“Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all to see. For the glory of the LORD rises to shine on you.” Isaiah 60:1

Hidden beneath the cares of the world was my light. Carefully orchestrating events, God called me out. Aglow, as I shine for the world to see with poetry, prose, and testimony. With Jesus as the sole focus, subjects are addressed but through the lens of Christ, thus bringing glory to God and not the issue. Initially, I thought that this blog was about the pain, and in a way, it is. But it is more about God’s faithfulness through all the pain and not the pain itself.

A former slave to fear, survivor and overcomer to the effects of abuse in all forms, and witness to myself even as God sees me, I continue to yield as the Lord does a work in me. In Christ, I am learning that I was afraid to excel for fear of failure so I settled for mediocrity. Hallelujah, with the help of the Lord, I am breaking free. Each blog post is a step in the direction of freedom.

As a mother to a wonderful little boy, I never want for a reason to smile. My son’s Autism has taught me that love is a form of communication. As my son learns to speak fluently, our love speaks for us. It is my prayer that Gods love is spoken through every blog post, poem, and prose, thus penetrating through the layers of pain in each of us.

May God continue to bless you in all you do!
