When God Says Do THIS…

For the last several months… over a year actually… something has been weighing on me pretty heavy, and I want to share it with my peeps. That’s you 😘 YOU are one of my peeps and I want to open up a bit with you, so bare with me ok?

Last year before I took off to Mexico, I started back reading my Bible. Someone had posted something on Facebook to the effect of “how can you call yourself a Christian if you don’t even know God’s word (the Bible)”. That was a bit of a wakeup call to me because I DO call myself a Christian and I do live my life as a Christian. I try every day to be Christ like. I think that’s the only REAL definition of a Christian. Someone who tries to be Christ like. That’s a conversation for another day though. 😉

Anyway, I decided I needed to jump back into reading my Bible and praying for God’s guidance through it. I wanted to get closer to him to find what I’m supposed to be doing in this part of my life. What’s my purpose? We all have these thoughts at times, right? Well, while getting back into reading the Bible it was just boring me to tears. Maybe I shouldn’t say that about the Bible, but it’s the honest truth. So, I went over to Amazon and found a couple of Bible study guides. I picked one and began using it to digest and understand the Bible.

I was waking up every morning praying for God to guide me as I read his word (still doing it daily), and reading that day’s verses that I was told to read in my study guide. After a few months I decided to get a journal because so much was coming to me from God at this time. I was learning and listening, and one day while listening, God spoke to my heart and I got the idea to create my own bible/prayer journal. The one I was using was ok, but I wanted something better and more useful for my needs. It truly felt like a calling from God. I told God that while in Mexico I would create this journal and put it up for sale for anyone who was wanting a good journal to use to while praying and learning from the Bible.

Well, I went to Mexico and never got around to doing it… 😬

Let me tell you… When you tell God you’re going to do something he has a way of holding you to it. He has put me through the fire while still blessing me, but WHEW! It’s been tough…

I got back from Mexico in January. It’s been almost a year now and God and I have been going back and forth over this journal. I just didn’t feel like I was the person to create something like this. I mean I’ve got a “potty mouth” as my mom always called it, I don’t live a life that most would call “Christian like”, I’m not a “Bible expert”, I don’t even go to church every Sunday (because I believe “church” is wherever you and God meet and when you speak about God with others that’s church to me), and the list goes on and on. I kept asking, “Why me, God? There are so many others out there who would be better for this. I’m not right for this, God.”

Evidently God sees something I don’t because he then put it in my heart that I needed to create a full on business and help others who like me might not be the perfect picture of a Christian, but who want to share their faith and even do it in a profitable way if they want.

For months I have been fighting God on doing this… I’ve had the worst year of my life this year. Losing people, fighting depression, some bad business decisions, and the list goes on and on. It’s been a ROUGH year! And the whole time God has been in my ear saying… “Are you ready to do what you’re supposed to do?”

It’s Christmas Eve (at the time of this writing)… I’m sitting in my house alone, sick with some kind of “crud”, and while I’m not “ready”, I will be moving forward with all of this. I’m finally going to do what I’ve been scared to do for over a year now. I’m going to come out with a whole new brand to help others who are like me and want to share their faith. Be it sharing their faith in the business they currently have and/or want to start a faith based business from scratch.

Don’t worry… All my other brands will still be around and I’m going to stay focused on doing workshops and creating PLR content just like I have, but I am also releasing a new brand where I will be doing workshops and creating PLR content for faith based businesses and/or those just wanting to share their faith in a world where it’s getting harder and harder to be able to share our faith.

The first will be a workshop to kick off the brand. It will be called The Faith Based Blog Profits Workshop and I will show you how to create your own faith based blog and show you several ways that you can monetize-it and ideas for ways to share your faith. Not only that, but you’ll also get a lot of content to start it off and content to market it. This is going to be an amazing workshop PLUS some done-for-you touches. πŸ™‚ You’ll also get PLR to the entire thing. 🎉

I will also be creating that prayer journal and giving you guys the PLR to that along with a ton of other faith based products and content that you can use and/or sell. And there will be a lot of other workshops too. With PLR of course 🤑

As I said… I’m still going to be talking all things online business and Internet marketing without talking about my faith, but here and there I will also be working on this new business to help out my fellow believers too.

I hope those of you who are my fellow Christians will support me in this new adventure and I hope that those of you who are NOT Christians will allow me to take up a little space in our “normally scheduled programming” to do what my heart and my God is pushing me to do. I won’t be pushing religion down ANYONE’S throat, preaching, or anything like that. I’m still crazy ol’ me who eats, sleeps, and breathes marketing and online business, but I also want to help others out who want to do business while sharing their faith too.

I know this is a long message and I’ve bared my soul here, and I appreciate those of you who are still reading. I’ll be back in a week or so with the release of The Faith Based Blog Profits Workshop (which will of course come with PLR so you can learn and profit).

For now though I have some juicy AI stuff I’ve been wanting to share with you guys, so keep an eye out for that TOMORROW. I’m going to be doing a full blown 5 day live workshop for using PLR and AI for big-profits the EASY way. I will be releasing it with a limited number of PLR licenses too, so make sure to jump on it quick if you want to scoop up the PLR to it.

2024 is going to be an amazing year for us all. I can just feel it. Thanks for being on this journey with me and I look forward to helping you in 2024 in all the ways YOU need me!

Talk soon!

    Wow Liz, tremendous heartfelt post…and as I was reading it I thought it was about me πŸ™‚ All the issues, obstacles, procrastinations holding me back, you identified & nailed in this post! I too have wanted to be more purposeful with my faith, even building a business with it. So I’m eager to see what’s ahead.

      Well just maybe listening to God and actually DOING what he wants me to just might be the right thing. πŸ˜‰ I’m moving forward with it, so let’s see what happens. ❀ Thank you so much for your comment. The support means the world to me. 😊

    Liz, following through with your promises to our Beloved is both difficult and rewarding. Coming tambiΓ©n escencial en nustro relacion con El.

    I am interested and inspired

    1. liztomey Author

      Gracias, amigo! Aprecio mucho su apoyo. ❀ You are inspiring in your work too and watching from afar it seems God is blessing you also in the work you do in His name. Thanks for always cheering me on. It means so much to me!

  3. David Soup

    We all lack when it comes to actually doing what we think God is telling us to do.
    You yourself know what my year has been like. I will be keeping my eye on this subject and for more from you on it.
    I will pray that God guides you through it all.

      Thanks, David! You’re another who is always cheering me on and I appreciate you so much! I hope 2024 is the year you find your stride and rock it!

    I agree with the first response. Even though i am am ordained minister, it sounded like I was reading my own thoughts. Thank you. The Bible does say,
    Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.
    Proverbs 11:14

    So rest assured that this is weighing on the hearts of many of us and God is using you. I’m on board.

    1. liztomey Author

      Thank you, Ethan! I am so happy that I am on a path that can help so many. I’m literally “tingling” with excitement for where we’re all going to be this time next year. πŸ™‚

  5. OK, Liz. I’m with you. I started working on a vision given to me about a year ago (the website listed below). Now I’m building out the blog somewhat. I’m not fast, but I’m determined.

    I’m looking forward to your journey.

    The Lord bless you and keep you;
    the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
    the Lord lift up his countenance[a] upon you and give you peace.

      Thank you, Edgar! ❀ Your kind words and pray are VERY appreciated. You’ve been with me for quite a while and I am very grateful for your support. Here’s to you, me, and the rest of us acting on our visions, messages, etc. from God.


  6. Good for you Liz! Send me details when it opens up. I don’t have the same exact beliefs as you, but in the last couple years I’ve found a God of my own understanding and the connection with it has changed my life.

    I’ve gone from being a militant atheist to now considering myself an Omnist, which is to say I believe all religions are right (and therefore probably equally wrong sometimes too) and I consider most scriptures to be good excellent allegory.

    I’m interested in following your progress, but if the God of your understanding is behind it — it will work out.

    1. liztomey Author

      Thank you so much, Andie! Your words mean the world to me. This is exactly what I’m wanting. To be able to share what God is putting in me to share and also respecting others with different beliefs. I will for sure keep you updated. πŸ™‚

  7. Liz, I love what you are doing here, and thank you for being so transparent. One of the hardest things about trying to do God’s work, like publishing the journal, or starting a faith based business, is that as soon as you do, the enemy starts fighting.

    And for me, it’s been a fight.

    It’s encouraging me to see Him giving you a similar message of getting out there with His Word.

    I feel like He’s up to something, and to reach a lot of people, He needs lots of us!

    1. liztomey Author

      Thank you, Sean! And I totally agree. It’s quite a battle and I’m quietly fighting the battle. I know I will win. πŸ™‚ I love seeing so many of us
      “old schoolers” coming out about our faith and making it a focus in our businesses! <3

    I just finished a ‘through the Bible in 1 year’ study for the second time (2022 & 2023). Although this one was more interesting (each day’s intro that is), at the end I feel like many days were more about checking it off (because let’s face it, some books are extremely dry and boring). This year I want to do some more meaningful, but haven’t found anything yet that speaks to me. So I’m super excited and 100% supportive to see what you do both for my personal journey as well as for biz (I dabbled with a faith-based FB page/group last year but it didn’t get much traction).

    1. liztomey Author

      I know exactly what you mean. I don’t think I could get through the Bible without some kind of study guide. I mean I probably could, but I don’t think I would get as much from it nor understand as much.

      Glad to hear this is something you’re interested in. I’ve been blown away with how many in my audience actually want this kind of information. I’m super excited!

    Can you share with us the name of those study guides for the Bible you found that helped you? I know I would be very grateful for any thoughts on a good study guide or 2. There are so many of them listed when I search online for one and of course – just as many people to recommend them that you don’t know. Any thoughts?
    Big Fan

      Hey there! SO I can’t remember ALL of them off the top of my head. There is ONE that really sticks out. It what really triggered me getting serious about my Bible study time. The title is The 5-Minute Visual Guide to the Bible: Time Lines, Photographs, Paintings, and Maps to Enhance Your Understanding of God’s Word. I found it on Amazon and it really broke things down for me. I’ve bought so many after this one and different types. I’ll be talking about them more at a later time. That one though is AMAZING!
