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:

A Small Tear

I could barely see. 
My eyes felt itchy and irritated. 
I thought I was tired from a full day of work. Sitting at a computer. Taking meetings with clients. Staff meetings. All the work of a typical Friday. But the day was not over. I still had an hour left in my two and a half hour drive down the two-lane, tree surrounded road to Tallahassee. 
I was rubbing my eyes and blinking so much to stop the itch. Nothing was working. Nothing was soothing me. 
I drove in discomfort as long as I could......then I reached my breaking point. 
When I arrived at a stopping point in my travels, I removed my contact lenses. Before I replaced the contacts with glasses, I took a look at the lenses. 
If only I would have recognized the signs sooner....
The left lens had a tear. 
Side note: The thing I have yet to grasp is how a contact lens that is inside the eye gets a tear without even being touched. If you can explain how this happens, feel free to drop the knowledge in the comment section.
