God told me to write so I did. God told me to get on the mic so I did. God told me to form my business (Ms. Marlene's Office) so I did. When God asks me to do something not only did I listen, but I acted. When I acted God showed me why He asked me to do those things. I began sharing my writing and forming the business in just this year and already not even a full eights months later because technically it has only been since April 23rd God has exceeded my expectations only because I trusted Him in everything that He was asking me to do.
When I seen God coming through on His promises I decided that I would make a request. I figured if He asked me to do something and I did it then I could ask Him to do something for me and God would do it. In late July I set a goal to reach 100 likes on my FB page by the end of the summer https://www.facebook.com/Queenauthorpoet/?pnref=story Yesterday I was updating my pages, as a good business woman does, I noticed that I was at 95 organic likes!!! I got so excited I busted out into a full blown, Baptist church thankful praise! Hallelujah!! I earned all 95 likes. It meant a lot to me because I am a single woman raising two children, working full time, running a small business PT, attending school PT to finish a bachelors in accounting, an author/poet and helping out in the community and it is ALL because I put God first. And I can do all of these things through Christ who strengthens me because I was not only born into sin, but born into poverty and drugs. It looked like I would be another statistic: teenage pregnancy, suicide, no education, negative relationships, mental/physical/emotional abuse and my own addictions ON TOP of whatever oppression the world had to press on me in addition to the oppression from my own family and the Black community. But God chose me! God called me out of darkness into His marvelous light for a GREATER purpose. I am here to tell you that God is real!!!!!
So in appreciation to God for helping me to meet my business goal sooner I ran 7 miles for Him. This morning as I am training to run my 5th race in my #RunAcrossAmerica goal I ran all 7 miles for God as a humble appreciation for the now 100+ organic likes on FB in addition to ALL that He has done for me because you know what He did not have to do it.
Thank-you kind Holy Spirit!!! Asante Sana
