Greetings, beautiful people! Happy New Year! Today is the 5th day of 2019, and I pray that God has been good to you thus far, and is leading and guiding you into your purpose and His purposes FOR you in the new year! I wanted to share some thoughts with you from January 3, 2019 in hopes that you may be inspired as you set out to accomplish your personal, professional, and ministerial goals for 2019:
Much can be done in 3’s. Aspiring lawyers can earn a law degree in just three years in preparation for a career in the legal field. All of my serious relationships have lasted a maximum of three years. All of these men are very successful. I wrote my book, my first masterpiece, Happily Ever After
, in three short months. I took a short break to receive direction from God during the writing process, but the actual writing took three months. Unbelievable, right? All God. At the time of the book writing, I worked a full-time job AND volunteered at a local pregnancy resource center. I commuted to work everyday from Dayton, Ohio to Columbus, Ohio – and came home everyday to write the book until it was finished. The publishing process, and finding and working with a graphic designer (who I still praise God for), was the longest part of the process. I wrote my first literary work Family Ties
(never published) in three weeks. It took Oprah Winfrey and her network three months (while I was away from social media) to mimic my ministry and my gifts and talents – and begin production on the following shows (mentioned): #LoveIs
. Still saddens me. But, God is kind. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was THIRTY years old when He began his full-time ministry, then flipped the world on its back in just THREE short but very fulfilling years. Then He left. He (Jesus) gave up His body, and died and rose for the sins of all mankind – all in THREE days. Christ, the husband, and the wife represent a God-honoring marriage. We see oneness (the Trinitarian doctrine, a foundational truth to the Christian faith) between God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (three in one, the Holy Trinity). Many pastors deliver messages of God with three points. Three-piece suits are appealing, lol. Rock, paper, scissors is a fun & very well-known game! What does the number three (3) personally mean to you? I encourage you to take some time to reflect on this tonight with ministry partners, friends, and family! In other news, WordPress has told me (today) that in the past week, my ministry site and blog Love Is A Lifestyle has received LOTS of traffic! Thank you to my faithful subscribers, and thank you to the new persons who stopped by. I pray you were blessed!
