It’s been a week of high emotion in this household! For those wondering, YES! Brody is back at home! 😂
My heart is still racing though, because as of yesterday, I made one of the scariest "clicks" of my mouse button that I have ever made. I booked a 3 story, 8 BR beach house that has 20 beds, gorgeous views and a gym (of course) for a retreat I am rewarding the top leaders of my team to attend in January 2019. 🤗💯🙌🏻 I’ve been inspired by Mark Batterson, who wrote Chase the Lion; which has (hands down) been my favorite read 📚this year......in a different kind of way than Girl, Wash Your Face..... Here is one of my (favorite) quotes in the book..... "What sets lion chasers apart isn't outcome. It's the courage to go after God sized dreams." OK-time to put what I read into action and not just think to myself- "wow- that's a really good quote...." This decision to host a retreat of this magnitude scares me to my core. ❓I am not sure if I will have enough people to fill this house.
❓ I am not sure if I will make the required income to pay for it.
❓ I do not necessarily feel equipped to lead them through a weekend of inspiration, encouragement and training.
But I do know this.....through lots of quiet time, prayer and discernment- God showed me this house..... "Here.....create lion chasers in this house.....help women learn what their individual purpose is in this house......use your God given bodies in this house to pour into each other and provide soul food.........in this house, GO and be Faithfully Fit....." So with great clarity, I pushed doubt aside; swallowed hard and with a racing heart beat I clicked "submit payment." I am going after this dream and it most certainly needs divine intervention, which is affirmation that this is a God sized dream. 👊🏻 "Don't let fear dictate your decisions. If your vision is God given, it will most definitely be beyond your ability and beyond your resources. The God who gives the vision is the same God who gives the provision." -Mark Batterson
Get out there friends and go chase YOUR 🦁 lion!
