I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
– Maya Angelou
I love that God made me a writer. Writing has been my personal savior on more occasions than I can count. Writing allows me to focus, to make sound decisions, to express my innermost feelings, to create, to understand and to be able to touch people and teach people without even being in their presence. Writing is a powerful gift.
Throughout my short career I have had many people reach out to me about how something that I wrote changed their lives or inspired them. Just today a woman from South Carolina called me who saw my DVD Outside Myself, she expressed to me how much it touched her and that she could not stop crying by the end. She said that seeing what I went through made her think of her own kids and the experiences that shaped their lives. She encouraged me to keep going and to never give up because she said, God has placed a gift in me that must be shared with the world. This is the phone call I received today.
God continues to send me confirmation that I am on the right track. I am being patient and preparing myself for what God has for me next. I know that all the visions that he has given me will come to fruition. I know that I will be the woman who I see in my dreams in this lifetime. This will all happen in God’s time. It is already happening. That call I got today is just a piece of the glory that is coming. This power that I have been given through my words is priceless and I will handle it with care. I will take responsibility for the words that I put into the universe because I want everything I produce, every word that I write, every role that I play to be encouraging, uplifting and inspiring. I want to make sure that this gift that God has given me brings light into the world.
There is a power in words and I intend to use it wisely.
