Turn Your Pain Into Purpose

Do you find that inspirational quotes are, well, inspirational (such as the one in the the photo’s text)? I was motivated by such a quote after my Mac went into a coma. I tried to doctor on it myself and later took it to the technician only to be informed there was no hope. No hope? No hope? I felt like I was under attack, and I was not going out like that!

But the truth is that I struggled with what I was going to do. This blog was, after all, a part of a ministry that God had given me, that had been silenced. After several days of contemplative prayer, light shone into my darkness. I decided that I would come out of this situation better than when I went into it.

Pain Can Move You Into Action

And so, I have spent the last few months building this online ministry. Atlas, I went into creation mode and started developing the projects that the Lord had been speaking to me about. Yet, I had not gotten around to completing any of them. After I decided that I would refused to be defeated, I looked up and I saw the light. I didn’t see it before (I was too devastated), but my daughter’s Mac was literally stuffed in a small drawer of my desk where she had left it for the summer. Hallelujah! I was back in business. And I had a lot of work to do. What happened next was nothing short of amazing.

After a few weeks of rolling up my sleeves and getting down to business, I am excited to announce the launching of my new blog home, the grand opening of my inspirational printable store-Poetic Printables, our new Youtube ministry channel: Bold As A Lion Outreach Ministries, and my new author website.

I invite you to take a tour and browse around. I pray that you too will get inspired to kick the procrastination habit-move beyond the distractions, stay the course, and finish what you have started for the Lord.
