Walking in Your Destiny: {Allied Women}

Allied WomenI am so grateful for the opportunity to meet some amazing women on this journey of blogging.  Several weeks ago, I was contacted by Stephanie at Allied Women about writing a series of guest posts on their blog.

Do you know about Allied Women?  It is a community of women in business. There you will find quality information from its members on marketing, speaking, coaching, publishing, encouragement and more. Allied Women features women in business.  At first, I was reluctant, because I am not a business woman.  But then I realized that I am in the business of encouraging women and empowering them to walk in the freedom of who God called them to be.

Below is a little teaser of what I wrote over at Allied Women today:

As a women nearing mid-life, I spend a lot of time reflecting on what I have or have not accomplished in life.  I often ask myself these questions:  “Have I  lived a successful life?”  “Have I done enough?”  “Am I doing all that God has called me to do?”  I want my life to count for something.  I want to know that I’ve made an impact in the lives of others.  I want to leave an imprint of God behind for the next generation to uncover.  But if I were to look at how the world defines success, I would most likely see myself as a failure.  When I compare myself to other successful women in the world today, I often miss the mark because I am measuring my success based on the status quo:

  • Do I have a college degree?
  • Do I have a good job?
  • Do I make good money?
  • Am I married?
  • Do I have children?
  • Do I own a home?
  • Am I successful in ministry?

And the list goes on.  When I look at my accomplishments and see dreams and hopes yet unfulfilled, my mind often makes room for the whispers of “you aren’t…you never have been…and you never will be successful.”

I hope you will visit Allied Women today and read the rest of my post.  Make sure to have a look around.  There is a lot of great information there.
