Do you have hopes, dreams and goals? Do they seem so out of reach from where you stand right now? Do you just want to quit?
Sometimes we need refined in an area of life that we didn’t even know was an issue. That’s what I realized once I started reading my friend Nicki Koziarz’s book 5 Habits of a Women who Doesn’t Quit.
I have a habit of starting a project with much enthusiasm but as the weeks go by, that feeling fades and I become less inclined to continue.
“God gives favor for small steps of obedience over big empty promises.” – Nicki Koziarz
Nicki Koziarz’s teaching came to life as she walked me through the Book of Ruth. I discovered how Ruth had plenty of chances to quit. Her husband had just died and her mother-in-law, Naomi whom she loved, had decided to return to her home land in Israel.
Instead of returning to her family, Ruth decided to follow Naomi. There were many chances along the way for Ruth to give up and return home. Instead she followed through with her decision – she did not quit.
“A committed woman learns to choose what she wants most over what she wants now.” – Nicki Koziarz
Nicki offers five habits a women can acquire to follow through with her commitments. Just like Ruth accepted the assignment of refinement and allowed herself to become the woman God wanted her to be, we can too.
Let’s face it, life is hectic. But Nicki shows us how to stay open to the movement of God and move forward with life and our commitments and projects in faith.
