It's been a little over a year since we moved from MS to AZ. ✈️🌵 Upon release of my book, #TheOneDayHope I traveled constantly doing book signings, speaking engagements, being apart of panels, etc. for 3 years while living in the South.
After moving to the West lots of those phone calls/emails ceased and I had no idea what God was doing. My norm became abnormal (in my eyes). 🤷🏽♀️ My family joined @valley_gate and I began serving in the Finance Department behind the scenes. In our small little room (no really like ONLY 3 people can fit in there) we count, record, and leave - many times after the church is all cleared out and everyone else has gone home.
After being in the "light" I took the backstage route and was ok with that for as long as God saw fit. It's been a year and 2 months since I started "counting tithes and offering". My impatience became patient with purpose because I held on to the promise!
After 400+ days of serving behind the scenes my voice was heard today on stage by default. I wasn't the first choice, but because I was willing to be second God made me first.
I've said all that to say. Don't rush the seasons! What God has for you is for you. Bloom where you are planted and serve in whatever capacity unto Him and not unto man! Your gifts WILL make room for you even if it's only for 30-40 seconds!😊 THANK YOU Pastor @dmoe38 and First Lady @mamaj_5 for this responsibility today. I'd dare not take it lightly!💒💗 #TeamVGC #WomensEvent #Devoted
