Earlier this week I was looking back at my email archives and I’ve clearly had this same email account for FOREVER. I was browsing my folders and noticed the folder that was labeled “PPS.” What’s PPS you may ask? It’s Perfect Planning Solutions. Can you guys believe that I started documenting my events in 2007! Remind you I said documenting them, but I had been planning parties for years- all through high school. Some years ago as a college project I was asked to develop a business plan. Well, I knew that I loved event and wedding planning and thought it was only fitting to design my business plan based off of my dream business. At the time, I couldn’t think of what I wanted to name it. I thought about using my own name, something like Tamara’s Events & Weddings; but that just didn’t seem fitting. So in the midst of creating this business plan I called up my Girlfriends! One of which I was rooming with the others we called on three-way LOL. I explained my business plan and immediately we started brainstorming this MASTER BUSINESS as partners! We finally settled on the name Perfect Planning Solutions. We believed (still do) that we have the perfect solutions to all your planning needs. So what am I getting at? Just when I think that my dream is only a dream God reminds me that He’s given me a GIFT. A spiritual gift of service, that no one else can take away from me. That no matter how many other people have the same sort of gift. That this is mine! Undefined by anyone else, unlike anyone else, that my level of creativity is not and cannot be hindered! He blessed me with it and only He can destroy or manifest it into something beyond my wildest imagination. Just when I think that maybe I’m not cut out for this- because I’m not well-known, certified by paper, have a warehouse stored with inventory, or have the means to support a full-time staff, He shows me that its still my gift! And that I must continue to use it!
I was created to create because I’m the daughter of the Creator. ~Tamara Watts
So today, I challenge you to challenge God and yourself in dusting off your gifts and bless the world with all you have to offer. Never let the world tell you you’re not good enough, you’re not the best, because you are! Do you know who your Father is? He’s promised you that you can do ALL things through Him! Be inspired ladies and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and into a new dimension.
Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created. ~Esther 4:14
Have a wonderful weekend ladies!
I come to you today as humbly as I know how. First before I ask for anything I come to give you all the glory, honor and the praise, for sparing my life, for your grace and your mercy, for your unfailing love. Father you are so amazing and there is none like you. You are a good, good Father and I would be nothing without you. Where I have fallen short, I ask that You would forgive me. I know that I do not get it right all the time and have disappointed you on more than one occasion yet You never left my side and for that I am grateful. You said in Your Word that You would never leave me nor forsake me. You will never give up on me and just that in itself is enough to keep pressing on. I have so much on my heart that I want to say to you, but I just don’t know where to begin. I’m tired and feel as though I’m in the midst a moment of weakness. In your Word You told us that your grace is sufficient and in my weakness You are strong. I need Your strength now Lord. I need guidance and direction. Lord I believe in Your power, in Your might and I believe that which You have told me. I believe Lord, but today I pray that you help me in my unbelief. Help me to rid my head of thoughts of doubt and feelings of failure. Help me to look toward the hills which cometh my help, for I know that my help comes from none other than You. Today has been a day to say the least and in this moment I know that I do not need to turn to anyone else but to You. Father I need to hear from You, I need to hear Your voice, I need that peace that passes all understanding, I need to feel the embrace and comfort of Your precious Holy Spirit. You said in your Word come to me all that are burdened and heavy laden, and well that is exactly how I feel. So here I am with arms out stretched wide as I surrender it all to You. I’m tired of trying to figure it out on my own, to find the solution without seeking You first. Again I ask for Your forgiveness for thinking I could handle it on my own. I’m done I don’t want it any more. Its all Yours Lord.
As I type this prayer to you today Lord, I even stop in the midst of my moment to pray for my Girlfriends as they read along in prayer and agreement. If there is a lady out there with the same feeling of despair, I ask that You grant her the same peace of mind that I am praying for myself. Lord encourage her heart like only You can, assure her that You are in control, have never failed her and will never fail her. Ease her mind oh God of the those things that are pulling her away from You. Draw her nearer to you blessed Lord. I ask that you bless her with miracles, signs and wonders and that when You do, she will run and tell that which You have done to encourage the heart of another.
God we thank You in advance for granting this petition and request and we trust You now even the more and thank you for the reassurance you have placed in our hearts. Where would we be without you oh God. I pray that I nor that lady reading this prayer ever have to experience the feeling of You not being there. Lord I love You and thank you so, so much for your listening ear. Now Lord as I close my prayer I now sit patiently waiting to hear from You.
In Jesus most precious and Holy name I pray,
“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord my strength and my redeemer.” Psalm 19:14
