5 years ago God dropped some things in my spirit.
He told me it would involve the following things:
- It would be a Free Event
- Where Women Would Gather
- & God’s Spirit of Joy would flow
I started planning an event for January 2017 – I think I titled it “A Night of Joy” but I talked myself out of it.
“Who would come to something I planned?!”
I mean – “Who am I?”
“What do I have to offer anyone?”
& more importantly- “I’m so depressed – How the heck can I speak about God’s Joy in my darkest season?!”
God kept nudging me for the next year and a half to plan the event and carry out the vision he placed in my heart. 💛
In 2018 – A fearful, insecure and un-joyful woman (at the time) planned and launched “Being Joyfully You.”
I literally had no idea what I was doing. To this day I don’t even know how I was able to finance it all by myself and still pay my bills.
After a successful launch – I told God “I’m one and done!”
“I did what you asked me to do!” 😊 Now I can rest.
I was very content and proud of myself for yielding and being obedient and genuinely was “naturally” satisfied with doing one event. I’ll repeat the last part of that statement: “naturally satisfied”
God’s Reply was – “ Nope, you’re just getting started!” 🙄🤦🏾♀️😩
2019 rolled in rather quickly so I planned and noticed growth immediately. More people were inquiring. More people showed up. I actually had a team of people that partnered with me and volunteered their time.
I was more confident and in a better financial state to plan it, so “Being Joyfully You – Year 2- The Unveiling” occurred on March 30th, 2019.
It was a beautiful March day and about 60 women were in attendance.
Now we are in Year 3. There was no tugging from God – I just immediately started planning it after Year 2 ended; I literally started planning the day of.
I knew that the event was growing so I started saving money to properly finance everything needed for Year 3.
“Being Joyfully You – Year 3 – Friendship” is 22 days away.
My Faith is growing and the planning is running a little more smoothly.
There is definitely a bit of anxiety because I truly want each woman in attendance to leave in a better place than when they entered.
I desire for woman to connect with each other.
I desire for women to speak and share freely because they are in a safe place to do so.
I desire for the Spirit of Joy to flow. 🙌🏾
In Faith – I speak and declare that “Being Joyfully You – Year 3” is going to be an amazing event for all!
To those whom will be in attendance- I can’t wait to meet you.
To those who are unable to attend or are on the waiting list for “Being Joyfully You – Year 3 – I am planning more events within the same year! 😉
I declare that “Being Joyfully You” will be a Non-Profit Organization that helps spread Joy to others in need. 🙌🏾
For those who have a ministry, a plan, an idea …. or anything that God placed in your heart and you are afraid to act on it – Just Do It!
God will truly see you through.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 reads – There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.
This is YOUR SEASON – Step out of Fear and Walk boldly into your purpose.
Signed with Joy,
Joyfully Chrissy Lee 💛🌻
I love . It is inspiring and encouraging.
