“Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!” Psalms 27:14 NKJV It’s such an amazing feeling when God answers your prayers!!! Sometimes we may feel discouraged and alone, and simply want to give up on our promises from God. Other times it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen and you begin to question whether God has forgotten you and the promises He made you? “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9 NKJV I’m here today to remind everyone that “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. If God said it, it SHALL come to pass!!! It is important for us to continue to keep the FAITH, no matter how the situation may look, some people will try to discourage you along the way and some will give up on you, but it’s very important for YOU to not give up on YOUR dreams. Continue to fight the good fight, for without FAITH it is IMPOSSIBLE to please Him. I would also love to add that whatever God does is “WELL DONE”. He makes no mistakes….The Wait, The Hurt, The Disappointments, The Betrayal, Not Having The Finances, Being Laughed At and Feeling Lonely was ALL NECESSARY!!! Sometimes all of these things and more has to take place for us to find ourselves, our strength and our purpose. Everyone has a purpose on earth that has to be fulfilled, and it’s up to us to find our purpose. If you’re passionate about something, Pray on it and if God says Yes, go at it Wholeheartedly. For His promises are sure, His Promises are Yay, Nay and Amen. I don’t care how long it takes, keep the Faith…God is a Promise Keeper!!! ALL thanks and praise to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for reassuring me that He keeps His promises Always, and for always reminding me that my Faith and prayers can change Anything. I serve a God that specializes in the Impossible!!!! To my parents Shaun Sr and Mabelene Miller and siblings Shaunae, Shaun Jr and Shaunece Miller, thank you for being such an amazing support system and always being there for me when I’m in need. I am the woman I am today because I have God
