The Pursuit of Me…
I lost it. It was just a matter of time. Pressure from the outside coupled with pressure from the inside. Everything I believed I was, and who I strived to be, started to erode. And then it all came crumbling down. When this forever 27-year-old crossed over 40, it triggered something…my implosion. Looking back, it was the best thing that could happen to me. If you want all of the gory details, you can read about it in my autobiography The Battle of Surrender.
No joke, there is something about the number 40 that seems to beg for release. With all my tenacity, I worked hard to become. Corporate job, nice house, nice things, a put-together-life as wife and mom who appeared to have it all. It all looked great from the outside as long as you didn’t stare for too long or see past the façade. But no matter how much I attained, it grew heavy and demanding. It slowly started to suck the life out of me with its expectations. First the excitement wore off, then the passion, and finally the joy. Life became drudgery. I felt empty. Waking up was even a chore because sleep was robbed, too. There was too much to manage. I was collapsing from the load that I wasn’t designed to carry. And I grew weary of the masks that smothered my God-given identity.
It was only through the pursuit of “me”, that I discovered the Master’s design and hints of my purpose and calling. My spiritual DNA was exposed which provided clues to my purpose. Persistently, but gently, Jesus pulled back the layers until the authentic me was revealed. Destiny beckoned, and I found contentment fueled with a fiery passion for writing, speaking, consulting and coaching. All which are a far cry from my previous self-built life. And like a caterpillar growing its wings, Kingdom Builders Academy provided the free Boot Camp to equip me and complete the transformation.
