When Your Faith is Tested


I became a full-time working mom last year...in Real Estate. I've become a sponge, soaking up every bit of knowledge I can.

It has been exciting, hard, and some days discouraging. This business is tough and so very far out of my comfort zone.

There have been moments I've said,  I don't want to do this anymore, it's too hard...too much.


I've had this verse from James rolling around in my head, James 1:2-4: "Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.  For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.  So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing." (What doesn't kill me makes me stronger, right?!)

James reminds me each challenge is an opportunity to grow, develop, and persevere.

I won't give up or give into fear, but you know, it would be super easy to!

As I was thinking of what I would like to share with you today, I remembered how the past six months have tested my endurance. I had days when other agents began their realtoring (that's a word in the Real Estate world ;) ) the same time I did. They would get leads that actually led somewhere. I would force myself to be happy for them, while inside feeling the sting of jealousy and wondering when it would be my turn.

And while it did eventually become my turn I thought, you know, I need to share what it takes to get disheartened and give up on your dreams and I think I've really narrowed it down...I came up with four practical ways.

What are my four ways?
