Its okay to Ask God for confirmation, look to His Word, His Wisdom (Godly people), His way, His Principals, His People, His Peace, His Character, His Counsel …proverbs tells us that
If this helps, The Word says there are Three questions you can ask yourself if God has spoke to you; Does it line up with the Bible, the entire Bible, Seek Godly counsel, remember never contradicts itself, Do I have peace, always takes faith but there will never be fear
i. Colossians 3:16

Colossians 3:16-17 NIV
So many lessons throughout the new testament from Paul; his love for Christ, his teachings, writting of course, total comment through the hardest of times, his hunger for knowledge and teaching the pure message (for us should translate to the pure Word). 2 Corinthians 11 and the passage below directly warn against false prophets, false messaging, and being easily persuaded off tract. WOW. All the distractions we have today, HOLD your Focus on the Lord Jesus Christ.
Think about this very simple truth; The Secret of Every Success Is Total Focus. Be ruthless with distractions. You cannot meditate on your past and your future at the same time. So, focus on your desired future.
"Stay Focused Watch Out For The Hocus Pocus!"
"Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended, but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus"

This was a very challenging year for me, I know these challenges are not testing from God; they are chastening. It is our endurance measurement. When we have these times of healing, of pressurized growth, emotionally, intellectually, and most importantly spiritually. These times are GIFTS - believe me I did not feel it at the time - the world would never have said yes Sam this is so exciting and you should jump up for joy. WOW.
Nope none of that - I am thankful so thankful - and it is true. All such a blessing. What happened that year.
My business totally failed, money stolen, lost offices, law suits, just about every unbelievable - I cant believe that would even happen thing happened. Then my husband of 3 months shy of 30 years, granted our marriage was far from good at that point, nonetheless no one wants to hear, "It is simple, I don't love you, don't think I ever did, In fact I hate you and oh yeah I have been in another relationship now for a while. This is over." Yes, he walked out. I was relieved but in shock and hurt from the betrayal. The same day my Mother was diagnosed terminal - she told me the day after my birthday which was about 2 weeks after that. Then I discovered stolen money, several more plots in a few of my offices, and I said, "Okay Lord, I give you my business, my career, my life, my family, my love life, my relationships... I know I have been holding on to this steering wheel. Please, I hear you now, please let me get in the passenger seat." My Mother lost her ability to communicate the last 3 months with us, that was very challenging. Then she passed, 8 days later I found out my Father had been cheating and already in a new relationship. He stopped talking to any of us - suddenly my entire family was dissipated. Holidays all my children were off at the other side of the family, their spouses, where ever - but I was totally ALONE. Well I also had this divorce thing going, had a beautiful relationship in fact I think I fell in Love for the first time ever. Lost that Love just when all the doors opened for us to really be in a relationship, i.e. divorce done, suit done, finances and all properties done divided and delivered. Just Done. and Poof all of a sudden he was gone to. I was mad, of course, but looking back it is just what I needed. I didn't need a rebound, even though he seemed my life long dream man and Mighty Man of God. I really didn't need to transfer my needs from one man, or my business, to another man... I needed to transfer those needs to Him. God Knew Best and today - I AM PERFECT in every way - what the Lord has showed me my words are simply - WOW and WOW Thank You Lord!!
Yes, I took the wheel back a few times. I was up and down emotionally, obedient some days, and others wow I needed forgiveness for. But in the WORD maybe just a few days short of every day and through Grace we are saved, not through acts. However, our acts, our humility, our efforts, what we let go of, how we grow into obedience... that is what God Rewards! Thank You Lord for that year, for all the "desert" years before it, for the very difficult year following. Thank You Lord, and to all reading, Yes - to every mess mentioned there is an amazing Praise. Each one a miracle in many respects, and a couple just plain supernatural act of God. Totally Amazing!!! Thank You for Delivering me into Your Promise Land and - AND - the entire time holding my Hand. WOW and WOW Thank You Lord!!
TYL PTL TGBTG!!! Hallelujah !!!!!
Thank You, Thank You Lord, Hallowed be Thy Name and I Love You,
