Trust the Process!
I've been doing some self-evaluation and I've realized that there are times when I want God to "rush the process" instead of me "Trusting the Process". There are sooooooo many things we want to do with LHU to create an impact in the lives of others. Expanding our mentorship program to include young ladies, paying for the full college tuition of all the young people involved in our mentoring program, providing temporary housing for the homeless women and children we serve meals to monthly, sowing a free apparel item to every customer that orders an item to sow into someone else's life, expanding the apparel line to touch people's lives all over the world!
Like I see it, I have a Vision for it, however it's in God's timing and not my own. This is where the rubber meets the road and I have to Trust the Process that God desires me to go through. Keeping it 100% with you all, we're still learning how to market and scale LHU, so there are things God wants and needs me to learn and experience before He allows me to move forward on to anything else.
So let me share something extremely interesting that I liken to how God desires us to Trust the Process. Did you know the Chinese bamboo tree takes five years to grow? The seed is sown into the ground and has to be watered and fertilized in the ground where it has been planted every day. This is the most interesting part and the part that many of us, myself included, get frustrated with. The tree doesn't break through the ground for five years! That's right, you have no clue that the tree is alive, dead, or even growing for five years and you still have to water and fertilize it everyday! After five years, once the bamboo tree breaks through the ground, it will grow 90 feet tall in five weeks!
You see, God has planted some special Gift in each of us and we have to Trust the Process to allow that Gift to grow into something that impacts the world or our world in a special way!
I'll summarize with a quote provided by author & speaker, Tony Gaskins...
"Trust the process. Your time is coming. Just do the work and the results will handle themselves."
And that's what we have to do... Trust God's Process. There is a reason for every season we go through in our lives. Trusting the Process and having patience while you are in the Process are keys to you reaching your breakthrough potential with your Gift. Endure Till The End!
& Always Remember To... BE A LION!
