Since the last time I was on line, my son, age 32 was shot down in a driveby shooting on August 18, 2009. Needless to say, I have been on my own private walk in the "valley of bacca". That was then and this is now, and I thank God that in my weakness God was made strong. He is giving me my "hind legs to stand". He is also preparing my voice to be a trumpet that will "break in like a fire and like a hammer" (Jer. 23:29) After witnessing with my own two eyes, my son "die to soon" my call has now been upgraded to go after a "generation and not a congregation", my call is to "cry loud and spare not" to let my whoop & hollar not be wasted or for people to like me. My voice is be shaped to stir people not to just "give" but "live in such a way that God gets the glory for the story, for only what we do for Christ will last.
I was told earlier by a friend that I was to preach my son's eulogy, but my husband thought that I would not be able to give the "Kingdom Message" because of my grief, for "weeping may endure but for a night and joy comes in the morning light". I was later told by someone attending the services that, I had indeed preached his funeral when I along with my husband closed the top of the lid on my son's casket and told him to rest, because one day we would meet again according to 1 Cor. 15:, for that is a "change that I believe in".
Because there is a season and time everything, and only God know the plans that He has for us, but His sheep know His voice and a stranger will not be followed, and thusly my assignment changes again in God. I will go with His flow for I am His "GLO" that will let her light so shine among men that they will see good works and glorify our Father who art in heaven. As I closed the lid of the casket, our Father will open up blind eyes, unstop deaf ears, and make the lame to leap for joy in their hearst. He will open and I will enter as Noah and his family did. Only the doors that He has prepared for the people who are willing hear and change from their wicked ways, thus says the LORD of Host. The "wages of sin continues to be death, and that the gift of God is eternal life", no matter what the flesh does, God has a way out for all who repent and turn their lives over to a righteous and just judge. Pray for and with me for the souls that will come running for a home in heaven, and not a house on earth.
Sincerely working with you for HIM
