I used to have a recurring dream about being barefoot in public. I never thought about it deeply; I just ignored it. I got married, had my first child, worked at a great job, but I felt like something was missing.
I read a book about understanding dreams and realised that the recurring dream was God trying to get my attention. He was trying to tell me something was missing.
In 2014, my aunt suggested I serve in church, which I’d never done before. I joined the media unit because I felt it wasn’t going to be too stressful. I thought I would only have to record announcements, LOL. At the time, I didn’t know this ‘unit’ was going to become a young adult church (The LifePointe Church), so I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
Last year, there was a series in The Elevation Church (LifePointe’s mother church) called, Kingdom Addict. The scripture reference was Matthew 6:33. I’d read the scripture a million times, but I had a new revelation at a service during the church series. At the end of the service, God told me to open up my Instagram page and to make it public, as it had always been private. I eventually did, though it was a struggle.
I had shared my childbirth story in church the month before, and it was posted on social media, the week God asked me to open up my page. I now understood partly, why God wanted me to open up my Instagram page. I received a gazillion messages from people telling me my story encouraged them.
One day in July, while sleeping, God woke me up and told me what my purpose was, literally. Just like that! Something I had been searching for in such a ‘mechanical’ way! Things that in my wildest dreams I couldn’t imagine, started happening. Doors began opening and different opportunities started appearing. This time last year, I wasn’t even close to where I am today.
Sometimes I feel so undeserving, but God is amazing. Life is really about seeking God’s Kingdom first and he will add everything else.
