We only have 28 days until 2017 is over. But as the popular saying goes “It’s not over until it’s over.” The year is not over, you still have time to achieve or start to achieve anything you set your mind to.
Most of the time we pause the plan because we haven’t gotten that little piece we think we require to make it perfect. Come close let me whisper something to you. You close enough? Okay check this…perfections isn’t the plan…purpose is!!
Mind blowing huh? I’m just kidding. But you do get my drift, right? Consistent steps make the path, no matter how small they are. As you know time waits for none. That was so true this year because I personally don’t remember what happened to the year. Did you feel it too? I looked up and October was gone.
Out of my mess has come my message. The message of confident expectations in Gods word.
My former need to perfect my plan halted the move toward my purpose. God told Jeremiah, go…I’ll tell you what to say… He went.
Here’s the real deal about trying to be perfect.
1. It’s an unattainable fallacy. The only perfect being is Christ.
2. It blocks transparency. People will only connect to what they can relate to. If you’re trying to present a perfect front you will have zero impact. Real impact.
3. It reflects your lack of faith and confidence in God.
Move in spite of what it looks like. On the other side lies the miracle.
I remember when I wanted to start my podcast this year. It had been two years in the making but I kept putting it off because everything was not perfect. Well, my spirit nagged me until I just did it. It ran from February to May. It wasn’t perfect but it served the purpose at that time based on all the great reviews it got. I had to pause it to accommodate my writing deadlines. But now when I pick it back up next year, I know what I wanna change and make better and I’m not scared anymore.
Today I want to encourage you, the year is not over and 2018 is full of potential.
Peace & Blessings
The response to Mended With Love has been nothing short of amazing. I had so much fun penning the novel that I’m glad the readers loved it.
If you haven’t met the Danjumas what are you waiting on. Check through this blog and meet the brothers, Meanwhile let me share a partial review of the final book in the series by Romance in Color
“I like how Unoma weaves spirituality into her stories without coming off too “preachy.” I understand that Christian Fiction may not be everyone’s preference, but Unoma Nwankwor is such a gifted writer that you will find yourself completely engaged in the story. MENDED WITH LOVE is bound together with romance, love, forgiveness, redemption, Biblical truths, great music and food. I highly recommend this novel. While you are at it, I recommend that you also read the books about the other Danjuma brothers: Rasheed, A SCOOP OF LOVE, and Jabir, ANCHORED BY LOVE. You can thank me later.”~ Romance In Color Review

Hey there! It’s been a minute. I know I say that a lot but I know y’all forgive me because life happens.
I haven’t been idle though, just busy writing and living. Okay let’s get into what I want to talk to you about today. God’s timing…
Chapter 14 of my book In The Dark talks about seasons of business. We more often than not compare our planting season to another’s harvest season. In my devotional this morning I read this and decided to share. It’s exactly what I aimed at portraying for #Christianpreneurs •
Do I claim to have mastered it all? No. But I’ve mastered enough to empower and encourage those who are going through the wildernesses or pastures. There’s no benefit in what I’ve learned if I don’t teach/share with other’s. I love my fictional characters but I’m also an entrepreneur and I go through, gains, loses and the wait/process in between. Here’s the excerpt.
“The same is true for God’s timing and our preparation. Our job is to not run ahead of Him or lag behind. We should take natural, commonsense steps that are in line with His Word so we will be ready when He delivers our heart’s desire. As we step out in faith, He will show us the way by either opening doors or closing them. Sometimes that will require we do a new thing, and sometimes it means doing what we already know to do.”
Just a thought, if David has become a King when he was anointed, he might not have been the greatest psalmist known to man.
