Owning Your Next Level Confidence

As I sit here taking in the excitement of this amazing new year God has blessed us to see, I am preparing myself to completely own my next level of confidence. In order for us to continue walking in our purpose the way God wants us to we’ve got to own this thing! Here are a few tips on how we can do just that.

Purpose – every day we wake up is full of purpose. There isn’t a day that we don’t wake up on purpose for a purpose. Realize that.

We are walking power – the power of God lives in us! Leverage that power to accomplish awesomeness.

Look good, feel good – never underestimate the power of a great fit and amazing face beat.

Work hard, pray hard – enough said

No weapon formed against you will prosper – weapons will form, but they won’t prosper. Know that!

That’s it. Let’s go conquer this new year in the name of Jesus!
