A little Testimony

I was clearing out my hard drive and stumbled upon these two pictures. This was in 2016. I was buying my vision board to pin all of MY PLANS on it. Not once did I ask God … What plans do you have for me? How do you want to use me? Everything I went home and placed on this vision board was flesh-led instead of being spirit- led.

Back then I didn’t even think it was important to consult God before my plans. It was more of “well this is what I want so God will make it work out”. I had it all wrong.

The second I got baptized – the Holy Spirit led me to basically clear the board. EVERYTHING. I removed the year stamps on the goals eg. open my own private practice in 10 years… and placed it back on the board. This time around I trusted God with His plans and His timing – I watched my life change drastically.

I placed more bible verses to memorize, more declarations over my life and the goals became less flesh driven and more purpose – heaven driven.

My little testimony? I changed everything on that vision board February 27,2017. June 29, 2017 – I left a horrible work situation (a job god told me not to take in the first place) and was unemployed. In three short months, that “ten year practice” goal turned into an October 2017 reality.

It was only by the work of God – He opened those doors, aligned the right people, location, provided overwhelming family and friend support & the suppliers. God is truly amazing. I was mind blown at the end of the journey. I can’t wait to see what He does next. He is faithful. Trust His timing.

Will you trust His timing today?

lots of love,

  2. Your testimony makes me smile. God’s plans were so much better! I used to do the same thing…plan plan plan and not include God. I fell on my butt, but He set me straight lol His plans for us are far greater than anything we could ever think for ourselves. You testimony proves that.

  4. Praise the Lord!!! Your testimony reminds me of the scripture ‘A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps’ Proverbs 16:10.
    God knows what we need just when we need it.
