I felt lost, far from any kind of purpose, and unsure how to climb out of the hole I’d found myself in.
My emotional state was crumbling. My marriage was on the rocks. My spiritual walk had slowed to a wounded crawl. I definitely wasn’t taking care the only body I’d been given for the journey.
I found myself in a hotel room, laying face down on a germy bedspread, begging God to help me find a way forward. I pulled myself up and felt as though my body was full of lead. I walked into the bathroom and looked into the mirror. I didn’t even recognize the person staring back at me- she was a hot mess.
I realized, as I stood frozen before my own reflection, that my very first step would require surrender… a laying down of my expectations, my pride, my control, and my heart. And that night, I began my real journey- the one of designing my life the way I wanted to live it. I decided then and there, whatever it took, however I had to press on, I would learn how to listen- to my own heart and to God’s leading. I would learn to let go of other people’s expectations for my life. I would pursue my purpose and reach my potential. I would step into my capacity, my courage, and my calling.
That was more than fifteen years ago. Like all great adventures, it’s had its peaks and valleys. Most importantly, I’ve learned that, through it all we are always expanding, because we are formed and loved by an infinitely good and abundant Creator.
These days I find myself living in the sweet spot. The sweet spot is sweet not because it lacks obstacles, but because obstacles take me deeper into the journey I’m created to be on. I’ve learned how to connect with and lead life from my Essence- that place where my unique spirit and God’s own are beautifully one.
I believe I can help you do the same and in much less time than it has taken me. That's why I started the Purpose Dweller community. So we, as professional women, can join together to embrace the the gifts and assignments given us!
I'd love to be a part of your journey!
