WARNING ⚠⚠⚠ THIS POST WILL BE SOMEWHAT LENGTHY DUE TO THE TIME THAT I TOOK OFF FROM MY BLOG!! BUT TRUST ME IT’LL BE WORTH YOUR TIME TO READ IT ⚠⚠⚠
Now since I had to share that disclaimer…. where was I? I have missed sharing my life stories with y’all and I am super excited to share this new season with you. So much has happened since my last post which was back in December 2016. Here’s the link If you want to go check it out to get a refresher https://sweetinspirationsbycandyce.com/2016/12/21/gifts-talents-fine-print/
If you can recall my series titled “kissing my 20’s goodbye” from 2 years ago, I brought you along on my journey to turning 30. That was such an emotionally, spiritually and growing time of my life. Here’s the link to follow my journey into 30. https://sweetinspirationsbycandyce.com/2016/01/03/kissing-my-20s-goodbye-2
As I said “HAPPY NEW YEAR” to my closest and dearest family and friends at midnight, my heart went into a state of shock. It finally hit me that I will embark upon a new journey in exactly 2 weeks from today to New York. All of emotions that you could possibly think of when you think of relocation hit me!! I was sad, excited, thrilled, nervous, afraid, insecure and full of peace all at the same time. Those are natural emotions to have when experiencing something like this. But the peace only comes if you have God along with you at all times.
I know that God is already there waiting on me because He has confirmed this time after time on so many levels and through so many people. That’s the thing about obedience, “Your YES GOD will have you out in the world looking like WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTT, how’s that going work?” Trust and believe that I am a living witness to what walking on the water can do for you if you only TRUST Him.
Day 01: As I reflected over my last 7 years after graduation up until now, every single experience that I have been through has equipped me for where I am going. I am reminded of
Romans 8:28 NLT And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
Even inspite of the many, many, many struggles that I’ve faced and disappointments, God’s word has never been a lie. His words are the only thing that has helped me to remain faithful to Him.
Here’s my summary of what you are to expect to read in this new series called: 3:2. I LOVE to make words and/or numbers have deeper meanings. So as I was spending some alone time with God, He dropped in my spirit to one: start blogging again and two: the significance of me turning 32. You pronounce 3:2 like a ratio 3 to 2. The 3 represents that I’ll be turning 32 in exactly 3 weeks and I’m moving to New York in 2 weeks. There are some other significant meanings to the numbers that I will post about in the future. I will be blogging my last weeks in Houston and my first week in New York. There is SO much in-store for me and I was just reminded of that today as I was encouraged and humbled as I read Deuteronomy 28:1-14. As I listened to it from my Bible app, I started to cry because I felt and heard God saying those words to me and assuring me that due to my obedience, He is going to bless me far greater than I could ever imagine.
Deuteronomy 28:1-2 NLT “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the world. You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God”.
The faithful and consistent things that God has created me to do that I faithfully did was seen by God and will be rewarded with things (not just tangible) that I have never experienced before. Whether it be a crazy amount of peace in a completely chaotic circumstance or financially, I will KNOW that it was nobody but God blessing me with exactly what I need at the perfect time.
So please just sit back and join me on my journey 3:2 and subscribe if you haven’t already.
UNTIL NEXT TIME MY LOVES!!!!!! ❤❤❤❤

OMG!! Thank you for this! Fear has always been my hold up. Also fear of accountability!
You are not alone girl!!! Accountability is truly something serious ain’t it.
Lately i’ve realized that i have become so busy by life’s daily demands that i forget to just dwell in His presence. This makes it harder to listen to His voice. I’ve slowly been trying to figure out the balance of all life’s demands and rest.
You are not the only one hun!! Take time to detach yourself from the distractions of your life. I’m still learning how to do that one and that it sometimes means detaching from the demands of our family members and friends. Love you girlie ❤
Fear of failure often delays me in my goal to be obedient to the assignments God has for me. The constant “what if’s “ can be paralyzing when I allow them to be. I can relate to all those feelings you’re experiencing, but God’s peace has sustained me. Walking on water takes courage, to me that symbolizes trusting God when things seem impossible in the natural realm. I’m learning that I will also have to be obedient by praying to God for help during these times when fear sets in.
AMEN girlie!! Obedience is key to it all and intentionally spending time with Him.
Before a month or so ago, it was fear and being afraid to say goodbye to what was safe and comfortable for me. For years I chose my fear over my faith. Failure seemed to always be the cloud over my head. But one day Jesus sent a specific person into my life who showed me what freedom looks like! So slowly I let go of what was common to me! The more I embraced freedom and saying goodbye over fear the more I understood where God was taking me. But more importantly I understood what it means to transition well and properly into your next and that purpose is a minute by minute process. Thanks Candyce! This was awesome and you’re incredible! Cheers to new beginnings!
No you’re incredible!!! Thank you for sharing Brittney and I thank God for you
