The more I read and learn along this spiritual journey, the more I believe God gives us clues to our destiny. We have all been in situations where we had this pull that the situation was not for us. I feel the same is true for purpose. For a little over a year, I had this desire to live more in the city. I mean most things I did from Friday- Sunday were in the city. I looked on and off and just found nothing. There was no pull to any of the places I visited. There were ones I almost said yes to, but something always happened that left a feeling that it was not the place I was supposed to be in. I often searched along this area in the city where I daydreamed about moving to. Each place I found I was like “ain’t no way I can pay that.” But it was the oddest thing, there was a deep pull to the area. I even had a friend often tell me that the place I will move to might be a placed that I’ve visited or always wanted to live around. Each time in my mind I was like “Girl if I’ve been there and didn’t stay there, it’s because I couldn’t afford to pay anything there!” LOL Fast forward a year and here I am at the place I once visited and in the area I always wanted to live (not to mention there was a special that made it affordable woot woot). This morning I was reading and reflecting and I began to see how there were clues placed by God as to where I was supposed to be. I can’t tell you how many times I exited the freeway and looked near the street where I now reside. I actually was drawn to this particular street. It was the oddest thing. But it was timing that came in to play as well. I wasn’t ready for the blessing. Maybe there was work that God needed to due in me such as having faith that “all things work for the good of those who love the Lord who are called according to his purpose.” This new place is a purposeful place. It allows be to be in an area in which I have easy access to places for my photography and I am now closer to the church I attend. Now if I could only consistently be on time (pray for a sista). I think if we surrender our plans sometimes and say, “please show me where I’m suppose to go or be” then we can truly allow God to work things out. And I think He will provide you with those clues or signs to purpose. I look back on so many things and see how there were signs leading to me discovering things I was meant to do. So to you out there reading this, don't be afraid to surrender. And if you are afraid it's ok, just take steps despite your fear and allow God to direct you to your purposeful area and you will see how great it will be!
