Your Masterpiece 

Good Morning,
I am so grateful that I’ve made it here.  
I am so happy that I am willing to share my imperfections with you. People often judge people based on how they look, the character that’s portrayed, or the story we form based on our personal perception of them. 

Many of us are not comfortable with acknowledging our truths or hidden secrets. Some of us go to sleep every night with some form of struggle. Some of us are dealing with baggage and issues that stem from our past like: addictions, mommy/daddy problems, mental health/suicidal concerns, poverty mentalities, physical ailments, molestation, lack of self-esteem, anger, spiritual warfare, generational bondage, adulterous behaviors, bitterness, jealousy, worthlessness…..the list goes on and on.  
I want YOU to know. It will be okay. Do not let your HISTORY dictate your future STORY.   
As I invite you into another dimension of my life, I hope that my story will encourage or inspire you or at least change your perspective on sharing your story.    
For years, people would say “Lereca you are so beautiful. Lereca you have such a beautiful smile!” While I am so glad I am blessed with this smile, my smile was also something that I could project to hide my truths. Behind the smile, I was broken and I was a mess.  

My story is a story of struggle and strength, tests and testimony, fear and faith, problems and promise, and most importantly lust and HIS LOVE.

This is my public declaration of saying….BUT GOD! I am allowing him to turn my broken pieces into masterpieces. Make each day your masterpiece.

God’s been asking me to come and be in His presence a lot lately.  

I’ve seen the word “come” so frequently in scripture, songs, my devotional and in my notes so much lately that I just can’t ignore it. 

I’m reminded how much God wants to have an intimate relationship with us. He calls us by name! 

This song “Come Like The Wind” grabs me because it talks about how much WE want the Lord to COME TO US. 
See Lyrics below:


Anyway you want to show up God!  
Just come on! 

Can I reassure you that God always makes a way to connect with us, to show up.  

He comes in whatever way we need Him because He knows what we need. 

He knows our deepest desires.  

He created us with our heart’s deepest longing to be in a intimate relationship with Him. 

Once we realize this and declare it, there is such a peace and so much freedom because we can always seek Him knowing He will never leave us nor forsake us. 

Let this song remind you of your true desire for Him and make it your declaration that whatever way He reveals Himself to you that you will take it!
