Did you know that EVERY time I write a post or send an email or promote a service I hear this in my head:
"Nobody cares what you have to say"
"Stop bothering people"
"What you offer is not worth paying for"
"Stop trying to be successful"
"Nobody is going to read this"
Does that ever happen to you??? When we walk in the things that God has called us to, the enemy starts his strategic attack to derail and distract us. His lies are slightly different for each person because he wants to say the perfect thing to slow you down and keep you from God's plans for you.
At some point, you have to get good at destroying the lies and filling your mind with God's voice and truth. If you ever want to accomplish anything great, you will have to FIGHT the lies. There is no way around that.
I am thankful for my friends who constantly fight the lies and walk in God's purposes for them. I want to give a shout out to a few of them and I hope this inspires you!
Dwight-He would always say "I need to write a book one day..." and then one day he threw away all his excuses and actually did it!! He is encouraging black boys everywhere with his new children's book "Black Boy Soar".
Cara-Despite life challenges and heart break, she has not only managed to find love again but she has started her own retreat business. She hosts retreats in Morocco, Greece, Italy, Turkey and Israel all for God's glory. https://www.lifewithim.com/
Jacqulyn-Even with health challenges, this woman has founded an incredible organization called Christian Children's Empowerment. On top of that she has written several books and continues to give back.
Joanna-This woman is on FIRE for God and he gave her the courage to start her own baking business. Her cupcakes are so good that grocery stores place orders for them! https://www.thekindcake.com/
Cameo-One of the most determined women that I have met! She is an artist, fashionista, entrepreneur and soon to be author! She uses her gifts and talents to build up girls of all nationalities. https://wearefawm.com/
One thing that ALL these people have in common is that they have heard the lies...at times they may have listened to them but they pushed through with God's truth and walked in the purposes that He had for them.
It's your turn. Your turn to tune out the lies, tune into God's truth and walk into his purpose for this season of your life!!
