When I found Senegence (or should I say when Senegence found ME), I was in a very broken place. A place I knew that the Lord had allowed me to find myself in. In the midst of what looked to me as brokenness, He saw beautiful refinement through the process. Had I not found myself in that place of desiring for so much more than where I was then, I can’t help but wonder if I would be here today, sitting in the midst of such ridiculous blessing!
To the one who has found herself in her own pile of brokenness, this one’s for you, because sweet friend, there is hope yet for you too. Right in the middle of your mess. Let me explain.
Before I decided to step out into unknown waters and pursue this venture in Senegence, I struggled. I struggled with feeling that financial strain on my family. As a mama of two at that time with one on the way, I longed for days where we didn’t have to fight so hard to live always carrying that burden of paying the bills and having money in the bank. I’ve been there. I know that burden you carry. I also know that if the Lord brought crazy wild doors of opportunity to me, He wants to do it for as well.
Within three months of falling in love with Lipsense and the Senegence line, I found myself in absolute disbelief. What had only been simply a hobby for me was, before my eyes, turning into something so much more than that. My first blessing?
An ACTUAL car.
Apparently, I had shared (so effortlessly, by the way) so much of my love for the product that my sales and earnings reaped the beautiful blessing of earning my very own CAR.
Okay. So, let’s stop for a minute here and really think about this. In America ALONE, over 107 MILLION people are in debt due to a car loan. That’s the norm these days it seems, and yet, here I am, driving down the road in a debt FREE minivan! Not only did I get the blessing of earning a car, but I got the beautiful opportunity of picking out the car that would work best for MY family!
I mean, seriously. Pinch me.
Just 15 months ago I was wondering how I was going to make it in the business I was in. Depressed, confused, lost and just plain broken, I needed an absolute blessing to fall from Heaven.
It was the Lord who blessed my business. It was HE who brought the sweet connections. It was HIS words that poured from my mouth as I shared with others the love and joy I had found in this new exciting journey of mine and it was the Lord who took my weary, broken self and gave me rest.
Yep, even rest financially through a debt free minivan, ladies and gentlemen.
To the one who has found herself in her own pile of brokenness, this one’s for you, because sweet friend, there is hope yet for you too.
Right in the middle of your mess.
