To say the month of October was crazy would be an understatement. While this month and this Purpose Project was to help orphans in Africa, I must tell you I think the Lord made it a lot about me too. Not in the “I need attention, glory be to me” kind of way. No, more like a “you need a lot of work Brittany, let me use this month to show you where I need to mold you more” kind of way. And boy did He.
There were points this month where I had decided to NEVER do another Purpose Project. It’s just too tough, I hate the rejection, I can’t let these people (in Africa, as well at the FAB mocha club peeps) down. Life is a lot easier when I’m not having to inspire, encourage, compel, and sometimes beg people to donate money. But then the Lord reminded me that the things worth doing are NEVER easy. And I really don’t want to live my life just chillin’ on the couch doing the easy things. No, I want to make a difference. And when I became SO focused on a goal, would I reach it, would I not, my husband sweetly suggested that I switch my focus. Because victory was not in the $2000, it was in even just ONE orphan being cared for. No matter what the goal, someone was getting up and doing something about this horrible crisis, and any amount was remarkable.
All for the orphans! Are you smiling right now?! I am…ear to ear, teethy, cheesy, Hallelujah, Amen kind of smile!
Sometimes the Lord calls you to step out on faith with a goal, dream, etc. and you see no way of making it happen (He does though). But you do it, because the blessings He will rain down on you in your obedience are phenomenal. Lord, thank you for letting me be a part of this!!! Have you ever thought about doing a Purpose Project of your own?! DO IT! You will be challenged, stretched, and Blessed beyond belief! Jump in feet first, help these precious people in Africa with one of the wonderful projects going on through the mocha club, do something you’ve always wanted to do, and make a difference!
Now it’s time to start the fun journey of applying for the reality show Big Brother! What should I wear? Any suggestions of how to make a killer submission tape? Do you think I even have a chance to be on the show?! Ha!
Thanks for the support this month! Can’t wait to do it again next year!
To a Bucket List with a Purpose!
