Episode 88

#88: You Don’t Got This

Let's dive into the mindset shift of recognizing that you don't "got this," but rather, God's got this. Today Jeanette explores the importance of not relying solely on yourself and instead, partnering with God for your big endeavors. Want to discover the freedom that comes from surrendering control and embracing obedience to God? Tune in!

In this episode Jeanette explores the freedom and peace that accompanies walking in God's guidance and the transformative impact it can have on your life because "When we are thinking about [...] the things that we're creating, we're creating them with the Creator of the universe." and that in and of itself is reassuring. When you allow Him to lead, everything that happens around you is His will and you don't have to worry about anything. 

Tune in to learn how to navigate your personal journey, both in life and business, remembering that you are not meant to bear the weight of it all on your own.

In this episode:

  • The "you got this" mentality and why you need to shift your focus to God's guidance.
  • Understanding that relying exclusively on yourself limits your potential 
  • The difference between feeling uncomfortable and feeling scared.
  • Partnering with God to follow His divine direction

Hey, girl, hey, you know what phrase I'm saying? You really hate? You got this? And I used to say it a lot. Like I used to say you got this girl? Yeah, girl you got this. You got this? Yeah, I was just doing you got this is out there. Like it was confetti, like just to everybody. Yeah, girl, you can do this. You got this? And then something in me said no, I don't know, I don't, I don't got this. God's got this because of I got this, then that means that I am doing something. And I'm not. I am partnering with God for my big ideas, which means it came from him which means God's got this because if I got this, then everything I do is dependent on me. And all the things that I am doing. I literally just look down at my computer and I've got three stickers on it. One says Nomad because I feel like I am a nomad. Especially because we are military. We just kind of like gypsies you know, another one says hot mess because Hello, yeah, hot mess right here. Another one says, You got this. Like I was literally that was my phrase, man, you got this. Oh, man. Now gonna take the sticker off my computer, and it's gonna make my sticker, my computer look all gross and sticky. But for real, though, you don't got this. I don't got this. God's got this. Because if God's got this, then that means that I don't have to worry about the outcome. God does. I don't have to worry about if I'm doing things right. God does. I just have to be obedient. I just have to do the things he's telling me to do. And God's got the rest. I don't got this. I don't get this at all. At all. I'm not supposed to. I'm not supposed to get this. I'm not supposed to got this. I'm supposed to be obedient to Jesus. Do the things he's telling me to do and just walk that next step. That's it. That's literally the only thing that I am supposed to be doing. So I don't got this. And I'm not supposed to. And that's okay. Another phrase I've really been hating lately is do it scared? No, I'm not doing it scared. I can be comfortable with being uncomfortable. But I'm not going to do it scared. I'm going to do it knowing that I have the peace of God with me. Because if I'm doing it scared, that means that God is not with me, that means God's not in it. That means that I'm doing it for me. I don't want to do this for me. I don't want to do this for my life. I want to do this for God. So if I have the mindset of this is from God, this is for God, this is who God is and I'm doing things for God. Then I don't got this. I'm never gonna get this. God's got this. He's the only one that can got this. I didn't create the earth and seven days I didn't speak the world into existence. God did. And if I'm scared, I'm not feeling the fruits of the Spirit. I'm not feeling the Holy Spirit telling me I have peace, joy, kindness, self control inside me. I'm not feeling those things. If I'm doing it scared. I can do it uncomfortable. But that's not scare. Those are two different emotions. I had a speaking gig the other day and I was uncomfortable. I was a little bit nervous, but I had peace. I was not scared. Which I was kind of surprised y'all that I was not scared. But then I realized God is with me. I'm on the right track. I'm doing the things that God has for me because God's got this because I got the peace of Jesus. I got the Jesus piece you know how to say that in rap songs. I got the Jesus piece Yeah, I got the Jesus piece. But I don't got no chain around my neck. I got a piece of From Jesus that is calming my soul. Like that's a whole different level of peace. If you've never felt that girl, you have no idea what you're missing. I serve running recently and they talk about runner's high. I don't know what that is, I'm never going to feel that because I'm not going to run that far. But I do know what the piece of Jesus's and when I feel that I know I'm on the right track. I know that God's got this. And I know I don't have to do it scared. I don't have to do scared. I just have to do it uncomfortable. And that's it. So when you're running out there, and you're like, do I got this? Or does God got this? That's what you need to ask yourself? Do I got this? Or does God got this? Am I scared? Or do I feel the peace? Who's with me right now? Is it just me? Am I out here by myself? Or am I following God's direction? When we are thinking about our business and the new things that we're offering, the new things that we're going to bring forth and the things that we're creating, we're creating them with the Creator of the universe. And when we do that, God's got this, we don't have to worry about anything. Because when we're following his divine direction, although it may fail, quote, unquote, it's teaching us something that we need to know for the next level that he's bringing us to. Okay. So, I hope you guys have a great day. And God's got this. Wow, that was so good. So I know that you know, somebody that also needs to hear that. So share this episode, leave a review.
