A spirit, a creation, a soul, a miracle, a boy, a son, a brother, a friend, a boyfriend, a lover, a man, a husband, a father, an orphan, a liar and a cheat, an adulterer , a bastard, a transgressor of sin, a dependent of alcohol & drugs, a wild olive branch a wretch lost & found, a coward, a believer, a disciple of Christ Yeshua
Like an onion I peel back every layer of my journey, who would of thought that at some point God would use my experiences to tell HIS story. In fact I will say that he is the true author of this book.
To be completely honest, becoming a disciple of Christ was never part of my plan, like Jona and the whale, I literally went running in the opposite direction. No matter how fast or how far I ran, God had his own plan and there was nothing I could do about it, but submit to his will
As an author, I can honestly say that I have definitely grown creatively within my new found role. What started off as basically a means to vent my inner emotions, has sent me on a life’s journey. Therapeutic at times but also extremely challenging, taking me back to past memories which I had long forgotten and wished to remain hidden.
I remember the first time I put pen to paper, proper old school style, l had no idea where to start, let alone creating a middle or end. I began to write about things that were important to me and stuff that I thought others would like. However during the night the Holy Spirit would instruct me, “‘No’ do not write about that, write about this,” but being the stiff-necked person that I was, I would ignore his voice.
The crazy thing was that through my disobedience, I was unable to write anything until I followed His instructions. It was as though I had writer’s block, hence why it took almost 14years to complete. It was at that point, I realized that my book had a spiritual purpose.
But the best part of my journey, I was able to find the source of my strength.
I hope you enjoy my story.
