In my previous post I talked about my short break from social media and how impactful it was. If you missed that post I’ll link it HERE. What I didn’t share with you at the time was what I did during my time off. Although it was only been a 3 week break, some amazing things have happened during this time. It’s amazing what God can do in a short period. I really wanted to focus on my prayer life and spending more time reading and studying the word of God. For me this is critical in the success of my businesses and person development. The Bible is known as the book of instruction and I rely solely on it to help me make decisions in these areas of my life. During my break I realized that I was stagnate in a few areas and wasn’t fully walking in my purpose the way I know I should be. So, I took it to God in prayer. What he showed me both frightened me and make me see my purpose so clearly. To say I was shaken out of my comfort zone is an understatement. This was how I knew it was God and not me. In prayer I asked God to help me fully walk in purpose. I mean truly use my talents and passion for the kingdom. One thing about me is that I’ve known of the calling on my life from a very young age. Its instinctive you know, you can just feel it. I’m unique in many ways and I always wondered why. It wasn’t until many years later God showed me and with many trials, mistakes, and episodes of self-doubt God is pushing me into my purpose. It was a gentle push but push nonetheless. I’m finally strong and wise enough to walk this path knowing my steps are ordered and that path is already mapped out for me. No practice or trial runs required, it’s time to walk by faith.
So today I would like to share with you some very exciting news! I have the honor of representing my hometown as this year’s Mrs. Trenton, New Jersey United States 2019. That’s right, I’m officially beauty queen lol. Every time I say this out loud a giggle. Who would have though a girl from the block, raised by a teenage single mother just above the poverty line would be considered beauty queen? God will elevate you to positions people thought you weren’t qualified for. What an honor this truly is as I have the opportunity to use this platform to bring awareness to many issues facing the city and implement initiatives to impact my community. If this is your first time here on my blog let me give you a little insight into my mission. This is a place where I cultivate an environment of beauty, growth, and faith. In doing so, my hope is that the next generation of women aspire not only to be beautiful but to be intelligent, graceful, and empowered. Why be on the cover of Vogue when you can grace the pages of Forbes as well. We are never to settle for anything less than greatness. My favorite scripture is Proverbs 31:30. It reads “Beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord shall be praised. Although many of you may have come to know me from my beauty related content. I hope that my intellect and candor will impose the greatest lesson. Being deemed “beautiful” physically is nice but its subjective. I’m focusing on beauty that stems from integrity. My life is a tutorial, where you learn what to do and what not to do. I’ve embraced every aspect of my life because it serves as my greatest lesson. You can come from where I come from, make mistakes, and not become a product of your environment. You can glow up, you can become a true beauty! This is my purpose, through every trial, heartache, and mistake I’ve made the lessons are to help others. This has NEVER been about me. It took a break from everything I’ve worked tirelessly to build to teach me this lesson. Although God has blessed me with many talents they were never meant to promote my own agenda or ideals. They are meant to grow the kingdom of God. This is my mission, this is my purpose, this is what Chimere Nicole has been called to do. As Mrs. Trenton, NJ my platform Girl Yes will be used to shine a light into the darkest of places including my hometown and hopefully impact others along the way.
