I once worked in an organization. I and my colleague had a high-end potential client we desperately wanted to convert into an actual one. His contract would run into the millions, and commissions would be huge.
We made calls. We made presentations. We spoke to the heads. We spoke to him. We prayed. We fasted – and I could see all the visible signs that we would get the contract. We had one final presentation – and the bag would be secured. We were so, so ready.
Then about two days before the presentation, my colleague and I had a blowout. A huge, massive, gigantic, spittle-flying, words-shooting blow-up…
So, I was privileged to be a guest writer on Kelly Baker’s blog.
In my post, I shared vulnerable moments – and how being honest with God helped my Christian walk. Enjoy.
“Years ago, I found myself in a limbo in my relationship with God. I was going through all the motions — praying, reading my Bible, attending church, etc. There were also no obvious sins in my life — but I knew something wasn’t right, and I couldn’t put a finger on it.
When I got married, I just wanted to have my own kids like every other woman. Painfully, it didn’t happen as quickly as I hoped.
I remember far back in 2010 (six years into my marriage) when a big sister of mine I used to pray with at that time, said to me during a prayer session, “God said He didn’t create you just to have babies.”
