Moving Forward On Your Purpose and Passion

By Inside Out with Courtnaye I think this post is going to be an exciting one to dive into! So I hope you have your printer ready, fingers geared up to screen shot, or your journal nearby to take a few notes, because this one will be thought-provoking and motivating. The whole point is to get you MOVING in God’s direction! So what is it, sis? What are you passionate about? Think about it for a sec and write it down. Biblically, God [...]

Knowing and Fulfilling God’s Will

I want to ask you a heart-to-heart question. Are you about the Father's business today? Or, are you busy doing what you want to do vs. what God has called you to do? Think about that for a moment. The reason why I’m asking these questions, is because sometimes we can get so caught up in doing a “good” thing that we neglect to be doing a “God” thing? What I mean by this is, “Are you truly doing the will of [...]

Steps Toward Your Purpose

I was recently a part of a women’s conference (She Will Conference), and one of my fellow sisters in Christ spoke on a lot of “P” words. It was truly awesome! And I say that to say, that even though this was not intended, I can’t help but have a bunch of “P” words coming out of me as I prepare to write this week’s blog post! LOL! So as you read this write-up, I can’t help but talk about the process of prayer, patience, [...]

What Are You Passionate About?

I think this post is going to be an exciting one to dive into! So I hope you have your printer ready, fingers geared up to screen shot, or your journal nearby to take a few notes, because this one will be thought-provoking and motivating. The whole point is to get you MOVING in God’s direction! So what is it, sis? What are you passionate about? Think about it for a sec and write it down. Biblically, God was passionate for us when He sent [...]

Learning to Walk in Freedom

There is nothing like being free! Think about it for a moment. Reflect back to a moment in your life when you felt totally free. What did it feel like? If you’re there now, what does it feel like? I highly encourage you to write it down in your journal, so you’ll remember this feeling. Because in this life, we have to learn how to walk in freedom freely. If you are a Christian, then you know the feeling of being set free in Christ. [...]

What Happens When You Embrace Contentment

Can I ask you a question? I hope you answered a wholehearted “yes” (LOL). Okay, here goes and seriously speaking… “Do you want God’s best?” I would think that it didn’t take long at all for you to answer that question. I mean, who wouldn’t want God’s best, right? Right. Yet, I’ve discovered over the years, that in order to receive God’s best it does entail…having a heart of contentment and embracing it vs. hating it. Many of us know that being content is not [...]

Rise Up and BE a Woman God Can Use

I want to start this post off by saying that it’s a process. We don’t become who God wants us to be overnight. It takes time. So I want to encourage you to be patient with yourself and God’s purposes in your life. But know that He’s got a plan. And it’s GOOD! Just know that part of that plan to becoming a woman that He can use is bearing much fruit. Listen. I know that I have written on fruit (i.e. godly character) before, [...]

What Are YOU Called to Do? Take the Self-Examination Test

Where are you right now? Do you know your purpose? Do you believe you’re doing what you’re called to do? Or are you still in a place of waiting? These are all questions geared to examine where you are in this season of your life. Things are wrapping up in the world around us and we really need to be walking in our purpose or walking towards it by the time Jesus Christ comes back again. It’s time to get serious and prepare yourself in [...]

Let God Use You

You were born with gifts and talents. My question today is, “Are you using them or are you burying them?” And if you are using them, are you giving it 100%? And are you using them cheerfully? The reason why these questions are being asked today is because God wants to use you, but He needs your full participation. The Bible tells us in Colossians 3:23-24, “Work hard and cheerfully at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for [...]
