God Told Me That I Was Getting In The Way With My Foolishness- PT 2/BLOG

IMG_4236.PNG

The following year, my daughter entered High School. She had a good 4 years, graduated, then decided that she would take a year off from school. That didn’t sit well with me at all. I wanted her to go straight to college because I know sometimes when kids take a year off, its hard to get back into the grove. But my baby was determined to go to college. She told me that she was tired, and that she really needed that time off.  I respect that, she broke it down and I got it. I didn’t want her to start a job either, because I KNEW that if she started working, it was a chance that she would get use to the money and never start college. That was happening to so many kids at the time. I made sure she didn’t need for anything.

Often times Nesha  and I would talk about that night God told me that I was getting in the way with my foolishness of who she was going to be. I was very conscience of everything I did, said, and exposed her to.  As I’m watching her grow up, I’m watching GOD work in her life. I’m watching every step of the way with excitement in my heart… asking just what is HE using my baby for? We both wanted to see where God was leading her, and sometimes its not what WE  have in PLAN.

She traveled in the summer with her dad, and when Fall came around she was ready for College. She wanted to become a Lawyer, so she went to school, did 4 years, and received her Bachelors in Criminal Justice. In her last year she went to work for the 36 District Courts here in Detroit where she worked in Forfeiture. She wanted to learn as much as she  could, so she sat with Judges, Criminal Prosecutors, and Defense Lawyers.  She also sat in the court room for every hearing of our former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.  It was a joy to see her on TV everyday.  Knowing in my heart how she felt about being in the presence of a court room and getting a feel of what she wanted to do. She was so well liked and known around the building for her ambition to learn. Several Judges wanted her to leave her department to work for them. She did. But as time passed, she started seeing in the court room how things were done and had a burning desire to help Women, Seniors and Children. She felt as if her need was elsewhere at that time, other than in the court room.

During that time, she helped me to put together The Feeding The Homeless Projects, and also my Youth Group Raisingurls To Women in my home. She enjoyed it and was a big help, more than I could ever explain.

She would always say Momma, I’ll go back to school later to become a Lawyer, but  right now I want to work with Youth and Family Services. I said baby…. this is YOUR LIFE…. you do what you are LEAD to do. She said I just dont want you to be disappointed. I told her NEVER THAT…. I’m just watching God do his work in you, I have raised you, you’re an adult now, you have your own relationship with God, you do what you want to do in life. With my Blessings (( in her heart)) she started working for a Non-Profit Organization. And when I tell you this gurl is doing her thing. I don’t have enough time to share it all. She went right in (( first job)) in 2012 worked her behind off, that THE CEO made her DIRECTOR OF FAMILY GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT !  Yess!!!!  She’s the Supervisor of 6 Clinicians . And I’m looking at God like…… Are you serious? You’re having me to witness all of this? And I’m so happy that he allowed me to share with her that night at 12 years old, that it was all about her. My foolishness had to end, so that I could focus on her, and raise her up, so that she could be used by him. What JOY I FEEL AS I WRITE THIS. THANK YOU JESUS, THANK YOU LORD.

I don’t get a chance to see her work in person, and I have to make her tell me stories about what she does. She believes in helping others and not so much talking about it. But for me, its about seeing what God was talking about. Thanking him for getting me together so that I could raise her properly. So she shares some. But last week, I got to see for myself. We had planned to do a little shopping and get something to eat after she was done at work. She told me to pick her up at 5:00 but someone called and needed food and personal items because she didn’t have anything to feed her son. I told her that I would be there EARLY anyway (( I wanted to see the person)), the young lady jumped out of the passenger side of the truck and ran in the building. My daughter hand her this huge box full of food and items. It made me cry. This lady hugged my daughter so tight and kept Thanking her. I sat in the car saying to myself God, this is what you were telling me? Seeing my daughter help someone who had NO FOOD FOR HER SON… just did something to me. I thought my daughter would be putting criminals in jail, she’s putting food on the table for those we are in need. It made me cry, seeing this in person. She was just 12 years old, here she is 30 and I’m just in awe of God.

This week she started school again!!!! She wants to go higher in her field. She wants to be a Therapist, its funny because they say Criminal Justice cross paths with it, so now to her it make sense why she switched off from wanting to be a Lawyer. Her boss told her, go to school….. bring me the bill! Wow amazing!  

When I tell you my daughter takes care of me…… it brings tears to my eyes. The gifts, the thoughts, the appreciation is over whelming sometimes. Because all I wanted was for her do what SHE wanted to do, and for me to see WHAT IS ALL THIS GOD WAS TALKING ABOUT. I SEE IT FOR MYSELF… Never in a million years when I did my Feeding The Homeless Projects  that she was watching in the background. Never knew that what she was helping me with… SHE RUNS AND DIRECTS. Below is her being honored here in Detroit by city officials, and other members and staff personal all over the city. It blew my mind to hear all of these kind words, and to REMEMBER WHAT GOD REVEALED TO ME THAT NIGHT!  And there is so much to come, and if The Lord say the same.. He’ll let me be here to SEE IT! AMEN!

ALSO, A Happy Happy Birthday to HER today (( 31)) September 3.. and I turned 50 TODAY AS WELL!

God Told Me That I was Getting In The Way With My Foolishness PT 1/BLOG

Image result for trusting god

 

I was in my early 30’s when I was temporary SHUT DOWN ..by God.

Growing up we would have our water, lights and gas shut off and then turned back on, and I hated that. I said that when I “got grown” I’m going to make sure that I pay my bills off once it comes in the mail. And I made good on that promise. All my adult life, I hated to “pay” on a bill because it would catch up with the next month, and seem like it would be double. All my friends use to ask me why not just pay on it, but they didn’t know  the promise I made to myself and why once I was grown. Still till this day, I do NOT pay on my bill, I pay it off COMPLETELY.

One day, my car went down, I had to get a ride to work with my co-workers. Then right after that, we all lost our jobs due to selling of the plant we worked. So, that meant if I didn’t find work soon, my  home services would be cut off. Well, even though my cable was still on, my lights and gas went off because they were on the same electric company. Oh, I was DEVASTATED! I had NEVER in my adult life experienced all of my services being disconnected at the same time. It was cold outside and I couldn’t let my daughter stay in the house with me, so I took her to my parents house and let her stay over there until I heard from God.

I knew he wanted my attention. I have a relationship with him and I KNOW when he needs to speak to me. He knew how I paid my bills, he knew that if everything was turned off, that he would get my attention. He knew how to shut me down, and I KNEW he wanted to speak to me. I lost my job, so I got up in the daytime when it was warm to call around for job openings, and at night I would lay down to think and try to hear from him. My daughter missed her daily routine of how we did things at home and even though she enjoyed being with my parents, she started doing bad in school. I didn’t know it at the time, but I knew her behavior had changed and I didn’t like it one bit.

Nights turned into weeks, and still no word from God. I remember asking people who I knew could help me get my services turned back on, and they turned me down. I was SO MAD AT THEM. I remember writing it all down, so that I would never forget it. Weeks turned into a month and even though it was warming up outside, It was still cold at night, and I had not heard from God.  I wanted to hear from him to see what this was all about so that I could get back to my normal life. What was my normal life? Well, let me share.

There was a time  when it was all about me and my daughter, we would go to the movies weekly, go shopping, out to dinner all the time. Her dad took her to Disney World- Universal Studios- Island of Adventure, and I took her twice… yes a total of 3 times as a child. Her cousins would come over and spend the night, and she would go over to their house. By the time she was 13 years old, she had been to New York, New Jersey, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cincinnati, Florida…  several times with her dad. She loved to travel.

We slowed down going to the movies,  Church every Sunday,  dinner,  and doing things we were use to doing together. It was only her and I.  I was preoccupied doing other things. I started drinking all the time with my friends, having male friends come over at night when she was sleep, talking on the phone all day.  I was going out every single weekend, making sure I was looking good, going shopping EVERY FRIDAY I got paid…. I was something else. So, when my services were shut off, and I KNEW that paying bills was important to me, this was something bigger than paying bills. This is how God got my attention… I knew it….and I was listening.

Days and weeks went by, turned into a month and I was praying, crying, wondering, scared, thinking… I wanted to know what this was about. Why hasn’t God spoken to me yet? One night I went to my parents house to see my daughter and my dad had been playing the Michigan State Lottery since I was born. Every night when it came on at 7:32 pm… he wanted the house QUIET! NO TALKING. He wanted to see what numbers fell, read what he played, then we could talk. LOL Earlier in the day before I had even got there, I had been seeing this one number straight, like ALL DAY. Everywhere I went I saw this number. It was unreal to me. Well, that night in the lottery it came JUST AS I SAW IT. I got up from the family in TOTAL SHOCK and went into the kitchen alone to ask God why did that number come in the lottery? I said you know I don’t play the lottery, so why did it come? He said to me… I know you don’t play, that was to show you that I haven’t forgotten about you and I’m ready to speak.

I went home alone that night to a cold house, and even though he didn’t speak that night, he spoke the next day.

He said. ” La’Crease, the person that Nesha is going to be.. YOU ARE GETTING IN THE WAY WITH YOUR FOOLISHNESS”. I remember so clearly saying….  Who me? What I do?THIS IS ABOUT NESHA?. NESHA? NESHA?… my daughter? He said YESSS, you’re sleeping with men at night, talking on the phone all day and night, you don’t do anything with her anymore, you have totally neglected her, her grades have suffered. You spend all your time with these men and your friends. He said.. You are getting in the way of who she is going to be with YOUR FOOLISHNESS!!! I felt so bad.  I was so SHOCKED. People ask me how do you know that WAS GOD? I said would I TELL MYSELF THESE THINGS? WILL I SIT THERE AND HEAR MYSELF TELLING MYSELF THIS STUFF? WHO DOES THAT? NOBODY!!! This was not ME saying all this shocking stuff to myself. WHO OVER LOADS THEIR THOUGHTS WITH THEIR OWN SINS? These things were  furthest from my mind.

I started thinking about how true every word was. All I could say is God.. I hear you, I’m about to  change my life!!! He meant it, and it wasn’t talking about next week either… he meant NOW! I was so out done. I was done. I thought all that time he wanted to speak to me about ME, and blessings coming, and new place to live, new car, bills paid, husband.. all this other stuff. LOL LOL  LOL its so funny.. so so sooooo funny NOW.. What a naive person I was. One thang he made clear…… YOU BETTA CHANGE YOUR LIFE AND NOW!

I heard him LOUD AND CLEAR… he didn’t have to repeat himself. I got up that next day, made some phone calls and all my service was turned on in a few days. Help came from everywhere. I went and got my baby from my parents, that’s when I found out that she got F’s on her report card. I was mad a little, because my dad and daughter hid it from me. I promised myself that I would get all her grades up by next report card to A’s and B’s and that’s what I did. My car got fixed, and I got a job. I stopped talking on the phone all together. I HATE talking on the phone, if you know me, you know I hate it to this day! I’ll text, but I dont like talking on the phone and people respect that.

I cut off all my male friends sexually.. 18 years STRONG TODAY… yeaaa I know. But it’s worth it. I started spending all my time with my daughter and I was soo Thankful that God stopped Me from Me. I couldn’t wait to tell her what God had told me, she was waiting to hear it too. When I told her , she was just as shocked as I was. She was only 13 years old when this happened. All she kept saying is momma what am I going to be? I couldn’t answer her. I didn’t know the answer. All I knew was that she wanted to be a Lawyer. I knew that I had a special child. I knew that I had to stop all my foolishness. I knew that God had a plan for her life and I had to STEP ASIDE. I knew that God was serious and that he planned on using her, we just didn’t know how. I straighten all the way up, and its so funny now, she always tease me and say .. “Didn’t God whoop you over me?” LOL LOL WE LAUGH.. WE LAUGH.. WE LAUGH!!!!

Tomorrow, I will share where SHE is 18 years later.… GOD IS TRULY FAITHFUL!

Being the Oldest/BLOG

When I was growing up I use to ask God why do I have to be the oldest? Why didn’t I have a big sister or brother to lean on and talk too? Why do I have to look out for my siblings and set the example? Why do my parents always look to MEEEEEEEEEE to make sure they’re okay if they weren’t around ? I hated the responsibility of  looking after them. I just hated that as the oldest. HATED IT! UGH

Now that I’m 4 months away from being 50.. I SEE WHY GOD MADE ME THE OLDEST. Even though I’m opinionated. I realize that I’m wired differently. I have always looked at the bigger picture. I can see set backs, benefits, consequences, greatness, trouble… I see it all. Where my siblings may look at the NOW. Yes, even though we are all different, I see that my personality bring a balance to us as siblings.

While they call me BOSSY, I can sit back and not speak a word. Sometimes even as adults when we have debates and our parents tell us to SHUT THE HELL UP… I am the oldest and they DO listen to me. Still till this day.. Its just amazing how I can see why God made me the oldest.

If one sibling is mad at the other, they always want to know what I THINK. And some times, I’m like figure it out on your own, why do yall always want and need MY opinion? They say because I give good advice and  peacemaker of the family. While that is true, I’m leaning to cut back on my opinion. I’m learning that being quiet sometimes is best. Being the oldest and being quiet about something is when my siblings REALLY WORK IT OUT. Because they don’t know how I feel about the situation. ((LOL)) And I think they have a need to please me, especially when it comes to getting along. They know I don’t play that staying mad days and days. NO WAY!!! Not in this family. Not as me being the OLDEST. They know I will drive to their homes, and make them talk about it.

When it comes to the family functions which we have quite often.. I’m usually the one along with my baby sister who does the planning. My middle siblings just bring what we ask. Its funny because it has always been like that. My baby sister is always on the page with me. We plan everything. The middle two… just play along. LOL

What’s funny is, if we’re planning a function and I have to work, OMG they’ll have a fit! They act like they cannot function without me being there. My mom will call me, my dad, nieces, siblings wanting to know why I cant come.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE MY SIBLINGS.. GOD HANDPICKED THEM JUST FOR ME!! I am the oldest and I get it now! Thank you Jesus.

Wise Words From This Man Of God/BLOG

AL WILSON2

“Fellas, Stop putting your faith and trust..in women that doesn’t know God (I grew up Christian so Dont want to go back and forth about religion..my preference) Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but sometimes the beholder needs some “Reality Glasses” on. Shes “Fine”, got a banging body ETC. will have you confused, twisted and lost. Whats her HEART Like?? Seriously Many can’t see it now, but don’t wait to late to find out that its rotten, shallow, bitter and empty. Notice the signs Bro’s..Notice the signs. Let God LEAD you down the right lane to a woman that Loves God, genuinely cares for you, and has YOUR BACK NO MATTER WHAT!! Your eyes lie..your heart doesn’t. Trust him as the source.. 😎

AMEN!!

I AM La’Crease… and I don’t have to do anything else

My Personal Testimony Feedback ((should I publish))….. Blog

Fotor0802151845

Hey Family!!!

Recently I share with about 100 people my PERSONAL TESTIMONY that happened in the last 2 years. I DID NOT want to share it because it was so close to my heart and I really didn’t want to “go there”. But I’m glad I did. Wow.. never in a million years did I realize how many people were touched, encouraged and inspired by my story. God had been telling me to write down my story and share it… I just couldn’t. I have several books in me.. so when I read the response …. I was really blown away. I’m thinking about having it published on line.

Here are some of the many responses from my “Building My Faith On God’s Reputation”.
Hey Cree I’m trying to catch up with reading these chapters, I just finished this one and all I can say right now is OMG!!!! this is a POWERFUL life changing story. You are blessing my SOUL!!! and I’m learning a lot about my self through your story. WOW!!! Ok on to the next chapter. LOL

Thanks cuz, love the title “Building my Faith on God’s Reputation” and love you even more!

Thank you Cree Cree…. ive been praying for God to keep me grounded…. I love you!

Cree virgo’s are strong go getter folks…Its hard to depend on others…..we are normally the depender “the person You can lean on me..”type people”. May God give us the strength we will always need to survive and lean on Him….our heavenly father and always be Thankful/Grateful for close family and friends.Ham mercy….Hallelujah and Amen …we walk by faith and not by sight.

TO ALL MS. WALKER’S FRIENDS: Friendship is nothing to be taken lightly. Cree always listens to “our problems.” She is finally getting her just dues where we get to listen to her. I am so grateful that she is finally able to share some of the things she experienced. I apologize that I didn’t realize Cree was going through so much because I was too busy complaining about my problems. Let her testimony stand.

this reminds me of Paul when GOD took his sight. Before Paul became Paul his name was Saul and he was a legalistic believer. A pharisee or much like it. He was going to kill the spirit filled christian the new believers in Christ and sadly he thought he was doing the work of the lord but he wasn’t. So God took his sight and he couldn’t see for three days. On the third day GOD restored his sight and named him Paul and he is the biggest contributor to the bible to this day. There is a plan and a purpose for all things so be of good cheer. !

Lord I pray u be a Fence all around Lacrease Walker an everyone ready her testimony…. Give Crease strength like no other an fulfill each an Every dream an desire she has… u have always been there for ppl now set back an Let God take care of u …..I’m grateful to call u MY BIG SISTER U HAVE GIVEN AN SHOWN ME SO MUCH AN I BLESSED FOR THAT…..

Lacrease Walker girl I love you…you are my sister and friend…I can call you out the blue and your always anxious to hear what I have to say and you give me the alternative thinking… ( ok so let me ask you this) lol and I love it…thank you for inviting me and thank you for being you…you are one if gods rare gems….Allow him to use you baby…

Powerful sis! I totally understand about never being sick or having an affliction and then boom and staying focused to listen to the voice of the Lord instead of people! Awesome, anxiously awaiting the continuation! Love u, Be Blessed!

I learned the hard way quenching your spirit in a period of lack, depression, desperation, debt, lust, heartache and pain, turns you away from GOD as HE sits patiently saying, I AM the answer, I AM the way, the Truth and The LlFE, I AM who I AM.. Yet, we want it when we want and HE takes us through season(spiritual ones will define/ breakdown for you soon) in the flesh. I always new winter, spring, summer and fall. But spiritually we have seasons. When you are so consumed on what the world is offering, you are blinded to what GOD has offered to our spiritual life that we begin to wither away and die on the inside cause the mind to wonder, make it had to accept HIS, correct, HIS promises, HIS will and HIS way. We begin to try and figure out what He means for us by ourselves. I never stopped serving the people, spreading HIS word, but I was no longer applying it to myself. I did what I was suppose to on the outside but in the inside I had to die. I LOST everything, the man I thought I loved and loved me (not GOD choice but mine), the job I had and desired to keep, the house I brought but stopped keeping it up, the cars I stopped paying for,, my grandmother that I loved more than myself and anyone else, My friend because I became different, my family because I had changed. But GOD, slowly I had a wake up call and I’m still working on it today. Will tell you more as your testimony continue. Because I see the spiritual seasons in your test.

Wow taken aback….you made me tear up….thanks for allowing me to be apart of this.

Lacrease Walker i truly understand where your coming from in that place as we speak only being led by the voice of The Lord and trying to stay i his presence so he can lead and when i called you i was led to do so that being said when you was in your human nature side he the Lord sent someone in the spirit to encourage you and to remind you that He The Lord is Faithful, God Bless you and I Love you looking forward to reading more to God be the Glory.

That PRIDE thing can get in the way every time. Try the Spirit by the Spirit…I understand this is your journey but if it had been me with all that I had been though to get to the place God wanted me to be. When obstacles came increase faith followed , isolation and shutting down would not be an option for me. You very well know God uses others as vessels to give you the desires of your heart according to his will.
On my spiritual journey I’m learning to increase the relationship but it’s also important to TRUST him, no I mean truly trust him and his will. Thanks for sharing were you was thinking then. I’m interested to know if you had to do it all over what would be different? Love Monica

This is so uplifting reading your story. You really should consider putting it in a book. Also, you have that personality that when people meet you, you are liked. That is how I felt when I first met you. I told Tasha that you are a “people person” and that you were very outgoing and you had a beautiful spirit about you. Looking forward to reading the posts.

That is great and I am glad you are thinking about it. I truly feel it would help many people that are facing different challenges in life. Reading your posts just confirms that we may make plans but God’s plans are the best. I thought I would be in Texas by now and God said no, I have something better for you and I am trusting him.

Cree you know GOD uses us all to be so that others can become you have always been a writer i remember you trying to get me to pen pal. lol and put that with the encourager you have always been it really shows how faith works im grateful for you test which you pass and are able to deliver a testimony to allow someone to read and be free and deliver in their storms and testimony enjoying being bless by this.now im waiting on your books.
I wish u would have just put this in a book sis, cause I feel like u teasing me with the page a day. Though I must admit that I am enjoying it. I LOVE to curl up at the corner of the sofa and read!!

Hey Zee, God is so awesome, keep up the good work. I love you.

We have helped each other and i can really relate because when im doing bad or going through something i to keep it to myself, i don’t like to ask people for help even when i need it ,and it’s funny how everybody think im so strong and got it together, but baby i have wet my pillow many nights lol!!! And not to mention me getting down on my knees asking for strength and guidance. its making me tear up just think about it. And dang i forgot to blockRubie Phillips Knott lol

You are successful! Just like Miss Renee Bates said. You came through it, and your spirit is intact. I am going to share one of my testimonies here. I’ve shared it on my FB page, and ppl have gotten a lot from it. I’m a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. At one point, I was going to take my life, but God stepped in and began a healing in me that is still going on. I’m still here!!!! I didn’t take my life, and I believe God let me live so that I could share my story to reach other survivors. Here is the link. It’s never too late to start your life over, even if you think your life is not worth living

You’ve been a blessing by sharing your story. We have spoken but this before many times but I will say it again we were going through very similar situations yet we thought we were the only one going through. For those reading who often wonder why I call Cree twin that is one reason. The other is from the very first time we ever laid eyes on each other we connected. She knew what I was thinking without me saying a word and I knew what she was thinking. This happened on our very first time meeting. Cree reminded me that there are no accidents in life. I know this is long but allow me to explain. I met Cree online on a message board. We were on at the same time viewing the same thread and had just gone to the same concert and sat a couple of rows apart. We didn’t meet at the concert but we met online and stayed in touch and she’s been my twin ever since. We don’t see each other often we don’t talk often but I have no doubt that Cree is a true friend and I can talk to her about anything and I have. I share things with her that I’ve never shared with others without hesitation. She’s just that kind of person. Without a doubt it was God who allowed us to cross paths and become “twins”. I know this is long but I want others to know God is amazing and he works in mysterious ways for sure. Keep watching and waiting on Him. Be blessed everyone.
Girl i remember when u said u hear God’s voice like he was sitting right next to u having a conversation, I’m glad u were obedient and listen to him and prayed when u did. I had a similar story to yours I was on my way to walmart on getting on the freeway which I really don’t like to drive this particular morning I was very sleepy, but I got up got dressed warmed up my car and headed off, It was a light snow the kind u don’t see until u see it got on 94 as soon as I got on I spinned all the way on black ice around facing oncoming traffic, I was so scared I said Lord please turn me the right way so I can get to this job, I swear to u the radio station change itself to Jesus will work it out, I turned the car around without any problems then the other cars came flying pass me I eventually got to that job praising his name shaking and all

It was so nice to read your story. I had a bit of the same issues as you when it came to sharing my testimony but What God has shown me and consistently shows me to this day is that sharing your story isn’t about you. Yea, it’s your story but it helps you as well as others who hear. I don’t like giving my testimony because I don’t want people to judge certain people in my story and I also don’t want people to feel pity for me. I also want people to see how God provides in the ways of this world. Cause some people just get so stuck in that all Christians should be poor mentality but if we are all poor and homeless who will help the homeless. I, like you, feel like a story should end with the Blesses of God so that people will see him how I see him. What I think we often miss is we are looking for the material things to be the blessing when the blessing is really those moments of comfort and security that he offered when we were down and without a clue on how to get back up. You may not be in a place that looks blessed to the outside world but the fact that you are closer and more secure in a relationship with the provider of blesses you have no need to worry because knowing him means those blessings are going to follow after you without you even having to try. Thank God, For you and your words I know he will continue to bless you.

I agree you’re story is a success, you learned, grew, and kept going forward. You gave and still are giving hope, education and more to others. You are always helping others, feeding the homeless, helping young girls or just an inspiration for people to know that they are not alone and there is light at the end of the tunnel.  

 

Your life story have so much to do with having faith in God through the difficult challenges along with the good one! Also it show how you have self doubt and fear at some point but you always held on to the faith in God no matter what you were going through! I am learning from your story that sometimes God has to slow us down to see what he has in stored for us whether we like it or not.

 

 I laughed so hard!!! I was at work, Lacrease, and the lady next to me HAD to ask what I was laughing so hard about! Yeah, you were heated   I read all 4 parts today, and I’m so blown away! I can relate to what you went through, too.

 

Every living cell in my body wants to move to LA. I went there to try to find a job, and NOTHING came of it. I stayed there about a month, and then came on back home. I figured it just wasn’t the right time.
I got a job here at a doctors’ office, and for the most part, I’m happy here. There is always that nagging about wanting to go back to LA, though. Every time I think about going back, I hear something (God) say don’t leave before the miracle. So I stay. I have no idea what I’m waiting for, but that voice is loud and clear about staying here. I despise Cincinnati, but that voice is unmistakable!
And I don’t know if you knew this or not, but about 9 years ago, I lost everything I owned in an apt fire. At the time of the fire, I thought it was the worst thing that could have ever happened to me. I was wrong. It ended up being a blessing in disguise for me. I disobeyed God before, and I so paid for it! So I am soooo there with you when you’re telling your testimony! So there! I used to think that the fire was just a fire. But I realize since I didn’t obey God, it was really like an eviction! A holy eviction LOL!
You keep listening to Him. You know He’s not going to steer you wrong. I love your relationship with God. It really gives me pause, and makes me stop to listen to Him. When I think about your story, I hear my story as well. Thank you so much for sharing this with us all. You have no idea how many ppl you are going to touch with your story.

 

 I am so intrigued by this story…as much as you write I still hate when it ends…can’t wait for part 5..

God Bless you Ladies. World Changers

 

 

The Bible talks about God preparing a table in the presence of our enemies. I don’t expect them to say a lot of nice things about me, but they are there. Watch me eat.-Tyler Perry

Finding My * your* Purpose in Life ~~ La’Crease’s Blog

Finding my purpose in life.
What is my calling? What are my gifts?

As I sat long and hard about this, having to go back and remember things in my childhood, I can say that it was quite fun. I was amazed at how much I realized that the things that I’m good at today, started a LONG TIME AGO. God had already put these things inside of me, and all this time it was growing. These are the things that I have remembered growing up. I hope that you do this exercise as well.

The Lord- I can remember being on punishments in my room reading the Bible and becoming fascinated with God and all the things that was recorded. It was then at around 13 or 14 when I built a relationship with him and started hearing his voice loud and clear. He spoke to me all the time, telling me things before they would happen. I remember feeling so special everyday, like we were the only ones in the world. Being in my room all the time with no one to talk to, he filled that void. I remember reading about how wise Solomon was, and how I wanted to have wisdom someday. So everyday I would pray, and pray, and pray, and pray, and pray about it. Its so funny thinking back on those days being so young and wanting to have wisdom but I was serious. I truly know for a fact that he has Blessed me with Wisdom and Discernment.

Love- I grew up with a very loving family. We’re even closer in our adult life. My parents planted in us over and over again, that family is not suppose to fight. We could argue and debate, but when its over, we had to hug, kiss and make up right there on the spot in front of everyone. We hated that. Never knowing that it would play a huge part of who I am today. I’m not a person who holds grudges or is revengeful. When I was 17 I was raped and became very angry and hateful. But as time went on, God was there in my heart to restored the Love I had for people. The Love I have also caused me to connect to people that I had no business connecting with, and still till this day, I struggle with that because of the way I grew up. Love causes me to open my heart to the things that we go through as children of God. I believe with all my heart that the Love my parents taught me to have with my siblings, goes hand in hand with my calling. These are important things that I need to complete my purpose in life.

Writing and Reading- Growing up, I would be in my room or in the corner somewhere reading, and writing down my thoughts. I love to visualize things and bring them to life with my way of thinking. I always had a way of making people see things in a different light with my examples. I always get the reaction of ” I never looked at it that way”. I remember whatever I was reading, I had to pause and visualize it in my mind for several minutes . I would read a story and put faces and personalities to the story to bring it to life. My siblings and friends use to always talk about me, as they were outside playing. It bothered me when they did that, because no one understood me. In my 20’s I wrote a love story based on thoughts in my mind about how I would meet my husband. I realized recently that the reason why I hate talking over the phone is because I enjoy writing down my thoughts more. Recently I got serious about writing a book about my testimony within the last 2 years. Even though its hard to revisit many things about it, these important Life Lessons we all can learn from.
