You know, when we seek the Lord in all we do …

He speaks –

He guides. –

He confirms –

He prepares –

He provides –

He is leads in ways that just continually BLOW MY MIND! 🤯

It was almost a year ago, as I was writing what would be my last chapter of my book, I knew it was complete. I knew because I had such a supernatural encounter, His presence was enveloping me, and tears were flooding! It was a powerful moment with whispers to my heart saying; “it is finished.” Then the journey forward of editing, and book design. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Well, that’s been an interesting, and very challenging process with so much push back and blocks, my heart began to get weary.


March 5, 2019 – I asked the Holy Spirit what to do with some details and questions. He gave me Psalm 96:3, so I looked it up…

PUBLISH his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things He does.

YES! PUBLISH jumped right off the pages of my Bible, and straight to my heart, giving me the confidence to push past my fatigue, and doubt. He was speaking straight to me through His Word. 🙌🏼⚔️

Here I am today, still “in the process,” only this time with clear vision and excitement as we finalize the details to get Life is Muddy to print, as well as a very exciting announcement I will be making SOON (stay tuned)! And as I sat here in the quiet of the morning, stilling myself before our Daddy, giving Him thanks for the (messy) beauty of this journey, I randomly opened my Bible, and there it was… that same passage He had given to me to push through, now from a heart of praise!

Sing a new song to the Lord! Let the whole earth sing to the Lord! Sing to the Lord; praise his name. Each day proclaim the good news that He saves. PUBLISH His glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things He does. Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise! … Psalm 96:1-4 NLT

This journey has been HARD… BUT GOD! He has been doing things, while in the secret place, inside of me through this process that was necessary for more personal growth. The value of what He has done in me, far outweighs the idea of a smooth and perfect road. I am thankful. His timing is perfect!

And He really does use it all!

For anyone who is feeling the fatigue of the journey… press in! He is in this. He is moving. He is working out the details as He positions and prepares, taking you from glory to glory!

Eyes on Him, and trust His process. ♥️, J
