A Moment of Uncertainty

February 19, 2015




Question: What are you grateful for today?

I am grateful for the moment of uncertainty I just had. I found myself feeling emotional, talking to God, trying to understand his path for my life. I yearn for something greater, to be my own boss, to inspire people, and to trust my intuition and follow my heart. Well, given my current situation, I wasn't sure if that would happen. When money is tight and you have bills to pay the idea of taking a risk and investing into something not sure of where it will take you is frightening! I asked God to talk to me. I always ask, "What do you want me to do?" I have a desire to pursue one thing yet my situation says you can't take that risk. I am scared, I question what if I will fail, what if I wasted money I could have used on a bill, but then I listen to the desire I have deep down inside. It is is so hard to explain but that yearning and desire tells me this is not how your life will be. Working jobs I don't love just to make ends meet while wishing I could pursue something I have always wanted to... No that's not what you're going to do, but what do I do?


I had TD Jakes playing in the background. I was listening to one of his sermons and then I began to pray. I talked to God and asked for help and guidance. I asked God to talk back to me and let me know what direction I should go. I listened to TD Jake's talk about finding the courage to pursue your purpose (see video below) and that's when I decided to log onto my website to see if anyone has started my Gratitude Challenge. No one commented yet, however I saw something that shocked me! The amount of people that signed up for my website doubled in a day and I reached 7000 views on my YouTube video in 5 weeks. I yearn to simply create and inspire. Knowing that people are interested in my site and video means a lot. Do I give up now since no one has commented? NO... I reach out and continue to notify others about my challenge. I will continue to push for the very things I want in life trusting that God is getting ready to birth something so great and that my path is not the path of others. Moments when I am unsure God shows me something to ignite my motivation again. That is what I am grateful for today! Thank you to everyone that has signed up on my website! #AuthenticInspires
