Life keeps me pretty occupied with 2 young children and a home to run. I sometimes wonder how well I'm really doing in that area. Only God knows. One of the things that is on my spirit today is "Whatever you feed is going to grow, whatever you let starve is going to die." Many dreams are aborted in this fast paced culture, because we don't take the time to feed our dreams over a period of many years. We want things to happen so fast. When they don't, we "abort" our dreams. I always have before me a 10 year mindset for ministries and businesses. My family is first priority in my life. But even out of that ministries and businesses are birthed. Now, there are only 4 things, outsid of my family, that I don't want to allow to starve and "die":
2. My Book "Can A Mom Take a Break???"
3. The Parent Support Group I facilitate at my daughter's school.
4. My friendships with all the women in my life.
These things did not and are not going to grow over night. It takes years of nurturing for something to grow to what you want it to be. That's why it's good to choose things that you are passionate about. Things that mean a lot to you. The things you choose to pour life into, have to be worthwhile to you, in order to create any lasting impact on your life or the life of people around you. All the things I mentioned above are areas of life that Jesus has dealt with as a ministry to me for the past 7 years. But now they have grown from Jesus's ministry to me to Jesus's ministry through me. When you are in a rush you don't enjoy the process. Plus there is a seasoning that happens to things in your life over a period of time. Everything you do should contain salt & Light. Whatever God puts your hand to, whether it be business or ministry has the potential to grow into something amazing. But you have to let God season it and you over a period of time.
