A little over 2 years ago, I was requested by my manager to come into a meeting at the school in Atlanta where I was working at the time. It wasn’t my normally scheduled work day so my interest was piqued. The Holy Spirit whispered ever so softly in my ear to take a box with me because it would be my last day. I went in, worked a full day and sat in meetings that seemed to have nothing to do with me so I began to question what I “heard.”
As I was packing up to leave for the day, my manager called me into his office and told me that due to budget cuts, my position was being eliminated effective immediately. I cried – not tears of sadness, but of joy and praise because I DID, indeed hear from the Lord! Yaaassss! I thanked my manager for the opportunity, headed back to my office to pack it up and practically skipped to my car. My happiness was short lived because I quickly realized that it was 2 weeks before Christmas and was without a job. I asked God what I was going to do. And without hesitation, I heard Him again whisper sweetly in my ear, “you’re not going to work for another person. You will have multiple businesses.”
Fast forward to today…I am the owner of Vik VarWoo, LLC, Viktory Kouture and SOWN Social Media. Am I rolling in dough? Chile, I WISH! Am I where I want to be? Nope. Has it been a struggle?#TheStruggleIsForRealForReal. But has God kept me and my girls in the midst of it all? Absolutely!
All that to say…when Life gives you lemons, God expects you to make lemonade…AND here’s the gotcha, He’ll give you EVERYTHING you need to make the best ding dilly lemonade you’ve ever tasted. #BoutDatLemonadeFaithLife
