Whew! It’s been a little bit more than 2 years since I realized God had given me the gift to write professionally. I have to admit, this was something I didn’t realize that was a gift from God. Although I have always been a writer, I never thought to write professionally. After I started to write for the New Orleans Tribune around that time, doors really started to open up. From there, I have had the pleasure to write for Jet Magazine, Fox Business and Bankrate.com, just to name a few.
More importantly, this whole process has been a true gift from God. Years ago, when I started working for Dillard University, I never imagined the impact I would have there or how my career would really begin to move. I never would have envisioned that I would be able to do something I love and actually get paid for it. But guess what, God is in the business of giving us the desires of our heart.
Additionally, I have been truly blessed to be able to share my gift of writing with so many people. I am so elated that I have allowed God to lead me and give me the words to complete my very first book two years ago, 21 Days of Powerful Breakthroughs. This has been a blessing and has received more than 30,000 downloads monthly on YouVersion Bible App!
So, with all that being said, as I took a walk this morning I asked God, “What you want me to do today?” (The same question I asked every day. I am glad God has not started to ignore me!) I feel led that I need to help someone reach their financial goal, their vision or just a little help on the way.
As I read over my journal thoughts this morning, I realized I didn’t start this blog or my writing for my own sake, but I asked God to let this be my ministry – to help others. And while sometimes I don’t have the time to write or simply being obedient to God by not using my gift, I need to be a good steward over what He has blessed me with!
So as my way of saying thank you for even allowing me to share my thoughts with you, I hope I am able to bless someone with $100. While it isn’t much and no, it may not be able to pay off a credit card bill, I am certain it can help with something!
Drop me a line by email and let me know how this could really help you! Email Kemwashcpa@gmail.com by July 7, 2014 at 5p.m.
