 A Year of Obedience and Faith

Well, it has been One year since the beginning of Tenacious Talisha. After a long year of transition, I feel my calling and purpose is to share my story. I have always been a person that believes in being tenacious and a planner. However, over the last year, I have learned that no matter how much I plan, God's timing is always better than my own and that sometimes it is better to take life daily. This next year of Tenacious Talisha will hold an ending to my Master's Degree program and my second year as a merchant. I often wonder if all these stories, whether long or short have inspired you the reader. I am thankful for everyone who discovers this page, and I pray you are left wanting more of Jesus.

Post: Welcome

Good things happen.

How many times have you sat in your most comfy chair and wondered, "where is this life headed"? I can not count as of lately how many times I have had that thought. Some days are complex, but we have to remember, "Good things happen." The best thing that has happened as of lately is this page you are reading. I started my 7th MBA class in August, and in my current course, we have had to complete a course project. Well, this blog was supposed to be my project until I realized I wanted to create a place where I could go to share my story, not be graded. Sorry, Dr. Parmer. I must give credit where credit is done, and if she hadn't given me a syllabus with Wix as a free platform, this blog would have never happened. Good things happen. So, let me continue. This day has been filled with emotions.

I am currently recovering from multiple losses over two years. This month alone, my family has lost my granddad and great uncle, and great aunt due to the Virus. Not only that but in May sold our beautiful home and moved back to the first home we ever bought. Next, in June, my husband was laid off after 12 1/2 years of employment at the same employer due to a lack of funding. Next, I was recently laid off by my employer. So yes, a refinement process. I can say I have some peace, hurt, and depression, but I know God is in control.

I feel like we have been waiting for God to reveal to us where this journey is going. I heard a song by Danny Gokey, "Stay Strong." I can't listen to this song without believing its words, "I count it joy when I am tested because you bring beauty from my pain. It's never wasted." I genuinely believe this down to the roots of my soul. My prayer for you if your facing a similar season is to keep believing, keep reading God's word, and keep believing in yourself. Look to God, and he will direct your paths. We can make a difference in someone else life if we are transparent and honest enough to share the truths, the hurts, the pain, and the tears with others. God gives us all a journey to share as motivation with others. Our journey may all be different, but the reward comes from the resilience of surviving and persevering. "The Journey is the reward."
