Trust Without Borders: Hurricane Irma

When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. Isaiah 59:19

Pray for those in the path of Irma. CNN said it’s 16 million people…my daughter and I are 2 of those people.  

We’re new to this.

Yeah, we had tornados and snow in Indy which caused me to think last hurricane season that Floridians panicked over a drop of rain. Now after Harvey and the threat of Irma approaching, I feel differently.

This week has been chaos at gas stations, at the grocery and uncertainty.

Thank you to all those who have checked on me, I am blessed to know some amazing people – one of my trainees called me all the way from Cali yesterday.

While I maybe feeling a little anxious and missing my mother bossing me, this morning I remembered #trustwithoutborders .

Trust without borders is what led me to take a leap of faith and move 990 miles to a place where I didn’t know anyone. Trust without borders led me through when my mother got sick and eventually passed away…to leave my son…my family & friends…my church…my life.

My sister said, “you are going through a lot.” I am…I’ve been through a lot but the keyword is THROUGH.  I know He said “I’ll never leave you nor forsake you” so I keep going until I reach the other side…I might cry doing it…I might be on the verge of giving up but then He gives me the grace to keep going.

I know God led me to this place for a purpose and the rain the winds and the waves can’t stop God.

Circumstances will have you questioning if you missed God…have you wanting to retreat…have you questioning your blessings…even after EVERY door opened for you to be where you are.

Recently I have encountered a few storms at work, a few challenges with people but I am still walking this journey by faith. I know it is a set up for what’s next – I have been praying some big bold six figure prayers and I am waiting with expectancy.

So if we stay through Irma, I trust God. If we go to Indy, I trust God.

In my transparency on IG & my blog, my intent is not for likes but to bring God glory & to encourage just 1 person to trust God and not give up.

Be encouraged!
