For the last few weeks I've been praying a very focused and earnest prayer. For doors to be opened... To find FAVOR in those that I come in contact with...  For the time and support from my family needed to devote to my business. For prosperity and success in my professional endeavors... The courage and confidence to stay focused and positive...

I had not put it all together until today but Little things HAVE BEEN HAPPENING over the last few days, actually the last week or so that have been (keeping me quite busy) stirring my soul.. 

New business opportunities... Meeting with like minded people.. Encouraging calls and conversations with friends...and even some blatant reminders that I can (get paid) be successful at my passions and pursuits..

And then THIS showed up in my inbox from my sister who (ALMOST NEVER) emails me. I didnt read it until just now, which i think was TOTALLY BY DESIGN:

Recently, there was an article that told how the wealthiest places on earth are not the oil fields of the Middle East nor the diamond mines of South Africa. The wealthiest places are the cemeteries. Buried in the ground are businesses that were never formed, songs that were never sung, books that were never written, potential that was never realized, and dreams that never came to pass.

Friend, don’t let that be you! Don’t go to your grave with your treasure still in you. Keep growing. Keep learning. Step out in faith and trust God. Bring forth the good treasure that God has placed within you. If you don’t know where to start, start by meditating on His Word. Let Him speak to your heart. Learn to hear His voice. Learn to obey quickly. Trust that He is good and will lead you in the path He has prepared for you.

Father, thank You for the good treasures You’ve deposited in me. I will be faithful to develop what You’ve entrusted to me. Help me, by Your Spirit, to stay close to You and follow Your leading every step of the way in Jesus’ name. Amen.

A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him...” (Matthew 12:35, NIV)

In a world full of so many talented and brilliant people, it can be hard to trust that YOU ALSO have something special and important to offer TOO. But YOU DO. I DO. 

I think its time for me to FIRE HER (the self sabotaging, negative thinking (that threatens to hold me back from the success He has already planned for my life) and GET TO WORK. Continue to press toward the mark....taking baby steps and believing that every step is leading toward AWESOME AND AMAZING things. And everyday I am GRATEFUL for the ability to even try.
