Is It Wrong I Don’t Have A Hustle?

I’m 27 years old, I’m single, I have two degrees and working on a third (pray for me).

I have a decent job (not the dream one but it’s coming) and I have good credit.

And that is my life, well some of my life.  And today someone pointed out those things to me and said “why are you hustling”? And immediately… Hustlin’ hustlin’ Everyday I’m hustlin by Rick Ross came into my head.  Why? Probably because I’m from Miami and well he’s our rap mascot.  So I become obsessed with duh! finding a hustle.  Looking for another job so I can make more money and looking for a part-time to make more money until my new money-making full-time comes along.  Oh and did I mention I already have a full-time job in addition to pursuing my MBA part-time.   So I looked for a couple of hours and nothing!  So I prayed and cried to God telling Him my frustrations.

Then confusion hit me like a slap to the face.

FYI I also suffer from minor anxiety attacks, mostly when I feel my life is spinning out of control.

And it was at the onset of an attack when I realized God is not a God of confusion, satan is.  He came in ever so quietly riding on the advice of a friend.  I almost missed him,almost. So I reminded myself to keep my eyes set on Jesus and softly in the background Bethel’s It Is Well came on and played this on time lyric.

“Through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
Through it all, through it all
It is well”

Then I read my She Reads Truth devotional which highlighted Psalms 37:1-9

3  Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land

and befriend faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself in the Lord,

and he will give you the desires of your heart.

5 Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.

6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,

and your justice as the noonday.

7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;

fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,

And i heard God say ” I did not call you to hustle Mychelé, I called you to live abundantly. I want you to rest on the Sabbath, enjoy your family and friends.  How can you do all those things and hustle? Don’t you know I will provide your every need.”

And I wept.  Now I not saying hustlin’ is a bad thing or that you should quit your second job.  All I’m saying is don’t let the voice of other overrule the voice of God. Whatever or whoever is loud in your ear mute them and God speak into your heart.

Spirit Lead Me

 

 

“Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)”

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

[6x]
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

I will call upon Your name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine
