Quote of the night: “Make your grass the greener grass.” Sarah Harnisch, Unstuck. (And: Favor on your cow!!)
Takeaways from Bootcamp Day 19:
- You be the greener grass;
- Stop waiting on your leaders to do the building for you.
- If you have lost rank, IT IS TIME TO GET IT BACK and never look back! Do the work you need to do for the rank. If it’s 20 kits– RUN. Teach classes.
- My fav line: FAVOR ON YOUR COW! (Bootcampers will get this!)
- .. THAT’S THE BEST PART! (Thank you Teri!)
In this bootcamp day, we covered a prayer of surrender. It was a strong reminder to be like David: small, but with the God of creation at your back. Print this off and save it where you can see it to remind yourself of who you are!
I know I don’t have this all figured out. I am weary. And I feel like I’m running the wrong direction in a rushing creek. All my actions seem to be happening in slow motion, despite my best efforts. And God, I’m tired. I’m tired of fighting to try to make this work. I see others do it well; but I can’t seem to get to the same place. It must be possible if they have done it—so why not me??
I realize that the root of the issue is control. I get discouraged when I don’t rank as fast as I see others ranking up. I feel like I can’t find business builders who are all in, and don’t need me to be there. No one seems to want to sit in an oils class. And building relationships is hard! Calling people is hard. Sometimes they don’t pick up the phone! I feel like I am standing in the middle of my business, in a great big desert, without any wind. I need Your wind, God.
I ask for forgiveness right here, right now. I ask for forgiveness for my stubbornness, for my standards, for my expectations, for my fear, for my anxiety and for my doubt. God, I lay that with you. I am sorry for the noise. I feel like I don’t listen very well. I have a hard time being still to hear You. I know that You are bigger than any giant I face. Help me remember that I am a David, because I have You fighting by my side.
This is my year of surrender. I turn my hands up to the sky and release everything I’ve been gripping with tight fists. I release my downline, my leaders, my classes, my OGV, all my business statistics, my gifts and my talents, my time, my family, my finances, my health, my past, my present and my future. I release it all to You. That means I hold none of it back for me. It’s Yours. I am done taking glory that belongs to You. Everything good that I have came from You and You alone.
Lord, give me the peace of the sun on my face. Clear the sky so I can be close to You. Be relentless with me Lord—and never give up on me. Surrendering means this business is Yours. It means my life is Yours. It means I don’t need to look over my shoulder or get discouraged, because You are in every detail. Thank you for never leaving and forsaking me! You are a good, good God. And I can trust You.
I am slowly learning to release.
Thank you for fighting for me!
