Hold on for the Ride!

  Hold on for the Ride!

Have you ever had times when it just seemed as though you were grinding away at your purpose, but still you didn’t feel as though you were making progress? Do you know that it is not how quickly we make progress but rather the progress we’ve made that counts……….

This year has been a huge stretch for me in so many ways. I’ve had to learn how to hold on for the ride, rather than try to drive everything myself! Maybe that sounds foreign to you, and just a heads up, from someone who has had to learn to do it, it feels foreign as well. However, I am a Christian Author, and in order for me to fulfill my purpose of what my Father wanted to do with my books, I had to have a change of mind! Because I have, it is amazing what I have accomplished through Him. I give God all glory for the great things He has done!

Up until this past year, I thought I was to write and publish books as I already had 5 books published. Which I am to do, however, God wanted me to think bigger and higher and let Him out of the little box that my thinking kept Him in! Sometimes, God will use other people to help you to think differently, which is what happened to me. This is why I am writing to you. Maybe again like me you are grinding away at your purpose, however you know there is more that the Lord wants to do with it. You just do not understand it all. May I suggest, just ask Him to be the driver of your purpose. Simply hold on for the ride! So if He created you and I, and placed within us our purpose, then it is logically sound thinking to simply let Him drive it where He wants to take it and you and I simply obey when He shows us what to do, right?

This is a true testimony of God’s ability to help me when I had finally had the mind shift that I wasn’t the creator of my purpose, God was. ALL of the following happened within a year because I simply got into position and co-labored with God, to do my purpose. I am blown away at the progress I’ve made in just one year. On August 15, 2016, I published a book entitled 5 Steps to Birthing Your Dream a Spiritual Midwife’s Manual! That book went #1 on Amazon’s Bestselling List. Because God had divinely set me up and taught me how to do it! I got in line with what God had for me and just simply done one thing at a time that He walked me through. This is not to brag on myself or pat myself on the back, but again to simply give Glory to God! In the past year I’ve had 2 of my published books to go #1 Bestselling, I’ve created a complete Steps to Birthing Your Dream Video Program, I really took on the role of being a Spiritual Midwife to others to help them birth their dreams and purpose by doing a Private Membership Group Coaching. I will launch another brand new book 7 Keys to Put Your Life in Drive by the end of this month if all goes well, and have already created the videos for a new Video Program with this new book. I have done Webinars, Facebook Live, Conference Calls and helped others to become #1 Bestselling Authors! God is amazing when you simply hold on for the ride! He is why I’ve made huge strides in my purpose all of this has come to fruition this year. It has been such a joyous and adventurous ride, and I want to encourage you! Will you let God be the driver of your purpose and simply hold on for the ride?

    […] GET YOUR FREE BLUEPRINT NOW! If I am talking to you, you know exactly what I mean. Are you that writer that has words such as poems, songs, stories or even treasured recipes poured out of your soul into word documents or handwritten in spiral notebooks like I was and did and seriously just don’t know what to do with them? Does this sound like you? Are you saying, How did she know that? My answer is it takes one to know one! I was once a secret writer that had notebooks and computer documents full of songs, poems, and stories. One day I realized that I had not been given this talent and gift to keep it hidden away. I decided to be brave and began seeking out publishers! Yes I found one and published my first two books and paid lots and lots of money to do it! However, I had many more books, and knew I had to find another way that wasn’t draining my bank account. Self-Publishing was my blessing and answer! It may be your answer too, if You no longer want to wish or keep your gifts and talents hidden away! GET YOUR FREE BLUEPRINT NOW! […]
