This week I accomplished at least three major things and really zoned in on my purpose. I feel God has called me to do three things specifically and I have five major projects coming up. I have everything in my reach and in my sight. I'm energized about it all, and I felt the need to work on them ASAP. I want to get them all started NOW, but God began tugging on my heart telling me daughter, its best that right now, you accomplish NOTHING.
I can see my future pretty clear for the most part, but God has called me to REST. He has called me to get everything in order and relax. I can chase all the dreams he’s placed on my heart, but I feel him saying NO. I feel him telling me it’s time for me to focus on him, get at his feet and chill. Luke 2:36 talks about a prophet named Anna. She was a widow and the bible states in vs. 37 “she never left the Temple but stayed there day and night, worshiping God with fasting and prayer” (NLT). We can have our plates full until they can’t fill up anymore, but what difference is that going to make if there’s no room to digest anything.
I think it’s great God gives us vision, plans, and callings but sometimes we have to take a chill pill and sit at his feet. Sometimes the only way to fulfill everything he’s called us to be is by fasting and praying. We have to get it together in the simple ways rather than being constantly busy. I know God has great plans for me, but in the past few days in the midst of all this goodness he called me to rest. I know I'm not the only one either. I know your business is going good. I know your book and your store is going good. I know your money is flowing in, but sometimes it’s best to sit and be still. It’s best to relax and smell the fresh air. I don’t work overtime because I know that’s time God allowed me to be with him. My bills are paid and I want for nothing so why would I drive myself crazy trying to work.
We have to start being like Anna and accomplish prayer and fasting. We have to start accomplishing Jesus. I think it’s in those moments that we accomplish nothing; we actually accomplish everything and more. I want to be prepared for my blessing and I’m praying you get ready for yours. It all starts by the mastering the art of being still before God even when our blessings are on the rise.
I love you and I pray you have a happy Sunday. If you have not ordered your copy of God Set Me Up get yours today.

Have a blessed week and take some time to accomplish nothing!
