I am not scared to close this chapter in my life, but I am scared at what comes after. This sentence was all I was thinking as my brother drove me through Time Square one last time.
After living in New York for three years, I made a huge decision to pack all my stuff and move back down to South Florida.You might think why would anyone want to move out of New York City? All I can say is Jesus told me to. Yes, that might sound crazy but it’s the truth - I was told to end a chapter in my life and turn the page for something greater.
"Many plans are in a man's mind, but it is the Lord's purpose for him that will stand." - Proverbs 19:21
I prayed for God to change me, to lead me closer towards my purpose, and finally Jesus answered. This change is not exactly what I wanted, but I need to grow anyway! I do not understand the process, yet I allow the Holy Spirit to move in my life and guide me. Ultimately, I signed up for God to be the author of my life. I know He will always do more than I think He will, so I will continue to listen to my heavenly Father.
As I am turning the page into this new summer, I realize that this unknown change is a true blessing. God wants us to grow into our purpose. However that change will happen whenever God wants to turn that page. He will not give you all the details or a trailer on what to expect for the upcoming chapter, although I wish He would. This is because God's plans are better than what I can ever imagine. With that being said, I would advise you to seek God’s purpose for you with every ounce of your breath. It is worth seeking!
