New Chapter|

It’s been a while and I can definitely say that I missed every one of you. But I must also admit, that some time away was needed. It almost feels surreal that I’m back, writing this out to you after everything I just went through for the past few months. I can’t wait to tell you all about the places I’ve been with the Lord. Through the desert I just walked, the fire I just went through, and the deep waters I just passed through. At the time, that brokeness, pain and suffering felt unbearable but in the end He made me stand again. I cant quite get into details yet, but I will soon. Promise. But as I write these few words out to you ( aka book) I can’t help but fight tears of victory. I look at this picture, and I see a different/new version of myself. I see a young woman, who is stronger than she’s ever been told all her life. I see a passionate servant and disciple of Jesus Christ who has known hardship and will continue to live through it, to live in the calling that has been given to her at whatever cost because my heart is SOLD OUT on God. I am writing this with more conviction than I’ve ever had in my entire life, with fresh new strength and power obtained in weakness, passion for Jesus, and nurturing that came from pushing through the pains of life. A new passion and increased faith procured gained from processing life in secret, in a place only He is witness of. It may of had hurt terribly, I suffered to get to where I am today but it was worth it. Because now I can honestly say that I am ready to conquer the world without fear with the Holy Spirit by my sides, and actually believe it. Man there’s so much I wish I could say right this moment. But today, if there’s one thing I could say to someone out there is that, no matter who you are, no matter where you find yourself today, know that MY God is truly the God He says He is. He is El’Hanaeeman, the Faithful God, and El’Chayai the God of my life. All throughout the past season when ALL my strength was gone I kept hearing Him repeat one thing over and over again. And I believe the Spirit of the Lord is saying it to someone tonight. “ When you walk through the waters, I will be with you. And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.” Oh yes you! I don’t know what you’re going through today or in which season you’re in, but heart-to-heart, with tears rushing down my face, I wish I could hold your hand and promise you that you’ll make it through, not because of your own strength but because of His own mighty power and strength. You have never been alone in this, and you never will. Today I make a prayer for all you out there, who are struggling, crying, screaming and fighting in secret, in the quiet. Those who are suffering, broken and beaten down in the inside yet hiding it with a smile on the outside. No one knows, but He sees it all, He who searches the hearts, the deep things that men cannot see. Hang in there, you may not understand the purpose of it all today but I’m begging you please, trust your struggles and the God who is bigger than your mountains. I know it would be easier to give up, but don’t. We are hard pressed on every side, nut not crushed, perplexed but not in despair, persecuted but not abandoned, struck down but not destroyed. It’s not over. You’re just getting stronger. I certainly have, the proof? Look at the glory shining on my face…

“That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” – 2 Corinthians 12:10-11

Beginning of a new chapter, I presume…
