Live with Passion & Trials and Tribulations

cropped-wpid-passion1.jpg

Since the launching of “Women of Virtue Transitional Foundation, Inc”it has been such a challenge to say the very least. Several years ago, I realized my passion and my purpose, to help Domestic Violence survivors and their children with support services, programs, referral services, mentorship, and advocacy. In making this decision, I opted to invest much of my 401K funds into backing this purpose and also working as full-time manager for a nonprofit for nearly 13-years, single-parenting a very beautiful and rambunxious 5 year old, authoring two books, and single-handed finding my way in society which will allow me to stand on the shoulders of my forefather and foremothers that made change in our community and society.

A few weeks ago, I learned that I was overworked, overwhelmed and began to question whether I should pursue this purpose God crafted for me. Discouraged by the lack of support from my board and support team, slow ticket sales, and stress that slowly began to detioriate my mental health, not to mentiom my inability to connect with my father, God on a spiritual basis. I felt that I was hitting a wall, one that made me question the timing and purpose of my life.

However, I shared a very intimate and vulnerable conversation with a dear friend that made me realize that, you go through the hard times when the devil knows you are doing something powerful and in favor of God. The enemy was attacking my mental and faith and in doing so I was falling to pieces. In a moment’s time, someone prayed for me, my mother liste me up and mailed me bible verses to guide me through my hardships.

I had to step out on faith, maintain in the lane that God has laid out for me, and move forward towards what and where I am supposed to be in my passion.

Of course, we all have goals and dreams, but it can be difficult to stick with them especially when we focus on the negative implications associated with launching an organization as a sole individual. People often say, “I start with good intentions, but I can’t seem to maintain my consistency for a long period of time.” and that is where I was a week ago. It was hard but despite it all, God prevailed. I am growing and each challenge has strengthened, challenged, and mystified me in away that I have fallen, but I refused to fall down and stay.

Where are you in your purpose? Dont be discouraged.. surround yourself with people who love, support, and understand your purpose.

Always,

Sonya McKinzie
