It’s so interesting how God works, how we are given so many signs, warnings, and messages from beyond, but we choose to ignore them. God may put us through a turbulent storm, but there is always a beautiful day and a rainbow after the storm clears. There’s always a reason for a season that we go through in life.
Now that I’ve gotten past the initial shock of finding a new place to live, I can think more clearly and want to share an interesting story with you. A story that I pray will help you find hope too. I must admit yesterday was a tough day, but I know that God will make a way, provide me with strength, and not let me drown.
The way God set things up so I wouldn’t be too shaken is well calculated and beautiful, to say the least. I used to work out of my home; on my lower level is an office off to the side, a perfect location for clients. Ideal home office away from the rest of my house.
However, over the last year, I switched to phone and zoom video sessions. It’s honestly not because of COVID that I changed, but more because I was getting inner guidance that I should no longer see people out of my home. I now see that God prepared me for this time by doing that, and I am glad I trusted that guidance.
About two months ago, I heard in my head while I was relaxing, “ It’s getting dangerous, you will have to move to another location, and it will be quick” I thought to myself, what kind of crazy messages am I getting? I just brushed it off. About a month ago, I got this strange thought in my head that I needed packing tape, so I ordered it and threw it on top, of the fridge.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve been getting urges to get rid of stuff, so I cleaned out the garage and started sorting through some other things. Over the last two weeks, I started getting in my head that the landlord would contact me about selling the property; of course, I ignored that because I didn’t want to believe it.
Then yesterday morning, I was walking my dogs and thought to myself, “I wish I lived somewhere that had a place to walk my dogs other than the parking lot of my development.” It was later that morning at 8:15 that I got the call from my landlord.
Whenever I’m in a stage of panic, sadness, or hopelessness, sometimes all three, like yesterday, I open the Bible and just pray to whatever I open to. God always has the right message at the right time. Last night I opened the Bible to this message:
. 8“But you, O Israel, My servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, descendant of Abraham My friend— 9I brought you from the ends of the earth and called you from its farthest corners. I said, ‘You are My servant.’ I have chosen and not rejected you. 10 Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will surely help you; I will uphold you with My right hand of righteousness.…Isaiah 41:8-10
When I read that scripture, I started balling my eyes out, but peace came over me. Even though It’s a turbulent time, God will not leave me nor forsake me. God will make a way; God will provide. Remember that the next time you’re going through turbulent times. Remember to pay attention to the signs, trust your gut, and thank God in advance for the blessings.
It’s durning our worst moments that we grow even closer to God. It’s also during our most trying times that the devil tries to get us to believe that God has left or abandoned us. Tell that devil to get behind you, as Jesus did! (chills typing this). The devil tempts us because he already knows the blessing God has in store.
Let this be a message of hope and inspiration for you. I’m transparent and share my trials and tribulations so I can help you through yours. We are all children of God; we are all equal; we are all fighting a battle in one way or another.
I want to thank everyone for your kind messages, inspiration, and help during this trying time. The amount of support and love from all of you is heartwarming, and I am so thankful to have all of you. I know God won’t let me drown; I know God will make a way.
Have a really blessed day, I love you all, and God loves you too.
