I was given an invitaiton to find love. I was given an inviation to become a first time home buyer. Most importantly I was given an invitaiton to seek God more and to know Him even more. To Explore and Discover unknown territory. Unknown territory in the regards to a love relationship, purchasing a home and knowing a great big God.
Let go of fear. Let go of fear of the unknown and fear of the future. Fear of being hurt. Let go of the pain from my child hood from gowing up as an Adult Child of Divorce. I had to learn to let go of the effects of my parent divorce and allow God to heal my heart.
God has a plan for my life. There is a great big world out there and I needed to explore and discover all that God has for me. The territory of my heart that I kept under lock and key letting no man set foot on.
