I loved these words from one of our Mindset Mastery Program participants, F.J. – particularly because of how she is thinking, processing, and choosing carefully how to process her experiences. It’s not easy. It’s not always quick. But I have no doubt that she is going to succeed at the things she chooses to pursue.
Check it out. She said:
I must be close to breakthrough. Life seriously looks like a mess. I have been working for this for many months. I know it is right, I don’t doubt that the answers will come, but I have been uncertain about the timing and the how and that bit of uncertainty has been hard. I really do feel that I am living Gideon’s (from the Bible) story. All my resources have been taken away. There will be no question from where the blessings really came. (no way could I take credit for it!!)
I read You2 (You squared) yesterday and it was just what I needed. I started to think “What would happen if I did retreat, I realized that I absolutely do not want that. I am positive that that would be in the wrong direction for what the Lord has for me. I would be letting Him down and I would be held accountable for that. I would let myself down, too. It would somehow be a denial or betrayal of all the tender mercies that I have already received. No, definitely not backwards.
The book ended with … if you walk in during a surgery, it looks like a murder has happened. – Things get dark before it gets better. I realized that I am right there. That describes my life perfectly right now.
Therefore I am SUPER close, and that is exciting.
Then to top it off, I listened to the Principles of Personal Freedom episode of the Rare Faith Podcast today.
THAT DID IT!!
Now I am honestly excited to be in the middle of this crazy uncertainty and chaos. I am totally psyched. It’s going to be an amazing story to tell. I am so, so grateful that I have been lead down this path. I am so grateful for all of you who have walked it ahead of me and shown me that it can be done. I am so grateful that these amazing blessings are already mine (even though I do not yet see them.)
What a wild adventure.

Eight days later, she also shared this:
(It made me smile, so I’m sharing…)
For when you are facing your terror barrier or when it looks hopeless yet you know your close:
(ok. so it’s really just for me. I am thinking hard to keep myself in a positive vibration since nothing appears to be going right. And Shatner’s “sounds like fun” came to mind and made me smile.)
Way to go, F.J. – I’m super proud of you!!
So, friends, keep smiling. Keep learning. Keep believing. You got this. It’s NOT all for nothing – THAT I can promise you. Keep searching for the hidden gifts in your adversities, and you will find them. Believe that they are good, and your world will brighten.
