Your Gifts Are Not Free | How to Start Using Your Gifts for Employment

Do you have a gift or talent you give away for free, but dream you could be making a living from it?  Have you talked yourself out of that dream and become scared to turn that dream to a reality? By the end of this post you’ll know why you should stop giving your gifts and talents for free. Plus I tell you how your gifts can be used for your employment.
Your Gifts Are Not FreeHey y’all! It’s been a minute since I’ve written a post primarily because I have been enjoying connecting with y’all more intimately in our group. The live chats, Bible studies, accountability and community seems to have been the key to helping you get over some of your biggest struggles. It’s been amazing seeing the growth and hearing the testimonies of the members.

Next month the new group kicks off, so if you haven’t registered make sure to do that here today.

This morning I taught a live class on how your gifts are connected to your income. A lot of people will try and get you to believe if you are a Christian and have a gift that it should be given away for free. That myth has some of you giving away for free, the very talent God gave you for your employment. People have you believing it is un-Christian to charge for something you are good at especially if it involves helping them grow in their walk with Christ.

In today’s video, I’m not only going to encourage you to stop doing that, I’m also going to show you in scripture where charging for your service is very much in line with what God has called us to do.

Questions?

Do you have a gift for decor that you freely give to people you know, but deep down inside you’d love to make a business out of it?

Are you great a baking and everyone loved your cakes until you started talking about creating a business and selling them?

Does everyone come to you for advice on something unique, but when you began talking about charging for one-on-one mentorship, the stopped needing your advice?

Today I’m going to tell you how to get past your doubts about using your gifts and talents to make a living.

What to do when God won’t make you stop yelling at your family

What to do when God won't make you stop yelling at your familyYelling as a communication style is a very real thing. The thing about yelling is that as Christ followers we don’t typically go around broadcasting to people that we lose it with our families.

That behavior is kept under wraps. We put on our best voices in public, but become totally different people at home. That should not be so. Yelling as a form of communication was one of the biggest battles I ever had to fight. I broke the curse off of my life and will help you do the same.

If y’all are like me, you’ve prayed and maybe even fasted trying to rid your self of this terrible habit but are perplexed as to why it won’t stop. I know the struggle because I’ve been where you are. I’ve said hurtful words to not just my husband, but my kids too. It got to the point where I was ridden with guilt and refused to go on being a wife and mom who yelled. I took some drastic but practical steps which I’ll be sharing with y’all this month here on my blog, my Facebook page and You Tube channel. Here’s one of the videos that will encourage and empower you in your fight.

Watch today’s video to learn what to do when God won’t make you stop yelling at your family.

Why you need to fight to find Gods Light

Fight to Find God's Light

We have a true enemy and a true Savior. One’s sole purpose is to ensure we remain in uttter darkness while the other made the ultimate sacrifice for us the live in the light of God.

In this lifetime we will be given the opportunity to decide where we want to dwell. I’ve personally lived both and have made an intentional decision to live in and fight to find Gods light everyday. Finding and living in God’s light isn’t a one time decision.

It’s an ‘every morning when I wake up decision’. It’s a ‘moment by moment’ and ‘situation by situation’ decision. Satan wants us to choose the darkness (or sinful decsions), while God wants us to choose the light or (holy decisions).

Partnering in Faith

 Partnering In Faith

It was just three weeks ago that my husband and I were asked to travel with a team on a mission trip to Kenya. We knew about the trip that had been in the works for months but decided not to go. We had already committed to going back to Honduras in October and the cost of the Kenya trip was so HIGH compared to Honduras.

We definitely have intentions of serving in Africa someday, being that our God-daughter whom we sponsor through a children’s ministry lives there. However, with us working on baby step 6 in Financial Peace University and trying to get to baby step 7, we were certain we could not pay the $12,000 needed for both trips 100% debt free. For us, it has to be debt free or not at all.

We told our missions pastor it would be impossible for us to pay the entire cost for the trip and that it was such short notice. We had a week to raise the first part of the deposit money for our flight. His reply was, “Is it short notice for God?“. Of course, I believe that nothing is impossible with God. So I had my Mary, mother of Jesus moment and pretty much replied, “Lord; let it be unto me according to thy word.” That day I signed my husband and I’s name on the list of people traveling to Kenya in June.

saidahHow long have you been following my blog? Has it been since 2008 when I first launched it or have you recently stumbled upon it?

I know my life has changed so much from when I first launched this blog. The life I was working toward, praying for and prophesying is the life I am living today. When I first started this blog, God began giving me glimpses of the life He wanted for me, it was almost too hard to believe it.
