Vulnerability is the gatekeeper that leads you towards opportunity. I wrote my last post on the power of owning your story. And the more I walk with God, the more I discover not only the power to own your story, but the power in owning your disappointments. Three days after my 23rd birthday, I got…
trusting God completely, you’re no longer at the mercy of circumstances, other people, or your own emotions and limitations. It’s all about following God’s leading, standing on His Word, and then resting + trusting Him to work on your behalf.
Faith is the process of adapting your behavior, your decisions, and ultimately, your whole lifestyle so that it is in sync with what God has asked you to do—without needing to see the evidence that it will all work out in the end.So, when you put Flourishing by Faith together, you are living a life that says:

I expect and then see.
I ask and then I receive.
I am not easily discouraged or paralyzed by fear or insecurity.
This has been a desert season; yet, I’ve learned that God often speaks clearly in the valley. Every time I neglect the simple yet profound truths of who God is, I choose to forget that God is on the throne, He is in control and that there are far greater things ahead than those that I leave behind.
How you start your day will determine how it is going to be. I wonder how many of us place the same amount of effort and excitement to enriching our purpose and mapping out our future than we do to predicting the outcome of college basketball.

God’s intentions are always good intentions. He won’t give you just anything, he will give you the best and sometimes it is easy for you and I to forget that, because all we can think about is the door that didn’t open or that door that just closed on us when we really needed it.
Has it ever crossed your mind that sometimes what God deconstructs is just as important as what He develops. You go from glory to glory; you will NEVER walk in victory to end in defeat.
Sometimes when you are not seen, God is saving you for something so special that He hides you to protect you and preserve you.
It is the things that no one sees that produce everything that everyone wants. Keep doing what you are do with a greater awareness of what Christ is doing in you. You don’t need a “new and improved” assignment to experience a greater anointing. God will increase your strength in the demands of the situation.
