06 Feb God Didn’t Call You to Sit This One Out
This week I had the pleasure of speaking to the Refreshed Women community. Refreshed Women is a group of women that meets on the first Thursday of every month to delve into topics like purpose, and calling, and passion.
I was grateful for the opportunity to share my story with them. My story isn’t unusual. It includes the same things your story does: fear, dreams, steps of faith, and people who’ve encouraged me.
I shared how my husband, Link, had encouraged me several years ago to step out in faith and start my own business. I felt my story resonated with many women in the room. I saw heads nodding in agreement. I took the step and was so glad I did.
The one thing I wanted to make sure every woman heard if they heard nothing else I said that day, was “God didn’t call you to sit this one out.” It’s so important we get that. It doesn’t matter what it is we feel we’re called to do. God has a plan and a purpose for all of us. And, he doesn’t skimp on the energy, resources, and people we need to achieve that purpose. All we need to do is believe it. And then STEP OUT like we believe the God of the universe has our back. I am proof of that.
Are you sitting this one out? If so, what would stepping out and trusting God look like for you?
