I remember it like it was yesterday. Driving to my friend’s baby shower, I felt God telling me that I needed to tell people of Him. So of coarse, my response to God was”Really?!” I’m about three or four months pregnant with my twins, still dealing with the passing of my mom, AND I’m still trying to run my household, Lord!
Being a good servant of God, I began writing of various situations of which God truly came through. I really didn’t know where God was going with this but, I still obeyed. I began to write exactly how I felt whether it was good or bad. With great detail, I literally began to write my life on paper. No matter what the subject or situation, my faith remained strong. This is the main point that I want my readers to come to understand. No matter what is going on, God is always there.
After that, I created a FaceBook group page titled “Me and My Journey.” The role of this page was to do exactly what God intended me to to. He wanted me to share my journey with Him to a world that is trying so hard to take Him out. God wanted me to show the world that no matter what is going on, HE WILL PREVAIL. As a child and a firm believer, I truly believe this with all my heart.
Soon after the Me and My Journey group page was created, my blog was created. So now I post my stories on my blog, my FaceBook page, and various other sites as well.
So why do I do this? There are two reasons. (1) God told me so. This is the top and up most important reason. He has a purpose – an assignment for all of us. Right now, this is MY purpose. As I have stated before, I don’t know where God is going to take me from here, but I can tell you that I trust Him. Therefore, I will continue to do this until He tells me it’s time to move to the next step. (2) Writing these stories actually help me a great deal. For as long as I can remember, writing things down has always helped. So, while I’m sharing my trials and tribulations with you, I’m not only getting them off my chest but, I’m also showing God’s great power and love over my life. Trust me when I tell you, every trial I have told you about, GOD HAS PULLED ME THROUGH!
In essence, what I do is open my life to you. God wants me to show you that my life isn’t perfect. I don’t have millions of dollars stacked away. I don’t live in a mansion. However, with those few things I don’t have, my growing faith and hope totally out weigh and are far more valuable. When I write, I am not whining or trying to get attention. I want you to understand that even though there are rough patches, I still praise and have faith in our Father.
Attention, praise, and glory are not why I do what I do. I do what I do to bring glory, honor, and praise to God. While doing that, I’m also helping someone to understand God if they do not understand how He works. Much like a mustard seed, the littlest of curiosity can truly change the life of an unbeliever forever!
I absolutely love telling you my stories and I hope you enjoy and share them. However, at the end of the day, it is really all about honoring and glorifying our Heavenly Father.

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men
