Good Evening my brothers and sisters in Christ. We serve a faithful God who keeps his promises. On 2-10-2013, I was released by God from my job. I have enrolled in a Seminary to receive BA in Counseling by 2016. Since my period of waiting, I experienced many events. God spoke to me in 2007 to leave my job of 23 years and he brought me through that journey. But this journey is truly different. I was so use to having my own money, eating the foods I needed, paying my bills and providing other needs as well as sow into the lives of God's people. The drought I experienced was new, not having the food you like, eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, grits no eggs, very little gas in the car, falling behind on the bills and no unemployment. God allowed the well to dry up. Now when you are in a place where God has instructed you to be in the wilderness, your family and friends do not always understand. It is OK because you must remain faithful to God while you are waiting. I am telling you this for a reason. In 2010 God spoke to me to put together a Women's Conference, but my job traveled a lot, I worked a lot of long hours and it became a distraction. About two months ago God placed on my heart again to have the conference. I was speaking to another minister and she has agreed to work together for a 2014 Women's Conference. My point to all of this, if I am to minister to the broken, destitute, hungry, lost and bound women; I have to understand where they have been. Now I can witness by knowing what it is like to not have food in the home, loss of job, no unemployment, no resources, bills falling behind and wondering where is God to the women. We has disciples are very effective for the Kingdom of God by our testimony. This journey has made me so much stronger and I know God has an awesome plan once I reached the other side of the lake. The storm was raging, angry and full of spiritual warfare, but my God shall supply all of my NEEDS.. Be encouraged today. God bless you.
