The year of 2017 was a remarkable year for me. I was led by the Lord to become a public speaker. I’ve never been a shy person and I’ve spoken many times, sometimes to quite large audiences, but it had been more than twenty years since I’d spoken.
Still, I followed where I was led and started on the path of speaking. I wanted to share my joy with the world. I wanted to teach everyone how to have unshakeable joy no matter what their current situation. I was given a process to overcome any trauma and stress and I wanted to share that with the world. And so, off I went.
I traveled across the country teaching people about joy. I tried to teach them that God was real, but I was careful to not step on anyone’s belief system by telling them that they could just believe in the Universe, or the light of love. I was very careful not to mention Jesus’ name, so that I wouldn’t offend anyone. I was told by some business coaches that this was the what I needed to do if I wanted to be successful. But I take full responsibility for following that advice.
By December of 2018 I had traveled all over the country and had spoken at over forty-eight events. You might call it a successful first year, yet I didn't feel successful. I spoke about God, about joy, about overcoming trauma, about finding joy, and about becoming the best you can be. Like I said, I was careful not to speak about Jesus, or politics. In essence, I was lukewarm. I was sitting on the fence which led me to feel dishonest and restless. I felt like something was missing.
Luckily, I was sick and I hurt my back. Lucky, yes, because two bouts of the dreaded flu, a back injury that wasn’t going away, bronchitis and pneumonia gave me time to sit and meditate and pray and think and contemplate and figure out what I needed to do. It gave me time to regroup and it brought me to several conclusions.
I was dissatisfied because I was sitting on the fence.
I was denying Jesus, afraid to speak to His name.
I had always hated the political correctness stuff because of the dishonesty and the assault on the 1st Amendment.
The end-times that are prophesied in the bible and in other works are definitely here.
I had a mission to fulfil and it was time to be true to myself.
I needed to overcome my fears and tell it like it is. And so it begins.
So much more to come. This is only the first post. I’ve been making a post per day on Facebook, one for each day of 2018 with messages that I’ve been led to share. I have also begun posting those messages on my website Message a Day photo gallery.
