Within days apart I was led to share my “faith story” twice of how I followed my heart and moved to Maui. One was with a married couple and the other was with a single mom with 3 children. Both were divinely set-up by the Universe to inspire and encourage them to step out in faith and follow their dreams.
I met Bob and Kim while walking the path as they were leaving the Marriott to go for their walk. They asked, “Do you live here, and is it expensive?” I answered, “Yes, it is expensive but you learn where to buy food and shop for what you need.” They were vacationing from Colorado and their dream was to buy a condo while they were here.
The conversation flowed and went “deep” fast. We shared the “same language” of faith and trust in God. We had a lot in common and Bob shared he was writing an inspirational book. I shared my book, Simply a Woman of Faith, and how I followed my heart and moved to Maui 10 years ago.
When we parted it felt like we had known each other for a long time and exchanged numbers and emails. I told them I would pray for them and knew if it was God’s will, they would find the perfect condo to buy. I received a text from them 2 days after we met that they had found a condo and made an offer. God moves fast when you are willing to face your fears, step out in faith and trust your heart.
I met Kristie a few days after meeting the couple. I was again walking on the path and had stopped to watch the whales breaching in the ocean. I turned to the young woman next to me and said, “Some people stop to smell the roses, we stop to watch the whales.” She smiled and said, “I stop to do both.” I said, “Me too.”
That was the beginning of another divine set-up by the Universe. Kristie, a single mom, shared “It is my dream for my children and me to move to Maui. When I was a little girl playing with my Barbies, I dreamed about moving to Hawaii. It feels like this is the right time for us to move here. I have faith in God and only want God’s will.”
I was happy to share my story of faith and to encourage her to follow her heart and step out in faith. She was also a woman of faith and had many stories of how God provided for her. I shared how I lived my life with the concept of open and closed doors and it has never failed me. When I don’t know if I’m making the right decision, I ask God to open or close the door. I said, “I will pray for you and I would like to gift you with my book, Simply a Woman of Faith. I think it will help you right now move forward.” I gave her my number and we planned on meeting the next day for me to give her my book.
Kristie contacted me the next day and said, “I found the perfect condo for my children and me. I’m making an offer and hope it will be accepted. There are many obstacles to overcome if it is going to happen. We have 2 small non-shedding dogs and the condo doesn’t allow dogs (unless there was a medical reason and there was). I need a down payment of 20% and I only have 3%.
Here is the text I received from her a couple of days later. “They accepted my offer and we have a closing date of May 1. I continue to trust the money will come in for the down payment. My heart is flooding with gratitude and excitement. I am surrendering and putting it in God’s hands with great anticipation of the greatness He is bringing to me and my kids.”
Pat, you have strengthened my faith and brought about my awareness of worthiness. I think you are my guardian angel as you help me radiate light and love. Thank you for demonstrating your strong faith. I am loving your book! It is helpful to write my thoughts at the end of the chapters. It is bringing clarity and awareness and providing me with a deepened faith.
It is truly my joy to share my faith and inspire others to follow their dreams. I know that with God all things are possible. Thank you, Spirit for aligning the stars and bringing us together at the perfect and right time.
