Have you ever stopped and looked around only to find yourself where you don’t want to be?
I have. Recently my prayer for clarity brought me to remove myself from anything and everything I thought to be a distraction. For over a month I limited my internet interactions. And I attended only those meetings and events that required my presence.
In this place of limited distractions I prayed. I sought God’s direction. Relaxed. Slept (yes…your girl was tired!). I called people instead of waiting for a Facebook update. I shared private moments of encouragement instead of posting on Twitter.
In the beginning it was hard. Extremely hard. But now after finding myself “back” for a month I miss the quiet space I had.
I saw a glimpse of what I want more of…

It’s time to make a power move. A move which will cause me to shift my life from where I am to where I want to be.
During my hiatus, I could see the vision in those quiet moments. It was clear. And having those moments made staying put impossible. My soul just can’t fathom staying still with what I know to be true.
However, with this reality comes knowing I have a lot of work to do.
As a fan of Zig Ziglar, I can hear him say “Plan. Prepare. Expect.” And Mr. Ziglar (in my head) that is exactly what I’ll do.
I plan to share my journey with you all. This makes me a little hesitant. Because I’m like you in that “What ifs” can cause me to second guess…halt my progress…and oh heck….
I make excuses.
There I said it.

Make Room for Your Blessing
Are you with me?
Do you have a dream, a passion, a desire that you’d like to live right here, right now in your life?
Let’s begin by making room in our lives for the blessing. This means if…
…You want to write a book.
You have to clear space in your schedule to write. You may need to coordinate with your spouse or a sitter. You may need to scout a coffee house to write. You may need to buy a book or two on the process. You may want to find a coach.
…You want to live your healthiest life.
You need to find a workout plan. You may need to reevaluate your eating. You may need to find a buddy or two to keep you accountable. You may need to step on that scale to see where you’re starting (so you can make plans for where you are going).
…You want to grow closer to God.
You have to make room for God in your day-to-day life. You may need to dust off your bible and seek Him in the Word. You may need to start journaling. You may want to go on a retreat. You may want to increase your time in prayer.
As you can see, there are always options but to begin you have to begin.
