When Life Hands You a Sucker Punch

What do you do when life hands you a sucker punch?

What do you do to keep your business and family in order as you go through all the emotions at any given moment?

Life has handed me a sucker punch.  Ouch!

A hard blow where I find myself going through all possible emotions, trying to grasp any straw to stable my mind and keep moving forward.  I already know why this is happening.  I already know that the next steps taken are going to leave me raw and wounded, but what I want to know is how to keep my energy and focus on what counts at this moment.

You know what is important and you know exactly what you need to do, but everything inside just wants to crumble.  Your bed is looking pretty good right now.

But see this is what I believe and that is that you have been through certain events in your life that prepare you for this event.  It is just difficult when it is here.

I also believe in prayer and to circle those events in prayer.  Look towards the result you want to see and not all the “what if’s”.

It is great that I can stand on those things in my life.  I can focus on prayer.  I can focus on the tools that I have been given.  Maybe it is just me, but keeping afloat takes all of your energy.  You want to keep “life” to a minimum so you can at least make it through the day.

I want to share with you another piece to this emotional puzzle that may actually put everything into place.

God wants you keep to using your talents.

I have been mulling over this for a week.  I know this is true, but how do I get my mind wrapped around it.

Let’s first look at your God-given talents.  They have been given to you specifically and not without mistake.  They are yours to be had and to be used.

If you noticed with your gifts, they are not self serving.  They are helping others and that gift includes your business.   When you are operating in your gifts, you are happier, focused on what counts and what is good.  You know you are making a difference even though you may not see it in your situation.  You are making a difference in the lives of others and their situation.

Don’t make your life so small.  Live your life big and out loud.  Crumbling under the weight of the enemy is NOT an option.

God gave you His promises.  Look to Him for support and comfort.  Trust me when I say that He is wanting you to rely on Him.  He has got your back.  Your prayers haven’t fallen on deaf ears.  They have completely circled this world that He gave us and have come back with His answer.

Push into Him and watch what He does in the midst of your crisis all they while you are helping others with theirs.

Miracles are waiting on our midst.  Don’t lose hope.


Much Love,


P.S.  Do you need prayer?  Let me know because I want to prayer for you.
