Welcome

Welcome

Welcome to my new website/blog/shop! I am so thrilled with what the Lord is doing and for what He is going to do! He has commissioned us ALL to testify and preach the Good News that is Jesus to the world we live in, in every sphere of our influence. The Lord has anointed me to write of my experiences with the Lord to bring encouragement and edification to the body of Christ, specifically those who are dealing with traumatic experiences. It all started with Him asking me to write a book of the experience I had of Him bringing my baby back to life again and the journey that led me down over the next several years of learning more of who He is and who He made me to be in the midst of it all. The book is called Was It All For Nothing? Finding Purpose Through Trauma and you can find more about that here and purchase yourself a copy. My goal in this space is to stretch your faith to new heights, to grow in greater depths in your relationship with the Lord, clothe and adorn you with the Word of God, and above all— to teach you how to hear from God for yourself.

 

The Lord certainly works in mysterious ways, doesn’t He? Have you found yourself pondering the mysteries of God that He is unfolding for you in your own life? Do not feel bad if your answer to that question is ‘no.’ That is why I answered the call that God was nudging me toward to continue to write and start this blog. To help you see and realize those moments for your own life. I wrote a book about our story (not my story, because it is meaningless without God’s inner workings through each and every detail through it. So it is “our” story— If I am being really honest— it is all His, but He allows me to tell it). You can find more information about that here.

Back to my question if you have found yourself pondering the mysteries of God that He is unfolding… That is precisely how the last several years have been unfolding for me. Each day more exciting, new, and wondrous in my relationship with God the Father than the last. In the midst of a pandemic, a shut down, hardship, warfare, and derailment of our normal day to day lives— God was present and speaking the entire time.

“but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory; the wisdom which none of the rulers of this age has understood; for if they had understood it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; but just as it is written, “THINGS WHICH EYE HAS NOT SEEN AND EAR HAS NOT HEARD, AND which HAVE NOT ENTERD THE HEART OF MAN, ALL THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.” For to us God revealed them through the Sprit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God” 1 Corinthians 2:7 (NASB).

God cares about each and every aspect of your life. He is there through it all. Has this past year given rise to worry, anxiety, and fear for you? No matter where you lie on the spectrum here (from trembling fear of the unknown to bold radical faith in all things), God sees you and your needs, desires, worries, fears, ailments. He wants to set you free and experience freedom in Him and Him alone.

“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, by [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of a sound judgement and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]” (2 Tim 1:7 AMP).

Thank you for being here. You are valued, you are loved, and you belong here. I would like to pray over you right now:

Father God, in the name of Jesus, I thank you for your sons and daughters reading this. I pray that you will make yourself known to them in new ways today. That they would know without a shadow of a doubt that you are near and that you are just as active today as you were in the stories in the Bible. I thank you, Father, for all that You have given to us— Your blessings know no bounds. Thank you for allowing me to create this blog with You at the center for the sake of Your children to know you in greater ways. Let Yourself be known to them in the ways You have made Yourself known to me. I love you Lord. You are the MOST loving, kind, gracious, and merciful and it is an absolute honor to serve and praise Your name. In the name of Yeshua, your precious son Jesus, Amen and amen.
