Today at work, I was thinking about what motivates me.  No one came to mind. I thought, surely someone or something pushes me to be successful in life.  Not a one person came to mind.  Not Oprah, not Michelle Obama, not Joyce Meyers. I mean literally no one came to mind. Which I found really weird.

But as I sat there thinking about what comes to mind when I am struggling with an issue, or when I am about to make a life changing decision. My 2 beautiful daughters came to mind. Truly I am motivated by them. This strong will to succeed and please God is my motivator. Being a good person and living my best life now is my motivation. Funny thing is, as I write, I believe that others motivate me.  My drive to motivate someone with a low self-esteem, fearful, suffering from abuse, knows loss, confused, unhappy or even suicidal is my motivation to push through every obstacle that comes my way.

I want my life to be a testimony of hope, of drive, of success and peace. All while being a mom, wife, friend, sister and Christian!  When I talk to others that struggle in these areas, I can’t help but see me all over them. I want them to never give up! To view me as that little engine that could, would and did!

I am a conqueror!  I do not conqueror on my own! I do not walk this life on my own. I do not succeed on my own!  I do all of this in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ!  A name higher than my own!  A name higher than any name!  With a power that can literally  move mountains, raise the dead, and heal the sick! Operating in his power, makes me a force to reckoned with because I know that I am nothing without him!

HE is my TRUE motivation!

It’s funny how life turns out – especially when you are no longer the navigator.  In my life I have learned that allowing God to guide me is what is best for me.  And you know what else, the release of trying to do this and that is no longer my job.  The pressure to figure out my own way is certainly no longer a pressure point for me because I have released control over to God.  Yes, I still have to do my part – but God is certainly guiding me down a path I have never imagined I’d take.  Yes, there have been a few ups and downs. But I wouldn’t trade anything for my journey now. The reason being is that I truly wouldn’t be as strong, confident, peaceful, but most appreciative of where I have been and my future. I know that there is nothing I can’t accomplish through Christ and Great things are ahead for me.
