I am so glad that God doesn’t call the qualified but He qualifies the called! I am one that may feel like puking my guts up before an event. But then once the execution is over, I may bawl like a baby! As much as I am thankful for the grit in me to undertake a task, I am much more grateful for the grace of God that carries me through a task. I don’t take this lightly.

Be yourself, nobody else is better qualified than you.

This weekend, I had a wonderful opportunity in sharing my heart at Howard Partridge’s Round Table. I was blessed, not only by the warm reception, but especially by the men in the conference being so responsive. Many voiced to me how touched they were by my words, as they reflected on their own situations or someone dear to them.

Regardless of faith, status, education or race, we’ve all felt discouraged, rejected, abandoned or betrayed at one point or another. We’ve all had our dreams smashed, our dignity shot, our hearts torn, and our hope lost.

If my life of peril can become a life of promise, yours can too. I believe your yesterdays does not have to define your todays. Just remember: You may not be where you want to be today, but thank God you are not where you once were.

  1. Congratulations Mary! I love your line ‘ Your yesterdays don’t have to define your todays!’ God bless. 🙂 ❤

  2. “You may not be where you want to be today, but thank God you are not where you once were.”

    This is a good way to view life. Congratulations!

  3. I’m glad to see the men in the audience were so responsive.

    • Yes indeed, Sandra. I mention topics in my story that resonates with all genders, and what man doesn’t have a woman in his life that matters to him where he won’t think that “Running in Heels” will not inspire?

  4. Awesome, Mary Ann!!! New opportunities opening up….

  5. Congratulations! ❤ ❤ ❤
