I'm Back and I take my seat in the Gate!!

Updated: Aug 17, 2019

I HAVE to share!!!!

On 12\25\2017 (yes Christmas day) I was knocked right out of my seat by Satan himself!

What am I talking about? I got so sick that I was in the bed for over a week. I missed 2 weeks of work, some days paid and some days not paid because I ran out of time. I went from Streptococcus, sinus infection and an ear infection to pneumonia. During this time my husband's transmission went out in his truck and we decided that his truck was not worth the investment to fix.

Now we are down to one car between the 2 of us and multiple infections running through the family, to include my mom, but I was not concerned because I know God is with us. I have been dragging ever since and have very little energy to even get out of the bed and make it to my 2 jobs as well as start my new business but we are on the verge of major life changes that God has orchestrated. Of course Satan is going to show up and test us. I expect that.

Then today my car breaks down. Now shaken, I decided to take some time to myself and listen to one of my favorite pastors, Dr. Steven Furtick! I know it could be worse. I know that God is with me. I know I have VICTORY and will not allow Satan to steal my success! I am sharing the sermon I listened to tonight!

No matter what you are facing in your life, I hope join me and take your seat in the gate!

Have a blessed and balanced day!
