I changed the title of this post about 3 times; I may change it again before I hit “publish”. (I did.) This weekend I had an AMAZING time with my girls! We laughed, we joked, we danced, we met up with old friends, we met some new friends, we hung out with my family, and my linesister and I almost got lost in the street game (that’s a post for another day). All in all, I am so glad I went away on this mini-vacay! I almost didn’t want to come back…almost.
Before I left DC, I heard a voice speak something into my existence-something I hadn’t thought about in awhile. But, as we are proned to do at times, I didn’t pay it any attention. When we were in NC this weekend, the same voice spoke this same thing into my existence again. Not necessarily louder, but definitely with more force. And with so much force that I started paying attention. When we are on the right track and start doing the right thing, God will come to us. And we must listen and pray and talk to Him to ensure first that we are doing the right thing AND doing it the right way.
Yes, I know, short post, but I had to get this off my chest-when God speaks to us, it would behoove us to listen. Sometimes we may have to leave our comfort zone in order to receive our blessings. And when He speaks to us, we cannot ignore him. That’s when His voice gets a little louder, His hints not so subtle. But why would we want to shoot ourselves in the foot and not receive blessings that were made specifically for us? Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city.
P.S. Yes, I know I’m a slacker. It’s the 19th day of Black History Month, and I have yet to highlight an entrepreneur. The highlights are coming-just pray for me. 🙂 Also, scratch what I said in an earlier post about doing things (i.e. volunteering and joining organizations) to potentially have my mate meet me. (This comes from putting the right thing in your spirit and opening yourself up to hear the right things.) Like Ruth, if I’m focusing on bettering myself and living my life, all of that other stuff will come.
