Happy Birthday to Ashley day! I remember her saying she wanted to be a stay at home mom. She had two little girls and wanted to be home. She made a huge jump and started a business with Lularoe Company. She remarried to Chris and has three more children. She is able to stay home, hold her baby boy and still work from home. I remember praying that God would give her an idea and He did. But it was Ashley who made the next step in quitting her job and following a dream. She is very happy being her own boss. Plus, there is a lot of time with her kids too. So Happy Birthday Ashley and I'm proud of you. I hope today brings much joy and fun with your family. Thank you for giving me beautiful grandchildren and I pray for your business too.
COURAGE ~ Do not allow anything to stop you from stepping out or stepping up to the next level in life. God has created you for purpose and only your life can reach certain people. God uses each of us in different ways and yet the same way, through his power. Your yes to God makes a bigger difference than you can imagine.
Romans 15:13 New International Version (NIV)
13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I have other friends who have followed their dreams too. The fact is this, you must take a physical step to achieve your dream. It can be scary and thoughts of this, what if it doesn't work? Yet, what if it does work? Freedom to be your own boss, freedom to do a job while watching your own kids and each of us want different things. Some people like working out to the home and someone watches their kids. It's personal choice and I see that.
Isaiah 40:31 New International Version (NIV)but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
SOAR ON WINGS LIKE EAGLES ~
God, I feel to pray. There are others just like Ashley who want to be a stay at home mom, but work from home. You did for her and you can do it for others. We are living in a scary time of life right now and jobs have been lost. Situations have changed and people hold tight to your word. Trusting in unknown time and following their own dreams. I see how Ashley's life has been an example to her kids, friends and family. As she quit her job, her made an investment into a business and it has turned out great. I pray for those reading this, they will feel your power and courage to step into their dreams too. I also pray for Ashley's business too. God we rest in you daily for helping us and guiding us. We thank you for answered prayers and those that you are working on. Nothing is too big for you God and dreams continue to come true. We live Jeremiah 29:11, a plan, a promise and a future for each of us. Keep us close to you and open up new beginnings for those who need it this day. Keep us healthy as well and help those who are sick. AMEN
I hope this post today gives you courage to face your new beginning of life. I don't know who this is for but I felt God say write it. I realize that not everyone wants to do Lularoe but there is something out there for you. Be encouraged and be lead by the spirit of God. My prayers are with you today, your family and friends too. We never know the depth of someone's life, but the power of prayer works!
