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:

Persevere Under Trial

I could hear the tears through the phone. 
It was test out day for the Lifeguard training class. There was  a written test as well as a water skills test. Both sections were required to be completed at an above average passage rate in order for the student to graduate to full lifeguard status. 
Not only were two questions missed on the written test but there was a deficiency in the water skills exam. 
Good news.....
There was an opportunity to retest on the following day. 😀
Bad news.....
The retest was a futile attempt. 😞
After missing the same two questions on the written portion, there was no opportunity or need to retest on the water skills.
I'm sure you can guess what happened next. Yep, there was the internal struggle of do I retake the entire course and test again OR do I cut my losses and move on?
Many of us end up at this crossroad. We get here when we feel like we have given our all to something and did not achieve the result we hoped for. Here are just a few examples: W…
