Friday Motivation: He Called You To Be You

 

Psalm 20:4 “May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.”

Opportunities are great but not all of them are for you. Just because an opportunity presents itself to you, it doesn’t mean that you should jump right at it. Stick to your goals. Keep working towards those dreams and do not be easily persuaded by the” easy way out”.  Try not to let anything sway your away from your calling.

Remember why God chose you.

He called you to be  you. If everyone tried to do the same things in life, this world wouldn’t make any sense.  If you’re an artist, be that artist. If you’re a businessman, be one heck of a business man/woman! The point is, keep doing what you are passionate about or what you were called to be with all your heart. Give it 100%. Try not to live a life that others want you to live. Try not to please others by doing what they think you should be doing.

I am me. The one and only Debz Mak. I am unique. I am different. No one else in the world can do what I do the way that I do it because God gave me a unique way of doing it. If I don’t do what He called me to do, then who will do it for me? No one.  So, why try to live a life that was not intended for me?

Life will pass you by.

So what are you waiting for? Search deep inside your heart those dreams and desires that God placed in there and go after them. Even if people think you’re too much of a dreamer. I’ve always been called weird or a dreamer. And honestly, that has never bothered me. I like being different. I like being me. I love the way God made me. And you should too. You should love the way God created you.

Psalm 139:14 “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”

If there’s something you should have accomplished long ago that you still have not done, now is the time to get started. Don’t put it off any longer. Whether it’s a change of career, going back to school, starting a business, or whatever it is, pray for direction from God and lean on Him to guide you.

We spend so much time looking back on our lives thinking what shoulda coulda woulda, that we never actually just go for it and DO IT!

Psalm 37:4-5 “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

Be blessed.

How In The World Am I a Stay-At-Home Mom With a Full Time Job?

Calling all my working mamas! How in the world do you do it? Especially if you have a 9-5 job. I work from home and thought it would be just fine with an infant and toddler. Hah. Forgive me for underestimating how much work it would be. It is really hard. At least I don’t have a job that requires me to clock in and out and sit at a desk for certain hours. Don’t get me wrong, I still have to work 40+ a week, but I get to make my own schedule. If it was not for the flexibility, I […]

Enrich Your Space With Flowers

Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert on flowers. But no one says you have to be one or that you should break the bank to have some pretty flowers around the house. I bought these at my local martketplace and was instructed on how to properly care for them. I’ll try to change them up a bit every two weeks or so. Many people have misconceptions about flowers such as: Flowers are girly. You shouldn’t buy yourself flowers. Flowers are expensive. Flowers are only for special occasions But I’m learning that floral centerpieces  can brighten up any room […]

When It’s Time To Let It Go

Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go. —Hermann Hesse For some, letting go is as easy as saying “oh forget it.”  In that moment, they’ve let go. For others, like me, letting go is more difficult.  Something I have been battling with is letting go of certain people/relationships. Because I know that as soon as I let go, I will no longer turn back or have room for it in my heart. And that whatever it is I’ve been holding to and fighting for, will disappear into thin air as if it […]

What Makes a Home?

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. – Maya Angelou                                                     Moving can definitely be bittersweet. I honestly did not feel sad at all at first. it was all joy, peace, and happiness. I didn’t really miss the old house until today.  I don’t miss it in a “I want to move back” kind of way, but I just […]

Once you wake up and smell the coffee, it’s hard to go back to sleep. -Fran Drescher   Let’s talk about something I love so very much: COFFEE. Today I’m going to share my Coffee Bar/Station and give you details on how it came to be. Also, I will share how I make the best espresso right from my home.

I saw some inspiration on Pinterest, […]
