When I started this website I wanted to give people a safe haven, a place where they can come and be themselves without the fear of judgement. Once I started I had no idea how hard it was to stay active with the website. I am currently a full time student, I have a full time job, and I am pretty active in my church and community. I did not realize I had a plate full until I started to fell unmotivated with everything. I was working myself so hard, my body had to completed give out for me to sit down. During my time of resting, I started to think I was not cut out to be responsible for motivating and pushing so many people to their full potential.
I began to think of all the flaws that I had, and I started telling myself you are just another person, you cannot possibly change a person life. I begin battling with myself to shut the website down. It was not until I sat myself down and read Adrianna Latrice book, “Follow the Call.” This book shares the authors personal moments and how God shaped and mold her to her calling. When I first opened the book she wrote to me, “Keep allowing God to complete the work he’s started in you.” Just from that I began to find peace within myself and realize that God has giving me calling that I was more than qualified for.
The book begins to share the importance of listening to God and to follow the call that he has on your life. This book gave me so much confirmation on not only believing what God has for me, but to keep pushing and walking in the path that he has designed for me. “For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable,” Romans 11:29. If God has put something in your heart, do it! Plant that seed and watch it grow abundantly. There will be times of fear and doubt but do not give up, by God’s grace he will not let you. It’s amazing how just two sentences gave me confirmation to keep going, to keep sharing my truth and encouraging others to do the same.
I want to leave this quote from her book in hopes that it will give you hope to pursue your calling. “People will see greatness in you that you won’t be able (at first) to see in yourself, and that’s natural. But receive their words of encouragement and their confirming prophesies openly, because God will do amazing things through you!”
