Until you allow God to direct you to the people He wants in your life, you will continue to surround yourself with people who will cut off your strengths. Connection should be spiritually led and not fleshly!

I often wondered why I was still at my job for so long after praying, crying, seeing the visions of God, and getting spiritually led confirmations from others. I was stressed and started to feel God forgot about me. I began to even lose faith.
So focused on the “when” I was blinded and began to neglect the reason of my process. The reason why I was still being groomed and prepared to transition into greatness. Of course God convicted me and that led me to correction.
I started to find the paradise in my trial. I started to eliminate all distractions and placed my eyes back on God. You see we get so caught up on ourselves and what we want, we forget what God wants. Let me share with you what God shared with me.
“My child, I am the master baker. You may know the simple ingredients that goes into your cake but you don’t know the special ingredients that goes into MY cake. If you knew my specialties, would faith longer be a necessity for you?”
So to the person that is having a hard time understanding your process remember God wants to display you. He wants people to walk by and to see the light shining that He placed in you. He wants to draw people to your story. Stop trying to lead God and let Him lead you!
Renew my mind
Restore my heart
Revise my body
Rebirth my soul
Restart me Lord.
A year ago on this day, God planted me in a new garden to blossom better in His grace. I had been praying for this change for so long but when my prayers actually began to manifest I immediately felt trapped by fear. Fear of living on my own. Fear of change. However I would later discover that this garden would bring new beginnings of restoration. Restoration on various levels. I was no longer alone. I was now in a garden surrounded by the love and grace of God. I was now in a garden full of flowers that God gracefully planted. Flowers of love, flowers of purpose, flowers of healing, flowers of strengths, flowers of peace, and most of all flowers that led me to my destiny. Little by little He restored me, He helped me embrace who I was, He nurtured me, He empowered me to overcome any season I faced, and lastly He gave me the confidence I needed to shine throughout my garden with radiance. So on this day, December 12th, I simply say Thank You God. Thank you planting and growing me!! Happy One Year Anniversary To Me!!!
Forgive me for trying to intervene on Your plans for me. Forgive me for doubting You. Doubting Your abilities to change any situation. Continue to help me seek the beauty in my struggles. Continue to convict me because I know it will bring correction. Continue to make me whole. Continue to help me blossom into the woman of God You designed for me to be.
Signed Your Imperfect Child
