Do you believe in MIRACLES? God-sized surprises?
What I know to be TRUTH:
Within every trial, hard-moment, and failure there is a lesson. A growth opportunity and often, an actual miracle.
Are you so blinded by your current situation that you are missing the gift hidden inside?
This world? Yeah, it’s hard. Sure, people can be mean, discouraging, and hateful. Or maybe your HARD is something else. An empty bank account? Or, maybe the self-doubt is filling your mind, and that breakthrough seems impossible. Your relationship is crumbling, and you don’t know how to fix it. Your kids are rebelling, and you feel powerless. Maybe you are losing the battle to addiction. You don’t want to get out of bed, feel dark and empty.
Any of those a reality for you?
To be clear: I am NOT making light of hard situations. But, I AM challenging you to dig into your FAITH, friend. I want you to start praying and trusting that within this season there IS a miracle right around the corner. That you will be able to use this lesson as a stepping stone, a story, or a tool to further God’s call over your best life.
Have you ever considered that maybe you are going through this on purpose? That in order for the great to happen... your breakthrough, your miracle healing, your spiritual awakening... you have to weather the hard, first?
To reach the light, you have to navigate through the dark.
Personally? All of the “hard stuff” we recently went through? Inside each of those has been a God-sized miracle! $14,000 in debt, relieved! An unexpected $3,400 in our bank account! A brand new roof! And so much more.
AMEN AMEN AMEN. ??

FULL EPISODE TRANSCRIPTION:
Welcome to episode 80 of the podcast. This is part two from last week's episode, where I talked about having a godly mindset and a faithful, positive energy surrounding every situation that you're faced with. And I wanted to segue that into today's episode, which is miracles, an opening up for God's favor and abundance. I'm super excited to talk about this because girl, the miracles are infant. I am telling you right now, I'm going to show you. I'm going to give you all the examples of how God has placed his hand upon our lives, upon our finances upon all of our needs recently. And I believe that it stems from being in alignment and then having this faith driven mindset, no matter what your circumstance. So welcome to the show. I can't wait to dig in with you.
What's up. Mama boss. Welcome back to The Mompreneur Mastermind Show. I'm Stefanie Gass, success strategist and passive income queen creator. If you're ready to step into your God led potential, create profit from your passions and capture the success that is already yours. This podcast was made for you as always. You can find out more and connect with me over at stefaniegass.com. So grab that cup of coffee or fill up that glass of wine and let's dig in to today's show. And are we connected on Instagram? If not head over to Instagram right now. And I want you to connect with me, be sure to follow me, send me a DM, say hi and take a screenshot of this episode. Put it up in your Instagram stories tag me, and I will share you in my stories together. My friend, we literally can impact the world. We can get more women to claim their potential, dig into their God, led callings and be part of our sisterhood without your help.
I can't spread this mission. Thank you. I appreciate you. And I love you. All right. Let's dig in. Do you believe in miracles? That song just popped in my head? Like, do you believe in magic? Okay. We're going to say, do you believe in miracles? Oh girl. I think it's just been a day. I'm actually having a cup of Joe and it's 2:14 PM. Don't judge me. I drink plenty of water today. And PS water is the number one ingredient in coffee. Just going to lay that out there. So I want to talk about miracles today because I think it's interesting when people really preach on manifesting and you own all the things that come your way and you're in charge of calling it in it to a degree. I can see that, but for me, I believe that they're God's miracles and God wants to provide massive, incredible amounts of abundance and favor over each of our lives.
Because when he provides in such a big, incredible life-changing way, we are able to go and do amazing things with his provision. We're able to get out of debt, to pour into missions, to put money up, to solve problems, to impact more lives. Provision equals furthering his mission. But are you blocking miracles? Did you know you couldn't should be blocking all of that provision that he wants that's for your life. Is your life a series of bad moment? Hard moment. Let down disappointment bad to worse over and over again. Well, first of all, SIS goal listened to the last episode, episode 79, because I think that when we have a godly mindset and faithful, positive energy surrounding every situation that's happening to us on this earth, God can then see that we are living in faithful anticipation of his surprises and he can wrap all of those situations up in miracles.
I think God's waiting for us to open up our hearts to faith, to stop trying to control every situation. And I have seen this happen in my own life over the past year. So even two years and I'm continuously blown away. It's the coolest experience. And let's talk, talk about miracles for a minute. What is a miracle? Miracles are not just monetary financial provision is phenomenal and I'm so excited. Every time God shows up for me for our bank account. That's great. But miracles also show up in friendships, maybe a new friend that seemingly appears out of nowhere, maybe a new mentor that is brought to your life, some guidance or this nugget that you hear in a book or a podcast. It can show up as an answer to a prayer. It can show up as healing. I mean, true, just miraculous healing. It can show up unexpectedly.
And these miracles often do show up right after a dark hard season or something, you know, happens in your life that shakes you and you feel lost or frustrated or overwhelmed or angry be careful because I think a lot of times you're sitting there at the cusp of a miracle and God's waiting to see if you are open to receive and you were open to trusting him to show up for you, or if you're gonna sit there and wallow and live in this misery and create the wall, keeping yourself from growing forward and allowing God to step in and make major shifts in your life for you for so long, I thought that this life was just dependent on me, my actions, how much money can I earn? How hard am I going to work? Right. It was all me, myself and I. And I've talked about this.
You guys know my story and my, but y'all know how that ended for me, not good. I just was going through this continuous cycle of trying to discover myself and trying to control every situation and trying to find worth and value in all the wrong places and all of those false idols that tease us and tell us that this is what happiness means and all of those people that show up on Instagram and create this ideal of perfection. When really we don't have any idea what's going on behind the scenes. Am I right? So when I went through that most recent life transformation and I got really spiritually aligned and sidebar on this, I am still working on this. I think the road to being a true child of God never ends. And just because I feel spiritually aligned, I'm constantly trying to expand and grow in that area.
I'm constantly trying to be better about scripture and intention and devotional time and prayer, and one-on-one time with God. So even if you feel like you're just starting that journey, it's got to start somewhere and it can evolve just PS. So, as I said, last episode, I just decided to start choosing faith to start trusting God's process and to lean into the hard and stuff, fighting it like, okay, this it is hard or it sucks, or it makes me sad or I don't quite understand it, but I'm going to have faith. I think that I'm here. And I know that I'm here because God has something for me. And if there's something hidden in this moment and when I changed that perspective, miracles started showing up everywhere. Let me talk you through some of them, we had just borrowed money from my son's savings account to pay the bills.
It was rock bottom. And I had no idea where the next paycheck was going to come from. I was super resentful towards my network marketing business. I didn't want to get a job. I had a newborn baby newborn. I just wasn't sure what to do. And I got a phone call and it was from somebody that was in my prior company. And he was like, Hey staff, you're so good at social media. Do you think you could help me kind of run my social in my group and post some stuff every day and help some people with the marketing and sales aspect on social. I'll pay you $2,000 a month and you'll probably work. I don't know, 10 hours a week. I'm like, yes. Like the amount of time, time I was spending on that project was nowhere near that $2,000 that he was paying me every month.
And it was in God's timing for that income. And it was over two years ago, he paid me that for a very, very minimal amount of work. And that created the bridge for me to begin the coaching business. That was the first miracle number one. The second miracle was that we had this car payment that was exponential. It was like $764 a month. And some months I would hit the car bonus from the network marketing business some months I wouldn't, we just didn't have the extra money for that. This was a leased vehicle. In essence, I'm renting this car, you know, I'm not creating any equity or whatnot. So my parents call up and they're like, Hey staff, we have this extra van. Would you like to use it for free so that you can get out of this lease? I was able to use a completely free vehicle at that same moment that that income started to flow in and God showed up for me again, miracle number two, I then got handed a completely free trip, multiple free trips, actually in this last phase span of time.
And it almost every time that free trip was right when I needed it, right when I was having a moment or I just needed a break or my husband and I needed to be realigned. Our intimacy needed to be strengthened. A trip would show up and a friend or family member would be like, I have this opportunity. Do you want to go? And the points would be there to fly there for free. And people would pick up the tab with the rental car. And it was like, what? This is incredible. The next miracle that started to happen was I was praying for a breakthrough in my business. And I just didn't know what I was feeling all the hard, right? From the last episode, examples of, I don't know how, I don't know what, I'm not sure. I I'm so frustrated, but I just said, you know what?
God will show me, God, God and I, and you guys pray ask him for help. Stop shying away from prayer. I think the biggest creation of this brand new relationship that I have with abundance miracles and God himself, and I can feel the Holy spirit move within me. When I make choices now is opening up to having a relationship like a true one-on-one relationship. And I'll pray and just say, Lord, show me the right mentor or the right program that I need now. And I'm not exaggerating three days within asking for this and I keep a miracle journal. So if you're like, how does she remember all this stuff? Keep a miracle journal because it will change the way you see your life. When you see all of the infinite miracles that start to happen, the exact person that I wanted to work with said, I'm going out of business.
I am selling my entire arsenal of courses. It was like 10 courses and it was nine 97 in the past. Her one course cost a thousand dollars. I was able to get all 10 of her courses for a thousand dollars as she exited the coaching space. I'm like, are you serious? And just miracle after miracle after miracle, then, you know, I had found myself 60 pounds overweight. I struggled with eating and body image and finding a plan that would work for me for my entire life until for 30 years, basically. So well not when I was zero to five. But so let's say for like 23 years of my life, and I just started to ask God, I, you know, I've got a godly vision, I've got a faith perspective. I'm positive. I'm ready for change. God, show me the right plan for me that I'm going to be my healthiest and most well-balanced me show me the exercise plan.
That's going to light me up miracle. Within that same week, I had a friend approach me with an eating macro plan that worked for me for over a year and a half. I was able to shed 60 pounds, the gym that I needed to join. I had a friend bring me. They're like everything's, but just in alignment, miracle after miracle. And this is God just answering to me, God, answering my prayer in such a direct way is a miracle. God providing the provision to do the things I want and need is a miracle. God giving me the resources and the mentors that I need to scale up my business. And further, my mission here on earth is a miracle. So last week I told you guys about our hailstorm and how I decided to look at that with anticipation. And I always pray to God to surprise me.
And at first I was so scared to ask that because I'm a control freak. Y'all know I'm a three on the Enneagram. I got to know what's coming. I need a plan of action a month before it happens. I have color coding in my planner. I have stickers. I'm Craig, Craig, but I have been really pushing myself to fully, fully trust that my life is in God's hands. And so I've been saying, you know, Lord surprise me. Like I'm literally yours. Like my soul is yours. I'm ready. I am here. I'm your vessel. And he keeps surprising me in these crazy ways. So we had this hail storm and I decided to just have anticipation, whatever comes out of this hail storm, I'm here for it. Like I'm ready, whatever it is it is because I think that there's probably a hidden miracle in this situation.
And I can tell you what there sure was. We ended up getting, even though our camper was totaled, in essence, we ended up getting the loan paid off for the camper and we were able to keep the salvage camper. And so to me, I'm like, that's a massive win. And I've been working on becoming debt-free and God just relinquished this debt for us. It's like so amazing. And it looks like we're going to get our roof replaced as well. And y'all our roof was like 18 years old. And we were going to have to come out of pocket $30,000 to get a new roof. And because of this hailstorm, this act of God as an insurance, cause it literally this act of God, we should get a new roof and it's 99% covered because insurance is covering it. Like, is that not a miracle wrapped up in a moment that seemingly feels overwhelming and frustrating and hard and catastrophic in a way, barrels are waiting.
My mom had thyroid cancer and she got the thyroid removed and her cancer was cured. She's cancer free. My son, I try to get him into this preschool. I was super late. They had no openings. I called, I left a message. Just let me know if anything changes. Within two days, I got a phone call from preschool that I wanted the I wanted. And they said a child just moved out of state. We have one spot for your son. I mean, you guys miracle after miracle, like, are you living in anticipation of miracles or are you blocking all of the provisions? God's trying to give you because you're living in negative agony, you're focused on this world. You're focused on comparison. You're focused on the what ifs and the whens you're focused on the hard, the ugly, the dark, or are you focused on the light at the end of every single tunnel, the lesson in every situation, getting back up after you fall down, God's grace, after you mess up forgiveness, when you need to forgive, where are you living emotionally?
And what does your relationship look like with God challenge you there? Because miracles are waiting for you. Are you just wallowing in self-pity? Are you clinging to the excuses that you are not worthy or good enough? Are you freaking out and flipping out every time something gets hard or hits you or you get knocked off track. We've got to change that narrative girl, the mindset it starts there. It's faith and positivity. It's exciting. I did anticipation of God's work in your life. And sometimes God's work in your life is confusing because it feels wrong or hard or you're being realigned or the direction changes or the business failed or the relationship cracks or your kid acts out or, or, or, or, but because God realigns us and God does work in mysterious ways. And he does have a sense of humor. So stop getting it twisted.
Those things are not happening to you to hurt you, ask God to surprise. You, ask God to show you the miracles, provide you provision and favor, open your heart to what he is trying to give you seriously. I've just seen the miracles happen over and over again in my own life. When I got it out of the way and I really let go and let God, and I just started taking massive action on what he wanted me to do without worrying about the outcome without getting lost in all the negative emotions, the negative chatter on social, the comparison, putting my head down, staying in my own lane and being obedient to what he wanted and then taking everything that was hard with a grain of salt, because everything that's been hard has been a stepping stone to something great. And without it, he couldn't provide me the miracles that I just listed to you.
How many miracles did I just rattle off? That happened to me in the last 12 to 18 months. And I keep a miracle journal and I'm sure there are small miracles that I've forgotten to write down. So I want you to open your heart to what God is waiting to give you. And I want you to right now keeping a miracle list. I want you to keep a little journal that you call your miracle journal, okay? And when you feel God's work in your life, I want you to write it down. I'm going to put a date by it, put, write down what happened no matter how small, because it will help you have a gratitude mindset. It will help you start to give thanks in a big way. And it will also help you to see and actually feel God's work in your life.
Instead of it being this idea, this intangible, this untouchable. When you start to see the miracles unfold, you start to feel the Holy spirit working inside of you and inside of your life and coursing through your family and through your business, through your bank account. And you can believe such a deeper level. So get ready because you're about to be blown away. These miracles, my friend are infinite. I'm telling you what, I'm so excited for you to start experiencing them on a personal level. I want to hear about them. I want you to screenshot your miracles to me over in our mompreneur mastermind, Facebook group send me DMS seriously, like hearing from you guys makes all of this worth it. For me, it makes me excited to show up for you twice a week and put out our words of completely free life-changing content. I hope.
And I've asked God to use me as his vessel. And I pray that these messages are resonating with you on the deepest possible level, and that you're allowing them to shift your life and your business in a massive way. They pray over you. My friend, that the miracles start to come in in abundant, incredible life-changing ways. I pray that you open your heart and soul to receiving that. You're able to find the good in every situation. I pray that you are led to the prayers that you need. The conversations with God that you've been searching for the friendships that will help lift you up. I pray that you start to believe your life has a big purpose behind it, and that you step into that call and you trust the journey. I pray that God helps you courageously leap today on whatever you're being called to do as always love and light, Stef
