About My Relocation

ISadk96e705d6e1000000000The past few months have been tumultuous! My spirit has been doing flip-flops! I believe God was trying to get me to a place of surrender concerning the next phase of my life.

Many years ago, when God brought me to Florida (where I currently live), I always knew it was going to be a temporary place. I moved here because God shut some doors and sent me here and I ended up caring for my father until the end of his life. Initially, I said I would return to New York (my home city) when that happened, but I ended up staying 6 more years. I’m been in Florida a total of 12 years now and I can sense that this season is just about over.

I feel that God is leading me to another place and I do believe that place is Atlanta, Georgia. Years ago, I had one focus for my move, but today I feel quite different. I have a vision to work in real estate, own rental properties and flip houses and honestly, I have considered doing that here, but my city is filled with old houses. I figured out long ago that this is not the place.

Since God reignited my vision, I have been looking at Atlanta Georgia properties and it’s clear to me that this is definitely the place where my vision will come to pass. Every day when I get my notifications from Trulia (a real estate site) I am filled with excitement. I know God has a purpose for me to move to that city and I am excited.

Recently, all of my holiday plans have changed. I ended up getting an unexpected vacation from work this week and my friend who was coming for Christmas won’t be here until after Christmas. I was sitting on pins and needles trying to figure out how quickly I can make this move. I’m not sure, but time will tell. It could be soon and it could be early next year. I am okay with whatever God says. Timing is everything.

My life is in His hands. I am no longer anxious or focused on the things I used to be focused on. I figure that whatever God’s greater plan is, it can happen while I am pursuing my dreams. I just need to be in the right place at the right time and that is where I plan to be.ISu0gl51zjoi6e1000000000

Made to Move

movedI received a word a few months back from the son of my prophetic mentor and it said that I was going to be “made to move’. Well immediately I thought it was a geographical move until his father gave me a word that said “settle down”. lol This is exactly why you have to pray and get the correct interpretation of what God is saying.

As I began to seek the Lord I knew it was not a geographical move at this time and I kind of felt it had something to do with my childcare job. I had been taking care of my little toddler in his mothers and grandmothers home, which seemed ideal, until things started changing..

Without going into detail, suddenly there was a house guest and a stream of people coming and going while I was watching this child. Honestly it was frustrating because it would upset my routine with the child among other things.

These past few weeks I have been so vexed in my spirit and I didn’t know why, but after the grandmother called and asked me if I had seen her wallet (her tone seemed a tad bit accusatory), I got the message. Thank God I was off the day the wallet went missing!  But it kind of annoyed me that she would even think I would do such a thing.

Well the straw that broke the camels back was yesterday (I won’t go into it) and after getting no sleep, I knew I had to make this change and I made it this morning. I was MADE TO MOVE from their house to my house! The burden that I have been carrying lifted and as I helped his mother move some toys and stuff over to my house I knew everything was going to be okay.

At first he cried, but in two minutes he as happily watching Finding Nemo and I’m not ust saying this, but he seems very happy with the change!

I am learning that it’s very important to listen to God and move when he says move. There may be more to this story. I will keep you posted!

John 2:5

New International Version (NIV)

His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

Emotions and change

My emotions were all over the place yesterday. Honestly I think I am having a hard time making a change and it is making me miserable. Sometimes we get stuck in our ways and God wants a better life for us but we have to move. 

I have been feeling that I need to make a geographical change and my first excuse was that I don’t know anyone there. Well right after I said that some long time friends contacted me on my facebook page and they are living in the city where I am supposed to move.  Well there goes that excuse…But it’s still not easy. I need provison as well. But if I know God where he guides he will provide.

I realize that I need to be careful about my emotions and it’s connected to this change. Honestly I’m embarrassed about my behavior yesterday. I think acted like a emotional nutcase and what I really need to do is keep my mouth shut and work on a plan to obey God. I will keep you posted.

 Ruth 1:16:

16 And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God

Major changes

Today I started my day and had to rush out to an 11:45 appointment. Well as I was travelling I was admiring the scenery of Florida. I’ve grown to love Florida. It took some time because I was raised in a four season climate. So I’m riding along admiring the city and thinking “I’m not going anywhere”.

But by the end of the day I sensed that my time here is coming to and end. You see I fasted and by the end of the day I sensed a new clarity and direction from God.  Sometimes God gives you a heads up about change, and then he gives you a little more. I sense major changes and perhaps a move.

 1Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
