Hey y'all! I hope you just enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving celebrating with your loved ones and cherishing everything you have to be grateful for.
I love this time of year because it reminds me just how much I have to be thankful for. As we wrap up this #ThankfulThursday series, I thought there is no better way than to reflect on how grateful I am for my faith and my family.
Without the constant presence and support of these two things, my life and my business wouldn't be the same. I wouldn't be the same!
One of my favorite life verses is Jeremiah 29:11-13, and I love the Message translation:
"I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out - plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. When you call on me, when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen. When you come looking for me, you’ll find me. Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed."
As I've run my business these last few years, I have always found so much peace and reassurance in knowing that if God has planned for my business to succeed, there will be no stopping his plans.
No matter what challenges I might face, he says he will be faithful to take care of me and my business, and if the future I hope for aligns with his will, he plans to give that hoped for future to me. Isn't he such a good and amazing God?!
In addition to the support my faith provides in my life and business, my family has also been a rock for me. I've been so blessed to be married to a wonderful man who is always game for whatever crazy business ideas I have. I can't remember a time when he has told me "No, I don't think you should do that!"
At the end of the day, I believe that our relationship with God and our relationship with our families are the two most important things in life. Pursuing our dreams and creating success as we walk in God's will is a great and beautiful thing, but faith and family are the gifts that will sustain us when the going gets tough and make the sweet days even sweeter.
