Leap of Faith
That's what this whole adventure has been. Every step of the way no matter how little has been a leap of faith. I've had a few opportunities come up over the last few weeks and I continue to debate whether or not to pursue them. It makes me so nervous to take on any more, but then I have to look at it as a leap of faith for this business. Every second of every day I'm a nervous wreck. How am I going to pay for this, how am I going to get all of these done, how am I going to grow my business, and most importantly when am I going to spend time with my family? All of these questions I constantly consider, it's so hard to turn it over to God and listen for His answer, but I know that's what I have to do no matter how hard it is. So with this in mind, I'm taking a leap of faith and going with my gut feeling, no matter what anyone else has to say. I heard a quote at my Women of Faith weekend that has stuck with me, it seems like it came at just the right moment. I believe it was Lucy Swindoll who was speaking of a friend of her's who at a very young age started a charity, and everyone kept asking him how he did it, how he made it a success at such a young age, his response, "because no one said I couldn't!" That's what I keep thinking, only in the reverse sense. Everyone keeps saying, "how are you doing this, you're crazy, or that's probably not a good idea", well I still keep going back to how I felt in the very beginning. God was speaking to me, I know it, and I need to remember that I'm doing this for a reason. A reason that only God knows. Someday it will all make sense, but until then I just have to continue to listen to Him and take that leap of faith!
