4 years after the big faith move

It is February 29th, 2024 and I frankly cannot believe it's been 4 years since I moved out of New Jersey. Taking a leap of faith in a capacity I have never had the courage to do. In these last 4 years I moved across the country TWICE. From NJ to CA and then to NC! Both on following what God told me to do.


What I have learned in the last 4 years is that not everyone will agree or “get it.” Especially those closest to you. When this happens, I have to remind myself that even people  had things to say about what Jesus was doing!! Who am I to think that it won’t happen to me. I am not saying that it is an easy thing to face. But we have to do it. 

 

I recently had a family member tell me how much they thought I was wasting my life being a nanny. I was appalled. They were short of calling me a slave by 2 syllables (in Spanish). Called me an indoor house worker and that I was just wasting the talent that I have. I proceeded to tell them that this is where God had me. I was being obedient, whether it made sense or not to them. God would let me know when the time to shift was and that's what I waited for. I was not going to go ahead of God and put myself in a predicament that I would have to pray myself out of instead of being patient.


I later went on to tell them that me being obedient had a lot of lessons within it. There were emotional and spiritual things I needed to learn. I needed to heal in certain areas and in other areas put into practice what I had learned in the last few years committing myself to God. I was there to help the family I was working for.

Show God’s light and love, through my acts of service. Not only within the realm of what was my job role, but praying for them even when I had no idea how to. God had me save this kid’s life more times than I can count. (babies/toddlers learning how to get the hang of eating is very scary at times.)



Praying for people especially when they are in a season that you once dreamed of having can be very eye opening. What will you do with being close enough to be in it, but it not be yours? Can you remain humble and not allow your heart to turn bitter? Will you learn when to speak on things or when just to stay quiet and just process what God allows you to see? There is so much that comes with just being where God has placed you. Whether it’s in someone's home, at an office, or at the grocery store at a specific time. The examples are endless. Life is full of lessons. It is up to us if we want to learn from them. 


I’ve learned how to be kinder… a lot kinder. Hold space for people when they are going through a tough time. Instead of always voicing what I thought they were or should be doing. There is so much behind the scenes that we do not know that is going on in someone’s life or what God may be orchestrating. Learning to lean on God to lead you how to show up in these situations. Because one day it may be you on the other side.




Lastly, I've had to learn how to trust myself and God more. I can make a decision on my own and it will be MY OWN decision. Not a group meeting. God did not have all of those people in the room when he told you. You learn what it means to create a new foundation of trust within yourself, when in the past it was questioned, looked down upon, rejected, and more. What are you going to stand firm on? Their word or his. It takes many little steps and seeing, wow he continuously is showing up for me. For others it’s, he showed up in this one big thing, I know he will show up in the small.


Our life paths may not be exactly the same, but know that we can grow and learn from other’s experiences. Take it to God and ask for discernment on what you should do. Is this an idea/path he wants you to take, or is this something you keep in your back pocket for someone else. Discernment will save you from being in the wrong spaces or people. Continuously praying for this in these last four years, transformed my life. We put our trust in God above everything else. 


If God is calling you to make big life decisions, I want you to take time to pray and fast about it. I believe in you. I want you to believe in yourself too. I want you to let God change your life for the better. Take one step at a time, or one LEAP at a time. Whatever the way, I pray you make it to the other side of the thing God told you to do. <3 I love you.
