First and foremost, let me give praise to The Most High for getting me through such an interesting year! 2018 is coming closer and closer to an end. It seems like once October is over.. the rest of the year is basically over too.
The year was interesting but it was a year that brought change!
Every bit of that change was for the better. 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
From moving out of my luxury apartment, to legalizing my Non-Profit Organization
… to getting in TWO car wrecks back to back,
… leaving my corporate America job,
… exploring in the land of Jamaica,
… almost dying on a snowy mountain top in Colorado…
That’s not even half of it but God’s grace has steadily been over me!
Everything that went about in 2018 brought a handful of life lessons and wisdom that I will take into the New Year. ✨
Right now, it’s going on 4 years since I dedicated my life to Jesus and starting my relationship with Him.
After asking, seeking then receiving the gift of prophecy + dreams/visions… 🙏
I am at awe to see certain promises that God made to me, actually manifest in full form.
The Ascender’s Touch becoming an legal entity on May 10th, 2018 is one of them!!!😇👏🏾🙌🏾✨✨✨
I remember sitting in my lonesome bedroom, literally at rock BOTTOM…
Falling down unto my knees…
Willing to give up EVERYTHING as I craved to hear from God.😩
I was a complete mess but interestingly enough… my faith grew the most during this time.
As my flesh was weak, my spirit grew strong in The Lord.
I refused to continue to let the world use me or get me down.
*cues Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next* haha!
Faith, Hope, + Joy in The Lord will get you out of any dark pit that is trying to take you over. You may or may not know me but I’m a living testimony of it!!!
Back in 2016, when I first created this blog, I posted on how you can grow closer to God.
Here’s a sample of it down below:
“Let me remind you guys that God already knows every single trial, tribulation and stumbling block that we are currently going through.
Even with such knowledge about His children, it doesn’t change the fact that He wants us to personally express ourselves to Him.
He wants us to open/confess through our mouths…. sharing our feelings and thoughts with Him. Yes, of course, God knows what you ‘re thinking and what you will say before you do.
It’s the simple fact that you must talk and walk out in faith to grow such a relationship with Christ… or anyone for that matter.
For example: Let’s say you have a crush on someone that you have a class with at school. To actually get to know that person deep down, you must simply have conversations with them right? I think we can all agree that on that. Tiny conversations usually end up growing into deep conversations further along in the relationship.
We are always willing to go out of our way for people who don’t even think twice about us.
Why not open our mouths and take out the time to get to know The Lord? The Creator Himself?
The one who never leaves us nor forsakes us.
All in all, acknowledging God is important. We naturally (as believers) know He is there, but we also have to walk/act it out during our daily routines.
God, Jesus and His angels never stop looking out for us.
They look after us when we’re sleep, when we are awake, as well as, when we eat.
Just know that whatever it is that we do, God is right there being a witness to it. How mind blowing is that??
We naturally can’t see His omnipresence, yet He is still there!
During the winter, spring, summer and fall. He never leaves us to fend for ourselves.
Once I understood a portion of the magnitude that this withholds, His protection became a comfort for me.
- How AMAZING does it feel to know that you are not struggling alone?
- How WONDERFUL does it feel to know that God is rooting for you to overcome your daily battles?
If you didn’t know before, my friend, let me reassure you!!
God hears every one of our prayers. There’s never a moment where he leaves your side!
HE WILL BE THERE FOR YOU!!!!
Speak to Him. He is listening and will provide wisdom unto you as you grow closer to Him. His soft still voice will start to become louder than before. Best part, He does it out of pure love.
This true love (agape) of Jesus may pass our understanding but I am thankful for it. Without the love of Christ, none of us would be here right now.
Embrace the life that you have been given and smile along the way. Trust that there is greatness coming your way because we serve a GREAT God. You are royalty. It is time that you finally realize it.”
