Hi! And welcome to my new blog. Up front, I just want anyone who is reading this to know that I have NO IDEA what I’m doing!! I kept asking Holy Spirit what I should do as a means to make some money and provide for me and my kiddos, and He just kept telling me over and over again to write. So, I asked Him what I was supposed to write and He said, “Your testimony.” I’m working on that part. Finding a starting point is hard! I’m only 33 and at first glance, I look at my life and it seems like there isn’t so much to tell considering I’ve only been on this Earth for a little over three decades. But when I remember what all has happened in my life, I can’t believe that I’ve been through so much…….
But I digress. Continuing on with my conversation with Holy Spirit…..So after He told me to write, I prayed over what avenue of writing I should pursue.”I could write I book”, I told Him.
He said, “You’ve already got a book started.”
“Okay. I could just write a paper for myself to keep as a memento of my life.”
“Sure, but then you’d be the only one who would get to see it. Think bigger.”
“Bigger? Um, why?”
And in my mind I head the worship song by Jeremy Camp Overcome:
“We will overcome, every one over come
by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony”
Over and over I heard this song. I would wake up with it in my mind. I would find myself humming it at random moments. As I write this, my heart aches with it resounding inside of me. And I knew. Holy Spirit once again spoke to me.
“Your testimony is going to change people. It’s going to help them overcome their circumstances and give them hope. I’m going to use your testimony to bring people to Me.”
So, here I am. I am here, writing this blog, with no idea in which direction it’s going to go, or how God will use it, but I’m willing. I’m willing to share my story, my testimony of His goodness, His faithfulness, His amazing grace in the midst of my sin, my mess ups, my failings and flaws.
I can’t wait to share the adventure with you all and to see God move in our lives.
