As I was preparing myself to be married and move to Louisiana, I knew God had a purpose for Brad & I at the church he had been attending. We had gotten conformation that this is the place Abba wanted us to be at. I had served in two ministries at The River while I resided in Michigan, The Awake Café (coffee bar) and The Nursery. I was unsure when I left what exactly what my plans were when I arrived here in Louisiana. I just knew that I wanted to follow God’s will, no matter what it entailed.
Brad and I continued to pray persistently…
Even when it felt like we were never going to get an answer, we knew even if we couldn’t see that things were being set up for us, they were, and that God would reveal to us his perfect plan in his perfect timing. We often thought, “Should we be doing something?”. We continued to ask Abba to prepare us for what he had already spoken over our life. We often sought out advice from elders to seek out wisdom. Waiting is hard at times, but we trusted Abba and his plan for our life.
I went through a lot of change and growth before arriving here. I endured many trials, including looking at surgery just two days before our wedding (NOT TODAY SATAN). I will write about that in a later post. What kept me going were Abba’s promises. Declaring them over myself and our life daily! We know as Children of God, we have authority! When we speak The Word of God, it moves mountains and shifts our focus on what is truly important, Abba!
God’s plan has been slowly revealing itself the longer we are here and let me tell you, it’s a lot bigger than I thought! I know that I can makes as many plans as I want, but his plan and purpose always prevails. “We humans keep brainstorming options and plans, but GOD ’s purpose prevails.-Proverbs 19:21 MSG
If you are in a season of waiting I encourage you to… “Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done. Sing to him; yes, sing his praises. Tell everyone about his wonderful deeds. Exult in his holy name; rejoice, you who worship the Lord. Search for the Lord and for his strength; continually seek him.-1 Chronicles 16:8-11 NLT
Seek guidance and accept correction, this makes you wise! “Take good counsel and accept correction— that’s the way to live wisely and well.”
Proverbs 19:20 MSG
Know that God has a time for everything!
“For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.
Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1, 11 NLT
Read his word.
spend time with Abba, he loves you.
& DECLARE his word over your life.
