Lately though I've noticed the shift.
The shift to focusing on things that God would rather have me leave up to Him.
See I'm not a paper goal kinda girl.
I've written out goals on paper before to only achieve a few of them and then have the paper wind up in a little corner in one of my dresser drawers.
Matter of fact I have about 50 unfinished things that I wrote down and I don't even feel guilty that I haven't looked at the paper in months.
However, I am a think of something and gotta do it kinda girl.
A idea pops in my mind at the most inconvenient times. God help me please!
Church. Driving. Grocery store. Shower. Cooking. You name it and during the middle of it I've came up with a light bulb idea.
I'm rash with decision making and I have impulse issues big time.
Matter of fact this post was impulsive and I'll tell you why.
First of all, I know that thinking will hinder me far more than just leaving my success in God's hands.
For the last few months I've been mico-managing my marketing plans and everything only to find myself 7 days into this month and not even 25 percent into my goal. Quite frankly I'm disheartened by it but then I remember the reason why I said I wanted to do this in the first place.
It was never supposed to be about me. It was always supposed to be about God. About blessing people. About creating artful reminders of God's promises. About writing about God's wonderful promises.
It was never supposed to be about me tripping because I haven't neared my "sales goal" (and I use that term very loosely because it's not a goal on paper...)
"Latoya Monique Designs reminds me that God is faithful. LMD truly understands the promises that are shared through the talents only God can bless one with. Everything LMD stands for and does is all for the glory of God."I don't want my business to glorify me. Neither do I want to glorify my business.
LMD exists to glorify God, plain and simple.
Do any of you struggle with letting things go? Do share!
