Reroutes!

Reroutes!

Everything kept leading back to this!

If you want to know God's specific plan for your life, if you are born-again and you are seeking him with all of your heart he will tell you. Also, if you look back at your life, you may also be able to find out! When I was in middle school and high school I taught myself html, css, and I was attempting to learn Java but it was too complicated for me to learn. Additionally, I taught myself Photoshop,etc. I had a desire to for computers, graphics, software, etc. Youtube came out in 2005, and I created an account in 2006. In addition to creating a Youtube account, I created a blogger account. Years later, I signed up to serve at the teen ministry at the church I attended during my collegiate years. For some reason throughout my many years of backsliding to and from Christ, when I would slide back to Christ there was this desire to blog and teach about Christ. Back then, I didn't know about ministry, teaching, preaching, the gifts of the Spirit because I was not born again and the church that I attended didn't speak much about the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit. I'd start the blog and after two months I'd get distracted and forget about it, despite the thousands of hits I'd get. This happened about 4 times from 2006 to 2013 before I finally created a new blog in 2018 after being born-again, Spirit filled, and Jesus telling me his plan for my life.

What is the point that I am making?

God kept rerouting me back to his plan for my life although I did not know it back then. He prepped me from since elementary. For example, in middle school he had been preparing me by giving me an interest in software engineering, which later helped with creating www.ANewJourneyWithChristChurch.com. God also protected me from going routes that would permanently lead me astray. When I was in college, I had a successful online boutique, this was before all the gyals had online boutiques. Despite the hundreds of orders I had from around the WORLD, I closed that boutique down because of a void that I had. I had no idea that that void was Jesus Christ and his plan for my life. I chose a profession in Human Resources in which I worked for fortune 50,100, 500 companies around the United States. Working in Human Resources prepared me in so many ways to be a Shepherd. Below is a video that I recorded almost 8 years ago. I didn't know what God's plan for my life was. I didn't know 98% of what I know now, in regards to the word of God. However, I kept going back to blogging/youtube.



I know that if I would stayed the course in my 20's that I would have already reached the promise land. However, I am in my 30's and God still is able to teach me, prune me, and use me. Guess who else God was able to use, even in their 80's -120's?

  • Exodus 7:7 And Moses was eighty years old and Aaron eighty-three years old when they spoke to Pharaoh.
  • Genesis 21:5 Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.
