For the last year I’ve been telling my friends and loved ones that I was moving to Texas. Well, the time has finally arrived and I’ll officially be a resident of Texas as of July 1, Woohoo! This decision and transition did not come easy though. It’s actually very bittersweet because while I’m happy to be moving closer to my immediate family, I’ll be moving farther away from other family members and friends who are near and dear to my heart.
When I first decided I wanted to move I actively searched for a job and had a few interviews which did not land me employment. So of course, I became nervous and hesitant about moving. I began to doubt myself and thought maybe I should just stay in MD. However, in the back of my mind I always knew my heart was in Texas so I had to find a way to get there.
So I had a few conversations with my best friend about feeling like I wanted to step out on faith and just move to Texas without employment. And to my surprise each time we talked about she would tell me to just do t. I told her about how I’ve been praying about it and I feel like while it wasn’t the most logical thing to do, I believed it was what God wanted me to do. I put a plan in place and established a time line about when I would realistically move to Texas. The date was set, June 29.
As the day drew near, I began to get nervous of course because I started to doubt what God told me. I said to myself, “Self, how are you going to pay your bills and what about health insurance?” I also began to tell my close friends what my plan was and some of them (who shall remain nameless) gave me a blank stare as if I had two heads and was talking Vietnamese. However, I didn’t fret and I pushed forward anyway.
So if you who read the previous blog post, (See who got next?) I went to a wedding in Nawlins’. Well prior to attending the wedding, I applied for a contractor position and scheduled an interview the day after the wedding because I figured I would stop in Houston for the potential employment opportunity. Well God saw differently. Not only did I have one interview but two other agencies called me and I had two additional interviews. Before leaving to return to MD, I was offered not only a full time but part time employment opportunity also. I could have shouted!
I would have never thought in all my years that God would’ve saw fit to grant me favor of this magnitude. So on this day, I want to encourage someone to step out on faith because eyes haven’t seen and ears haven’t heard what God has in store for you!
