I was denied twice in one week by companies I thought I was destined to work for.
My dreams, my plans, my confidence was crushed. The vision I had for myself for next summer died, and I’m frantically starting from scratch to make up something new.
ok HOLD UP. Let’s try that again.
The Lord shut two doors in one week that I was pushing to hold open with my weak human hands.
His dream for my life, His plan for my career, His spirit was swirling in my atmosphere.
The vision He has for my purpose next summer is alive and working, and He’s frantically trying to show me that He’s already got it all figured out.
Re-commit yourself to Him, friend. Today. Not tonight when you say a prayer by yourself. Not tomorrow when you go on a run. Not in a few minutes when you’re listening to peaceful music. Now. Right now.
I encourage you in this season to spread some lil dashes of encouragement to someone you might assume has it all figured out. Maybe comment their name here so we can come to love together.
And friends, no matter what you might be hustling or waiting for this holiday, please embrace this truth: there are better. things. ahead.
Hi, I'm Chlo.
I've been writing and reading and all the storytelling things since I learned as a kid that if you fold and staple construction paper together, it sort of looks like a real book. I have always craved soul serving stories- ones that melt like butter in your mind as you hear your heart explained out loud.
This here is my home away from home. When I'm not exploring neighborhood coffeehouses, driving down the Pacific Coast (again), or loving on all my people - I'm probably here, with you. Come on in! Scroll around. I hope you feel less alone.
