It's amazing how God allows you to be at the right place, at the right time!
Recently I was checking out music
(as I always am) and I ran across and artist by the name of Carmen Rodgers
. I liked what I heard so I decided to check out some more of her music
. In the midst of checking out her music
I ran across a video by Carmen Rodgers
called It's Me.
Ironically, when this song started playing, I new the hook already! (How did I already know this song? Til this day, it still boggles my mind)....anyway, once I realized that I knew the song I decided to try to find out how I knew this Carmen Rodgers
girl. Unfortunately I still wasn't sure. Then I found out that she was performing in Atlanta
.....once again, how ironic that I would find out about her show, right after finding her music.
Since I definitely believe in a higher power, I was convinced that none of these things were by coincidence.
I decided to reach out to Carmen's booking agent about an interview on When We Speak
. Her booking and I and I waited for confirmation of the date.
By the time Friday came, I was still hopeful but I started to tell myself, "Jermaine, be patient and if now is the time, it will happen". (Keep in mind I started getting worried because it was Friday and we had talked about interviewing the next Monday, and since that was my birthday weekend, I knew I would not be readily available to my emails).
I had planned a few things on my birthday weekend but I had one event that I still wanted to attend (a listening party for Atlanta artist Rahbi
). I wasn't sure if I would be able to attend but luckily I made it...... Remember how I said at the being that "It's amazing how God allows you to be at the right place, at the right time!"? Well, I get to the event and guess who I run into? Yep! You guessed it......CARMEN RODGERS
! So when she walked past me, I had to take the opportunity to introduce myself............and guess what? We interviewed
the day after my birthday.....what a great birthday gift!!!
I wanted to tell the full story about how I felt to encourage
you today! Nothing ever happens by chance! Each breathing moment of our lives, we have to remember that God will present the door of opportunity
. We have to be bold enough to knock when the door is presented! I hope this story encourages you and gives you hope to keep focus of your vision and destiny!
Just Remember: Nothing happens by chance......you are not reading this by chance! It was meant specifically for you...TODAY!!!
