I am no longer the same, I have been transformed
I was rooted in rejection, shame, fear and riddled with anxiety, from abuse, trauma, and dejection from domestic violence. I was called so many negative names, that at the age of 12 I said it must be true, because I was constantly battered and berated. Everywhere I turned, it seemed as though I was treated differently - I walked with my head hung down for many years. I was so buried, that I believed more for others, I gave away things because I thought I was not deserving of them. Promotions, good jobs, clothes, money…it did not matter - I gave it away. I was told that I was not expected to have, not only that I would not have or amount to anything…but I was not expected have greatness, blessings, etc.
My confidence never developed, fear was my personality, even well into my adulthood. I was even surprised that when God began to turn things around in my life, how I so buried. I was shocked to know that even though I would cry out to God, I really did not believe for the change. I was so taken advantage of, even when it was safe for a no…I could not say it. However, as I began ‘intentionally’, going to church and listening to the Word - taking it in that God freed me, almost instantly!
When the breakthrough came, it was consistent and unwavering - it was refreshing, I had new wind and life. I had a new outlook, I began to dream for real and seek help to find my purpose, that would allow me to walk as God wanted me to. As I write this, I am crying - remembering from where I came and from where God saved, delivered, and transformed me! Hallelujah, I AM healed, restored, and set free.
The Holy Spirit is continuing to renew me and bring me to my purpose!! I am saved by Jesus’ blood divine, my joy is complete, and my soul is set free - because I am saved!! **God has transformed me, to help transform you…So, if you want to be free come and coach with me ** It is my purpose and my destiny…it is my calling!! I heard God’s call at 18 years of age and now am 57 years old. I asked God why didn’t He put it in a book to read and speak on? Because He wanted me to let you know, it is never too late! You have not run out of time; you are in the right place and position to make an impact for the Kingdom of God. Your life will be a living testimony for the Lord God Almighty. Don’t give up because God has NOT given up on you. Let Him heal you and transform you for His purpose and glory to change your story. Won’t you trust Him today and be set free to live the life God has destined for you. It is your time! It Is Your Time! IT IS YOUR TIME!! Don’t waste another minute doubting, take the leap of faith that Jesus took. Jesus leapt because He had faith in God. He did not look into Himself, because He know that He did not have what it took to do it on His own. When you leap, look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith. That is a move of and in humility; pride can’t take you there, because it will faint and fail. Know that God has you and He will never leave or forsake you, Deuteronomy 31:8 AMP ~ It is the LORD who goes before you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or abandon you. Do not fear or be dismayed. When I read this scripture, it is definitive, unwavering, no trying to make a decision. God has already made up His mind about you and He will not leave you or forsake you. And lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
