Be Careful What You Ask for...

Before embarking on any journey. You should pray. Not that prayer that asks God to watch over your family and keep you safe during your daily travels in the world. Not the one that thanks God for waking you up this morning and starting you on your way. I mean really pray.

Pray the one that humbles you to step out on the faith that you have been saving for the right opportunity. Pray the one that truly makes you to yield to his word and allows God to be the potter and you be the clay. Pray the one that makes you let go and let God even though you don't know what you are going to be when God is finished.

So I prayed... If this is for me Lord send me some clients. But only the ones for me. Lord you know I am working out of my home. The home you blessed me with. The next thing I knew was that I needed a date book to keep all the clients straight. I was working a full time job and doing a retightening or grooming during each day of the week (except for every other Wednesday and I get my press & curl). On the weekends a locking session. My family would ask, "Who do you have today?" Clients would ask me how I keep my current schedule. I tell them that it is by the grace of God. You will be surprised what you can do when guided by God. I get tired but I don't complain because this is what I asked for.

When you ask for guidance you should be willing to follow even if it doesn't make sense at the time.

Officially, my journey began August, 2005. Or should it have began May 2002. That is another story.
