Radio Interviews!

Good Day readers! I’m popping in to share more of my journey with you. Today was so amazing God really showed up and showed out as I was interviewed by KXEN Christian talk  Radio Station. We talked about my new book Never Forsaken and discussed how God can and will always make a way for those who love and believe in his Son Christ Jesus!

God is doing great things in my life and I give all the honor glory and praise to him.

A Message Of Hope

What would you do if you knew that your belief in the true Word of God could move mountains as it says in the bible? I believe that God has put me here today on this earth to share his truth, his unchanging, non failing protective love for us. He wants us all to be in good health happy and living in his glory. Today I ask on behalf of the kingdom of God that you support a message God has put down on the inside of me, through trials, and hardships I have come to know the power of God’s mercy and grace upon my life. My book Never Forsaken is a testimony of the kingdom of God and is sure to bring you hope and encouragement no matter what your going through in life today. My dear brothers and sisters in Christ be encouraged for God Is in control you need only to believe, because your weeping is only for a season. And your joy will be much longer. Below you will find a link to my book get a copy, give a copy as a gift to a friend and spread it around when you support God’s message you shall be blessed, I pray now in the name of Jesus Christ himself that your cup be filled and runneth over!

Summary: Never Forsaken is a story of hope and conquering fears through faith in Jesus Christ. Detailing one woman’s triumph through learning of an illness within her body and giving birth to a sickly, disabled child. Marlena is terrified upon finding out about the condition of her Heart at a doctor’s appointment, and to top it all off she receives the news from her physician that her son will be born disabled. As she battles high anxiety and frequent panic attacks Marlena pushes her way through the full term of her pregnancy wrestling with the question will I survive. “You’re coming out alive soon one day cause only Jesus can deliver you right where you’re at because God ordained him to do that.” “Nobody can make your soul happy; Only God can do that. Nobody can fix you when your broken only God can do that.” “keep pushing till you push through. keep singing till you sing out.”

Challenges And Sleepless Nights

The night before our little angel’s operation, my husband and I went into deep prayer together for our son. We needed to talk to God. Most of all, we knew we needed to gain the strength to do what was best for Arkel. The next morning was quiet. Our children slept in their beds peacefully. It was around 3:00 am when Donte’ and I woke up and showered and dressed early. Donte’ assisted me in getting keli prepped  for surgery, I had filled his baby bath with the bottle of cleansing solution the hospital had given me to sterilize keli’s body before we brought him in.  (Never Forsaken)
Please follow my blog for more snippets from my book Never Forsaken in stores in two weeks!

Wait And See

Eternally With You

We’ve talked at great length about the wilderness being a place where we feel as though God is no longer interested or active in our wait. As far as we can tell, He’s abandoned us. That’s just not true. Take this to the bank and deposit it for safekeeping: God is always present with you.

This characteristic of God is defined as being omnipresent. It’s a big Bible word we can add to our vocabulary and retrieve when abandonment issues tiptoe into our thought life. Turn the corner of this page down and put a large star by this sentence: Omnipresent means always present; everywhere at the same time. Now, when you feel abandoned, remember to come back here and remind yourself that God is constantly, forever, eternally with you.

He is never not with me. He is never not with you. (English majors and grammar police, please don’t email me about the double negatives.) He is next to us in our wilderness, even if we don’t see Him at work. Whoa! I just blew my own mind.

Even though we feel abandoned by God, we aren’t. God didn’t abandon Abraham and Sarah. God didn’t abandon the Israelites. God has not and will not abandon you. Try singing these words to the tune of “Jesus Loves Me, This I Know”: “God is with me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Though His presence I can’t see, God will not abandon me. Yes, God is with me. Yes, God is with me. Yes, God is with me. The Bible tells me so.”

God didn’t abandon David. He roamed in and out of caves and strongholds. He dodged arrows at the dinner table and fled from the king’s army. For over fifteen years, he wandered and waited for his appointing. But David’s wait did come to an end.

We know we’re waiting well when we truly experience peace in God’s pauses and plans. The peace is demonstrated in the resting of our thoughts and actions. Our real focus becomes a deep and abiding relationship with the Person of our faith, rather than manipulating our circumstances to receive the object of our wait. David waited well by focusing on God, not the problems, the people, or the palace.

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 41:10 KJV

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:38‭-‬39 KJV
