We got this!

Early morning is usually the best time for me to have my heart to heart conversations with Jesus. The house is quiet and there are no interruptions. Jesus and I like it that way so we can freely communicate. Not that Jesus can’t communicate with you in any environment, because He can, I just hear him better when it’s peaceful. Together we discuss my dreams and His promises to me.

I always said, “Jesus, what is my purpose, what would You have me to do?” I knew He had something special for me, but I was unclear of the path. But, God is a great God and He will let you know your purpose if you ask and be open to receive. He always told me, don’t worry — we got this. Jesus told me that I would be a motivational speaker and I will go throughout the world telling everyone about Him and I trust His words.

On Saturday, Oct. 5, at 10:15 a.m. I am speaking at Bracken Ville Center in Hockessin, Delaware. My pastor asked me if I would do it and I jumped at the opportunity. I was made to go out and preach the Word and spread the love of Jesus. My heart is singing because this is something I’ve been wanting to do since I was a child. One thing about Jesus is He will fulfill His promise to you no matter how long it may take.

So, I am studying the Word, attending Bible study and Sunday School to gain a better understanding of the Bible. I need to learn all that is available to be able to go throughout the world as an ambassador for Christ. Sure Jesus will help me and provide me with the words to preach, but He also says study to show yourself approved. I’m doing my part and He will do His and together — we got this!

Sometimes it seems like forever for Jesus to give you what you desire, but be patient and He will keep His Word. I was a small child when I asked Jesus for this and He does what He promises. Jesus is a wise God. He will not give you anything until you are ready no matter what we want because He knows what’s around the corner and we don’t. So, hold on your time is coming.

If ever you need me as a speaker give me a call at no charge. Freely Jesus gives so I will give.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord; thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. Be blessed in Jesus’ name.
