The Move - positioning yourself to receive all that God has for you.

Two of my favorite Scriptures and now mantras states,  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen... But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." (Hebrews 11:1, 6 KJV)
It is my belief that our successes are predicated on how much we believe God to do or move in our lives.
The question is not can God do it, because in an inkling God can change our situations. The question up for discussion is do we believe that God will do it? Do you???
I consider Styling Purpose to be a gift from God. Now why would God entrust me with such a precious gift, who knows. I'm still trying to figure that part out, but I digress lol. Because of his loving kindness towards me I have given my company back God. In my many conversations with God, I told Him that I am solely dependent on Him. If this is what I am supposed to do, then you will provide for me, open doors that I can't open, because if you don't do it, it cant be done. Period, no buts, no commas, no semi colons. That's my reality! Have you ever been totally depended on someone... It's a scary feeling. To totally put your trust in someone, means that you are fully relying on their strengths and capabilities to fulfill a task or assignment that will ultimately benefit you and most likely not them #ohboy.  We see that many relationships fail because of a lack of trust and communication. For the past year I have learned to totally depend on God. To trust that He has my best interest in mind. It wasn't like I didn't depend on Him before, but I didn't consider Him my entire source. I was depended on resources (people, jobs) to give me what I thought I needed and wanted. These past couple of weeks we have literally traveled across the US during The Move Tour and I have been privileged to see some of God's many wonders and works. I have witnessed small ministries do amazing things.Although Styling Purpose is a small company in number we have been blessed to host three fashion shows, work with some amazing people  as their fashion consultant and go on a national tour with a Christian recording artist as her wardrobe stylist. I only mention our success to convey the fact that God is able to do much only if we are willing to let go, listen, be available and follow. 
 I do believe that  Styling Purpose is impetus of something much bigger for me. I'm moving forward and positioning myself to receive all that God has for me. How about you???

Styling Without Fear

Styling Purpose has the excellent opportunity to travel on tour with Christian recording artist Giel as her wardrobe stylist for The Move Tour. Whoop, whoop *does the thank you Jesus dance*. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I couldn't afford to miss. As Giel's wardrobe stylist I am responsible for her show performance look. This is very important and should be carefully orchestrated, because her clothing should not distract the audience from her ministry. The mission of Styling Purpose is to create a style that is effortless, irreplaceable and modish individually customized for each customer. Understanding my clients brand and personality will allow me to achieve this goal. I am blessed and humbled to be apart of #TeamGiel. God will open doors that no one else can open. As I get closer to His presence He reveals more of who He is to me that no one else can replace. I expect great things from God and I attempting to do great things for God.
