What do you tell yourself when you’re out of your element? Do you shut down? Do you let the fear keep you from moving? Or do you go with the flow because you are that free butterfly?
With all the new year resolutions we create, we can often feel overwhelmed with the thought of trying to do too many things at once. Think about it, you’re going to lose the weight, buy a new house AND start a new business. Ha, I’m overwhelmed just typing all that! Lol!
Seriously though, we make every attempt at change because it’s a new year, right? New year, new you they say! But, on the inside you’re scared because you are out of your element. You have SO many goals on your list but you don’t know where to begin. And because of that, you forget the list and continue on as usual. However, you have to keep going! The answer is getting still and finding direction before you get going.
Earlier this week, I had that feeling of overwhelm because I have so many desires and I don’t want to be out of alignment with God’s will for my life. So, what did I do? I got still! I packed up all the beads, put away all the notebooks of ideas and grabbed the journals and devotionals. I needed guidance and the only way to do that was to get still and connect with God. I knew that finding peace and comfort in our moments would give me the peace that I needed. Finding the hope in Him gives us the strength and comfort to keep moving!
Don’t stop dreaming! Don’t stop creating goals and desiring more! Just stop, get still and connect! Allow Him to give you the steps for each goal so that you are not overwhelmed with the steps that He is asking you to take. You got this, Beautiful!
