I'll be the first to admit that we might not have thought our new lifestyle all the way through. We'd been talking about making the jump into self employment off and on for a couple of years, however the timing was always wrong. Many still think our timing was/is wrong, with the economy down and prices going up how are we going to survive?
I want to encourage you today. It isn't easy following the path that God wants us too. He might ask you to sacrifice one thing or many things. The road might be extremely curving and up hill. My friends it's so worth it to follow Him though. He will never leave you or forsake you. We are following Him. I have never felt more at peace with a decision. It is hard though and at times I forget why we're choosing a path that seems hopeless. We can't get ahead. Bills are piling up and money is scarce. Many weeks we only have $20 to stretch as far as we can.
Each month we watch as bills pile up and money isn't coming in as fast as we'd like. We pray and wait for a miracle. I'll be honest that at times I am really scared. I am forever grateful for my small side jobs and being able to pinch pennies. They have kept us afloat until checks roll in.
Is He asking you to take a path that seems dark? Trust Him. Take that leap of faith. It might get darker than you ever thought it could. Trust. There is no place I'd rather be than in His hands!
