2020 has been a challenging year for most of us. Challenges with work, relationships, family life and finances to name a few. It’s no secret that we’re living in unprecedented times, with so much uncertainty and doubt around us. It’s important now more than ever to be intentional with our time and prioritize our relationship with God.
Every morning for the past few weeks, I’ve been setting aside time with God to help me set my intentions for the day to help me be rooted in my purpose and the plan He has for me. This daily devotional time has helped me shift my perspective on what’s truly important in life- serving with a purpose that’s bigger than me.
In this season, I’ve been reminded that it’s never too late to start over and find your way back to Him. His grace is sufficient and unwavering and for that, I’m grateful!
We live in a world that can easily make us feel like we’re not enough, but that’s why it’s so important to know, who we are and who’s we are.
What I value most about social media is how it connects us to people from all over the world who we may have never met that we can learn from and connect with to inspire us, empower us and educate us. I’ve been following Sopha Rush, who is a firm believer in Christ, a wife, mother and powerful writer. She is the founder of Live Deeply Rooted, a sisterhood tribe that strives to be deeply rooted in God, in all areas of life. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably have seen me share her daily prayers and quotes frequently. A few months ago I purchased her 30 day beginner’s guide to intentional prayer and it was one of the best purchases I’ve made during this quarantine time.
The more consistent and obedient I became in seeking God and His word, the more clarity I gained in my life and the purpose He has for me. I’ve been praying for guidance, clarity and peace and recently I felt His grace wash over me and remove the blinders and the weight I’ve been carrying.
I wanted to share it with you to help you gain clarity on your purpose and conquer any doubts, insecurities or fears you may be feeling during this time.
Thank you for always reminding me that even through my insecurities and not feeling like I am enough, you have given me purpose. You told me I belong to you. I don’t have to fight to be loved and feel worthy because you made me belong. You’ve accepted me even in my weaknesses and helped me discover my strength. In Jesus name, Amen.
I know personally I haven’t felt like myself lately. I’ve been feeling anxious, fearful, uncertain and doubtful which has also made me question God rather than trust Him wholeheartedly. What’s so amazing about God is, He knows us better than we know our selves.
God allows us to experience the low points of life in order to teach us lessons that we couldn’t learn any other way.
Lord knows I can be stubborn and hard headed at times, but thankfully He loves me anyway.
I’m here to remind you that whatever you’re searching for, you don’t have to look any further. Whatever is weighing you down, holding you back or stifling your growth – it’s time to let it go!
Everything you go through helps you grow. Pay attention to the lesson.
God has your situation under control, stop worrying.
Even though 2020 has been a year filled with countless challenges, maybe 2020 is the year we all needed to be still, listen, and nourish the gifts He’s given us to serve with a purpose that’s bigger than us.
I want to leave you with a quote from one of my favorite mentors in my head, Elaine Welteroth.
“You have too much in you for God to reward a half-hearted pursuit.”
In this season, I am recommitting to prioritizing my relationship with God and investing in the unique gifts He’s given me to empower women to conquer from within and live a life full of purpose and passion.
As we prepare for a new week, what can you recommit yourself to?
