I am driving through Texas, contemplating my move from California to Texas, questioning whether or not this will be a good idea for my family and I. I started to feel anxious and worried. But I knew that wasn’t’ what God wanted to me feed into. In that moment, God spoke to my heart and reminded me that his plans for my life are always good.
I realized that the fight against our thoughts is not with people or what people have done to us or say about us. Our fight is with fear, doubt & discouragement. There are days when I question if what I am doing with my life really a part of God’s plan for my life? I constantly ask God for signs and wonders for his confirmation, like its just going to fall out of the sky.
To be honest I think about whether or not I’m doing the right thing and making the right choices all the time. But every time I question God and his will, his still voice tells me to trust him. Do not fear. Just go, I am with you with every step you take. I am reminded that every detail of my life is all a part of the bigger picture. It’s a part of his mater plan. Thinking about the unknown can cripple us and make us fear the unknown, but when we remember God loves us and has plans for our life that are for good, we shouldn't feel that way.
I did not always move in faith. I use to allow fear, discouragement doubt, and intimidations dictate my decisions. To be quite honest, ever since I started Inspire Dope, my faith has truly stretched and grown! I can’t tell you enough how important it is to step out in faith! I would have never thought within 6 months of starting Inspire Dope that I would have been asked to do POP UP SHOPS & speaking engagements, nor have mega influencers love my stuff and want to promote it on their social media, and nonetheless, people actually love and buy my stuff. (but for real, it wasn’t sure I literally took a chance)
NEVER EVER DID I EVER THINK ANY OF IT WOULD HAPPEN! But it did. All because I decided to trust God and move in FAITH. Not knowing the outcome is scary, but trusting GOD is totally worth it!!! I don’t know what it is that you may be facing that feels like fear or doubt or discouragement, but I do know that I can share what I have overcome and hope it will encourage your faith in God!
