This blog post is to share something I never expected to happen in a million years. You see growing up in the projects and what most call the hood in the City of Atlanta, I got caught up in the street life. I have witnessed a lot over my 54 years on this earth. I have done a lot as well and not all of it was good. Especially not in God's eyes! We won't get into details because that is not the focus.
I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior in my early 20 twenties. I believe it was at the age of 24, however, I was not following Jesus. I was still out there doing my own thing living life as best I could to survive. Not realizing, it was not me saving me, it was God protecting me from myself and my messed up decisions.
After moving to Douglasville in 2003, everything began to slowly change for me. Life as I once knew it was not the same. Though I would have never chosen Douglasville, it was in God's plan (Jeremiah 29:11). He knew where I needed to be, in order to get me where He wanted me to be. And to make me into the woman He created me to be (Psalm 139). He knew His way was better for me, evidently I had no clue.
After much adjusting to a different lifestyle and a lot of pruning by the Word of God, I will be licensed as one of God's Ministers. Trust me when I say, I would have never in a million years thought God could or would use me to minister His Word. It is truly amazing to look back over my life and see a life transformed by the grace of God!! I give all glory, honor, and praise to Him for loving me the way that He does, unconditionally!
