Stepping Into A Dream
A normal day getting ready, sitting on the floor of my bedroom in front of my full-length mirror straightening my hair while listening to worship music, and HE SPOKE. It was profound, very clear deep into my heart and into my mind I saw it. A blog? Me? I remember questioning God. I saw it unfold, stories of women encouraging other women in their faith walk, an online community of unity and inspiration. My passion for modest fashion inspiring women to honor their bodies and glorify God with dressing up and removing the stigma that modesty is boring! Real life situations, real women, sharing stories of bondage and FREEDOM in Christ!
I called to my husband and told him what I saw; he insisted I started this right away. Uhh I have no computer, why would someone care about what I have to say, I am not a good writer, I’m trying to figure out who I am in Christ I could never encourage women in this way.
All the lies I allowed to take root and paralyze me in fear for the past 2 years. I never spoke of this dream because I knew once I said it there was a possibility of accountability and starting a blog could really happen. Ahh, it seemed like a beautiful dream, that a confident beautiful woman could write but not me. I was so insecure, filled with thoughts of comparison “maybe Lord she should write this she looks like she has it all together. I am WEAK.” And then again He SPOKE. “Your weakness tells of who I am.” Um, WHAT! Stopped me dead in my tracks.
2 Corinthians 12:9 “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
I read this scripture over and over and understood. This blog isn’t about how perfect I am, but about how perfect he is! The purpose of this online community is to encourage women to be real, authentic, to know their worth is found in the Cross, in who the word of God says we are. Daughters. And if one woman reading this, feels encouraged to pursue an authentic relationship with Jesus then stepping out despite fear is worth it!
So I researched blogs, starting sharing with a few friends the dream God gave me, and my incredible husband gifted me with MacBook. I knew then I couldn’t back down. And here we are 2 years later after a lot of hard work, trusting in God and literal tears welcome to Worthy Daughter.
I pray that the dreams God has placed inside you come to life in Jesus name! If God spoke it, with your obedience and faith it will happen! It doesn’t matter how big your dream is or how impossible it sounds trust God to birth that dreams into reality. I pray that passion stirs in the depth of your soul and that your dreams become louder and that fear is silenced. Get excited about your dreams, pray for them and allow the Holy Spirit to lead you into your dreams! To God be the Glory forever and ever Amen!
You are his WORTHY DAUGHTER
