Finding my purpose through Prayer and God

I JUST HAVE TO PRAISE GOD REAL QUICK!!

Have you ever heard the saying “God Works In Mysterious Ways?”! I am a true testament to this! Let me tell you a little bit about the obstacles I went through.

At the age of 6, I started cooking which then progressed into baking cakes to pay for my first quarter of college. Making over $1200 dollars in 3 weeks. By the age of 13, I was working with the youth in my community. Teaching Sunday school with toddlers, planning youth programs and events. When I reached 15, I started designing for my mothers clothing store “TrendSettas”. I self taught myself how to design her logo, business card, coupon vouchers, her website, and even designed the inside layout for her store front.

But all that came to a halt in 2012. I was 19 going on 20 wanting to “Find Myself”, I walked away from my 3 passions thinking it was more to offer in the world. I took on the street life living in “Worldly Sin”. Doing things I knew was not right, putting myself in vulnerable situations just to fit in.

As 2015 approached, I found myself pregnant with my now 3 year old daughter. When I say life hits you hard and fast when a child comes aboard is a understatement! I was nowhere near ready to be a mother. I was still trying to “Find Myself”. With the struggles of becoming a new mom, college drop out and no real steady income, I had no idea what to do next. One thing I did remember was what my Granny taught me.

Steadfast in the Lord and Pray. Pray when your hurting, pray when you do not have the answers, pray no matter what. Happy or Sad turn to God. I did exactly that spent many of nights crying and praying to God to show me the way.

Fast forward to January 2019, I decided to take a leap of faith and move out of state for the first time. In doing so I continued to pray. With God on my side I asked him to lead me and my baby in the way he wanted us to go. This was no easy task as I am still struggling not to turn back to what I know.

I’ve been blessed to say and show how prayer works.

As of February 1st I officially launched my business “Touched by Jazziee” and my official website. March 1st my daughter was accepted into a FREE full day preschool program. I was told when enrolling her, a full day spot would be a last resort and she would only get this spot if I was working full time and going to school. But like my mother and granny would say “God has the last word”. Within a month and a half of waiting my daughter was in! No questions asked about employment or schooling!

While that was a praise within itself. I continued to pray and now ask God for a job to work around my daughter’s school schedule and still be able to run my business. A week later March 12 and 13, I was offered not 1 but 2 jobs that hired me on the spot!

I am now starting as a preschool teacher assistant, while managing my Graphic and Web design business. While having the option to work in a clothing store I shop at frequently.

But I am not done yet!

The door has also opened for my child to receive an even better education at the same private school I will be teaching at. Tuition basically paid for in full and she will be on the same schedule with me while I work.

When I say life has made a full circle and lead me right back to “MY PURPOSE”!

I am no longer searching for what I should be doing, I am now taking steps to progress into the woman and mother God needs me to be. Working with children and designing is what I love!

He has lead me and I have now FOUND MY PURPOSE!

AMEN!
