God had other plans

There always seems to be a story or a lesson behind my products. The coasters are no different.

I believe that it was after my Birthday that I decided for the summer that I was only going to be making pillows and t-shirts especially since party t-shirts have become very popular. I wanted to make sure I was doing everything right.  So I made an announcement about it on social media.  God must have had a great laugh because somehow after my announcement I started feeling like something was missing, like my little spark had gone. 
Then out of the blue I saw something about making coasters. I researched it and everything. I even told a co-worker as well. But I was hesitant to act on it. Because I didn't want to put anymore pressure on myself. So I avoided buying the materials.  I would put them in my cart at work. But by the end of the day they were back in the shelf. This happened a lot. This coaster idea wasn't like the other ideas I have had it lingered. I even told that same co worker "the coasters are haunting me" She said "but the stuff". I put it in the cart but once again it went back. 
GOD stepped in! He touched something in me 1 day as I was scrolling the internet. I got the materials and then ordered the rest online. My co worker laughed as I told her what I had done and said " For someone who didn't want to do it, you are sure going all out!"
After I got my first set of materials I immediately went to work. I absolutely loved making them.
I didn't adjust my pervious statement on social media. I just posted results. 
If I would have listened to fear. I would have never experienced the happiness I have.
Fear will try to stop and/or stagnate your progress. Let God be the ruler of your life. Stop worrying about your plans and make sure you are doing what he has called you to do.
