Living on a Prayer ....

“Living on a Prayer” ...


💚



Those words hold more than most realize ... it’s not just a song that randomly hits home when I hear it blasted on a radio every now and then ... it’s something I constantly think about.



Many know “our story” ... many know I worked in finance (at amazing offices with the best coworkers possible!!) for a decade. I thought God had dropped me there to be a greater asset having an off the farm job - going through the motions. Pushing my limits - trying to be successful in another way - for all the wrong reasons ... being a financial advisor wasn’t at all what God Was wanting.... and it took me having a mental breakdown to know that.


🌱


After a pretty rough 6 weeks - we made the choice for me to step away from the Office. Work full time on the farm. It was a challenge that I thought I was fully prepared for. Growing up a farmers daughter, being married to Jason already for 5 years - I really thought I could just leave the heels in the closet for my boots & jeans every day.

I was not prepared at all to be working full time with Jason - every single day. It was a whole knew learning curve. Then add being a “Stay Home Mom” in the mix ... I’ve never been home with the kids except during our 4 months of maternity leave when Jae was born .. I was living in a constant state of Prayer & crazy.


🙏🏻


Prayers I had asked God to figure out - prayers to help me find my purpose. Prayers that still today aren’t quite answered. And that’s okay. Because it’s on Gods time. Not my time. We’re living on a prayer!


And I’m living the best part of my life .. NOW. It wasn’t always pretty smiles & cute calves. It was a really hard adjustment. And a lot of tears and mistakes along the path to get here.... sharing our farm story. Sharing failures & tears - blood & cheers along the way...

And a lot of tears and mistakes along the path to get here.... sharing our farm story. Sharing failures & tears - blood & cheers along the way... I am far from perfect. I’ve created mistakes bigger than I ever thought could be worked out.

I’ve sat in the horse barn broken more times than not- only for God to say “child stop & see the light” ... I’ve hid from my church family - not feeling like I should be there. That i had become this huge failure at Gods purpose. Because that’s what the Devil does. He creates this imagine & pushes you & goads you ... and steals your soul ... and he will continue every single day. If you let him.


I sat in church yesterday- just listening & praying. When our pastor said “Pray from Your Heart. Not your Mind” ... know the difference. God speaks to your soul.

What sets YOUR soul on fire?!? What has God stuck in there that YOU think is unattainable??? What doors has he opened especially in the last 18 months of the World Situation... that you‘ve said “that cant ever be possible” ... BECAUSE I WAS THERE .. I said those words to Jason, to my family - to God himself for a year.


I could not leave Jones. That was we’re I was lead to be - I was getting my licenses. I was on to bigger things inside that Company. I was not listening to my Path - I was trying to create my own. And I failed.

I have failed in so many ways that God still resets me on His Path. I keep living on a Prayer - waiting for His timing... I share my farm story - I AgVocate. Because I am lead to anymore. It’s what speaks to my soul right here...


And In the midst of craziness, we tend to feel our prayers and cries to God aren’t being heard because we may not see an immediate change in our situations. This is just a lie -a misunderstanding of how our relationship with God actually should be.


We are to put our all our trust into God’s hands, after all, “God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything.” 1 John 3:20. And just because we do not see an immediate change doesn’t mean God never heard you, because He has!



keep pushing forward. Keep writing down those goals & prayers. Keep living on a prayer !!!!!!


“ For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.” - Jeremiah 29:11-12






Looking back ... 3 years ago. A lot has changed in such a short period of time.


Good. Bad. Better. Hard. Rough. Tougher.


Each new calf is a reminder. Each tractor ride with either the kids or Jason... my prayers were answered.


Sharing our farm story here - AGVocating to the World .. is only a small part of that journey.


Thanks for sticking around for the ride! To all the new faces around - welcome to our crazy!
