Beautiful Soul Sisters, first, give yourselves a pat on the back. Congratulations! I don't know what you've accomplished but I'm proud of you! Whatever your little victory was for the week-- Shoutout to you!
My little victory was that I submitted all 10,000 job/ program applications that I'd been putting off for months. I don't know what will come of the applications, but I'm finally learning to stop counting myself out. One of my mentors told me to stop making the decision for myself before there was ever a decision to be made. I didn't realize I had been doing that. You know, telling myself "you don't have that qualification", "you won't get it anyway", "you don't have that experience", etc. I didn't realize the damage I was doing to my inner- self. On the outside, I kept it together and kept it pushing but on the inside I was really tearing myself down. What good is that? How could I possibly expect someone else to see my worth if I didn't? Maybe that's why I haven't been seeing results-- wow that actually just occurred to me and I'm getting emotional as I type this :)
So. . . I'm going to stop being my own worst critic, I'm going to stop limiting myself, and I'm going to stop counting myself out and I will start letting go and letting God WORK and MOVE on my behalf-- I swear I tell somebody that piece of advice everyday but I don't listen to it myself.
I'm going to begin to cast all my anxiety on him because I know that he cares for me. I'm going to let Him work it out. I'm going to let God be God. I seem to lose track of that sometimes. I know I just need to be more diligent about seeking Him daily and not just when I'm writing or when I'm feeling lost.
I encourage you beautiful soul sisters, to remember whose you are. Your purpose is perfect even though sometimes your path seems purposeless. Trust God to fulfill every promise and every blessing. Trust God to go before you. Trust God for favor. Trust God for every everything that you need or lack. He wants you to have everything you desire. Of course, all of this is easier said than done and to do it is a daily struggle. Just wake up everyday and remind yourself that you've never become and God is always guiding you to continue becoming the virtuous woman He's called you to be.
