As I sit here and type this post, I am trying to figure out where September went. It flew by, just like I said it would. In less than 3 weeks, I will be moving to Atlanta to further purse my writing career and in less than 2 weeks, I’ll be sending my final payment to my publisher, to complete the final stages on my first novel, “A Life Less Interrupted.” My fundraiser campaign is winding down with 50 more hours to go and I can’t even get my thoughts together because I am so overwhelmed at the love people have shown by contributing and/or sharing my campaign.
I meant every word that I said in my video about writing to inspire others to live their best life possible, but it never ceases to amaze me when someone tells me how much they enjoy reading my work. And that my campaign has inspired them as well. I believe that faith without works is dead and that God is constantly working things out in our favor, but we have to meet him half way. What’s the point in him showing us the promise land if we aren’t willing to make the journey to reach the place he’s already prepared for us? Even before he breathed life into our bodies, he’d planned every moment of our life right down to the moment we take our last breath. Now you tell me, how amazing is that?
I’ve received so many words of encouragement during my campaign and people have been speaking life into my dream from the moment I shared my aspirations with them and for that I am beyond thankful. Today my cousin told me that all I have to do is continue to keep God first, and enjoy the journey, because my success is already waiting for me. So with that being said, I know the best is yet to come!
Today I challenge you to step out on faith and do the one thing that you’ve always wanted to do, but were afraid to do it because of what people would say or think. The hardest part is always the first step. It won’t always be easy, and you may run into challenges but know that when you take that leap of faith, that God will always catch you.
As always, this is from my heart to yours.
