If You Say Go
For as long as I can remember, I have tried to follow God’s leading.
When He asked me to wait, when most of my family moved to the UK, I waited. I hated being away from them, and everything they were experiencing, that I was missing out on, but I waited.
When, after 5 years of waiting, maturing, growing (not in height, obviously), He said that I could go, and be with my family…I went. I was uprooted from the comfortable and awesome garden of my home, and was planted into a garden, where everything was literally unknown to me. I’m so glad that I made the move though.
I had to find a new job (where my previous work experiences were null and void, because things were done differently here.), a new church, new friends, new everything. For me, it helped that my sister and her husband, as well as my mom, went to a church already. I began attending that Church, and was introduced to Jackie Lloyd, who helped open a door at my current place of employment (I’ve been there for 7 years now!). I was introduced to Graeme Baldwin, who got me involved in the Kid’s Ministry. My sister, and brother in law encouraged me to join the worship team…I’ve been a member of both ministries up until now.
I can’t describe how grateful I am, that I was a part of those ministries. I’ve grown and experienced so much, and I am a better person because of it.
For the past two years, it has been laid on my heart to close this chapter of my life, so that I can move on to the next exciting chapter.
God has told me to,”Go.” When He says go, I need to go. I’ve been praying and seeking His face more over the last two years, regarding this, and now is the time to move on.
To all of my friends at CPC, as much as I need to leave, I will miss you all. I won’t be far away, but I hope that we can all connect in other ways. If I lose friends because of this move, then so be it, but I hold you all dear, and close to my heart. I won’t be falling off of the face of the earth, but I just won’t be with you every Sunday. I pray that we will serve and collaborate, to give God the glory, one day soon. You have all had a huge impact on my life, and I am blessed because I know you. Don’t be a stranger! I am on Facebook and WhatsApp. (You can message me on fb for my number).
Be blessed, and always remain in Him, as He remains in you.
