I greet you in the Matchless Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. It is because of Him that I live and Have my very being. It has been an adventure, and journey these past 30 plus years as I have walked with the Lord. I've have had many trials, test, and tribulations which all ended in triumph. His Word says that all things work together for good of them who love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).

I use to hate hearing saints say that God would never put more on me than I could bear, now those very same words are what gives me the strength, courage and the faith to hold on until my change comes. Because I now know that if God allows it, I can bear it.

I am so grateful that He has allowed me to walk and talk with Him. It is through love and relationship that I have chosen to accept the offer to walk as one with Him. In and of myself I am nothing and yet in Jesus I am everything I need to be. For I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me (Phil 4:13).

I pray that as you are drawn by the spirit of God to accept the call, the mission, the purpose, and the assignment given to you, that in your weakness or lack of confidence, you will realize that God is in control. It is He who knows His plans for you. Put all your faith and trust in God and you can say reassuredly, I am, all that "I AM", says I am! May God be glorified by your living.

Because He Is, I am
