I remember writing the following in my January 2007 article entitled The Secret Place:
As you pursue your passion in 2007 stay focused on me. Do not look to the left or right but know that I have it all under control. I will never leave you nor forsake you. You may not understand everything right now but always know I am with you. Trust in me. Passionately pursue me. Love everyone. Forgive everyone.
Psalm 91:1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. (AMP)
That article was the only one written in 2007. That was the year my life changed forever.
A lot has changed for me during these past few years but the one thing that has stayed constant is the love I have for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The best part of this is I know He loves me.
In the past few years I have grown, matured and my faith in God has increased mightily.
Now it is time to change the world! How you ask? For me, one sentence at a time. God has given us all a purpose. I know my purpose is not sitting around watching but DOING. He has opened the door for us to walk through. There are so many people who have never heard about Jesus.
I have had to leave familiar territory for uncharted territory knowing God was with me every step of the way. The words God had me to write in 2007 have been updated for 2014.
As you pursue your passion in 2014 stay focused on me. Do not look to the left or right but know that I have it all under control. I will never leave you nor forsake you. You may not understand everything right now but always know I am with you. Trust in me. Passionately pursue me. Love everyone. Forgive everyone.
2015 is not far behind. Get prepared for a great awakening. God has begun a new work in you and for some the fire has been re-ignited!
No longer will you be watching but you will be doing.
You were born for a purpose. Step out in faith and do what has to be done.
I am totally convinced that whatever gifts you have been given by God are not to remain dormant inside of you. Now is the time to Change the World. Make an impact.
Stop sitting on the sidelines and do what God has called you to do. If you do not know what it is that God has called you to do, ASK Him.
Yes it is time to Change the World!
If you really need more encouragement read about Mariam Ibraheem who refused to denounce Christ. She was willing to die for her faith but God had a plan for her and her family.
Yes it is time to Change the World! Take what God has given to you and use it.
