As many of you know, I am running for Ms. Wheelchair Washington this year. In preparation for the pageant, there are many things that need to be done. First of all, just the basic everyday needs of life need to be met, like paying bills, working, and keeping up with church and friends. In addition, I need to earn more money than usual in February in order to buy clothes and pay for a rental van in March for the pageant. It seems like as soon as I decided I was going to run, a bunch of new expenses started popping up, my wheelchair needed repaired, I had to get a new internet carrier, and during the holidays things got tight finacially because sales always drop around the holidays. So, for about a week I felt really discouraged and defeated. This past weekend I started to pray into my financial goals, and came up with a game plan to accomplish them. I determined that if I sell 2 art pieces, and schedule 4 speaking engagements in February, I will accomplish my financial goals. So far this week, I have sold 1 art piece and I have 2 speaking engagements set for February. I am so blessed!! My experience in life has taught me that when we walk in purpose, God's favor opens doors so easily, it's hard to believe. Find that sweet spot of favor, and marvel at what God can do in your life!
