Well, I’ve been dealing with this issue for about a month. I’ve been going back and forth, trying to decide if I should rejoin a business that I was in before; a business that I was very successful in and I really enjoyed…until it just became too overwhelming. For some reason lately I’ve gotten it in my head that I could do it again, and even better than the last time. I even started asking people if they would support me again. And I got a lot of positive responses. I thought it was going to be so easy because so many would support me. Then I found out that I could even rejoin for free!
This is what she said:
Now that God has finally given me clarity, I’m thinking, “What was I thinking?”. It’s not like I have less responsibilities now than I had before. Now I’m homeschooling two children while also taking care of a toddler and we live in a bigger home, which requires more upkeep.
Once I learned that He really wants me to wait, I feel in my heart that it’s actually a no. This doesn’t mean that if He tells you to wait, it’s an automatic no. I just think He’s been trying to get my attention all along and telling me to wait was His way of telling me to stop going after what I thought would work and just trust Him. I just needed to really stop for a minute and stop chasing my desires. It was my desire to make more income for my family and this business is the quickest way I knew how. I knew that I did it before and it worked, so I could do it again. Even though God kept whispering, “Just write.”, I continued to pray about this other opportunity. I have known for a long time that I’m supposed to write books that will bring healing and deliverance to others. And I know that God wants to use me through this blog. While I love to write, I mostly write for you, my reader. I want to pass on my experiences in hopes that it will help you in some way.
I’m Amanda and a Christian homeschooling Mom to 4 awesome boys from ages 4 to 19.
I have an amazing, supportive husband, a passion for encouraging others in their faith, and helping new homeschoolers find their way through their journey.
Thank you for stopping by and getting to know me better.
