Reflections on Speaking Up

microphone-1261793_960_720

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!

I’d like to take a moment this week and thank my readers and online community! Thank you for taking this journey with me! I appreciate your support and encouragement!

Your “likes,” comments, shares, and feedback encourage me to continue writing and speaking. Private me would probably keep most of my thoughts hidden in my journal instead of sharing it with the public. I’m delighted to hear that you are being blessed!

There are a few groups of people I’d like to acknowledge:

Thank you to those of you who are faithfully reading my blog and to the more than 400 of you who have clicked “like” here! I pray you are being encouraged and will tell your friends about my blog.

Wherever you are in your faith journey, I pray that you will live for the audience of The One and not the applause of man. Purpose in your heart to obey God and to follow His leading and His timing, and He will amaze you by how He shows up and shows off in your life! Glory! “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4)

I’d like to leave you with this priestly blessing found in the Bible:

“The Lord bless you and keep you;

the Lord make his face shine on you

and be gracious to you;

the Lord turn his face toward you

and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26)

Happy Halftime of the Year!

calendar-660670_1920

Happy June! It’s the month when we celebrate summer, grads, dads, and weddings. It’s also the halfway point of the year. It’s the perfect time to take stock of how the year is going.

How are you doing with your goals? Do you remember the one word you picked out for 2016 or the resolution you made in January?

Despite any trials, tests, or difficulties you may be facing, is this year shaping up to be as great as you had hoped? Are you drawing closer to Jesus? Is your faith in God increasing? I pray your answer is, “Yes!”

You may recall that my one word for this year is NEW. I’m delighted that so far my year has been filled with new experiences! You can read about the launch of my new book Abounding Faith: 30 Bible Heroes Who Will Inspire You to Believe God for the Impossible, my very first Abounding Faith Live event, and hear about my visits to the United Nations. I’m also getting to meet new people and visit new places.

Can you tell that I am grateful to God for this *new* season that I am in? I’m so thankful for those who are praying for me as I continue on my faith journey!

I pray that you are see God moving in your life and that you will accomplish all the good works God has predestined for you.

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10)

If you are feeling stuck, discouraged, or confused about how to live your God-given passion and purpose, I would love to help you make the rest of the year the best of your year as your Life Coach. I would be delighted to help you identify your God-given dreams, explore what’s holding you back from living those dreams, prayerfully map out a plan together so you can reach your goals, and hold you accountable and pray for you along your journey. If you’d like to learn more about having me as your Life Coach, please click here.

May you be even more fruitful in the upcoming six months! Blessings!

Reflections on Abounding Faith Live

IMG_5190 - Copy

I’m so touched by everyone who braved the stormy weather to be part of my very first Abounding Faith Live event! God placed the idea for this event in my heart awhile ago. It was so special to get to live out this part of the dream!

I’m grateful to my friends at Queens NY AGLOW for partnering with me and Open Bible Church Int’l for allowing us to use their beautiful church!

13240571_599864423510281_7414554666849135875_n

What a blessing it was to have this father and daughter duo of Orisi and Tabitha Rabukawaqa lead us during the worship time!

My hope is that those who attended the event were inspired to believe God for the impossible! I pray that folks were blessed during the time of worship, prayer, and fellowship afterwards!

I also pray that readers are inspired by my new book Abounding Faith: 30 Bible Heroes Who Will Inspire You to Believe God for the Impossible!

God willing, I plan to have more Abounding Faith Live events. If you are interested in hosting an Abounding Faith Live event, please email Info@AboundingFaith.com. Blessings!

Announcing Abounding Faith Live

Abounding Faith Live NO ADDRESS

I’m excited to share that I will be hosting my very first Abounding Faith Live event on May 14! I hope that everyone who comes will be inspired to believe God for the impossible!

I’m delighted to be partnering with my friends at Queens NY Aglow. I’m looking forward to sharing an encouraging word and spending time with you in prayer, praise, and fellowship! If you are in the NYC area, I hope you can join me. All are welcome! Light refreshments will be served. For more info, please email Info@AboundingFaith.com.

So why is an introvert like me hosting events? Because I believe the Lord is calling me to speak and write for His glory!

This decision is similar to hopping on a plane to go on missions trips to the Amazon in Brazil, the Andes in Ecuador, the slums of Ethiopia, and the streets of Honduras and Peru. It’s similar to leading outreaches in NYC and having the courage to share my thoughts on this blog and in my books.

When God says it’s time to go on an adventure with Him, it’s time.

I feel blessed to be in this season of sharing the Good News of the Gospel with hurting people and encouraging believers in their faith!

I’m touched by those who have come alongside of me and are supporting me with their prayers and encouraging words!

It’s a blessing to get to share some of this journey with you right here on this blog. I hope my story encourages you to Pray, Dream, Do, Repeat!

Has God placed a dream in your heart? If God is for you, who can be against you? (Romans 8:31)

Many blessings to you as you run the race that God has for you, and keep your eyes on Jesus until you cross your finish line!

Peek Inside the New Abounding Faith Devotional

IMG_4317

I’d like to share the intro to my new devotional Abounding Faith: 30 Bible Heroes Who Will Inspire You to Believe God for the Impossible! I hope it blesses you! You can grab your copy on Amazon.

Introduction

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him” (Hebrew 11:6).

The Bible describes faith as follows, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see” (Hebrews 11:1). As Christians, we are called to walk by faith and not by sight, meaning, many times, we need to believe before we see the results. That is easier said than done!hey say children spell the word love, “T.I.M.E.”  I agree. And I would venture to say one of the main ways God spells love is, “T.R.U.S.T.” Our Heavenly Father delights in us as we put our faith and hope in Him, especially when we are going through hard times.

But when we read about God’s character in the Bible and read His promises, we can stand firm on His Word. When God gives us dreams and promises about our lives that line up with what we have read in the Bible, we are to grab hold of them even if at first they seem far-fetched or impossible. That just means we are about to get stretched!

God wants our faith in Him to grow!

Our faith deepens as we spend time with Jesus in prayer and reading the Word. And as we go through trials, we see God’s almighty hand working in our lives. We get to experience God’s faithfulness.

During some of the most trying and painful times in my life, when it felt like someone had pulled not just the rug but the entire ground out from under me, the only thing I had to hold onto was my faith in God. Every day was like a never-ending roller coaster. Amid the doubt, fear, and chaos, I clung to the truths that God is good, God is faithful, God is in control, and nothing is impossible for Him!

Those can all sound like trite expressions, but when you are going through what seems like hell on earth, those words come alive!

It was during that season that I would soak in God’s presence and His Word and inhale His promises to me in the Bible. I learned that part of our maturing process is having our faith tested. That’s how our spiritual muscles get exercise. It is how our character is refined so we can be conformed into the image of Christ. It is also how spiritual warriors are trained. We need to learn to use our shield of faith to extinguish the fiery darts that the enemy throws at us.

I mentioned some of the lessons I learned during that time in my life in my first book, Waiting on God Well: How to Prevent Breaking Down on Your Way to Your Breakthrough!

During that particular season of poring over the Scriptures, I found great comfort from the Bible personalities I will be sharing about in this devotional. Their faith in God inspired me and gave me hope when I needed it the most. I would read and re-read how God came through for them, and I would have peace that God would see me through as well.

When I would ask God why I was going through all these tests, one of the verses that kept coming to my mind was when Jesus was talking to Simon Peter before He went to the Cross. Jesus said, “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers” (Luke 22:31).

Did you catch that? Jesus interceded for Peter to stay strong in his faith and exhort the other disciples once he was restored.

And so my friend, that is why I am writing this devotional. The Lord has graciously brought me through that chapter in my life. Now I am praying that your faith will be strengthened.

My hope is that this devotional will encourage you to believe God for the impossible! Dare to remove the limits off of God and watch what He will do. God is able! He is all-powerful and all-knowing. He is never asleep on the job. God loves you more than you will ever know and He is closer than you think!

The men and women you will read about were regular people like you and me. They had their flaws and imperfections, which you can read about in the Bible. But I will be spotlighting some of their defining moments. I want to give you just a snapshot of those times when they took a leap of faith and took God at His Word.

There was nothing special about them. The One who is special is God! He performed all the miracles in these stories. He can do the miraculous for you according to His will.

I pray that any storms you face in your life will help drive you closer to God. I pray your personal relationship with Jesus will continue to grow. As you abide in Christ, your prayers will better align with His desires for you.

Pray bold prayers and wait for God to answer in His timing and in His way. He will see you through. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
