I have been going through a season of being tired. That is not the norm for me, so I have been quiet and pondering every action beforehand. Yesterday, I woke up sick, which never happens. This tells me a breakthrough is coming.
Isn’t that how it happens? We give and give until we wear ourselves out and then become weary in well doing?
In a high tech world where everything happens instantly, this is not easy. Everything I lay my hand to, I give it one year. If I’m on the right path, God will show me the fruits of my labor along the way. If there is no fruit, it’s time to revisit the mission. I don’t believe in trying to fit a square peg into a round hole anymore.
My Letitgocoach Facebook page is a great example. I began that journey, last June, and from June until December 2014, I posted 52 times. That’s not a lot, right? You see, I was testing the waters just to see if it would take off and encourage people. That was all I wanted was to give people a safe place to come and be refreshed.
This year, from January 2015, up until now, I have posted 10 times that amount. God showed me that what I was doing was good and I had a couple of hundred likes for a long time. It slowly began to grow in more likes. I was reaching a few more people each week and encouraging them along their journey. I thought it would be fabulous to hit 1,000 likes.
The page surpassed 1,000 likes. God gave me 1,500 instead of my 1,000, and it’s growing daily. This is a dream come true for me! To reach out and hug people virtually everyday and let them know, a beautiful life is waiting for them. To provide a place where they know they can come on a consistent basis and see beauty. That is what it’s all about.
Let me encourage you today, if you are laying your hand to something and you are growing weary, do not give up! Being tired, or getting sick is that stinkin’ devils way of making you think you need a break. I was tempted to take a week off, and God knows my heart. That is exactly when the Facebook page started encouraging more people. It started showing more activity and then I knew, I could not faint. I was exactly where I needed to be and so are you.
