It’s My Time/And Yours Too!

its_time

Have any promises of God that you are waiting on? Tired of waiting? Hardly believing anymore? Well I want to encourage and tell you that it’s your time.

I’m starting to a see a glimpse of light at the end of a very long tunnel. Some of you have been blessed to have seen many breakthroughs. I am happy for you! But there are those of us who have waited and waited and waited some more and I tell you it’s not fun.

Lately, I am seeing a little bit of a breakthrough in the area of work. For me the struggle has been real and as I look back I realize that some people are 9-5 people and others are not and you have to find your niche. I have never been a 9-5 office type person. I realized recently that I wanted to be like my mom. I wanted to get married, have 6 kids (yes 6) and be a stay at home mom. But it never happened and I didn’t really have a back up plan. But don’t feel sorry for me. The one thing I am proud of is that I answered the call of God on my life and put other things secondary. But now I am seeing a change.

So my biggest breakthrough has been being able to work from home. Some people need the office politics and banter and so on and so forth, but I have always wanted to work from home and last year, my brother started paying me to do research for his business right from my home!! I am so happy. And right now I am training for another position at another company doing social media research, right from home. Honestly, I am living my dream right now. No travel, no care fare, no office drama. Not for everyone, but it’s for me. And there is more to come!!

I realize that things are really beginning to change and it’s all about coming into your Kairos moment. That is that opportune time when God is manifesting what you want. It’s your set time. Your appointed time.

It’s been a long time coming and I’ve often wondered if I missed God and maybe I have missed some opportunities, but I just know “It’s my time!” And it’s yours too! Don’t give up!!

Stay tuned! There is more to come!

Psalm 102:13 New International Version (NIV)

13 You will arise and have compassion on Zion,
for it is time to show favor to her;
the appointed time has come.

Things Are Not What They Seem

“But, you have to know that things are not what they seem to be.” I was just reading an old post and those words just stuck out to me.

Sometimes what looks like something good is not necessarily good. So you may see a situation and from all appearances it appears good, but it’s not.

Let God work your situation out the way he wants to, even if it means someone else gets where you want to get first.

Just be happy for the person. If they get to Paris or Dubai first, rejoice! You’re next.

I knew God was reminding me that I am about to see something that is going to appear to be good, but it is not going to be anything like what I think. And this Word may apply to you. Don’t forget..Things are NOT always what they seem!seems are not what they seem

Three Warnings/I Missed Them All

warning-147489_1280_0

What a day! A friend of mine is here in Florida from New York because of her job and we were supposed to meet up for dinner this evening. So another friend offered me the use of her car so I could meet up with my visiting friend and honestly I had already planned to take the bus, but I accepted the offer to use her car. Big mistake.

Long story short I had an accident in Walmart’s parking lot and hit someones car as I was backing out of the parking spot. The car that I was driving sits up a little higher than what I am used to. It’s a Nissan Rouge and strangely enough the car has rear view cameras and I still didn’t see the person I hit! But it is what it is and now I will more than likely end up having to come out of my pocket to pay for the repairs. But that is not what I am upset about.

You see, God gave me 3 warnings to get me to avoid this accident and I missed all three. I know this may seem strange to some people and to other’s you may be able to identify. Warning number one: When my friend offered me the car and I got off the phone after accepting her offer, I felt troubled in my spirit. I mean heavily burdened. I recognized the burden, but didn’t get a clear understanding of what the burden was for. But I did get a fleeting thought that maybe I shouldn’t use the car.

Second warning: On the morning of the accident, I was going to Bible Study before my work from home job and I felt led to ask the lady who usually picks me up, to do so anyway even though the car I borrowed was parked down stairs in the parking lot. But I felt guilty for asking her to come to get me when I had the use of a car. But the Lord was prompting me to do so and I didn’t listen.

Third warning: I pulled into Walmart’s parking lot because I needed some cash back, but immediately felt to pull out the space and leave BEFORE I went in the store, but I ignored the prompting. That was my last warning because when I came out I backed out and hit another car. Bummer.

Of course no one wants to have an accident, especially not while using another persons car. I believe this was a learning experience and a reminder to be more sensitive and to pay attention to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit and obey!

1 Kings 19:11-13 New King James Version (NKJV)

God’s Revelation to Elijah

11 Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; 12 and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.
