A Time to Be Still .....Upcoming Changes!
Follow my blog with Bloglovin Hello my lovely readers! I pray that you all are doing great this Wednesday. So I bet you are wondering what is going on? What happened to "2B2BS" hop? What does she mean about being still? Changes...what changes? Those have been questions that I have been asking myself for the last several months. To be honest with you all, when I first started blogging I was super excited about the world of blogging and how I could share all my thoughts, inspirations, encouragements, etc. However, I'm completely guilty of jumping in head first and taking on so much at one time and not truly reflecting on God's vision for my blog and his direction for my business. I wanted to be like other bloggers and host hops/linkups, offer giveaways, sponsorship program, etc. I found that I was becoming overwhelmed and not 100% sure if this was the direction I wanted or if I was just doing like everyone else. As I mentioned, for several months I have been contemplating over this matter and how to move forward. This Wednesday, I'm encouraging myself to trust God and be obedient to his word. Once again, God hit me in the face with his Word. Proverbs 19:21 states:
"Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
So clearly God's word revealed that I can have all the plans and desires that I want, but it is God's ultimate plan that will stand. With that being said, I realized that I need to get back to the basics and seek God's counsel first before I move forward with my plans. His word reveals that if I trust him 100% and not lean on my own understanding that he will direct my path. My sole heart's desire is to do his will and work! Where do I go from here? My goal and through God's directions are to use these next several weeks to be still and reflect on his word and receive his guidance. I do know for sure that he wants me to use my business/blog platforms to encourage others and to spread his word.
I pray that if you are like me and in the need of God's direction for a particular matter/situation.....stop and BE STILL!(Psalm 46:10) Reflect and ponder on Proverbs 19:21 and allow the Holy Spirit to direct you. Always remember that our plans may give good results, but God's plans gives us His Best! Please share and encourage others today as well! Thanks in advance for being so supportive during this period of stillness. I'm excited and anticipating the future and all the great plans that God has in store! Looking forward to updating you all soon!
