God never ceases to amaze me with the opportunities He continuously provides. Saturday, May 20, I was asked to speak at the Black Orchid Book Club meeting about my new book, “A Vision of Victory.” It was a time of fellowship, and talking about God – two of my favorite things!
I woke up at 1:53am in a panic. I’d had a terrible dream of being attacked by Lions in a river. I hadn’t eaten before bed, which is typically when such a horrific dream would occur, so I didn’t understand the cause of it. But the more it sat on my spirit, the more I realized that this was God at work.
This book was a two year process: two years of experiencing loss, set-back, and hurt. It was a very painful process. I’ve never felt so attacked in any season of my life until this journey began. BUT GOD had a purpose for it all.
Isaiah 43: 18-19 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!” Happy NEW Year! Aren’t you glad God is doing a new thing in your life? If not, you most definitely should be. Let me tell you why.
James 4:2 “You have not because you ask not.”
The first thing on my mind this morning was James 4:2. I was getting ready to go to the gym and was just about to walk out the door, but God wouldn’t allow me to leave my house until I wrote this scripture down and posted it to the wall in my room. As I pondered over the reasons He would have me to do this, it suddenly became clear: He never wants me to forget it.
If you’re looking for some Monday morning inspiration, look no further! Michelle Williams stopped by Sunday Best on yesterday and performed her latest inspirational single “Believe in Me” from her Journey to Freedom album that dropped last year. Take a look after the jump.
