Pre-COVID-19, I was in a space of self-reflection. Heck, I’m always in a space of self-reflection - there are a lot of mirrors in my home. But this time my self reflection was centered around my purpose. I had been talking to GOD about my place on earth. I asked GOD if I was placed here to be a Mother, Daughter, Sister, Friend - or Shopaholic, cause you know I am stimulating the economy. Maybe a Small Business Queen (Yaaasss Queens) - postured in educating minority and women owned businesses. I said, “GOD, let your will be done.” Well Suga, let me tell you...be careful what you pray for. When GOD is ready for you to move, you better be well rested and equipped for his adventure. Now, I’m a Sagittarius so I’m always on an adventure. But this adventure - this journey required focus, discipline and obedience.
I want to focus on the word obedience; compliance with an order, request, law or submission to another's authority.
God directed me to pray over Deuteronomy 11:26-28 “Look, today I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse! 27 You will be blessed if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today. 28 But you will be cursed if you reject the commands of the Lord your God and turn away from him and worship gods you have not known before.
Now, I am not here to preach to you - because my life is not perfect. Progressive, yes. Perfect, absolutely not. What I am going to do here is testify - testify about my blessings. I asked the Lord to posture me in my purpose. You want to know what he did? He moved my fingers, engaged my thoughts and helped me to write a book.
Yaaasss! I wrote a novel. A fictional love story that explores love, friendship, spirituality, romance, and passion. Decisions framed upon obedience, jealousy, drama and deceit
Oh my! I wrote a novel called “Black Licorice”. Now I told you God was showing off.
