Almost a year ago I began my adventure as a small, self-employed business owner...I look back now at what seems like a lifetime ago and laugh at the fact that I had not a clue what I was doing (I mean let's face it, I still don't). My vision was big, my dreams were bigger and all I could do was stare at the infinite possibilities before me with excitement and oblivion. Life was full of opportunities but it was also full of doubt, anger, fear, and isolation. I look back on some of my posts like this one I can't help but revel at the goodness of God and all that He is capable of doing.
March 16th will mark one year since revealing Just US Creations and honestly, this dream has become bigger than I ever thought possible. What started out as a dream to create home decor and handcrafted signs has now become this booming desire to help create and design the perfect home and space for each individual person.
With a slightly new vision set in place, and a years worth of experience close to being under my belt I have felt a considerable push to revamp a couple key ingredients to my business. Although I know these changes need to occur in order to continue growing and prospering, just the mere thought of change happening has begun to make me feel doubt, fear, and anxiety... Am I making the right decision? Is this truly the direction I want to go in? What if it's a total flop?! Maybe I should stop while I'm ahead.
All of these are honest lies that I let creep in to the already paved destiny of the Father. And although I know them to be lies straight from the enemy himself I continue to let myself consider them and for what? So I can drain my strength and enthusiasm while I play devil's advocate for a couple minutes?
While I stand firm in my belief that these steps are the steps I need to take in order to reach the fullness that the Lord has for me, I continue to waiver. And if you feel as though you are struggling with the same thing in life, whatever your situation looks like, I want to encourage you that you are not alone. Each and every one of us has a purpose and a calling on our life...it's what we choose to do with it that will determine the amount of trust we put in our Father to come through.
I say this for me and for you...our Father never makes a promise He can't keep. What do you feel like is holding you back from pursuing your passions? Please comment below...I love interacting with my readers and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your vulnerability.
