Faith: Believing the Impossible

Faith_Empowering Modern Mom_Rebecca Mogg

Faith. It's a small word. It's one I never gave much thought until I found myself in situations where my own power and control couldn't get me through. Sometimes we don't discover the power of faith until we've been forced to examine and embrace it.

Faith isn't logical. When your back is against the wall, it's believing and embracing the impossible. 

On my desk is a little bag of mustard seeds. I received it at a business conference a few years ago. A sticker adhered to the bag shares Matthew 17:20. If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.

Here's where we misstep. You aren't supposed to move the mountains. No. That doesn't happen through your power. You're supposed to believe they will be moved, ask that they be moved, and trust that God will move them for you. He'll line up the right people or series of events. He'll guide your moves. You aren't doing anything through your own power. It's all through God's.

If you're dealing with something that seems impossible or if you keep coming up against a wall, surrender it and have faith. It might not work out how you want it to work out, but with God, it will work out for the highest good. Surrendering is a daily act. Faith is sometimes minute to minute. 

How do you know you have faith? It's when you feel joy in the midst of turmoil. It's when you feel and act as if the miracle has already happened. In your joy, express gratitude for the miracle. You will receive guidance and unexpected coincidences and things that can only be described as miracles.

Have faith. Believe in miracles. Give God the upper hand. He's waiting for you to hand over control.

After almost eight years as a well-paid, white collar career woman; my family's principal breadwinner (by a long shot); two babies; postpartum depression combined with emotional abuse; a loving, supportive husband who was always working his demanding job both on site and at home; and only one real vacation (leave was hoarded for family commitments and maternity leave), I was DONE. I was tired of being told I could have it all and, in the same breath, that I could not. I was at a crossroads: continue careening down a path that would surely destroy me and even end my marriage OR make changes that gave me time freedom, work/life balance, a happier family, and a happier ME.

I chose CHANGE. I walked away from that demanding, soul crushing arena to embrace my true self and create the life of my dreams. I left so I could travel when I CHOSE to travel, not when someone demanded it. I walked away from other people dictating when I could be a mother so I could decide that for my family. I chose to be a business woman on my own terms. At the end of the day, I walked away to empower not only myself, but women everywhere.

My main business is coaching others in weight loss, healthy aging, wealth creation, and performance. This lifestyle site is my way of sharing my God-led journey in hopes of inspiring, motivating, emboldening, and empowering each of you. 

So here I am: sharing my truth and relationship with the divine through my family and everyday life. I'm here to share love. It's a bold move in an age where talking about God is almost taboo. The last thing I want to do is isolate anyone. But He has called me to this and I have learned to do as He tells me to do! Most days anyway. I am, after all, incredibly human. Ha!
