SANKOFA~I CAME BACK TO GET IT!!

No matter how many times my family said come home the answer was always no. I choose to activate my faith and trust God with everything I had in me. If it was his will then we would get through what we were going through. Times were hard but God was present. I stood on his word. When the Holy Spirit speaks it’s very clear. I clearly heard ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! It’s time to go home. Now listen y’all!!!!! I can only be me so I’m going to be VERY TRANSPARENT. My first reaction was WHEEETTTTTT?!?!?!?!?!! Go home?????? BUT WHY????????? What will I do there??? God had moved mountains for me in Georgia. Georgia was my peace. Things were not picture perfect but my joy and peace was in tact. Our ministry was birthed in Georgia, He sent many divine connections, and we had more work to do! Very much like Job, I had questions Job 10:1. God already knew what I felt and what was in my heart. He answered my question. Ask and you shall receive right? I worked for Jesus LLC and I can work for the kingdom ANYWHERE!! This I knew for sure. I knew if he was sending me home there was a reason. About a week before I was getting on the road I met with a good friend. I began to tell her that I was moving back home and that I knew God had something for me there. She began speaking to me about SANKOFA. Sankofa is a term from our ancestors from Ghana, West Africa and it means to go back and reclaim your past so that you can move forward, so we know why and how we came to be who we are today. IT BLEW MY MIND!!!! It blew my mind because I had been longing to sit at my Grandma’s feet and talk. I had been longing to go sit with my village and reminisce. I had been longing to sit and listen to my Grandad’s sermons. I never had enough time to do all this when I’d visit. It was starting to make sense. There is something God ordained me for and going back home will allow him to reveal and teach me. I knew I had to get my mind right so I took a week to prepare my mind to move back home. During this week I reflected on all God had brought me through. I reflected on the love of my family. I reflected on what I was gaining by going home. I began to thank God in advance. I didn’t have a clue what was in store for me but I knew this was a part of his plan. He had been preparing me for this. A NEW BEGINNING! God had taught me lessons through prayer, obedience, and faith. It was now time to surrender 100% to HIS WILL AND HIS WAY. There is never a dull day with God on your side. I’M HOME AND IM READY TO GET WHAT I CAME FOR🙌🏽❤️
