Downpour of an Unexpected Blessing

It seemed like this day---MOVING DAY----took forever to come. I had been planning to move for the last year. I was in serious need of a change. An escape. It was just two months ago when I decided where I wanted to move. Once I found my spot I shifted into overdrive.


For the last few weeks I have been purging, packing, and picking out new things for my new place. You’d think that I had never moved before. Funny thing is that my move is an apartment lease. Yet, moving into my first purchased home almost 15 years ago was not this exciting.


This move is different. There’s definitely a spiritual shift happening in front of my eyes and I can feel it, too. Over the last year, I have had five prophesies from three different people. All were similar, but consistent. More importantly….confirmation of what has already been revealing in my Spirit.


It’s a new season. Indeed, my season.


Soooo, you can understand my disappointment and somber mood when I woke up to rain in the forecast. It’s not supposed to rain, I kept telling myself knowing God was listening.


Like, where did this rain come from????


It’s been sunny all week!!!!


How could it rain?!?!?!


It’s been sunny all week!!!!


Why would it rain?!?!?!


It’s been sunny all week!!!!


Aside from my stuff getting wet…….the rain slows everything down and makes the atmosphere gloomy. Shucks! This is not how I envisioned my day.


When I relocated here to Cary, North Carolina four years ago it was a beautiful, bright and sunny day. I remember waking up in the wee hours, packing up what I could in my car, and hitting I-95 south. I cried the entire drive---not because I was sad, but because I was leaving what had been a few years of sadness. It was actually bittersweet. In fact, I insisted that I drive down alone and allow my loved ones to come the following week. I wanted to release the old and embrace my new life, while listening intently to God’s instructions.


About 10 years prior to my move to North Carolina, I had a dream that my family lived in the Raleigh area, and that all of us were prospering. We knew NO ONE here, so I knew that the dream was prophetic.


A year after I had that dream my baby sister relocated here to attend #JohnsonCSmithUniversity. Then, my oldest sister’s employer relocated her to this area. A couple of years after that my middle sister decided to come here to pursue her education at #MeredithCollege. Last year, my niece got accepted into #ChowanUniversity and is loving #NCLiving, and my nephew has decided to rebuild his life here, too. So, yes, that prophetic dream is manifesting.

The move for me from Maryland to North Carolina was transition into my destined place. But, just like when Joshua took the children of Israel into the Promised Land, they were faced with so many challenges as they tried to seize the land God had promised.


For the last few years here, I have faced so many challenges and changes…..yet, still prospering. And, definitely growing. My relocation here was a transition, indeed.


However, this new move is elevation.


Getting my big day started, after looking at the weather forecast (and after praying) I took a quick glide through social media. Just wanted to peek in to see what everybody was up to (because that’s what I do---don’t judge me).


To my surprise, I came across a video from Marcus Rogers that totally blessed my soul. It was a video of him walking in the rain, praising God and rejoicing. Immediately, I got it!! I understood the rain!!!


As Marcus explained, when it rains SUDDENLY it’s a message from God of an unexpected blessing. So, I received it. I embraced the rain. Because I realized that my new home is nothing short of a blessing from God.



“Be glad, O children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given the early rain for your vindication; he has poured down for you abundant rain, the early and the latter rain, as before.” --Joel 2:23
