What To Do When You Don’t Know What’s Next

I remember when I first changed careers, people had a lot of questions.

What are you gonna do next?

What are your plans?

Are you going to design?

Are you going to get a fashion job?

So you’re blogging now?

How are you going to work with brands if you talk about your faith?

Why do you write such long captions on Instagram?


Truth was, I had no idea what I was doing; I just knew I was following God’s lead. When He told me to quit, I quit. Move, I moved. Talk to this person, I reached out. Email him, I started typing. Ask her this, I opened my mouth. Stay here, I didn’t move. Work harder, I put my hand to the plow. I did every single command and because of that, I’m a living testimony that God will come through for you. The vision may not always be clear but you never have to explain that to anyone.


“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬
Faith is everything you are believing God for. Faith is believing in what you can’t see. When you have no evidence of what you’re hoping for and you choose TO STILL believe, that’s faith.


Keep doing what God told you to do; even if you have to do it blindly. Keep chasing the vision even when you can’t see it. Keep moving forward even when the path isn’t clear.


Here’s the hope: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Hebrews 11:1


He rewards you when you seek Him.


There’s a familiar Bible story of a woman who’d been bleeding for 12 years. She’d been cast out from society; no one wanted anything to do with her and she was at a point of desperation. Instead of thinking: how will they look at me ? What will the people think? She left her home on a mission. She stepped out of what was comfortable but also probably keeping her sick. She stretched out her hand, touched Jesus, AND was healed.


And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.”Luke 9:48

Don’t expect people to understand how you’re moving when God didn’t give them your vision; He gave it to you.

Enough of the over-explaining. How are you going to explain something you can’t fully understand?

Make your moves.

Don’t be afraid if things don’t work out at first.

Be consistent.

Foster relationships.

Let them catch up later.

Although at times it feels uncomfortable, it’s okay to not understand everything that God’s doing,

Be Blessed.

    Thank you for this post. It stirred something in me and reminded me of a phrase a pastor mentioned in a sermon, “All you have, is all you need. So move.”
