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.

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…

Faith it and you will make it

faith, Uncategorized
Have you ever heard the term, "Fake it until you make it?" Most people have. Do you know what it means? It means to imitate confidence and competence with an optimistic mindset.  You do this until it comes to pass.  The "faking it" part is acting in a way as if it was already true. The "making it" part is the hopeful realization that it will come to pass. You have to believe in yourself even to fake it. You have to be confident enough to pull it off. You must act the part. Faith it and you will make it! This is the meaning of Faith: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1 Having faith means to hope and…
