The Great Unknown

Something incredible happens when we step out of our known into the unknown of God’s plan for us; we start to trust fully in His will. Operating outside of your comfort zone opens the door for God to do amazing things. You truly become a vessel to be used by Him. When I started this business I had no idea God would use it to draw me into that type of relationship with Him. As it has grown, I have grown and changed as well. The remarkable dynamic is that as the business grows larger, I feel smaller. There is a sacred type of worship that comes from sensing your smallness in comparison to God’s greatness. I stand in awe of who he is and his omniscient ways. I heard one of the leaders in our company say, “God doesn’t call the equipped. He equips the called.” This couldn’t ring more true in my life right now. I was not equipped in any manner to run a business. I was a mommy and a teacher with a degree in special education. I knew service and sacrifice and I had a strong desire to help others. I never dreamed God would use those qualities for something like this but he has. He has taken this to a level I would have never imagined and it just continues to grow. If this be only for a season, I am so grateful; so incredibly thankful for being called to be part of it. God is able; more than able to do marvelous works in your life. Step out of everything you have come to know as safe and recognizable in this world and open yourself up to the possibilities that await with our God of transformation. He came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. Welcome to abundant life in the great unknown.
