"Take delight in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart" Psalms 37:4
God's Got It. He has "it", he is ready to give "it" to you when you delight yourself in Him. Ask yourself, "What is my 'it'?"
Wilisha's "it" was finding out during the middle of completing her MBA she suffered from a rare form of cancer called Essential thrombocythemia, ET. "The most common symptoms of essential thrombocythemia include headache, lightheadedness, vision changes, and tingling, numbness or burning pain in the hands and feet. Essential thrombocythemia most often occurs in people over age 50 and is more common in women." (mayo clinic) So how does a thriving 29 year old suffer from an uncommon disorder that is usually found in people over the age of 50? Because "God's Got It".
I completed the MBA program with Wilisha. As I complained about my struggles as a small business owner, how I wanted to give up on this MBA because I didn't have the time to focus, she encouraged me to keep pushing. She called me to make sure I went to class, turned in my assignments, cause she knew all my time and energy was going into Fancy. Little did I know, she was really sick. I listened to her tell me symptoms, I watched her suffer from them, I observed how she was being treated on the job all because of this disorder, but I honestly didn't realize that she was really going through. We all go through rough seasons in our lives, but we focus so much on whats wrong with ours that we never become fully aware that I could be worse.
In those seasons God says, "I've Got It." Everything we go through is only a set up for what God has really prepared for us. Wilisha's "it" was believing that "God's Got It". He had "it" when she was diagnosed. He had "it" as she suffered. He had "it" when she couldn't work. He knew she needed a break, and He had "it". "It" was the renewal of her health, the healing of her spirit, the motivation in her heart, the removal of distractions, and the closing a few doors to open new ones. Not one time did I ever hear her complain.
In her own words:
What are three words that describe to you the best?: Strength, Faith, Ambitious
Name one goal you would like to accomplish in the next 12 months and why.: Finally coming into my purpose, what God has in his plans for me to do, and be successful in it. No joy greater than doing what you are meant to do and thriving in it. I would love to travel and explore a place I've never been. I love to travel.
Describe what makes you Fancy.: My strength to keep going no matter what is thrown my way with the ability to keep smiling through it all because my faith foundation lets me know everything will be ok. My motto is God's Got It. I have dreams, goals, and ambitions I will keep striving and pushing until I accomplish them! I am loving the skin I'm in and the woman I've become, it makes me stronger and happier.
Who inspires you to succeed and why?: The kids that are in my life (little cousins, God kids, step kids). I push to keep going to accomplish things because I want to be an example to them by doing things to show them it's possible. If I can do it so can they. I don't tell them things, I show them by being a living example. I know they are looking at me and I want to give them something worth while to look at.
