Well hello there and welcome to my newest series: FAITHing my way to the top.
If you are new to my blog… I am SO excited that you are joining us. In order for you to be able to follow along with this post you have to go back and read my previous series called 3:2. Click the link to read that fun series below https://sweetinspirationsbycandyce.com/2018/01/01/32/
I know that’s it’s been a while since I have posted on my blog, but honey let me tell you how my life has and is continuously changing day by day.
The main purpose for my move to New York is to grow my business that helps equip young ladies for purpose while partnered with a Godly mentor. The path that God has chosen for me to journey into is the entertainment industry. I am at a place in my life where my “Yes Lord” literally means wherever and whatever you want me to do, I’ll do it.
Disclaimer: This is the most challenging season of my life that I’ve ever had. It’s pushing me into a deeper level with God and self discovery. My insecurities have been placed on center stage and I’m sitting in the front row staring back at them while fighting through the blinding lights and heat that come from the pressures all around me. There’s no getting around them. There’s no yelling “CUT” and “BACK TO ONE”. You continue to push through every emotion and every reality. The only thing that is helping me to see past the blinding lights and spot lights on my insecurities is the faith that I have in God. He is right by my side and wipes away my tears.
The title of this series came to me a few weeks ago and it hit me like a ton of bricks. This season of life that I’m in is literally my leap of faith while wearing heels. Ladies you know how heels make you feel from the very beginning after you purchase them and the many times after you have had them a while. Very painful at times BUT you feel BEAUTIFUL in them and like a new lady. But the most important thing to remember about wearing heels, you don’t just sit down in them. It requires you to actually walk in them and go places and that is where the pain comes from. Not in the sitting still and pretty stage but in the actual journey from your home to your destination. Think about that for a few moments.
So as I am reflecting on the mountain moments where everything seems to be working out perfectly and exceeding your expectations, those moments will have you praising God from a joyful and cheerful place. But what about those moments when you weren’t ready for those deep valley places and you thought that the faith that you have in God would continue to elevate you to mountain top views. Well I’m here to share my journey of mountain top views and of deep valley places. I’ve experienced both just this short time that I’ve been in New York. I went from getting booked back to back to rejection after rejection and rejection again. Yes it did take a brief toll on me and my faith but God reminded me that He is right here with me and that I’m still growing closer to him and will be able to touch the lives of so many different people. I have already seen that done right in front of me. Each set that I’ve been on has allowed me to share my testimony with so many others.All of the No’s only reminded me that those were not the doors that I needed to have opened in order to fulfill my ultimate goal/purpose.
All of the opportunities that I have been given, don’t just happen on a regular basis especially to someone that is just getting into the entertainment industry. All of the business classes that I’ve been taking weekly for FREE, don’t just happen anywhere. You have to pay thousands of dollars for this type of information in order to grow a business. God is showing me that by my active faith in Him and trusting Him to provide for me, is the ONLY way that I’ll make it to the top.
I want you to ask yourself: What will my life look like if I go after what GOD has created me to do instead of what I think it should be like?
In closing, when I am referring to “TO THE TOP” I’m not meaning taking over an industry or being well known. It means to the top of your purpose that you were created for. Remember that no one can do what you were created to do like you can. This world needs our obedience. Stay alert of any distractions that will be sent your way by Satan and discern everything that is placed in front of you.
Love y’all and I will post some shots from my photoshoot at the end of each post.
