I don’t know about you, but when things don’t go as I plan, I normally want to change the plan (which is a NATURAL thing to do??). However, when we’re in the midst of a SPIRITUAL Journey, the rules change! The Lord will ask us to do things that are a tad uncomfortable (like WAITING until He tells us to take the next step!). He takes us out of the realm of reasoning and into the spiritual realm of FAITH. Contrary to popular belief, when we operate in faith, it does not mean that there’s the absence of doubt. I’m now two months into this new journey and I’m struggling!
And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak, … II Corinthians 4:13 NKJV
So, I ENCOURAGED myself with this Facebook Inspiration post…
EVERY DAY….. Your journey will only get Better!!
… knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you. II Corinthians 4:14 NKJV
Resurrection power come forth, as we speak to all the lifeless things in our lives!
Then, as the month draws to a close, this Facebook memory pops up!!!
NEXT JOURNAL ENTRIES (April, 2018)
This project was to organize an entire home, from garage & family room to the upstairs bedrooms. I met my client at a vending event that I attended to share info about ShelfGenie and Order Your Steps. She arrived just when the event was beginning to shut down. She passed by our booth and she said that she really needed to get her home organized. However, she simply took the info and said that she would call me. Arline, ShelfGenie franchise owner, said “Did you get her phone number?” Please understand that God always Orders Your Steps…. I kinda chased her down and got her phone number. AMAZING!! A few weeks later, I did her FREE in-home assessment and the rest is history! 😀
She’s been truly AWESOME! She’s been very patient with me and has worked diligently throughout the entire organizing process. However, at times, it was simply overwhelming for her, but she stuck with it. Although, there were times that she just couldn’t get her homework done, she was always ready to work when I showed up.
Once motivated, she began doing other improvements to her home, i.e. painting, deck refinishing and replacing patio doors… I mean BIG stuff. She is living proof that once you start to establish more organization in your home, it promotes an Order to your life were also times that we had an opportunity to discuss her work life…It is all about Order!!
HOORAY! We have finished the bulk of our project, and now we will need to do some fine tuning to a few areas of her home. We will establish a maintenance program that will enable her to continue what we have started. Our official project wrap-up was last Friday. It felt like we were closing a major chapter of her life, which I guess we have! I appreciate how the Lord has allowed me to minister to her during this last few months. Moving forward, I will check in with her by phone or preferrably a pop-up visit every other week or so. In addition, we will have a two-hour organizing session once a month and then we’ll just see what happening from here! 😀
Here are a few rooms that we did… Take a Look!!
