The Lord continues to open doors for me to speak about Him, and I am excited! This is part of what I’ve been Waiting on God Well for during these last couple of years.
I didn’t know how, or when, or really even what I wanted to say. I just knew that God was calling me to write and speak for His glory.
A few weeks ago, the Lord allowed me to once again run the service at Central Delaware Trinity Covenant in Upstate, NY. What an honor! It was great to visit my college friend and the folks at her church. It’s a blessing to get to do even simple things like choosing the bulletin for that Sunday’s service. It’s a privilege to get to lead the service, bring the sermon, and fellowship with the congregation afterward.
The following Saturday, the Lord allowed me to visit my friends at Woodcrest, the nursing home where my friend, Chaplain Jamary, runs a beautiful Bible study and service. My friends at Woodcrest were the first small group to study Waiting on God Well. They are the first small group to be reading Abounding Faith. It was a bit surreal to join them as they studied my book! I was encouraged to hear their thoughts about that week’s Bible character, Paul. It was also a blessing to get to worship with them and speak to them during the service time.
I’ve also gotten to speak to small group leaders from Every Nation Church NYC and got to run the Prayer Breakfast that my friends at Queens NY AGLOW held yesterday where Elder Barbara Chisholm of Perfecting Faith Church was the guest speaker.
I don’t take all of this lightly. Speaking about God and to His people is an honor! Now I’m starting to see why He’s been taking so much time and care preparing me for this season of my journey. I certainly didn’t get here overnight. And I still have a long way to go and lots to learn, but I’m delighted that the Lord would allow me to be His ambassador and witness through the written and spoken word.
I’ll be sure to share lessons I’m learning along the way. For now, I’d like to thank you again for being on this journey with me! God is moving! I’d like to remind you that God loves you more than you know! He loves you more than you can even imagine!
God wants to speak to you through His Word, the Bible. The Bible is God’s love letter to you and your instruction manual:
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
I hope you are taking time to soak in God’s presence. That’s where He’ll reveal His plans for you and give you the grace to make it through your day, week, and life!
I look forward to sharing more with you about my speaking journey!
If you’re having an event or gathering and would like me to come speak to your group, I’d be delighted to learn more about it! Please visit my speaking page for more information.
Blessings to you as you take steps forward in your faith journey!
