Category Archives: Excerpt From Page 185
Real Talk…..I am so grateful for God’s grace and mercy that have been the hedge of protection that endures forever around my physical heart. I am also filled with gratitude knowing that it is the illimitable and everlasting love of the Lord that has been the balm to soothe the wounds from each attack my heart has encountered.
Psalm 34:18 reminds us that, “When someone is hurting or brokenhearted, the Eternal moves in close and revives him in his pain.” I am comforted and remain encouraged because I recognize that even when I have made some decisions that were out of order, God was still there to connect the dots, to make my crooked paths straight and deliver me from my brokenheartedness.
As I look over my life thus far, it honestly hasn’t ever been the tests or challenges within academic settings, the workplace or within my community obligations that rendered me paralyzed or brokenhearted; it has always been affairs of the heart.
We are only given one physical heart and when I think about how the level of intense sorrow, I have carried throughout my life could have impacted me, I want it to be made CRYSTAL CLEAR that the ONLY reason why I am still here today and with a sound mind and a heart filled with forgiveness, hope, joy, love and peace is because of God’s AMAZING GRACE.
Whether I was privy to all the information in each circumstance or was just operating out of my own brokenness, in my darkest hours, the Lord has always been close to me and has rescued me when my spirit was crushed.
I have been granted a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning and the garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair (Isaiah 61:3).
What I am sharing with each of you today was stirred up in my spirit, after reading the above excerpt on page 185 from my book, “Your Soul’s Navigational GPS.” Each day, as I gaze upon this book and still try to wrap my mind around this God-given dream that I now have in my hands, each page that I am led to read, ministers to me in a way completely different than it did when I first wrote it.
It is my prayer that you will be blessed by Your Soul’s Navigational GPS and that you will take time out to provide feedback to me about the book along the way.
