Walking on Water

I am so inspired right now. It is a wonderful feeling to be back in the zone and inspired again. It has been a long dry year but I feel like I am back! Last year at this time I was blowing and going in my Mary Kay. I earned my 1st free car and my team and I did over $10,000 in production in the month of April last year. We were on track to becoming our own unit and were tracking the next level car for directors. I earned my biggest commission check. I was kicking butt and taking names! It was awesome! Then the bottom began dropping out. The church could not afford to pay Darin his salary and we had to give up our house. We were renting at the time and decided to not resign our lease in June. July 1st we moved into our friends home to house sit for two months. We ended up living at my parent’s house until November. Darin since has totally stepped away from ministry and gone back to work for Whataburger. This is not a bad thing for us right now. He is taking a break and God has provided a wonderful opportunity for him in this job with a lot of potential for advancement. We have gone back to the established church and joined a Baptist church, which a year ago I said I would never do. Each of these things is a post or has been a post of their own for a later date. Today I am so excited because over the year slowly God has restored all that was lost in my business and we are submitting strong to become our own unit in Mary Kay. To all of you reading our there outside the pink bubble that means I will triple my income and can go on target for the Pink Cadillac! Being a director in Mary Kay is being in the top 3% of the company. You are given 4 months of qualification time but we are doing it in one month! That is we will be a ONE MONTH WONDER UNIT!!! The end of the Seminar year is June 30th and I want to be a director by then! I have been studying Excuses Be Gone. Wonderful book. But he talked about in the book each night feeding your dream. So many times we feed the fear and let our brains ponder the "ifs" and all the things that could go wrong. But what if we took the time to feed the dream and the "what ifs" that can be gained? It takes seeing it, tasting it and feeling it to keep you stepping out on faith. He suggested you take 30 minutes before you go to bed each night and dream and feed your brain all the good your goal will bring. See yourself doing it. Imagine it and then let it stew all night long for the time that you sleep. Imagine what you can unlock in your brain if you would just ponder the good and not the fear. Music has always been the water to my inner soul. So I got my Iphone and began playing the song, Time of my Life, by David Cook. Love that song. But my life song is by Set the World on Fire, Britt Nicole. LOVE HER! When I was flipping through YouTube I found her newest song. Walk on Water. I began to cry. My unit name is the W's which stands for Water Walkers. The story of Peter walking on water is my favorite story. After reading the book, If You want to Walk on Water you Have to Get Out of the Boat, I chose my future unit name from it. This song is too perfect! God is so good to show us things and encourage us when we seek Him!
Listen to this awesome song!
