On Thursday, January the 11th I made a Journal entry I would love to share with you below:
This is life in His name and proclaiming His great name. Today, not much I had in mind to do was accomplished but towards the end, a connection by phone sparked much needed conversation surrounding an upcoming project and the work and commitment it will require to be successful in this industry. Mom brought to my attention recently a thought provoking notion, “It is not your hobby that will make room for you, it is your gift.” So, I have pondered what that really means. What is my gift? What is your gift?
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, A gift is defined as:
: a notable capacity, talent, or endowment
: something voluntarily transferred by one person to another without compensation
: the act, right, or power of giving
After much evaluation and thought on the value of a gift in its many facets, I am led to ask introspectively, am I using all my gifts to the Glory of Christ? Am I mastering and perfecting that which the Lord has given me or am I simply just using this gift or maintaining it?
I encourage others to live to their full potential, but am I taking that advice personally and living it? If not, how can I take action and move forward to align myself with the vision and mission of Christ’s plan for me and my family’s life? Some of you may know, this past holiday, my hubby and I released our first single written and produced by a dear friend of ours, Donnie Gholson. He had a desire to make this dream a reality for a while now and it finally happened. Visit the site with our music here & purchase this amazing project! We appreciate the incredibly encouraging feedback we have received so far from buyers, fans and supporters on how this single has blessed you! :*
On your way to making your dreams a reality, it is most rewarding to help others make their dreams come true. I don’t know what it is about turning a year older and wiser at a time when everyone is reminiscing and making resolutions (If that even happens anymore!) I can’t help but reflect and share your “Latter will be greater if you subscribe to greater in 2018.”
Choose to walk in purpose and surround yourself with those seeking greater purpose. Help others reach their goals, dream big dreams and take the steps it will take to get there with the help of the Lord. As a great friend recently reminded me, “Do not be discouraged…” when you hit a wall of disappointment, maybe experience a lack of support, slow success, fear and doubt which we all deal with. Remain consistent, keep growing and moving forward as you reach back to help others along the way. Choose to have the right people walk alongside you on the journey and most importantly trust God.
There are resources all around us and I am grateful for the ones God has sent my way so we can bless each other and help each other get there. I am ecstatic about the future and what it holds, simply because He lives and you are a part of it.
Featured on this entry are some key people who have worked diligently to make some major dreams happen:
The one and only Jennifer Mina-Photography
The one and only Jon-Joseph Nepaul-Composer and Producer for current EP Album to be released early spring.
The one and only Joshua Zant-Husband and constant supporter.
Love you all with greater purpose and prayer <3 It’s our year to live life colorfully and make our mark in a radiant way!
