Cause and Effect

Whenever God wants to put two people together (God, not man), the actions of one will definitely affect the other. I remember so well a family member, (who I’ve shared about before), trusting God for a man who God told her was for her. Well at the time, he was tangled up in a mess. No matter how hard we tried to convince her that there could be someone else for her, she held on. His actions (sin) did not stop her and actually as a pure young woman, she really didn’t have to accept him at all. But God knew what was best and thank God she listened. They are now happily married and honestly they have one of the best relationships that I have seen in a long time. I say that because it is evident that God was the matchmaker.

This doesn’t just apply to relationships. It can apply to any vision that includes other individuals besides yourself. Their actions can very much affect the course or journey that you will take.

I know many of you who read my blog wonder why I’ve gone back and forth with my geographical move. Well, I’m going to let the cat out of the bag. It’s because there is another individual involved. And I KNOW God was telling me to get ready to move. In 72 hours I received so many confirmations that I was awestruck. Well within a week or two it all had changed. At the time, I couldn’t tell you why, but within a short period of time, I found out why. So I am back at square one. Very disappointed, but understanding that a “new memo” came to my mailbox and this one said “stay put”.

It’s been hard to me to accept this latest memo. I was so ready to move and make this change, but now it seems as though all conditions are not ready.  Now, I have to get my spiritual equilibrium back. God knows I do. One day I will help many others to understand that your circumstance can indeed change because of the actions of another. I’m sure I’m helping someone now.


Release yourself from all frustration and irritation.  The things that haven’t worked out the way you hoped they would were for the purpose of a course correction.   You will gain some much needed wisdom from recent events that had the potential for disappointment and discouragement.  Forgive yourself and others, and ask Me for wisdom.  I will provide not only wisdom but direction and guidance.  Trust me to keep you in the flow of My Spirit, says the Lord.
Galatians 5:16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

Love Series: Blocked

Yesterday, I did not know what to post as I stated and I wound up posting about love. Well I kind of knew that it could easily be misinterpreted, but I wanted to post it anyway. What I posted was my vision of how I hope love will be one day. This morning I got a response to it, so I read it to my prayer partner and she said “yes, if I didn’t know you, I would have thought it was about someone. But since I know you, I know you are not in love. So today I want to share what has recently happened: (another draft written before the love post)

Where it comes to me and a love life, it has always been about God blocking me from getting into something that was not good for me. I can tell you story after story about “almost” relationships. I know God doesn’t do this for everyone, but God knows us. I am grateful because I’ve been spared a lot of heartache.

I shared on this blog that on Christmas day a Prophetess ministered to me and how it blessed me. She mentioned a man at my church who has been observing me, but she saw another man coming. I have to admit I got more excited about the one watching me, because she was accurate to a fault. A very tall, dark and handsome man on the pastoral staff had been paying close attention to me and I  must admit I was loving it.

In hindsight, when I talked to the prophetess, I did a lot of talking after that word and I think I added my own spin. In my mind I was sure this was a pre-relationship to my actual Boaz, but it seems that was not to be. As you can imagine after that Word, I was excited to see what was going to happen. I told one of my friends that I was losing focus on worship. At that point my excitement about attending church was to worship God AND see HIM. LOL

But the circumstance at the church took a quick turn and honestly I kind of saw it coming. Before I knew it, he was announcing taking a break to seek the Lord and right now, he has been replaced and it doesn’t appear he will be back. For now, it appears like all possiblities have been blocked.

I was talking to my best friend and prayer partner and I told her that sometimes I am still hoping that something will happen (even though I know he is not my Boaz). She said, well God knows you might end up falling in love, so he blocked it.

Sometimes where matters of the heart are concerned, God just has to block it. He knows it will take us off course. Such is life.

Rest assured, I am NOT in love yet, but I have a vision of that love and it will be with the right one, not the wrong one.
