Live In Your Purpose

Nycia_Interior_Photos-52.jpeg

I will start off by saying you are unique to you, you are made with a purpose.  SO BE YOU and go live in your purpose!

All things are done according to God’s plan and decision; and God chose us to be his own people in union with Christ because of his own purpose, based on what he had decided from the very beginning. Ephesians 1:11

Do you find yourself asking these questions?

-What is my purpose? 

- I think I know what my purpose is, but I don’t know how to get started?

You may be thinking okay that’s true that’s me, I always ask those questions and I always come up short.

 Well, my sister…………

If you are not spending time with God and seeking answers. - you are going to continue to come up short

 If you are not stepping out and walking in complete faith and obedience-You are going to continue to come up short

If you are not letting, go of your past in order to move forward-You are going to continue to come up short

If you are constantly comparing your journey to everyone around you-You are going to come up short.

  Stop trying to figure out your purpose through your friends and what they are doing

 It’s really not about finding your purpose its about living each season to the fullest and letting the process prepare you for your purpose.  Every step of the journey is a part of the process.  Wake up each morning and know you have something to offer this world and know that God created you for great things and see yourself as a Light. That’s a start. 

5 Ways to Live in Purpose:

Love Yourself- It all starts with knowing your worth and loving who God made you to be

Prayer- Pray Often, pray for direction, pray over your daily list, pray over your every move.

Spend time with God- (Intimacy with God and spending time in the word is crucial) you can listen and be obedient when you are connected

Dream- Allow yourself to dream, and be in it

Encourage Everyone around you- (even if it’s just a simple smile)

Love this quote:

Forget about the fast lane. If you really want to fly, harness your power to your passion. Honor your calling. Everybody has one. Trust your heart, and success will come to you.

– Oprah Winfrey

Stick With It

Five years ago, I felt like my identity was centered around me and my career “Nece” the wedding planner, that was my life and God nicely tossed that to the side and brought me to a place of building and when I say building, I was thinking building tables-scapes? I’m good at that.  No God said building a ministry- starting a platform to allow women like myself to shine for him and pursue a deeper side of their purpose. 

It wasn’t easy ladies; It wasn’t easy to say okay God I’ll do it and I’ll be great at it.  My response to him in the beginning was okay Lord, but I don’t know what I’m doing, I’m a wedding planner, I’m not a builder of dreams and definitely not good at speaking good over myself so how can I speak greatness over others.   But you know what ladies, God knows what we are capable of and he equips us to do all that he asks us to do.

Your purpose is all wrapped up in that thing that is in your Heart                                                                 

Ask yourself these questions. What I’m I suppose to be doing? Why I’m I not doing it? What did I start and now I’m stuck?  What made me start it in the first place?  

Also be reminded that sometimes we get into things that are not for us… Take a pause and really look at yourself in the mirror. Is it something you dreamed of doing since a child?  Are you picking it up because your friend is doing it and she’s good at it?  Don’t be a part of the Comparison game.

Fear will set in when you figure that thing out, but these 4 things below will help you to stick with it..

Pray

Dream

Have Faith

Find Your Tribe - People that speak positive over your life and push you out of your comfort zone.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

When we have something that we want to pursue, it has to have some sort of emotion that it puts out, Whether its financial fulfillment, whether it makes you smile from ear to ear when you think about it. Or just that deep down in the gut feeling of happiness when you think about it? 

Now, you have all the emotions and fru fru feels about that thing.  So why aren’t you doing it? Or why aren’t you sticking with it?

 Who wants to look back and say I wish I would’ve, I should’ve because I could’ve?

 Now what does God think of us sticking with it.  How does he see you in your purpose?    

—————-VERSES——————

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: Ecclesiastes 3:1

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Now ask yourself:  Where do you see yourself in the next 2 years?

Whatever God has put in your heart to do, go do that thing with big faith knowing he has your back and stick with it.. Even if doesn’t make sense to people around you, even if you don’t feel equipped do it anyway!

She Blooms Pop-Up at Erin Condren

The Power Of Prayer

I have come to realize that the more I pray the more I feel at peace in my life. No matter, how things seem around me, prayer brings a level of comfort and closeness to God in any situation, on any day. Prayer allows you to reset your thinking and open your mind to new fresh thoughts (POSITIVE vibes always please). Having a clear mind is a must when you are trying to stress less and not be distracted by the things around you on a daily, things that really don’t matter.

I recently had a conversation with a close friend about how its so easy to get caught up and lose sight on our walk; with social media, comparison and all the other junk that consumes us on a daily. I can say, that prayer and the word of God are two things that will keep you focused on the positive and ready to take on any attacks that the enemy will try to throw at you. We all need to find ourselves really clinging to God in a whole new way.

Starting Feb 1st I will be hosting a 15days of Prayer, each prayer will have a topic to pray over and a verse to hold onto for that day. As I dig deeper into my own relationship with God through prayer, I thought it would be a great idea to share the journey with you lovelies…

She Inspires Fall Brunch 2018

Finally finding time to reflect on our Fall 2018 Brunch, and it feels so good! Our fall brunch was one full of laughter, cries and a whole lot of encouragement. I found myself simply looking around at all the diversity in the room and being reminded that we all have a story and my story maybe different from yours, but we are designed with a purpose and we are all designed with endurance and we are all capable of creating and living out some amazing things, because God gave us purpose here on earth.

We gathered at The Grove on Brushy Creek, for the third year and it was beautiful.
