My Yes to God's Plan





This quote is 100% truth and you can live by its every word without any hesitation!

For the last six weeks, God has been using my yes to an opportunity to get my attention so that I could without any doubt in m heart say YES TO HIS PLAN FOR MY LIFE!

Which leads me to sharing the following video.  It took me over 40 takes to get it right because I was speaking from my heart without a script and needed to get real quiet inside so you could hear His words and not mine.

I'm learning that in order to do hard things, one must be willing to trust God with everything.   That goes for speaking on camera for the whole world to see and stepping way out of my comfort zone sharing all that I am in this video.  



His plan is for me to keep stepping way out of my comfort zone so that He can show me it is OK to keep trusting Him no matter what.  I pray this encourages you today to do the same and to not waste another day waiting to embrace the time you are given to fulfill His plans for your life!







So what will it be, your plans or His?

I'm praying for you and trusting God to show you exactly what He has for you today as you seek Him with your full heart!

  1. Hi Jill,
    I didn't exactly finish watching the clip. I got far enough to hear you talk about what makes you get up in the morning and puts a fire in your belly... your purpose, your meaning. I've always had a sense you were meant for something deeper than a product line. (Not that I have anything against product lines. I follow quite a few!) In the past I've felt a sort of kinship with you... your depth and soul and insights... your bravery into doing something meaningful and that really aspires to making a difference. It seems that marketing in and of itself may not be for you... and it is definitely not my forte! I think a few years ago when you were doing the I Am Beautiful campaign I kind of receded to the background. I still watched what you were doing, but as I fell away from that I also fell away from other photography and blogging things in my own life too. While I continued on my own healing mourning (still am and some days it doesn't feel very successful!), I let everything else slide. I think the I Am Beautiful really spoke to me... but not in the way you were hoping it would to people. It seemed to only highlight the ways that I am NOT beautiful. I've never felt beautiful. Still don't. And the last year the theme of the universe has seemed to me to highlight my lack of worth as a person. Not only am I not beautiful, I feel that I am a bad person. Whether it's that I'm not good at being a decent human being or that I'm just bad at life, I don't know. And today I plugged into your post after working for weeks on accepting that I'm a bad person and trying to figure out how to get through life without messing anyone else up. Then I heard you say "fire in my bell". I wish I knew what that was. I feel like such a failure on so many levels and I've been systematically checking out of things in my life. I don't have much left. I want that fire but don't know if a bad person should have it. Sorry I'm writing all this nonsense and messing up your comment section. Something in me is making me want to connect with you over this.
