Have you ever asked God for change, and he pushes you to change things for yourself?
April 29th, 2016. A day I'll never forget, and two weeks after the day I told God that I'm content with his direction. I walked away from my job, shifted my crown, and here I am. A 24 year-old entrepreneur saying "YES!" to my calling and accepting what the God of the universe has given me.
If I may be transparent, I want to say that I had the most amazing amount of peace the day I turned my notice in. However, fear naturally kicked in after I clocked out for the last time. Walking away from something I thought I needed was the moment I began to trust God more. Although I walked away by stepping out on faith, I was still afraid; I was nervous that people would judge me, I would lose what I've worked hard for, but one day something happened. I realized that in order for me to encourage others to change their atmosphere, I had to change my mine first.
I've always been a very active and sociable person. I would obligate myself to things that aren't meant for me. My life became so busy with things that I had to do, because others wanted me to, that I lost myself. I felt like I had to be everywhere for everyone and everything for them. Now, I have more time to focus on ElonWick. How? I took a step back to breathe, find myself, and to become a better me. My atmosphere changed the day I said "Yes" to God's will. My atmosphere when I realized that my gift will make room for me. My atmosphere changed when I learned to detox myself from things that do not align with my destiny, my business, or my heart. I'm so grateful for these moments.
Now, I'm confident of these things: THIS is what having faith looks like. THIS is what obedience looks like. THIS is what surrendering, submitting, and succeeding looks like. I did it, and so can you. I pray that you're not only able to find your purpose, but you change your atmosphere so the vision may be clear.
Love & Candlelight,
