Tonight I sit here on the fifth floor of a New York City Apartment with nothing more than a Dream, a Strategy and Faith in my heart. My dream is to reach people of all nationality, race and tongue with a message of Purpose and Hope and Love. I care about living a life that is pleasing to my Heavenly Father and I genuinely care about the well-being of others. I find such great joy in living and making a difference in the lives of others. And amidst all this I would love to live the life of my dreams. Ever since I was a little girl the sky has always been in my heart. I remember and let me just say I still do dream of waking up in a new place every now and then.
In the midst of this desire though I do desire that level of stability, a word I never really know as a child. I desire the freedom to continue doing the work I love and to be able to live a life of abundance while doing it in integrity and truth.
So with all these desires in my heart and knowing full well that my time has come to live out the promises of God I remember Abraham and how God had called him to the land of prosperity but instead he found himself in the midst of the famine. Finding myself in this situation a few days ago I felt like booking the next flight home back to Jamaica but then I remember the promises of God to me. I was born to inspire Nations. I have a purpose here on this earth. People are waiting to hear me in this land of America just like people have heard me in Jamaica.
So this morning after leaving the nutrition shop after having my morning shake I went to an AA meeting and I was able to share with them for just a few minutes the importance of knowing your purpose in life. I didn’t receive any monetary compensation for that but what I did receive was more than one thank you and a lengthy encouragement from an ex drug addict to continue doing what I am doing.
So again I may be in this Big City and I may be very little but I am Trusting in The Big and Great God who brought me here to Open Doors for me.
PEOPLE MAY NOT KNOW ME HERE BUT THEY WILL KNOW I AM HERE.
Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, "Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain." And God granted his request. 1 Chronicles 4:10
