There's simply no denying it - God is absolutely amazing! The sheer magnitude of His love and grace is enough to inspire all of us. It's truly awe-inspiring to consider all the incredible things He's done for us - from creating the world to providing limitless opportunities for growth and fulfillment. In short, there's no limit to what God can do - and that's just one of the many reasons He deserves our unwavering love and devotion. Have you ever taken a moment to reflect on your life? To see all the things that the Lord has brought you through. The things you thought you would never get past are now a part of the past.
It could be anything from becoming a single parent to marveling at the journey it took your children to grow from childhood to adulthood. Maybe your dream was to finish school, and now you have a diploma or college degree. You could have possibly wanted to start your own business, but you felt it would never get off the ground, but now you've started. I'm unsure of what you want to accomplish, but I can tell you that God is with you. He's even with you when his desires for you aren't even on your radar. I can attest to this. I never dreamed of being an author. I never thought about being a blogger. I had thought about owning my own business. I tried a few things, but it was fleeting because I didn't know what skills or services to offer. But just because I didn't know doesn't mean God didn't know.
Now, I'm here. I have two Christian devotionals that I love. Every Tuesday, I post a blog about my journey with Christ, and my summit starts on January 15th which aims to help Christians develop a stronger faith. Who knew? I didn't. Looking back and taking inventory, there were some telltale signs. I love to read. I love digging for the truth. I love breaking things down and doing analysis. I had received a prophecy on being an evangelist, but my thought was we're all called to evangelize. My friends still tease me because I have not fully embraced this role. Teaching is another area I haven't totally accepted, but it's all coming to fruition. God does what God does, and I am here to do His will. Although I haven't embraced the labeling, I continue to walk in it. He is absolutely amazing!
God loves us. “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” 1 John 4:9-10 KJV
Allow God's will to be your desires. “Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” Psalm 37:4 KJV
Allow God to lead you. "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV
By speaking these things…over time, I’ve been learning how to incorporate Christ into every area of my life.
Below are two books that God has inspired me to write. "The Flip Side" and "Blinded By Sight: The Heart Matters" both available now.
So… what’s this book about?
“The Flip Side” depicts the possible feelings and emotions of lesser-known Biblical characters as they navigated their lives in the shadows of the more popular characters in the Bible. While the Bible gives us snippets of their stories, we are usually left in the dark about their true motives, desires, and thoughts concerning the situations they are in. However, one certainty is that despite how little we know about these characters, they were often the catalysts to pivotal moments in the main characters’ lives.
So… what’s this book about?
Join me on a journey of self-discovery. “Blinded by Sight - The Heart Matters” is a compilation of short biblical devotions. These stories are not conclusive. They are depictions of how God is revealing my heart to me.
My prayer is, Lord, make it real for me, show me your heart, show me my heart, and give me the wisdom to change what hinders my relationship with you. I am learning that my perception is my biggest obstacle it affects my mind, what I think, and how I process my experiences. What I have experienced in my mind is expressed through my feelings and these experiences dictate my choices either consciously or subconsciously.
This devotional will allow you to explore and evaluate your past and present situations that have hindered you from seeing the heart of the matter. Simply put, look at the heart – it does matter. Your future depends on it!
I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalms 34:4
