Purpose Detox: Silencing the Haters

Hey there reader!

Doesn’t it appear that everyone has haters these days–which means there must be somebody out there who considers us their “hater”—just a thought…now unto the blog.

A lot of us think that a hater is someone who is crass and in your face telling you, “You can’t do that!”, “No one will buy that from you!”, or “You are going to fail!” That is not the type of haters most of us deal with on a daily basis. The haters we deal with are much more subtle than that.

Subtle hate looks like someone suggesting that MAYBE you should try something else. Or say MAYBE you should look at the other people who attempted what you attempted the same thing failed. Or the Christian version where they’ll say, “I don’t really sense that’s what God has called you to.” Oh thanks…I didn’t know the conversation I had with God was a three way conversation with you, me and Him. It wasn’t, but thanks. (This is not to say that you can’t have people who counsel you that you’ve trusted with guidance for your life.)

Another type of hater is the people who have tried to do what we are attempting and THEY have FAILED so they are jaded, bitter and mad at the world. So it would make no sense for you to sit under that type of counsel, because they’re against anyone thinking they can succeed where they’ve failed. For example, if you’re single and wanting to be married you are NOT going to sit and talk to someone who’s been divorced and now thinks marriage is from the pit of hell. You’re just not.

So…

#1: Stop listening to people who think that you should be doing everything else other than what God has called YOU too. Those people who think you should play it safe and stop being so radical or intense. That’s their issue not yours!

2: Get advice from successful people in the area you’re seeking counsel on. Do not sit in the counsel of bitter people who have considered failure their new identity.

Stay positive beautiful–you will make it.

Purpose Detox: Run For Favor

Hello! Stop running and hiding from trials–stop running for COVER run for FAVOR.

Psalm 5:12  Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield. NIV

When we begin to pursue our purpose and passions there will be things that will go wrong–and it will seem like it’s all going wrong at the SAME TIME. But that’s just an attempt of satan to make you run to go and hide. He wants you to think that everything was “easier” when you weren’t pursuing your purpose and then decide to stop and give up. That is such a lie.

First of all, things were not easier when you weren’t pursuing your purpose…you were actually DYING a slow death. You were unhappy, bored, frustrated, unhealthy and unprofitable. And you remember all of that. SN: If you’re still not pursuing your purpose you may be experiencing those things so the easy fix is just to get on it–find your purpose and pursue!

So God’s answer to your fear right now, His answer to you wanting to give up is RUN FOR FAVOR. Run to Him and know that His favor is covering you. His favor IS your cover. It’s your protection. He will never let you go after the thing He made you for all by yourself. There are fighter angels assigned to your dreams and purpose in life. You’re not out here all alone. Papa’s got you, I promise!

His love for you is stupid ridiculous–and that love is fighting for you. He is so pleased with that His pleasure actually puts up an impenetrable wall around you. Ain’t that good! Yes sah it is!!! ­čÖé

Stay focused.
