Take a minute to let this soak in. Has anyone really ever achieved anything by being a back seat driver? I think one of the greatest ways God builds our faith is by asking us to step out of our comfort zone and into the unknown. If we knew exactly how it was going to play out, then we wouldn't need faith to act. We would just do it, knowing that we would succeed. Sometimes we are asked to step blindly into the dark and ask God to give us just enough light for the step we're on (also a book by @stormieomartian).
I experienced this recently when I needed God to provide direction, but I wasn't hearing from Him on what to do next. After talking with friends about my desire for answers, they said that sometimes we come to a fork in the road where God isn't giving us an answer, but He just wants us to make a choice. Neither path is wrong, but He wants us to choose. As we step out in faith and move forward, Him meets us where we are. Now don't confuse this with when He gives you a clear answer, or when He says "no" to something. He will not bless what He did not ordain or what He already said no to. He does not bless choices made against His will and against His word.
Think about where you are right now. Is it comfortable? Ask God what needs to change so that you can boldly move out of your comfort zone and into the direction of great accomplishment with God by your side. Sometimes He'll show you the way, and other times He wants you to take a step of faith. Whatever you choose, keep moving forward and keep asking for His wisdom to direct your path. .

“I am currently working for a home health company taking care of pediatric patients. I absolutely love that I am finally able to take care of kids. It is an incredible feeling being able to watch them progress day by day. I have been working for almost 6 months now and I am getting trained for my first promotion as team leader! I am also working towards becoming a Certified Pediatric Nurse. I am starting school at the University of Washington in January to get my BSN degree as well! Going to #UW has always been a dream of mine and I am happy to finally get to do it! There are so many positive things happening right and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you so much for everything you have done for me and my family! ” - Tiffany, WWIN Grantee

Feeling extremely proud of myself at present. Attended a long awaited specialist appt in Sydney yesterday and due to our train breaking down, taxi transfer issues and then a train derailment on our way home which meant a disabled taxi ride home.....well lets just say pain is NOT my friend at present!! With our daughter off camping and hubby out in the taxi...it meant it was practically my first night home alone in forever. Seeing as im pretty much just stuck in bed when this happens, i needed to find something to do whilst in agony.
Marathoning a tv show and working on my first ever attempt of a 5D Diamond painting was my distraction for the night....and i bloody well managed to complete her!!! Really happy with how she turned out although it was far from easy for me... my hands struggled to hold the tool and swapping to my 'good' hand made things even harder.....but i persevered.
Even started a new one which is for a friend as a lil surprise 😚😎 Love the way this turned out and cant wait to have her framed! Gimps can still prevail lol

After a week of hustle in NYC, we get to work out here on this quiet piece of land. Nature gets our wheels goin! 🙏 #grateful
Happy SATURDAY beautiful souls!!! 💫
The sense of achievement is something that makes us feel great, energised and proactive. I like to know at the end of each day that I have achieved something that was good for me, so I made a list of all the things that give me a sense of achievement, some days I may only get to doing something small on my list but going to bed at the end of the day knowing I did something that makes me feel proactive, always makes me wake up with more energy and in a positive mood the next day.
Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture the heart.

What does my soul yearn for:
The waves calling me from all my surroundings leaving the crowd waiting behind closed doors as I get pulled by the hand while I feel every grain of sand touching me as I move closer with excitement for the touch of water on my hand…and the wind sings a song, while I write lyrics that no one else will ever understand.
Leaving footsteps on the sand I go back to the crowd talking without any doubt and make myself so very proud. My name is now known loud and clear my voice is heard as there is no fear. To BE, to be me, the me I know I am, the me I understand.
Long lost in confusion as to what love is and who love is to me, years till right now of hiding you finally came to release and inform me about what a relationship between two strangers and this thing called love can mean. Walking with me, hand in hand in a forest so deep where only nature can speak, we lay down under the stars and laugh out loud just like little kids.
Like in movies we dance in the rain, we grow old even maybe a bit insane as we speak words of the feelings we feel to one another as we travel in the unknown, till darkness surrounds us we stay cause somehow it feels so perfect and when we know it is time now to let go, we know it is not the end of us but if it was seen as such…it will be just like the true love I use to wright about till you showed up.
