"A Spotlight" Presentation
I can only say that The Wind Chimes of Life is a spiritual gift from the Holy Spirit because I did not know that my diary, a.k.a. "survival journal", was destined to be a book.
I was in a difficult and transitional place in my life, (as were many others close to me), and as The Holy Spirit prompted me I wrote down on paper what was on my heart.
It was an "emptying out" experience for me. All the emotions and feelings that I could not or did not express to anyone were poured out on paper. As I wrote I was very honest with my words and thoughts because I did not expect anyone to read them.
Throughout my journal writing, I kept seeking words of wisdom from God to help me navigate through the issues, moment in time experiences and emotions; and the soul searching of my conscious.
Then, it happened! The Holy Spirit quietly revealed to me that what I had written was a book to be shared with others because I wrote about life; and everyone could relate to what was on the pages of my heart.
I hesitated at first, but then through prayer became bold with faith and determination.
Once I made the commitment to follow-through, The Holy Spirit put everything in place
for the spiritual delivery of The Wind Chimes of Life; a heart-filled birth of encouragement and inspiration from me to you.
Job 38:1 (TLB) “Then the LORD answered Job from the whirlwind.”
Have you ever been betrayed, bullied or slandered?
Yes, yes and yes; I have certainly had these experiences in my personal life!
And, since this infamous trio, unfortunately, is intertwined in the fabric of this world's lack of kindness, I know that many of you have experienced the same.
It Hurts - when you are ostracized by those that you care about; or do not "fit in" with your peers and feel left out and marginalized; deemed an outcast by society's social class "in-crowd."
Betrayal, bullying and slandering are among the arsenal of tools that the enemy uses
to try and destroy your self-esteem and steal personal virtue; discourage and frustrate you; and even control your existence with intimidation's fear and seclusion's silence.
It is human nature to want to be liked, loved and accepted, however, it is more important to not allow any assault of the enemy to hinder your walk with Lord Jesus Christ.
Although, bullying is no respecter of person, age, family nor stage or position in life; and betrayal, slander and gossip are gang-style collaborators, none of it can stand against
Lord God Almighty because He handles it all on His Terms of Righteousness!
The love of GOD never changes!
He Still sees, knows and cares!
Deuteronomy 3:22 (NIV)
"Do not be afraid of them; the LORD your God himself will fight for you."
