Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful.
1 Corinthians 1:27 NLT
I am often amazed how God is using me to reach out to people to share the Good News. He has anointed me in ways that are beyond my understanding. In the natural, I’m just a regular person, living a regular life, trying to obey God as best as I can. I’m not perfect, but I know that God sees me as righteous because of what Christ has done on the cross. He has given me a higher calling and that certifies me to do the work of Christ. I have always had a passion for helping people and God has given me the gift of writing to be able to do it. This job gives me great pleasure and through doing it, when people ask me “how do you do it?” I boast in the Lord and not in myself because in and of myself, I can’t do this.
I first started off writing poetry and I used it as therapy to help me get through the tough times in life, and then one day the Lord put it on my heart that my focus was about to change. There is grace for certain seasons in our lives and my grace for poetry is over (for now). It has served me well, but now I must focus on my new assignment. I remember the day clearly when the Lord told me to start writing spiritual pieces. I felt like Moses when God told him to go to Pharaoh and deliver the Israelites. I remember voicing, out loud, “Lord, I don’t do prose. Why are you picking me? I do poetry so you have to find someone else…” I lost the argument, obviously, and now here I am writing for Him. It’s very scary writing about such an important area because what I say or write can either do good or harm to someone, so I have to stay sensitive to the Holy Spirit and write what He tells me to write.
What you will read on this blog is not from me, for I know that I cannot write any spiritual material without it being revealed to me from God. I take this job seriously so I must constantly stay in tune and sensitive to what the Holy Spirit has to stay. Just know that what you read here on this blog is from above and I’m just the channel that is being used to deliver the information to you. These writings are not only are here to help you, but I oftentimes find myself being ministered to by them as well. It’s amazing the work God can do through us if we let Him.
Among sharing the Good News of Christ, I am also a high school English teacher, a poet, a mentor, and an upcoming spiritual author. I work for the Lord and I do it proudly. I do not boast in myself because none of this is possible without Him, His grace, His strength, and His anointing. The Lord gets all the credit, all the glory, all the honor, and all the praise.
I hope this blog will be a blessing to you in many different ways!
Your sister in Christ,
