Relax, Reflect, Recharge

Getting Into Action

Happy Sunday!  This has been a busy 12 days and I am grateful that today I get to rest, relax and recharge.  Not only do I get to go to church to recharge spiritually but I also get to host a Thirty One Celebrate and Connect meeting.  I am sure you are thinking – how is that resting but having these bi-monthly meetings with fellow Thirty One consultants helps me to recharge and re-energize.

While preparing for this month’s meeting, I started to reflect on the theme – Getting into Action.  Then I found this posting on Facebook from a friend:

Sisters, do not be surprised when God uses you for the kingdom. Do not be surprised when His plans for you are greater than the plans you imagine for yourself. Saying yes to the Lord goes far beyond logistics. Its goes beyond a block in the schedule, a note in our planners. Its reaches beyond gifts we feel comfortable using, beyond a box that our status and culture and insecurities would like us to live within.

WOW!  This is definitely not where my thoughts were headed when I thought about getting into action.  Getting into action for me meant taking control – WRONG!  I need to be reminded on a daily basis that I am not in control.  For when I am in control, FEAR tends to take over with Negative Nellie and her friend Doubtful Debbie showing up for a party.  It is definitely not a Girl’s Night Out Thirty One style. For my actions when not in God’s plans create chaos.  Of course, when I am in God’s plan and I have no clue what is going to happen, I have to admit that I do get a little nervous.  As I was writing this blog, I got a “Message from God Wants You to Know”:

 When you feel fear, have the courage to acknowledge it and it will begin to lose its power. It is only when you pretend it isn’t there, that it grows.

Okay, so I am getting the message.  My ACTION steps this week will include acknowledging my fears about finances and the future of my business.  Satan has a field day when I allow FEAR to step in especially in these areas of my life.  Am I the only one?

In the words of Scott Monroe, Chief Brand Officer with Thirty One, “Every day, end up a little bit better person at the end of the day, then when you woke up”.

As you reflect on the past week and plan for the upcoming one, what will your action steps be?  Will you be in control or will you let God be in control admitting your fears either quietly to him or verbally to your closest confident?   Will you end each day a little bit better person then when you started?

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
