WoW I can’t believe that it has been a year since I posted about God using us to do extraordinary things. So much has occurred since that post. Please click on link and read it before you proceed to read this post God uses plain ordinary people to do extraordinary things!!!
Ok WELCOME BACK!!! SO.MUCH.HAS.HAPPENED. Well let me get right into it. I was given a vision by God to start up a ministry on September 22,2015. At first I was super excited and ready to spring into action but then the enemy took over. I’m not saying that I turned into this crazy woman but my passion and purpose was attacked and I couldn’t figure out why I stopped pursing my God-given vision.
After reading Fervent by Priscilla Shirer it was revealed to me why I stopped pursing my purpose. Satan knew that by me walking in my purpose that I would going against his plan. He knew I am a force that will be victorious. Shedding tears of frustration and formulating a battle plan, empowered me to fight for my purpose! So 5 months later I stepped out on faith and presented this ministry to the youth minister at my church. Since then SO MUCH has happened. God has huge things in store for this ministry and I’m so humbled and blessed to be a vessel to carry His vision out.
My biggest update is that on August 12-13,2016 I will be hosting my very first City- wide sleepover conference. I would have never guessed that in a million years that I would be hosting anything. There are so many emotions that I am experiencing leading up to the sleepover. I am SUPER PUMPED to see what God is going to do. He is definitely working on me and my trust levels. Throughout this year so many mind blowing opportunities have been given to me and I can’t wait to see what happens with them all. You’ll just have to stay tuned in to find out….
I know that I haven’t been blogging as much as I use to, but I will be posting more again. I’ve been extremely busy making moves walking in my purpose. Love you all and thank you for your support. ❤
Check out my ministry website Hey! G.I.R.L.
Feel free to leave a comment below on your yearly update. I would love to see how God is working in your lives!!!
‘TIL NEXT TIME MY LOVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Day 6: Started off a little rough which I found out why later on that day. This picture is basically how I spent my whole Saturday at a Tapioca shop. My name was Kenda for the day LOL! I told her my name and I guess she couldn’t spell it but I thought that was too cute! I had a lot of work and things to catch up on. For some reason, I had been feeling less motivated. I was determined to get my fire burning again 🔥 but most importantly ask God why I was feeling this way. OHHHHHHHHH did he show me!!! I just started reading the book Fervent by Priscilla Shirer and it is definitely not a book for a person that is not willing to truly grow their prayer life with God and fight against the schemes of the enemy. So after I finished completing one assignment, I said to myself “oh it’s on sister, let’s do this”. But little did I know that it was EXACTLY the answer to my mysterious passion/drive flame potential burnout. I thought that I had a pretty strong prayer life and I still do but this book has given me more strategies to defeat those moments from the enemy that come up like losing focus and when you lose your passion.
Here is the book and I’ve been journaling for a long time so this is my newest prayer journal along with this amazing book!!! Please go get it and read if you are tired of the enemy being victorious in your life. So after reading the first chapter I realized why my motivation was dim. The attacks that the enemy has designed are so strategic and subtle and if we aren’t made aware of them, we will become defeated by the enemy. I am loving this point of my life and I am so excited about what God is bringing me into. I’m even more thrilled to able to share it with you and bring you along this journey to encourage you to make God the focus of your life.
Passion is the fuel in the engine of your purpose- Priscilla Shirer
If you have lost your excitement and drive for living out your purpose that God created you for, tap back into your main source… God!
Day 5: Family day!!! Where do I begin? Well I’ll start with understanding the true blessing that God gives us with our families. It makes my heart ❤️❤️ smile thinking about all of them. No we are not perfect by any means but love each other dearly. My brother in law was affirmed as Elder at his church and we came to support him. It is such a phenomenal feeling when you can give to others and how God equips you to be able to give without wanting anything in return. I loved being able to see all of my old church family and hugging them. Oh how I miss them and I am even more thankful to hear such encouraging words and love from them. My heart was full yesterday. As you can tell in the picture from above my niece had a volleyball tournament and they won every single game they played the whole weekend! I’m a proud auntie 🙂 of all of my babies.
Here is my big baby that is so excited to FINALLY be taller than me!! Sunday was a great day!!!
‘TIL NEXT TIME MY LOVES ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
