You enjoy the benefits and security of your job but you feel like you could be of greater use to your community. I mean your job pays your bills, and God knows we need that, but it doesn’t fulfill you. It doesn’t give you that sense of accomplishment or feeling that you’ve made a positive impact in the lives of others. You’ve become complacent and settled into a job that you go to day in and day out but there’s more to life than that. There’s an emptiness on the inside of you, something that is calling you to reach outside of your comfort zone, but you push it down with excuses, doubt, and fear.
Maybe you’ve had the idea to write your testimony, speak to empower the youth, or create your own conference. You have such a big heart and a desire to give back to others but you get overwhelmed with all of the information that’s out there. You sincerely want to do good but every time you try to start, you feel defeated. You just want to help people and not have to worry about all the aspects of it. You wonder why things can’t be easier when you truly have a sincere heart to do good?
Perhaps you’ve been through a rough patch in life that you feel as if no one would understand until you meet that one person that has experienced the same thing that you have. You connect. You tell them of your story of how you’ve experienced such tragedy but God! It was God that brought you through. Your story brings tears to their eyes and sets them on the path of healing. You then realize that you can do more. If more people hear your testimony you can help more people to heal and become whole.
There is a calling upon your life to help people but you’re not sure how, as you’re only one person. There is so much to do and the thought alone overwhelms you. You keep telling God “I don’t know how to…”, “God, I need…”, “Why me?” and you begin going into a self-defeating state. You toil back and forth thinking clearly God must have made a mistake. But God didn’t make a mistake. God equips the people he calls, he doesn’t call the equipt.
Just like Moses. Moses gave excuses because he felt like he wasn’t good enough to do such a task. But God eliminated the excuses by sending Aaron to help Moses along the way. You don’t have to carry out the task alone. I am here to help you, whether that’s writing a book, becoming a speaker, or having your own conference.
Picture yourself sharing your testimony with hundreds of people and once you finish there is not a dry eye in the building. People are telling you how they didn’t know how or even if they would survive but when they heard your testimony they were inspired and grew hopefully.
Imagine receiving an email from someone across the globe about how the book you wrote helps bring a family that hasn’t spoken in three years together.
Think about your conference having a positive impact on our youth. If it wasn’t for your program, a young man would be in prison but he’s not because he had caring role models to look up to.
There are so many people who are waiting for you. Your calling impacts so many people but nothing can get started unless you do. You no longer have to be afraid or feel overwhelmed, or give excuses.
I was once in your shoes. To afraid to move because I didn’t want to make a mistake and surely knowing that God must have picked the wrong person. But no matter how much I tried to run from it, the calling kept getting stronger.
In 2007, I started a non-profit organization called C.L.A.S.S.I.C. (Christian Leaders Altogether Standing Against Social Injustice Corporation), where we are the vehicle for family empowerment. We conduct workshops and outreach to help the community. It’s truly hard work but when I see the smiles and how grateful people are, it makes it worth it.
In 2010, I wanted to do more and reach more people. So I decided to write a book. I wrote and published my first book The S Factor: A guide to being single, satisfied, and saved. I wanted to inspire women to live a Godly and virtuous life. I wrote about my experiences, my struggles, and how other women don’t have to jump from one relationship to another and experience the things that I’ve been through.
I launched ‘1st Kings’ in 2013, which is a Christian Media Company, where we promote life, business, and relationships God’s way.
As you see, I have a calling to make an impact in my community. I passionate about my faith and doing it in the spirit of excellence. I have strong faith but I truly believe that faith without work (action) is dead. You must take action. Nothing is going to happen with you hoping and wishing. I want to help people of faith write their books, become speakers, and create events that change lives. Learn from my experience and knowledge to walk out in your calling.
If you would like to couple your faith with action and write the book you've always wanted to then schedule your complimentary 20-minute discovery session to see if we are a good fit to work together.
