Women of Purpose
Late Summer 2015, I decided to pull out my computer and start a new blog. Blogging has always been a part of me for as long as I can remember. When I was a child I owned a diary with a key. Most people would say that I’m very outspoken and far from shy. Reality is; I’m very shy in most circumstances. I can laugh and joke around people that I know and am comfortable with. On the flip side of that when it comes to relationships and large crowds of people that I don’t know, I am like a child limited on words. I am very recluse and timid. When things arise both good and bad, I find it hard to express myself verbally and so, I write to get it all out. Granted, over the years, I have become better at that due largely to my church home (Christ Church Fairfield, AL).
I have always been the person that friends and loved ones come to for advice or just to vent. As I’ve grown older, I’ve realized that doing that brings me great joy. It was then that I realized that it was part of my purpose and spiritual gift to empower, motivate and encourage others. Women had to be where I started with this because for most of my adult life I have never felt that I could relate to women. The things that I would watch them say and do as it related to their friendships and relationships never aligned with my views and beliefs. I would always joke that God changed His mind at the last minute and make me a girl instead of a boy because my mindset aligned more with theirs. So #WomenofPurpose was birthed. I will admit that I have neglected my baby and been inconsistent when it comes to growing and molding it into what I feel God has called me to make it, but I am making a more conscience effort to change that and take it seriously because it’s past time for me to birth this into something great. God has been giving me more visions on what all #WomenOfPurpose will look like and the impact that it will have.
So with that being said… Get Ready! Get Ready! Get Ready! *T D Jakes voice* New things are on the horizon and God is about to blow my mind. I pray that you will join me on this Journey to Purpose fulfilled and by doing so, you will also discover your purpose and walk boldly in it.
