Battlefield: the Transition Pt. 1



Dear God,

I just prayed that you reveal to me if this move is right for me. I asked that you make an end to anything that is not in your will. So far, I’ve planned to move out. I planned to move out without an income or job. I’ve been fantasizing a lot about the new place, my new life. Starting over. Having a fresh start. I’ve been faith-ing it. Trusting that no matter what it looks like, that you are able and if you did it for others than you will most certainly do it for me. Everything will fall into place. 

I even feel weird moving forward with this mindset because in my old life, I had to be in control, in my new life with you, I do not want control. I want you to be a part of every decision I make. Shoot, now I do not even want to make basic decisions without you. Lord, what will I eat today? What will I wear today? Nothing is too mundane for you.

Watch this. I’ve found what seemed to be the perfect living arrangements. I began exploring income options and have been applying for positions. So I heard back from the owner renting an affordable condo and scheduled a viewing. I’ve studied the place and how I would decorate it. I fixated on it. I know that’s not a good thing. Then, I heard back from a job. I’m thinking, OH MY GOD, look how awesome you are. Then it boiled down to the job being a scam, and the owner of the condo cancelling my viewing the day before my appointment because he had rented it. WHAT?! ARE YOU SERIOUS? All I could do was laugh. 

So now the question becomes, was that the warning shot before the real thing? Am I being hasty? Is it not your will? *Now, one of the ways God speaks to me is through words. I may have said that before.* So although what someone is saying in totality is not for me, my holy spirit will pick up on certain words. As a lesson, I’m learning to listen more even if I disagree with what is being said because God can speak through anything and anybody. 

Just like the Bible, in reading it, you shouldn’t be looking at it in black and white, you should be expecting the Holy Ppirit to reveal something to you specifically for you.  Sorry for the tangent, so my mom came over and wanted to check up on me and she said that she wanted to make sure I wasn’t being hasty. Hmmm. There’s that word haste again. Ok. God. Maybe I am. I look at everything like a sign but God I just need to know if I should still expect you to make this move or sit back?

A part of me feels like I should push forward and try you. Rely on you. But I want what you say is best for me more than I want what I want. Thank you for allowing these things to happen because either way my faith is going to be strengthened. You are either going to continue to protect me and provide for me in my home or you are going to protect and provide for me as I move on. Either way, I know you are able and I have faith in you. Lord, I rebuke the spirit of doubt and confusion in this time. God I want to remain focused on you. All of my days!!!!

I Absolutely Love You God

First of all God I absolutely love spending time with you. Like for me there’s no place I’d rather be. I’m okay with no one understanding me on that  for better words I don’t have any desire to hang out with friends. I know they say I need a break, and I do, but my break is solitude and Bible and prayer time. That’s my social time and if you have never felt that way, well, welp oh well, that’s how I feel and I really don’t want to hear anyone’s opinion about it. God I love you and all of your ways and I love spending my time with you. Like I need you. I need to choose you. Not like I need you because you could end my life at any moment but I need you as in my heart desires you. A lot of times I want to shut down from the world because I want my time with you. That’s why it will be important for my husband to understand that. Maybe on Friday night, he could sit beside me while I’m journaling and journal too or listen to a sermon or read the Bible. My God, My God. I’ll be married and

The Next Step

God, I learned a few things today. They’re all jumbled up inside so I ask that you please help me get them out. Wow, where do I begin? I watched the video with Pastor D where a few things stuck out. One of the things was being in God’s order and marriage. I begin to feel like “where do I go from here?”. I’ve left my old life and got myself in order, but what’s next? I want to grow deeper with you but was unsure of what comes after this. Not that I’m trying to rush you but I felt more like I was becoming complacent and letting you down. Like I was missing something or wasn’t doing something for you. Also, I’ve been desiring marriage but I don’t want to focus on it in fear that I’d be idolizing it. But this video sermon talked about order and marital relationships. And I realize that next step in order for me is marriage. But God I have a lot to deal with in regards to marriage in which the video also revealed. His message was able to reveal to me that I have some wounds that need

He Is...

The other day my friend and I were talking and she was going through her own trials that seem to have her down. She said she couldn’t sleep and couldn’t stop crying. It seemed like everything was getting her at once and she could only take it one day at a time. Let me give you some history on my friend, a little back story. We met in a time where I was uncertain about where I was with God. I knew God, and prayed to God, but I had cut Jesus out of my life. Remember in one of my previous journals I mentioned how I believed the hype that worshipping Jesus was idol worshipping and it was a sin. Because after all, idol worshipping was breaking one of the commandments. Yeah, someone whom never cracked open the Bible at least knew the basics right? WRONG! Well anyway, she and I had gone on a dinner date to Baltimore and on the drive home, we began talking about Jesus and I asked who Jesus was to her. She said God. I said how I felt Jesus wasn’t God. He may be real, he may have existed, bu
