When going through transition, sometimes things don’t make sense to you because they all happen at once. This was especially the case for me this year. Have you ever heard of that song by Travis Greene called Intentional (“All things are working for my good cause he’s intentional”)?
Every setback and success is intentional. When I made the decision not to return to work full time after the birth of our daughter, I thought it was a setback. I heard God clearly tell me to pack up my things like I was never coming back, and that’s exactly what I did. Someone out there might be thinking I’m crazy doing that, but I wouldn’t be where I am now if I didn’t make that decision. I have seen every step of our daughter’s growth, I serve my husband whole-heartedly with joy and I have so much peace knowing that our daughter is safe.
Anyone out there knows that it takes a lot to say you’re going from being a two-income family to becoming a one-income family. It’s not easy! All I can say is that Faith is all I got. Faith is the only thing that will get you through it. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. I also know that my security is not in my job but in God, and I know he has a huge gift for me to open.
I encourage you to not be a slave at your job or to someone who happens to be your boss. God wants to liberate you to become your own boss and depend on him.
He is the author and finisher of your faith, so why not trust him with everything you got? As for me, I’m liberated to become my own boss. I inspire greatness everywhere I go, not just when I’m home. I write, I counsel people going through all phases of life, and I inspire people according to my story. If you are not happy where you are right now and you feel like you need to make a change to achieve your dreams, I encourage you to pray about it first and ask for God’s clear direction. When you feel in your heart you know what God is saying, make that jump and don’t look back.
Don’t hesitate or procrastinate. Just do it and then watch how you will experience positive changes in your life. If you can do that, trust me, you are one step closer to that dream job, that financial freedom, that perfect weight you’ve always wanted, that good skin or good health you’ve always admired. God wants the best for you and you are his sons and daughters. Poverty should not be in your vocabulary. I encourage you to not let your job determine your financial status in life. Let God be God.
