Fearlessly Authentic



This last week my mind is running non stop on marketing.  I am really able to concentrate on my real estate career  with Keller Williams since the farm house remodel is almost behind us, THANK GOD ~

I have heard such encouragement this week since I have signed on with Keller Williams. I love the people. I love the encouragement these amazing people I surround myself with bring to the table. I love that they believe they will continue to rise in the market place  because they believe in lifting up their agents and training and educating them to be the best they can be. Not just in real estate but they encourage you to have a joy filled life.

This morning, as I am focusing on a marketing plan for my business and learning so many new procedures, I am reminded of who I am  in Christ.  There is no better place to find that truth than the word of God. The truth is,  we all  have special gifts inside of us,  hand-tailored by God for you and me to bring to the table that no one else brings. You’re the only one whose got that “it” from God. ~

I read something that I wrote some time ago. Funny, how my own thoughts can speak to me in a totally different way because of the different season I am in right now. I thought I would share a lot of it again.

Following God is like copying the work of a master artist: only God gives each of us different colors and medias to copy it with. No one has all the right materials and all the right abilities. Some of us may have to paint ours entirely in blue, some of us may not have a pencil to get the general shape in place. But sometimes we can share our materials to help others complete their picture.

When we surrender our lives to Christ, we are surrendering our ways to line up with his ways. God uses the unique blueprint he designed from the beginning , the unique gifts he gave only you to fulfill His purpose and His plan for your life as well as the body of Christ.  We need to share our gifts and quit trying to share gifts that were not ours to share.

We should all learn from our competitors but never copy. In business, we need to find something that sets us apart from our competition. Uniquely different but oh so marketable.

We should be focusing on our walk  and  not someone else’s walk. At the end of our life when we stand before Almighty God, we will be answering for what we did with the gifts and abilities he gave us NOT others. There is no win in comparison. It is a trap. It is an outward characteristic of an inward heart problem. We have to get to the root.

Be Fearless. Be Fearlessly You ~ Imitation is not flattery, it really is a lack of creativity. Our God that we serve makes no mistakes. He is the creative master painter. No two sunrises or sunsets are ever the same. The colors are vivid, each with its own shades, own shape and it is beautiful breathtaking. No two handprints are the same. No two fingerprints are the same. God made us all different for a reason. To not embrace ourselves is to not embrace the creation of the Creator.

He knew us in our Mothers womb. He designed each one of us to be wonderfully, fearfully and beautifully made. As the song Wonderfully Made by Sarah Harts says,” If we could just see just for one day, the way that he sees us.” It would truly change everything.

Friends, we TRULY rise by lifting others. I am so thankful that our vibes attract our tribe. I am surrounded by a fierce tribe. They inspire me to be the best me I can be ~

  1. Darla,You write beautifully from your heart. Be sure you use that gift in your marketing. The best marketing you can have is the personal recommendation‎ of your clients, customers and your best customers, other agents!! You will be successful because you have a servant heart. You will be successful because you genuinely love people ( even when they wound you). You will be successful because JESUS is the center of your life and all can see His reflection in you. Finally, you will not allow the world to determine your success…you are not of this world but you ( like me) are in this world! Stay focused and watch what happens….I am cheering for you my friend!Love you! Hope you and Don have a blessed Easter!Jennifer Sent from my BlackBerry 10 smartphone on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.
