First of all, I want to say thank you to everyone who has already pre-ordered my new fiction novel, "Breaking Free From Me." Your support has been a source of encouragement that motivates me to continue in my purpose. We can all achieve some measure of success on our own, but the feeling that comes from walking in our God given purpose is one that cannot be explained with mere words.
Every time I write a post about my upcoming book, I am reminded of a time when I felt like my purpose was over. I was confined to a wheelchair and bedridden and I literally thought my life was over. I was in physical pain, but the emotional pain was ten times worse. I made the mistake of taking my eyes off of God, and instead, I focused on my present state. I knew God was a healer, but a lapse in judgment caused me to magnify my problems instead of magnifying God.
When I came to myself, I realized that God was using my valley moment as the very catalyst to refuel and realign my purpose. As I allowed God to the mend the broken pieces within me, my faith reignited and a determination to move forward was birthed. As a result of total surrender to God's plan for my life, I have a greater sense of value and self-worth because my desire is to please God and not others. I know from experience that whenever you minister or share a gift, you have to be first partaker. In writing "Breaking Free From Me", I realize that my valley moment was a lesson in dealing with emotions and ultimately dying to myself in order to become the person God created me to be. My hope and prayer is that you will find a new sense of freedom in your life as you read this book. I hope it's the same type of freedom I experienced after writing it.
