Being in commercial real estate has taught me a lot. In my quiet time with my Heavenly Father, HE told me one day why HE placed me in this field. HE said, Devita, in your current bldg., what have you noticed. I said it’s under construction. He said what else, what are they doing? I said, they are removing things and bringing in new things. HE said, what is the one thing they aren’t touching? I said the foundation? HE replied, yes. Devita. If you notice-you never put new things together with old things. You have to remove the old first, and then put new things in. If not, you’ll end up with a mess. If you look up Foundation, it means an underlying basis or principle for something. Our foundation is our root. No matter what you do, you cannot change anything unless you get to the root of the problem. The bldg. that I am currently is, in an historic feature here in DC, my company bought it because it is a wonderful sturdy bldg., yes, it requires work but the FOUNDATION is stable. See, God has given us our foundation (our bodies) and every so often during the seasons, HE will instruct us on what to do, to build on our foundation. HE will use different life events to cultivate us, shape us, teach us, to be who HE desires for us to be. It requires purging/releasing, it’s ALL necessary in order fulfilling the purpose that we ALL have. When we purge/release its ridding ourselves of the things that are no longer necessary on this journey-It could be people, habits, mindset etc. Once we are fully purged, God will begin to pour new wine (see scripture above) into new bottles so that the lessons will be preserved. God has a plan for me, and HE definitely has one for YOU! This season, is to release/purge the old things that are hurting, hindering and exhausting you. HE is ready to give you more. Are you ready?
Heavenly Father, I am grateful for this day. I thank you for my foundation; help me Father-to build on it. Help me, to release/purge what is not longer necessary on this journey, so that I may put new wine into new bottles. I am ready Father; I can’t do this with you. Empty me of ME and fill me up with YOU. Bind up anything that isn’t of you, cast it out into the sea-never to be seen or heard from again. Help me to be truthful with myself in what I need to change, align me with more processed me and woman who will help me grow on this journey. In Jesus Name. Amen.
I posted this pic a while back and decided to “repost” I sent out a mass text to my family and some friends regarding my non-profit endeavor. I shared in great detail, how important this was\is to me and how it required A LOT of my time and effort to create develop this non-profit. I knew that once I started, I couldn’t stop. Certain areas of my life (school, some friends/family had to take a back seat) suffered lack while I’ve been building my brand. I had to learn that what I’m doing has taken precedence over everything else. If I want to make a difference, within my community with young people/parents, help parents raise awareness to DIPG all while incorporating the gift of cooking to charity organizations, I knew that sacrifices would need to be made. What has kept me going is this scripture Job 42:10-After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he needed before” It’s because of this scripture, that has made me realize that regardless of what I think I’ve lost, God will restore it all.
I expressed my plan to family and friends and I was given strong discernment to see who would be sitting in my front row genuinely and who was sitting in my front row that purchased nose bleed seats. Needless to say, I‘ve seen A LOT. Am I upset? NO! Am I going to stop or send our reminders? NO! See, from experience-I’ve received support from people whom I’ve known for such a short period of time, more than family and friends that I’ve known for ages- Who has encouraged, pushed, motivated, counseled and not only reviewed my paper work, but gave me advice based on their experience.
The purpose of this post isn’t to bash or bad mouth anyone, it is to show the next person who may be getting ready to step out on faith and make moves-that no matter what, if what your doing is for the Glory of God, trust me-HE will send you your supporters-it may not be in the form of a familiar face, but it will be support no less! #believer #newadventureSAMEjourney
