It was tough, we made a lot of sacrifices and got through it, eventually being able to move to our current location. We’re halfway home! 🙂
My passion is photography. I’ve always loved it, I just never wanted to make the financial sacrifices for something that really only benefited me, not our family. When you spoke to us about the “Me Project”, you kept using photography as an example. If that wasn’t a big kick in the butt from God, I don’t know what is. For Christmas that year my wonderful husband bought me my camera. I have since started a photography business and am beyond happy. If it wasn’t for the support and encouragement from my husband to finally do something for myself I wouldn’t be here, but if it wasn’t for you, I never would have had the guts to try. I thank God for putting me in that MOPS group that day (it was my first day there) and having me hear your words and encouragement. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
So here is my question for you: What step have you already taken?
Post it in the comments, and on Monday I will be drawing a winner for each day of the week. Today’s winner will recieve:
