Ups and Downs...Where I chose to focus my energy!

So I had an audition for a TV show that I had literally been praying for for like 6 months at least!!!! Well, I got the audition finally. But, I didn't get the role.  And truthfully, I think I did a pretty good job, but not a GREAT job.  I fumbled over a few words a couple of times during one of the takes.  I recovered from it in the second take.  Still and all, good is good...but GREAT is bigger and better and stands out over just being good. 
Admittedly, I was a bit let down because I didn't book the job. It bothered me for at least 8 hours after learning the news...and I had to tell myself "I decide to invest my energy on the positive"! I immediately begin thanking God for just getting me the interview, if nothing else. 

Anyway, the very next day, I got an audition for another Co-Star role on a different TV show.  I ran into an actor and we somehow started conversing about the auditions-I think he asked me if I had heard about them, so I told him yeah, but that I didn't book the job.  I told him that I was good, but not great.  And he quickly reminded me that, sometimes we are GREAT, but are not RIGHT so not to sweat...and that's fine and all, but in my heart of hearts, I knew I was right for this role, but not GREAT!

Anyway, needless to say, this time I booked the role! I was right for it and I was GREAT at the audition.  I felt it too.

Yay! God is truthfully good. He blessed me with a talent. He gave me an anointing. He gave me favor, and he opened a door for me.

Persistence and Faith in Action Go Hand in Hand

A Women of Power friend and I are reading a chapter on Persistence in Think and Grow Rich. Well, I often like to find scriptures that go hand and hand with self-help books.  It's the combination that works as inspiration for me.  I found this scripture that easily pares with the chapter on "Persistence" from a Godly perspective and thought I would share it. It also goes hand and hand with "FaithinAction", a #Girltalk topic that I, and a few friends of mine from my Mastermind Group @womenofpower4 had on Twitter recently. 

Persistence with what we are attempting to do in our careers is a must!  And it will get us far in the world and with God!  We can not just believe alone, we have to DO...ACT on what we want. 
Jesus told them a story showing that it was necessary for them to pray consistently and never quit. He said, “There was once a judge in some city who never gave God a thought and cared nothing for people. A widow in that city kept after him: ‘My rights are being violated. Protect me!’ “He never gave her the time of day. But after this went on and on he said to himself, ‘I care nothing what God thinks, even less what people think. But because this widow won’t quit badgering me, I’d better do something and see that she gets justice—otherwise I’m going to end up beaten black-and-blue by her pounding.’” Then the Master said, “Do you hear what that judge, corrupt as he is, is saying? So what makes you think God won’t step in and work justice for his chosen people, who continue to cry out for help? Won’t he stick up for them? I assure you, he will. He will not drag his feet. But how much of that kind of persistent faith will the Son of Man find on the earth when he returns?” (Luke 18:1-8 MSG)
