Overhaul Your Life

How many times have you said to God, "Ok, I'm ready for your plan for my life" ?  It was most likely said in a time of despair when your plans, that you made on your own, didn't work out.
(Am I right or am I right?!)

Believe me, I've done it too.  I've prayed that prayer that so many times in my darkest hours because I was just SO done with this life.  However, I've also said those words when I felt lost and confused.  Word of advice,  DO NOT ask God to take away or give you anything so that you can do His will, unless you are prepared for the consequences.  I know from experience.  Let me tell you it was a freakin' doozy.  It was my senior year of College, my fiancee left me, I had to move back in with my parents and I totaled my car.  All that happened in 4 months! Talk about moving mountains!

I say this as a word of caution.  If you think you're at a low point and need God to save you, you're right.  But the thing is you needed Him waayyyy before that.  I have this theory (which I could be totally wrong)  that if you are actively seeking a relationship with Him and do love God before you cry out for his overhaul, that He will make small moves first. If you are open an seeking Him then you will see these small signs or changes in everyday life.  At the time of my overhaul I was not nearly as deep with my walk in Christ as I am now.  I see small changes and hear his voice more frequently.  He knows I am sensitive so small signs are the best for me.

I wonder how God is speaking to you?  Do you need a small change or large?  I would love to hear all about it in the comments below or reach out to me on social media.

Love you always,


  1. Very true Leah,
    Personally I always looked up to him when I needed (or wanted) a career change and I kept looking and looking for so many opportunities that none would fruition. Doors were closed, I was becoming frustrated and unjustly though God was to busy for me. Little I knew (but now I'm certain) that God knows the right timing for things to happen, good or not so good, because he knows what our pathway should be, and expects our effort to find it or make our maximum effort to find it or open it up! This is probably applicable to May aspects of life, work, relationships, friendships etc. congrats you have a beautiful page! Rodrigo Pimentel (I couldn't get to comment w my google user, sorry)

  2. I actually figured it out (at least one battle won on Sunday haha)

    1. Hello Rodrigo! Thank you for checking out my page and for sharing a bit of your story. I love what you said about God' timing for things that are "good or not so good, because he knows what our pathway should be," PREACH IT! We live for Him. Praise Jesus for the battles won!
