Virtuous Rubies: The Social – Recap 1/21/17
It’s been a little over a week now and I’m still in awe of what God did at Virtuous Rubies.
First, I’d like to thank our sponsors. Never, in a million years did I think anyone would support my vision with $$$. A vision without sponsors, might just be a vision lol. So thank you so much Chetanna Okasi, Alex Zee, Ibukun S Babalola-Akanni & RCCG Jesus House Staten Island, NY. As you have blessed me, God will also bless you.
Virtuous Rubies: The Social Edition
The first of its kind.
Many have asked, “what was the event about?” Well, come to the next one and you’ll find out 😉.
Virtuous Rubies was inspired by my 366 Day Dating/Boy Fast (beginning of fast, ending of fast). After so long, it was only right to celebrate. God nudged me to not only celebrate myself but also glorify His name and celebrate/inspire other ladies. Around late-November, I thought “A ladies brunch??” Later in December, as I studied Proverbs 31, I got stuck on verse 10; “Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies.”
January 21st 2017 was a day ordained by God and I know it so well because every thing concerning Virtuous Rubies was perfect. From the location, to the program, our guest speaker, food, red carpet, set up, teardown… Literally, everything! It couldn’t have been any more seamless. I’ve led a couple of events (through school organizations etc), and I’m certain that this one was special. The Chosen Generation Festival has some competition 😂
Glory be to God!
To all my friends and lovely ladies,
I beg of you, when God plants an idea in your heart, do not be afraid. Allow faith to lead you. I mean, I sent out invitations to over 60 ladies and hadn’t secured a location. I trusted the vision and I trusted God. I said, “God, you gave me this vision, so please.. help me.”
Don’t allow your dreams to scare you. Yes, they’re a little daunting and you may not know where to start.. I challenge you to start.
We, my friends, are the Chosen Generation and I don’t know about you but I’m done playing games. Enough of the self-doubt. Get to WORK. There’s nothing better than being aligned with your calling and working for the Lord. We are His hands and feet. Don’t be a waste lol.
This is literally only the Genesis. I’ve been inspired.. not by man but by how God works if we obey and allow Him to.
Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies. – Proverbs 31:10
God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. – 1 Peter 4:10
