However, I want you to know that it has only been since the beginning of this year that my writing ministry has taken off.
I used to write publicly for my local newspaper (faith articles) for 8 years. I had a very active ministry and was a licensed minister.
After 17years of a very unhealthy toxic marriage I went through a horrible divorce.
I gave up everything, including my ministries. I laid it all at Jesus feet. I was lied about, shunned, and condemned and ran into a cave by Jezebel and her cronies. I was completely stripped and devastated.
But Jesus never left me.
I have been in hiding and healing for the last 5 years. I have not served in any ministry nor have I become a member of any church. I have allowed the Holy Spirit to minister to me. I have been in a deep season of consecration fasting and prayer. It hasn’t all been spiritual though.
I was stubborn and God had and still has a lot of work to do in me. Years of ridicule, abuse, control and manipulation do not go away overnight.
Jesus has been such a gentleman and gently pulling one layer away at a time. I am sharing this with you because I want you to know that we all have our seasons that we must go through.
Some longer than others.
Over the last 2 years I became a Personal Trainer and opened my own fitness studio. It was a blessed business where I had to turn clients away I was so busy. But secretly I missed writing. God asked me to lay it down. So I did at the end of last year.
Since the beginning of March I have had more happen to me, through me and for me in ministry than I can even wrap my head around.
God is opening doors that I could never open on my own. He is making room for my gifts of writing and stretching me through making videos and teaching through webinars.
Friends, it is all happening so fast and I am in awe of what God is doing.
My prophetic voice has opened like never before.
God is RESTORING everything I lost and gave up. He is blessing me and I am so excited for this time.
I used to look at others being blessed and used by God and wonder, “when is my time Lord?”
Well, I can tell you the time is now. Many of you have experienced the same hardships, the same cave, the same wilderness time.
I am here to tell you that we are in a season of RESTORATION God is restoring.
He is paying you back. You will get back double for your trouble in less time. You are not going to have to work hard for these blessings. You won’t have to go looking for opportunities, they will come looking for you. Your time is now, your healing is now, your blessings are now, your opportunities are now!! We are in a season of NOW.
A season of suddenlies.
Get ready for the downpour.
God isn’t saying look at what I am GOING to do for you. No, He is saying, “look at what I HAVE done for you.”
You are going to be completely undone this year with Gods goodness. It will overtake you and you will be on your face in awe of His love for you.
Get ready NOW!
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. ~ Romans 8:28 NKJV
