I am beginning to realize that no gifting of mine, no talent of mine, no passion of mine, and no fervent desires of mine can ever save people. Only Jesus can do that and I long to share that truth with others.

I am beginning to realize that my heritage, my socio-economic status, my ethnicity, my background, nor my past could ever define who I am or what I am meant to do. Only Jesus can do that and I long to share that truth with others.

I am beginning to realize that the seven year journey I have taken to get more theologically and biblically equipped to do the work I have been called to was the means that God would use to equip me, rather than the end itself. Only Jesus can equip me and I long to share that truth with others.

I am beginning to realize that no amount of money, no amount of opportunity, no circumstance, no trail, no blessing, and no worldly good or bad can offer me peace and hope. Only Jesus can do that and I long to share that truth with others.

I have heard the stillness of His voice whispering into my soul and the name He whispered was not my own, but that of my King and Savior, Jesus. For those reasons, I follow Him and not myself. I am more confident now than ever before of the love of God that has called out to me to bring me into His kingdom and I long to share that truth with others.

I long to share this reality with the rest of humanity, in faith, with hope, and through love.

    I began because I have only started and I desire urgently to continue moving forward.

    I heard the stillness of His voice whispering into my soul and the name He whispered was not my own, but that of my King and Savior, Jesus. For those reasons, I follow Him and not myself. I am more confident now than ever before, though I pray it is less than what is to come, of the love of God that has called out to me to bring me into His kingdom.
