Hey guys! Happy New Year. I am so excited to be blogging again and I do apologize for the delay. I know many of us are believing in God for some amazing breakthroughs and victories this year, so I wanted to share with you all my transition towards the end of 2019 trusting God to provide. May you also believe He is can and will provide for you.
The transition process to walk in purpose has been far from easy. I started my new job as a Teacher August of 2019 and I struggled to adapt financially. Not only did I start a new job, but I had also started my first semester at Florida Atlantic University. With responsibilities such as phone bill, car note, car insurance and credit card payments it was difficult for me to make ends meet let alone purchase school supplies, and work uniforms. All of a sudden, my bank account was going into the negatives, so I had to call to delay the process of certain payments. I was walking into my blessings that I prayed for, but I was being hindered in my finances. I prayed and sought God, but as weeks passed little to no progress had taken place. Then, little by little I saw the hand of God move on my behalf. The principal gave us a deadline to purchase our work uniforms and a teacher who’s stationed next to my classroom opted to purchase me a polo. She didn’t even know me because we had just met, but she told me she would love to buy if for me because she could tell I was a kind person. ( But God!). The teacher I work with in my classroom told me she had a brand-new printer that she wanted to give me for free! ( I really needed a printer for school). The principal said she wanted to increase our pay by some change for those of us who didn’t have our bachelors but working towards it! and right before the fall semester begun I was able to purchase a brand new HP laptop from best buy that was on sell. It was just miracle after miracle. Then my car light turned on for an oil change, a week later another light turned on for my tires. The enemy wanted me to quit, but I didn’t lose faith even when I had to put air every two days for three weeks in my back tire until I could afford to purchase a new one. I didn’t lose faith when I got an email from my blog host, WordPress that if I didn’t pay the annual $200.00, I would lose my website and domain name. I didn’t lose faith when I had cereal instead of a gourmet meal for dinner. I fought to believe God’s word in Psalm 37:25,
“ I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging for bread.”
I still showed up at work, still showed up at school, still served at my local church, still prayed for others, still encouraged others. It hurt, my flesh was crying out, but the thing is I still showed up. When the Lord said, “Be still and know I am GOD.” I was still. After a few more weeks of being still, in October I received a check in the mail! I couldn’t believe it. I cried and cried until I could cry no more. I danced in my room because my God, Jehovah Jireh showed up for me and He can do it for you. Of course, there are still some adjustments I am making to be a better Stewart over my finances as well allowing God to direct me on how to spend and where, but I just want to share with you the goodness of our God. So, don’t be dismayed by what you see in your bank account, don’t give up hope, and please I beg you don’t lose your faith in Him. He will come at the right time. He always does.
Thank you so much for reading and please share with someone so they can be blessed too!
