God has always been with me, I felt His aura over me when I was baptized at 12 years old, at that time I did not understand that it was His presence. God granted me my vocation of nursing, where I was able to minister to patients, families, and staff. I am most grateful that Jesus heard my cries and brought me out of the miry waters of sin and alcohol. I have been through many trials and God has brought me through and protected me from all harm, He has provided me with mental, physical, and spiritual healing. I can truthfully say I have not lacked for anything. I am thankful for my intimate relationship with Jesus for because of Him I have a personal relationship with God and His indwelling Spirit. I am thankful for the spiritual gifts of giving, love for all people, and the ability to write poetry and other biblical inspirations. He has also given me the gift of spiritual leadership and the ministry of reconciliation with the purpose of advancing the kingdom of God and preparing God’s people for the return of Jesus through the truth of His Word. I now understand the fullness of His presence. All I can say is thank you Father and continue to help me fulfill your will and good purpose (Philippians 2:13, NIV).
