Life is Good.
Five or six times per week, I run down to Myrtle Edwards Park and sit on MY rock. No seriously, one time, someone was sitting “close” to MY ROCK and I just about LOST my mind. It’s really mine! So, today, I was at my rock and the sun is beaming, it’s a brisk fall day, (in January) there were several joggers out, but it was quiet. Not as much OUT side, rather than inside. I find that its been really silent these days. I have been wondering what God is doing with me during this silent time. I have been BUSY with the re-branding/launching of TWO businesses.
On the outside, it looks pretty frantic at times. But, inside, there is a stillness. A quietness. A silent confidence that God is doing something here!
Everything that I thought was taken from me, is now returning in order and perfect timing and delivery. I used to think that I got the short end of the stick, but now I truly understand that MANS REJECTION IS GODS PROTECTION and when you allow God to work in your life, miracles truly do abound. I am thankful. Thankfulness for trials bring my three favorite “F’s” – FORGIVENESS, FAITH AND FAVOR! I was listening to Joel Osteen the other day, and he shared that from all accounts, the story of Job was a 9-month period! He went through ALL THAT in 9-months? But here is the kicker, you NEVER heard about him being in darkness after that. He was redeemed and his redemption was permanent. I am standing in THAT truth. This phase of abundance, joy and peace is permanent. No more roller coasters and drama for Michelle, No Indeed!
Its amazing that 1 year ago, my life was in darkness. Just ending a relationship and unsettled in myself; and NOW, I am actually generating business AS a Break-up Recovery COACH. Who Knew? Funny how God uses our brokenness or periods of pain and turn it into something uh-mazing that is beyond all imaginings.
7 months ago, I graduated with a Master’s in TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP without a plan of exactly how to use it. Now? I am opening the doors to a Leadership Program that is grounded in transforming girls’ leadership capacities. Who Knew?
It just seems that moving from faith to faith has carried me in such a graceful way to a place that is turning out to be magical and wonderful. So, it’s been pretty quiet, in here. I just move in expectancy of miracles and supernatural increase. I have a purpose, I have the plan, I have TRUTH, I have peace, all else will be added.
I guess if I could pray one thing for you it would be WISDOM that your trials are setting you up for a testimony. Your hurt is leading to your heaven. Your breakdown is the gateway to your breakthrough.
BELIEVE. TRUST. ACCEPT.
In love & light!
