Timing

I like to start my day off reflecting, planning, getting myself into a mindset that is ready to tackle the day. I read a daily bible devotional and then another daily devotional for entrepreneurs (Walk Through Fire). Most mornings the readings are good and I enjoy the messages. Then there are other mornings where the timing of these messages is perfect. They not only sync but they speak to a fear, doubt or question I’ve been having. They strike a nerve. Today was one of those days.

We have a couple of big ideas that we are working on launching by the start of next year. While I’m excited about them, I still have doubts and am running into stumbling blocks. It takes some of the wind out of my sails. Here were the messages this morning…

Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. 1Peter 4:11

I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat. Winston Churchill

This is me. For my ideas right now, I have only my blood, sweat and tears to offer. But that is what is needed to get them off the ground. And I think so many of us have doubts that we have a gift or that our gift is it truly worthy enough to pursue. This just isn’t true. What we need to realize is that what might seem minor or insignificant to you, may be largely instrumental in someone else’s life. There is a reason for the gifts we have. To not use them is being selfish.

My message to you. The big idea you have that is scaring you and giving you doubts but you can’t stop thinking about…Give it everything you’ve got. It is your gift you are supposed to share. Act on it. Have faith that everything will fall into place as they are supposed to.

  1. Haven’t you heard of vomit goals?? Those goals that scare you so much you feel like you might vomit?? We should always a few of those brewing. As for timeliness of messages, I truly believe God uses many ways to work in our lives, so there you have it. Keep smiling!

    • Lol! I hadn’t heard of vomit goals before but have definitely been experiencing them this year. Thanks for all your support Suzanne!

  2. This touched me so much. I’m just starting this thing I haven’t been able to stop thinking about since October!! I have labored, had sleepless nights, prayed and prayed, kept going, hit more roadblocks than you can imagine, had doubts I was doing the wrong thing, had victories I could only give credit to God for……and now I’ve had back surgery and feel totally out of control!!!! I’m so freaked out about my goals, but yet so confident. I needed this today…..thank you Christina….you are an inspiration to me!!

    • Awww! Thanks Donna! It’s a tough and scary road that we’re on but at least we know that we’re not alone. We have people we can lean on and know what we’re going through. You’re going to do great things!
