God has been moving in my heart since I was a child to help others through a ministry of sharing life and hope. My journey has been one of many valleys and a few mountain tops. God has literally saved my life on more than one occasion. My experiences have included abuse, failed relationships, low self-esteem, strongholds, and more, you name it I've been there. My mentor often relates my life story to that of Job's. Learning to laugh at myself and the crazy experiences I've walked through has been pertinent to keeping a positive outlook. I'm quite confident sarcasm is a 6th Love Language! Most importantly I've learned how to press into God on a daily basis. No matter where you come from or what you're facing you are not alone. Jesus is standing in the gap for you!
As God has commanded us, let's be strong and courageous. Facing this world is no easy task. You may be thinking you are not strong enough. Remember “God's grace is sufficient for you, for God's power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore boast all the more gladly of your weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon you."(2 Corinthians 12:9). Press into God and He will draw near to you.
