I’ve never aspired to be a writer. It was never in my plan. This calling came to me while I was seeking out the Lord during my time of intimacy and prayer. I’ve been chosen by God to write about my experiences and to share with others the deep relationship I have with Jesus so that many more may come to know him in this way. Honestly, as a follower of Jesus I can’t help but share my joy and passion for him, it just comes gushing out of me naturally. It’s hard to not talk about the person you love. Many of the poems I post on this blog are straight downloads from the Lord. I can’t take credit for what is written, but I will say that I’m a good listener. I tell people all the time, “I’m not a great writer, but I take good dictation.”
I absolutely love photography as well. It started out as my hobby years ago and as I began to self-educate, I started getting asked over and over to take people’s portraits. So for the past seven years I turned my hobby into a business and really enjoyed helping people capture beautiful moments in their life. Recently though, I’ve felt a strong pulling on my heart to set aside my business and pursue working on my writing and letting photography remain a hobby. There is a time and a season for everything and right now the Lord is calling me back into a season of pouring out what He’s poured into me. It is my prayer that as you read the things I post, that you will be inspired, encouraged, and lifted up to see things as you may have never seen them before; to see things from the Father’s perspective. God is so good and he loves us so much!
