The Lightbulb Effect

I always stand by the fact, that if God opened my eyes in the darkest point of my life, then He can do it for anyone else

Some people have said it was only because I was looking for an ”out” that I turned to God – and honestly – what else did I have to lose?

But, the day that the ”lightbulb” went off in my mind, there was a shift in my thinking, and my reality.

The world was different…It looked different. Felt different. I saw my circumstances differently, and yet the person that stood in front of the mirror was the same

It took me a long time to realise that God loved me at my darkest.

He loved me beyond my circumstances.

He loved me despite my life choices up until that point.

He just loved me, for me

The light that shined through the hopelessness, the uncertainty, and the fear in my life, was God’s love

I can’t explain it. I can’t describe it. Other than it was overwhelming, but once I had felt it, there was nothing else like it

Friends, there is doom and gloom everywhere in this world. Our circumstances might be full of sorrow and troubles, that you think will never end, and yet I want to encourage you to take comfort in this fact:

Although God may not take us around our troubles, if we follow Him wholeheartedly, He will always lead us safely through them

There is always light in the darkness…we just need to seek it out

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
