Hey Worthy Girls!
I've been thinking about my grandmother a lot lately. My grandmother was the type of person that loved sharing her wisdom with her family and anyone she came in contact with. I've been thinking about how fortunate I am to have women in my life who poured into me daily. I believe that's why I have such a love for inspiring women to be the best version of themselves and to know their worth!
This week, I was praying for direction and clarity about some things that are going on in my life. And, to be honest I just did not know what to do or what route I should take. As I was praying, I thought about my grandmother and heard her voice say "Use what you got!" My grandmother would often tell a story of how there was a time when she was struggling financially and she barely had money to buy her children food. Things were rough! As she was crying and praying, she heard God speak to her and say "Use what you got!" At first, she didn't understand what that meant, but soon realized God was simply showing her that she already had everything she needed to change her life. She took those words and completely changed her life by using her skill set for nursing to create additional income by doing home healthcare at night. With that extra income she not only had the money she needed to feed her children, she was able to purchase a home and move her 6 children out of the projects!
Often, we think we need certain things to make our dreams happen when in reality we already have everything we need on the inside of us! What do you have right now? You have your life. You have your voice. You have your God-given gifts and abilities. You have your intellect. You have your faith. You have your belief in yourself! Now, take those things and use it! Stop sitting on what you already have! If you use what you already have, God will do the rest! Use what you got!
