The Simple Life

When it all starts to make sense:

There are things I have been thinking about for a while and asking God for clarity. You know those times when you are waiting on an answer for a while you begin to wonder if it is madness or just a figment of your imagination?

On Jan 30th 2019 at the Patriarch’s birthday celebration, one of our sisters said something that blew my mind. She said that we can trust God when He gives His word no matter how long it takes. As an example, she tracked back to a desire God placed in her heart in 2011 that is just coming to fruition.

Fly into 8th March 2019 when I sat in fellowship with my brother and he begun talking about things and opening up perspectives he could only have heard from God. You know those things you have not shared with a soul and have been asking God about for a while? Those are the things he was talking about and explaining the undergirding spiritual dimension. You know that feeling of wah!!!!!

For real, there is no way he could have known the things unless God Himself revealed them. It was then that I understood…God is INTENTIONAL. He knows what is needed to ensure that I keep to the path and all the comfort I would need. He knows who needs to go and who comes, how hot or cool to make it and how much I can actually handle if I walk with Him.

2019 has been very different from what I expected it to be. I don’t think I was listening carefully when I asked God what it would be about or I just assumed I knew what was coming. A lot of it has seemed random but the conversation with my brother has confirmed that nothing is random or unexpected in the plan of God. I just have to be more vigilant to hear His Voice. It is one thing to know that God is intentional and see it working in others’ lives. It is something totally different to come face to face with this intentionality irreversibly directed straight at you. Nothing short of mind blowing! I am choosing to lean into the intentionality of God no matter what comes my way.

All things are working for my good, yeah
‘Cause He’s intentional, Never failing
I know that all things are working for my good, yeah
He’s intentional, Never failing
