I wake up this morning with my heart filled with absolute joy, love and promise for 2017!

Friends, the last four months of 2016 was perhaps the worst time I had ever had to endure throughout my entire life. No need to go over the details, but I was just emotionally, physically and mentally left absolutely bankrupt in a valley so deep, and so dark that I never thought I would ever see the light of day again. However, in my heart of hearts, I knew that The Light was shinning more brilliantly than ever, because Jesus—was right there with me every step of the way. Together, with Him, I grew stronger in His name and it helped rescue me from my darkness.

They say everything God does in your life is meant to bring you closer to Him and I truly believe that whole-heartedly. From a perspective of Faith . . . I am now stronger than I have ever been. I have a clarity that I’ve never experienced before, and now I know what it is I need to do in order to accomplish my #1 job and priority every day—to glorify God’s name and God’s Kingdom.

Changes need to be made . . . I need to change . . .and, it is through God’s will that I can, and the good news is–so can you. The important thing is to get our priorities STRAIGHT—God First—first and foremost. From there—family, family, family. Right behind that–put others before you every day of your life. Live a servant’s life—that’s what Jesus came to this world 2,000 years ago to teach us. As far as work, or your job? Real simple—do the best you can absolutely do–again—in order to glorify your Creator. But, after that—LEAVE IT THERE. Work is a way to support those you love and those who depend on you—that’s it. And, if you have ABSOLUTE faith, you know that God already knows your needs and will provide for you anyway. Look at me. I think I’m going on SIX years since I last worked at a full-time job, and here I am, somehow miraculously still paying my bills.

Friends—it needs to start within your heart–that’s where it starts . . . and ends. The second you let God in not only will you understand . . . but . . . he will do the work for you!

Love and Peace
