Just Go With It (Part 1)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know I'm back on that "ghost mode" again, but let me tell you, LIFE HAS BEEN CRAZY!!! Last time we talked, my dad had just passed and my life was in a full tornado. I can't even begin to explain the myriad of emotions I've been battling daily. It's been so overwhelming.

I have come to tell you that God is STILL in the blessing business, despite what things make look like around. It is not easy to get back up and dust yourself off, but there is great reward in doing so. I don't even know where to begin. Well, right before dad died, he transferred his favor & anointing on me in a double portion. I didn't understand its purpose until now. My life as of now has been a direct reflection of God's favor and all that daddy possessed when he was here.

Recently, a good girlfriend of mine called to ask me if I was taking any PR/Marketing clients. I was like, "Yeah, I guess, I really need something in my life right now." So, from that very moment, my life has been in fast forward. I was thinking this was some random person who needed a little help with a campaign, but turns out it was the TOP revenue generator for Ardyss International (The Body Magic producers). She just so happened to be one of the premiere platinum presidents that is running it! From that one phone call, I accepted the contract and immediately began traveling around the country. She asked me what I was making with my old job and said, " Honey I can match that any day and I am going to make you a very rich woman." I immediately began crying out to the Lord. It's amazing how God can elevate you when you merely elevate your level of thinking and expectation. Wait, it gets better. Not only was she willing to match my salary, but she asked if I had time for TWO more clients that are willing to pay the same. GO JESUS!!!!! Honey, you know they had to carry me out of this lady's office... lol.

I ended up meeting with the second client and discussed what he needed done. I went back to my room, prayed on it, and then within 30 minutes, I had completely revamped his program. I emailed it to him and he hit the FAN! He said I was the missing link that God sent to him. I was able to assemble a marketing design team here in Atlanta and bring his entire campaign to life in the matter of 3-4 days. Not only that, the campaign has already had 2,000 people sign up for it and his revenue has almost tripled. Man, this is amazing.

I say all of this to say that God is MORE than able to do all you can ever ask or think. But you have to ASK the right things while you THINK the right things. You have to believe that there is a way out. You have to understand that God is more than able. You have to understand that if God did it once, He is well equipped to handle it this time.

One of my (new) favorite scriptures has been revealed to me recently, it says in Psalms 84:11, that "For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly." The only part of this equation that is required of you is that you walk upright. Meaning keep living in God's will, do what is asked of you, and the rest shall be given unto you. It's all a matter of time.

Keep holding on and believing. God can do it. I'm a living witness! In spite of all I've been through, I've kept pressing and it has made all the difference.

I'm humbled ....
