Hey Family, I pray that you are all well and are living your best life unashamed. Let’s Dive into this!
Last weekend I took a trip to Arizona to visit my Father for his birthday. I wanted it to be a surprise but I didn’t want to show up and get surprised that he was out of town or something, so I figured I better tell him that i was coming . He had been asking me for sometime to come and visit, come visit , and come to Arizona. My response was ok I’m going to come, or yeah after I get this done or after this over that. If I can remember from the first time I said I was coming, 2 years had passed and gone away. So the idea got dropped on me 2 weeks coming up to his birthday that I should go and visit. Mind you, I just bought a house, still buying furniture and still trying to replenish my monies from all the above. I think that was the main reason why I kept pushing it off because I wanted to have the ample money, I wanted to have ample PTO to take the time off and I really wanted to have it all planned out in a way that I knew I was good.
See that’s just the think with us over thinkers and creatives. We want the timing to be perfect and everything to be right. I begin to take inventory of my life and me and my dad’s relationship. He moved to AZ about 9 years ago and I had visited him 7 years ago. My dad turned 71 on last Friday and I’m 30 and honestly I don’t know how much time we have on this earth being on his side or my side.
So I took a leap of Faith and booked the flight Scared lol because I wanted it to be right and I wanted to be comfortable. Well let me tell you how comfortable I was. I only paid 11 bucks for the flight (taxes and fees) because I had enough Points to buy a round trip ticket 🙌🏾 and to top it off my mom called and told me that she wanted to give me some money for my trip 🙌🏾🙌🏾 the Provision was totally made! All I needed was the leap of Faith of stepping out and saying I’m going to do this, not sure how it’s going to go down but I’m going to do it.
So here’s the lesson. Stop looking for the perfect moment and create one. Literally, create the moment and stop holding off until when you think is the perfect time. This is what God wants us to do. He wants us to walk by Faith and not by Sight. I could had easily put the trip off and said not right now, but until I said yeah, I’m going to do this, the provision was made for it to happen.
Stop looking for “Perfect Time”
Perfect: Having all the required or Desirable elements, qualities or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be
Time: The indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present and future regarded as whole.
I want to encourage you to step out and go with it BLIND, God will bring the Provision and get you to the Finish Line.
