Last week, I shared that my house was auctioned off and of course I had to move and I can’t say that I have shed one tear about it. Change is good! It was time to go and the story about that house has not yet been completely told, but, it was time for me to move.
God had prepared me for this, when I didn’t want to hear it. I received a Word from a prophet not too long ago that stated “God is going to make you move”. Of course I understood it when I got it, but was still somewhat in denial. Then I had a dream many years ago that my sister (who lives up the street) gave me the keys to her apartment, car, etc. and even though I had the dream many years ago, I kind of knew it had to do with leaving the house.
So, my friend in North Carolina offered her home, until I figured out which direction to go in and I accepted not really sure what to do. But as I began to seek the Lord, He reminded me that Florida would connect me with my destiny.
During this time of transition, God kept saying to take one day at a time and following that made my move smooth. Whenever I tried to look ahead and anticipate the next day, things got stressful. When I tell you, each day, God gave me direction, that is exactly how it happened. As long as I took one day at a time, I was fine.
So with things in storage and bags packed to go to North Carolina, I didn’t have a peace about it at all. Then Sunday I turned on one of my favorite ministers and he was preaching a message called “This is the place”. In the message he stressed that this is the place God called you to and God said “stay right here” and that He (God) was going to open a door. Well that is exactly what happened.
Yesterday while laughing and talking with my sister, I shared what God told me about staying in Florida and how North Carolina was just a stopover and my sister simply said “well you can stay right here”.
Before I knew it, we went to the rental office and got an extra key and the dream I had many years ago was fulfilled. I also believe I may be returning to my former church because it’s all about connecting to destiny.
Someone once called me Dora the Explorer and I have to chuckle every time I think about it. I can’t look at this in a negative way AT ALL. God’s hand is all up in it and there is so much more that I cannot share, but I know I am absolutely in my kairos moment! There is more to come and the testimony is going to blow you away. Just wait and see.
When I think about the house I left, I just want to leap for joy because I am SO GLAD to be gone. The Lord has much better and sometimes we can’t see it until we have moved on. It’s simply amazing. I can’t wait to see what is next. This is an exciting journey.
Don’t be afraid to surrender to God and follow him. Yield to HIS plan fully and watch Him work. Even if it get’s uncomfortable, know that He is with you. And remember that CHANGE IS GOOD!
New International Version (NIV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.[a]
