“Won’t He do it!” That was my caption on a Instagram post of me when I first moved.
I am eternally grateful for that day. Sometimes I look back and think Wow!
This is for that unemployed or underemployed person.
I got fired (ME! I don’t get fired I get promoted) from a job that I loathed in 2014. I mean h8ted!
When I got fired, I did not have a dime in the bank and when I filed for unemployment it got denied.
Eventually I did receive it, but for two months God literally provided manna each and everyday.
I didn’t get evicted. I ate everyday sometimes too much (stress eating) and I never wanted for a thing.
Did I mention my car broke down?
Just like God used a raven to feed Elijah, he used people I didn’t even particularly like to sustain me. 🤷🏽♀️ It was humbling to have someone fill your tank up randomly.
It didn’t stop there. I found another job, but that door closed as well. I kid you not…not one time but I got fired twice! That’s when you know God is up to something!
Then one day a man called me with a contract position in Evansville, Indiana – about three hours away.
At first I thought it was fraud as I could barely understand him but as we talked I discovered it was legit. I accepted by faith.
I drove to Evansville and although I had good intentions, I knew I could not commute daily.
On the way I prayed, “Lord, I just want to hear 3 words when I get there: work from home.”
When I got there they gave me a laptop, access card to their office in Indy (that I didn’t even know about) and told me I could work from home! 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽 Ephesians 3.20!
Tears are in my eyes now as I remember.
During that time I would go to church and get so emotional because God literally kept me.
But like most contract positions…it ended.
Back on unemployment in 2015. This time I had a little change (savings- I got smart) and I’d returned back to school to finish the 5 courses I needed for my degree.
I also joined the choir (I can’t sing but I swear I can).
Some of those songs that we sung cut so deep. One said, “I know you’ve been waiting for a miracle.” Hunty, let me tell you I would be singing and ugly crying 😩trying to keep it together in front of 2000 people!
I loved it though, I loved ministering to people even while I was going through.
As my unemployment ended, I got an email.
This time it was a man talking as if I knew him but I had no idea who he was or what he was talking about.
Finally, I learned it was a contract position as a trainer, my dream position and I would fly all over the Country training (I want to scream THANK YOU right here!) God is so faithful! I didn’t even interview, I just completed a questionnaire!
For the next 6 months I traveled from coast to coast and in between. It was an amazing ride and I met some amazing people.
Keep in mind I said this was a 6 month position.
Here I am today June 1, 2018 about to celebrate two years with that same company AND I relocated to Florida! Every door opened for me to get here!
Today as one of peers and I were talking I thought, I love my job. Don’t get me wrong they get on my nerves sometimes but when I look back 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
Now I am asking God to build my dream home, check back next year to see how this manifests! I will title that blog post – He Did It Again!
I can’t thank Him enough!!! This is why I began writing Trust Without Borders.
God is so faithful!
I had no intentions of posting this – I was sound a sleep but then a noise woke me. I started scrolling through pictures on Instagram and the next thing I know here I am thanking God for how He kept me, for how He delivered me.
As always, my prayer is that just one person (even it is just me) be encouraged by my transparency in this post.
He is the same God that did it for me. That ushered me to where I am today. In closing, don’t think or limit God to what you can see – I never thought I’d be 990 miles away but…
As I look back today, I KNOW that ALLthings work together for my good! (Romans 8:28)
What I thought was a problem was part of the process!
So to answer my initial question, Won’t He do it?! Yasss! He will! 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽
Okay let me try to get some rest.
