I struggle with both – knowing for sure what my calling is AND waking it out. I think I have some idea of one of my callings, if it’s possible to have more than one. I get tripped up because there’s a second business – a product business – I felt I was called to start, and I did.

However, I fell for the enemy’s whispers and started to focus on the sales and financial success. This led to the most unbearable stress I’ve experienced. In 10 years time, the best year I had the business did $60k, and then did $30k in 2020 but then I was forced to change how I’d have to manufacture my bestseller and I felt like I failed God. I felt like I myself was a failure and that I had failed God. Not only did this cause me to be depressed, but it also led me to slowly let that business decline.

Even 2 years later, I still have a handful of women buying my other products and continuing to ask when my bestseller will be bank in stock. I feel ashamed that I let God down, and I’ve repented that I focused on the wrong thing instead of focusing on obedience.

I’ve cried to God several times and asked Him to tell me what He wants me to do – close that business or give it another try – and I still don’t have a clear direction, still can’t hear a clear answer from the Lord. I’ve told God that I don’t want to do that business the same way I did before, that if He’s not in it that I don’t want to do it. I can’t physically, mentally or financially bear it to be like it was before. But I still don’t have a clear answer.

That business is in an industry that goes against God at seemingly every turn. I’ve come to kind of understand that God wants His people to take territory for His kingdom in such industries but I still don’t have a clear answer from God. So hear I sit. I don’t know what to do.
