When Faith Don’t Make Sense!!

Sometimes faith doesn’t make sense!! Can I get at least one witness?! We’ve all heard people say, “When you can’t explain it, you know it was God that did it.” Well, let me testify. My assignment was to relocate my office off Galveston island to a location further mainland. I was then given a general vicinity and specific relocation guidelines as to what to look for etc. Fast forward approximately 3 years later, I thought I found the perfect location but to my dismay it wasn’t a good fit for the company’s vision or business model. So the hunt continued… Now, although the corporate team said ‘no’ to that location, the owner of the retail center said ‘yes’ to my proposition. I offered to find a piece of commercial property in Alvin and he agreed that if the location met his criteria he would build a commercial retail center and tailor a lease space to fit the parameters my company desired for their build-out. Now, I’ll submit to you in the back of my mind, I said to myself, “This sounds good but how in the heck am I going to pull this off.” To make a long story short, I prayed and God revealed to me a tract of land that wasn’t being advertised but for sale located on HWY 35 N Bypass in Alvin, Texas. There’s a lot more twists and turns to this story but to God be the glory (#TGBTG) and in His grace,
I successfully negotiated the commercial real estate land transaction and nearly 1 year later (2019), we successfully moved in to our new retail space and not to mention several other great small businesses: Red Oak Cafe, Sombreros, and recently La Costa Seafood. Here’s the kicker, on March 7th I was honored to speak at a marriage conference hosted by Ed & Kim Oratvez at the Red Oak Cafe. I never saw any of these awe inspiring events transpiring in full sight (read 2 Corinthians 5:7) but God did and I think this is why faith doesn’t make sense, it molds heroes. God is not asking us to see the full picture rather to trust that He is the Artist that painted picture! We are traveling in a season where God is using our circumstances to mold our faith and to turn our hearts back to Him! So in times such as these, don’t ever forget that God leads (Hebrews 11:8-13), God provides (Genesis 22:1-3), and God blesses (Genesis 22:5). We all have a story…..what’s yours?!
