don’t stop your hustle, but don’t let your hustle stop you

I called my mom last night and cried.

I was battling stress, worry, and a tightness in my chest.

She told me, “Torie, give yourself a break. We don’t have to have it all figured out tonight.” Sometimes I wonder if I’ll have the same superpowers when I’m a mom.

Can I share some truth with you?

If it’s meant to be, it will be.

I know, you’ve heard that before. I’ve heard it before too- lots of times. But girl, it really is the truth. Don’t stop your hustle, but also don’t let your hustle stop you. God has given you everything you need to fulfill your specific purpose. I promise He will get you where you need to be.

This is something I’ve been reminding myself of lately:

I don’t want anything that is not from God.

I would rather be patient than miss out on God’s timing.

I don’t want to be somewhere that He has not called me to be.

Girl, if you’re hustling hard and stressing because you still don’t feel like you have it all figured out, please remember that you don’t have to. Here’s a secret: you’re not the only one. No one else has it figured out either. The lucky thing? God does.

Last night I gave it to God and went to sleep. I decided to trust Him over myself, and with my mom’s help, I realized that it’s better that way.

My plans pale in comparison to what He has planned for me and oh I’m so thankful. I’m thankful that it’s not all up to me to figure out, and I’m thankful that the same goes for you, too.

  1. God’s got this. The old phrase”Let go and Let God” always works. He has not only got a plan for you, he’s got the best plan. Your blog is not only for young women. Women everywhere struggle with the things you blog about. I’m 66 and I still struggle. If you always keep Christ first he will lead you in the way you should go. Cast all your worries, anxiety, depression, all of it on him…”For he cares for you”. God bless you girl. You give me hope for the future generations.

    1. You are so right on so many levels. I’m so glad these words meant something to you and I’m even more glad that we both get to serve a God that has us in the palm of His hand. Much love to you ♥️
