During that time, the economy got worse and I was wondering how I was going to make ends meet. Many people that I knew had, or were looking for a room mate to help share expenses. Car-jackings and freeway shootings were becoming a big problem and my daughter started hanging out with the wrong crowd and getting into lots of trouble. Things were terrible at work and I was at a breaking point. I knew it was time to find another job.
Just about the time that all of these things were weighing heavily on me, my cousin told me that his wife's younger sister had decided to move to Texas with her dad when she graduated high school, which was a couple of months away. My cousin had made plans to drive from Texas to California to pick her up and said that if I wanted to move, we could arrange for all of us to make the drive together. The seed had sprouted and roots had taken hold.
I knew the decision had already been made but it took about a month before I could actually voice it. It was hard leaving my Grandma and other family members but I was sure that this was God's plan for me. I gave notice at work, sold almost everything I had and drove to Texas. On the way I remember feeling like I was going home even though I had never been there.
I had almost no belongings and only a small amount of money but within six months of my move, I had purchased a brand new house. Owning a house was never even a thought before this time because it was so expensive in California, but God had it all planned out. Years in advance He orchestrated the circumstances that planted the seed of a thought to make this move, and He developed it to fruition through a series of unrelated events to bring it about in His perfect time.
Thank you Lord, for taking care of me and guiding me in the day-to-day. Thank you for this home and all that you have provided. I love you my Ish. ~ In Jesus Name, Amen
