Then God Stepped In

Testimony time!


This time last year I had no idea that God was about to turn my life upside down. I was losing hope and faith. I had no direction but at the same time was reluctant to change.


You know what the definition of insanity is right? Doing the same thing and expecting different results, well that was me.


I remember being a budding, free spirited twenty-one year old. Fresh out of university with a head full of ideas and a heart full of dreams. At that point, I thought I’d walk out of the uni doors and right into my dream job. (In case you’re wondering, it didn’t happen!)


I decided to go it alone, solopreneur with no experience and no clue what she was doing. As the years went by, I learnt so much about myself and even more about business. I found myself some proper training and spent hours on YouTube learning things that enhanced my knowledge. But all the while something inside of me was disappearing.


The life I was building for myself, as beautiful as it felt, came at the expense of my mental health, finances and future goals. I spent so much time focusing on the present that I had no time to prepare for my future. They say "time flies when you’re having fun" but I think time flies regardless of fun!


Twenty-one became Twenty-five and Twenty-five became Twenty-eight. The quarter life crisis kicked in and everything started to feel like it didn’t fit. I stopped loving my job, I stopped believing in my ability to create, I stopped trusting that God had my back and started relying way too much on myself.


Satan has a way of distracting us from our purpose so we don’t reach the ultimate blessings God has for us.

In the midst of my darkness and chaos, God stepped in. He sent me a blessing. Someone who challenged me to think bigger than my current situation. (For some reason all my life changing moments seem to begin with friendships. I guess God really knows how to get through to me!) It wasn’t easy believe me when I say it hurt at first, but often the truth does. When we are faced with reality it can be daunting and overwhelming.


God stepped in blog post, woman on a mountain

“Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.“ ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭43‬:‭18‬-‭19‬

God moved in my life in a way I’ve never seen Him work before. He did something completely new. It involved removing the ‘comfort blanket life’ I’d taken years to weave for myself. It involved closing a business I had spent 8 years building and moving at speed in a direction I’d never even considered.


God provided a safe space for me to be broken so He could rebuild me. He provided support from every angle. He provided resources, a new location, a new trajectory and most importantly revived the lifeless parts of me.


When I write posts for the Stay Lit Apparel blog, I write from the heart, from experience and from a genuine desire to encourage others who see this to take a chance on God.


I have no idea what is happening in your life right now, but I urge you to get real with God. Drown out the noise and give God your yes. Yes to the scary things, yes to the unknown, yes to the breaking and moulding. Yes to something brand new. When you take the leap of faith into the arms of God there is no possibility of falling!


Watch what happens, When God steps in!
