Released


It wasn't that long ago when I shut my office door and dropped to my knees. Tears streaming down my face.
I had only been in the office for 30 minutes. Boy, was my day off to a great start.

No. There was no family emergency.
No. I did not receive a negative report from a doctor.
No. My protective, blue nosed pit was not harmed.
I was simply in a work environment that was no longer healthy for me.

I felt stuck. I felt broken. I felt empty.
How much more could I endure? There was no way out. I prayed that God would release me.
I asked God to give me strength. I asked him to keep me covered. I prayed that God would restore me.
My confidence was shaken. My passion was stifled. I was on life’s hampster wheel. I was going in circles
but making absolutely no progress. I felt like I was always wrong. I felt like I was often judged. My voice
was not heard. I felt unqualified.

I made it through that day. And then the next day. I learned to take each day, one day at a time.
It was not easy but I made it. Day by day, piece by piece, I began to see things shift in my life.

Then, it happened.
RELEASE

I had to make the decision to release some things in my life. I had to make the decision to let go.
I had to make the decision to follow 2 Corinthians 5:7: For we walk by faith, not by sight.

What things, people, or circumstances are you willing to release in order to walk into your destiny?

I'd love to use my experiences to encourage you and empower you along your journey. Check out this
video on how I hope to do just that:

March Madness - Day 5

My marriage is important because....
It's the thing that has kept me grounded for more than 10 years.

I had no idea what to expect regarding the Tallahassee heat and humidity. I quickly found out all about it since my move to Florida occurred during mid-summer. I landed in Florida on Sunday, July 16, 2006. Since I didn't start classes until August, I had a month or so to get acclimated to the area and to run errands. I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
Yes! This man spent 6 weeks alone in Tallahassee to set a foundati…
