As the years go by, summertime is more of a reflection period. It never leaves. Reminiscing of the good ole days, I am thinking to myself 'what was it that I have always wanted to do with myself and who did I want to become?' Even at an early age, I knew I wanted to inspire others in some sort of way. Time goes by, trying to search for my calling and purpose, I received such a humbling prophecy in church toward the end of summer. God used my pastor then informed me to pick up a pen and start writing because there are 3 books that will need written. I was overwhelmed yet relieved. After many months to years, a prayer has been answered.
Earlier in the year while writing papers for Religion 101 in college, writing was more than just a work in itself but it was my God-given talent that I failed to grasp. Subconsciously, I even told my husband that I would like to write a book one day. Writing this 'book' just wasn't in my full awareness. If it had not been for the Lord, I would still be in the dark about my future. Today I am very thankful for the message I received from God and very excited to begin this journey and share it. And whatever form or fashion, I pray that it touches you and inspires you.
With all of this being said, I have become a little more aware of my surroundings, senses, desires, hopes, dreams and who I am in Christ. I have learned a lot of things within the last 6 weeks and still have more to go. The journey will be worth it. I'm ready, good or bad. This is just the beginning of what is to come.
