I never thought in a million years I'd be at a place in life where I'm passionate about empowering women in the faith, sharing the truth of God and the good news about Jesus Christ. I remember being in a rush to want to be married and have kids. I never took the time to get to know God truly myself or make goals and have standards. This mindset was leading me down a road of destruction.
A Man's heart plans his way, but the LORD directs his steps. (Proverbs19:21 NJKV)
What I've learned from my 27 years of living is that no matter how many plans we create for ourselves, while the effort may seem harmless and innocent, God's purpose for our lives will always prevail. Case and point, I had a plan when I was 21 to be in college , gain a degree and become a crime scene detective by the age of 24-25. I also wanted be married with children. Seems innocent right? Truth is I was not ready for that commitment at 21 or 25 and simply put I believe that was not apart of God's Will for my life . However the more I matured and time past I met women from all over who experienced different forms of spiritual warfare and they always came to me for advice and they would leave in a better spirit. I didn't realize that this was in fact God showing me that this is part of my purpose. To counsel and empower women to speak to those dry bones in their lives to invoke change!
What I love about God is that He knew we would be where we are today. He tells us in Jeremiah 1:5 that He knew us before we were even formed in our mothers womb. He knows all of our flaws, and ways yet He still chooses to love us unconditionally and fit us into His perfect Will. My previous plans weren't impossible but, I did not include God in those plans. I wanted to go to school in the beginning because I kept being pressured to. I wanted to be married because my friends were getting married and having children. But after going through the trials and test and being educated about God and His son our Lord Jesus Christ , I'm actually content with the season I am in.
Now I bring every goal and Idea to God and He orders my steps to get there. Today I'm going back to school this time to achieve my degree in hopes of opening my own Christ centered counselling services. I didn't receive this revelation of breakthrough until I truly spent time with GOD.
Sister you're reading this and you maybe wondering when your breakthrough is going to come and the truth is, the breakthrough is here now! All you need to do is acknowledge God so He can direct you to where you need to be. Have Faith that the breakthrough you stand in need for is coming and choose to trust the LORD no matter how long it takes to come. Hebrews 11:1 says Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
What are you hoping in God for this season ?
