This is my first blog post, and I am not much of a writer. I am not a woman of words, or even good with them, but I am a woman full of Jesus. He is my go to for everything. He has my back and won’t let me down.
“God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.” PSALMS 46:5
This verse is running through my mind as I am writing. Writing equals vulnerability for me. So here I am being completely vulnerable.
My dance career started at the age of 12. Little did I know that when that little redhead walked in that room, my whole life would change. The plan that God created me for didn’t change, just the plan I thought I had for myself did.
The next few weeks I fell in love with the sport called dance. I wasn’t good at it at first, but as my passion grew so did my strength and ability.
Fast forward a few years – Candace (the little redhead I mentioned earlier) saw something. Potential. I accepted the opportunity and became a student teacher. After student teaching, the actual teaching came. With teaching came more responsibility and more stress. (If I knew why I was going through that stress, I would have taken notes.. :))
Anyways… God’s timing is perfect. ALWAYS perfect. In that timing God opened the door to something I could not even imagine – which I shouldn’t be surprised – His word never fails..
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us…”
I bought the company. At 21, I owned my own company. Taking over was exciting, emotional, and stressful. Unlike me, God knew I was ready. I had to continue trusting that God would provide and He would give me strength. Taking over the business wasone thing, but once I made that decision I realized the studio we were renting was being sold. We had no place to have dance class…
“God, you got this. You have my back. You told me this is what you wanted me to do, so I know you have a plan.” the thought I kept telling myself through this process. And yes. He did have a plan. Again, a plan “immeasurably more than I could ask for even imagine” would soon take place.
Remember, you are loved, you are beautiful, and you are chosen!
