The Authenticity of the Writer

faith
Why I write I enjoy writing immensely. If I could just write and that was all, there would be no issue. Regrettably, that is not the case. Being obedient to the call that the Lord has placed on me is exciting and uncomfortable at the same time. Granted, I have been speaking my mind, and posting scriptures for years on my personal platform. However, using a professional platform to showcase my writing leaves me vulnerable and open in a way that I didn't feel before. Even so, this is what has been asked of me. I know that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. This is not in question. At the same time, I am being pulled to the front for all to see. As…

The enemy invaded my thoughts

trust god, Uncategorized
I have a word to share about the enemy that comes each time God is elevating you. He whispers words to you that go against what you know to be true and also what you know God said. Today, I spoke at a service and I've never been to a "Testimony Service" so it was interesting. I've been in service where people have testified but this entire service was focused on testimonies and praise and worship, which was awesome. My background is Jehovahs Witness so I'm still not that familiar with church protocol. I'm still learning. I went first. I have such a vast testimony that I had to condense it as much as I could. I think I did ok, but I was questioning it too, because I was…

"You want me to do what, God?"

"You want me to do what, God?"

faith, trust god
How many of you have received a word from the Lord that gave you pause? That made you say, "You want me to do what, God?" I have. I have received a few of those words, that I didn't quite understand, yet most times, I obeyed. The times that I didn't obey, I paid the price. We do suffer many things, not from the enemy or the Lord, but by our own decisions. You do know that, right? Some things are just us. We need to get out of our own way. The Lord says that obedience is better than sacrifice. (1 Samuel  15:22) Also, understand these 3 things. (I cited these 3 from jolly notes.com, but agree with them 100%) #1 God is still God – God is still…

Where we are weak…

faith, Uncategorized
God is strong.  The Lord says that where we are weak, He is strong. ​​ “Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬  “So be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the Lord!” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭31:24‬ ‭NLT‬‬ When do you actually find out how strong you are? When do you find out what you're made of? How much can you endure?  It's through trials and tribulations that we all face in the world.  I was sitting outside this morning enjoying my coffee and reflecting on this season of my life.  I was reflecting on the…

You can't go and it's ok

faith, Uncategorized
There will come a point in your life where God will call you to do something. Before He actually sends you out, He will equip you. During that time, you can't go everywhere or be around everyone. It is sometimes a lonely place. This period of time is like a wilderness of a sort, or a desert. It's you and the Lord. I am in that period right now. The Lord spoke and gave me a word regarding watching my associations, where I go to socialize and to disconnect. He wanted me to turn the Tv and Social media off. He was training me to be in His presence. I do that more and more and it's becoming normal. It's not easy initially. He has called me to pray, study and…
