Faith and action work together, and I am amazed at the different opportunities I have had since I got out of bed and got back to work. I am calling them Godpportunities. I recently had a defining moment, it was a moment when I experienced faith and action merging.
I have been thinking a lot about direction, and specifically the direction JostWrite was to go. As I thought deeply about how to move forward, I decided to sit with a business consultant to talk through the vision and ideas I have for myself, my life and my small business. I was also feeling stuck and bored, and paying a consultant was the option for me to narrow down direction and action steps. I had a consultant picked out, but I kept having that nudge in my spirit to wait. The nudge I always get from God to hold back, wait, hold on or do nothing. The nudge to "Be Still."
It was a frustrating season of yielding to the instinct to wait while also knowing that definition and a new direction was needed for JostWrite. A season of wait can be annoying especially when you know what you want to do and should do.
Our conversation was for me more than a moment of peace or clarity. It also took me back to a direction I knew JostWrite was called to go. The direction he led me to was a direction I had backed out of, because it was not what I wanted to do, it was not my writing passion and it was not what I liked or was comfortable doing. Talking with Mr. Edmond was like hearing everything I already knew was my direction, but had ignored because it was not my comfort zone. Whatever happened to risk and thinking long-term? I was just thinking of sticking to my comfort zone.
After thinking through a lot, I am making a 180 degrees turn around back to a path I committed to earlier in this journey but abandoned out of fear and insecurity.
Connecting with him is one of the Godpportunities in my personal desert. That been said, I am working on re-branding the direction for JostWrite, and I know I have been saying this for a while, but it is time to move from point A to point B.
In other news, I am meeting with a small business today through the non-profit I signed on as a client two weeks ago. Another Godopportunity that was birthed because I got to work on the wings of faith.
Beloved, You are Loved Absolutely!
