A Place Where Danyelle shares her heart and mind.
For the life of me, I could not tell you how afraid I was to step out on faith concerning my book ministry. I was totally relying on my sister/friend whom I just happen to call “Twin”, to hold my hand and walk with me the entire way. Well, on last evening God began to deal with me concerning trusting Him for everything.
I said, “Lord, why is it that I can trust you for my ministry concerning where I should go, what I should preach, what I should say in prophecy, but I cannot seem to muster up enough strength to trust you to show me which way to go concerning my books? Then God said, “Danyelle, you have always felt like you were alone, and the only way to curve this feeling was to invite people in. There were times when you did not even desire to go to the bathroom by yourself.” I smirked at hearing this because He knew. I would go constipated for days because I could not stand the thought of being alone in a bathroom. Then I discovered the art of taking the Lord and disciples in with me when I could find no one else. Meaning, I prayed or read my bible anytime I went to the bathroom.
Then I asked, “Lord, why am I like this, and I’ve been this way all of my life?” He said, “Because there was a part of you that always long for Me. I created you with this longing so that when you finally realized that I was with you, you would truly know this.” Then I said, “Well, can you teach me to walk in Holy Boldness concerning every area of my life.” And He said, “Better than that, I have even given you someone to become a help meet to, and if you would just allow him to help you, you’ll see that you will be helping him all along.”
So, here I’ve been depending on others to do what Reynard could have been helping me do all along. Then I said to my husband, “Baby, I need help with the blanket drive. I have got to get more people involved.” And he responded by saying one simple word, “Okay.” We both went to sleep and I thought, alright God you said that he was my help and all he said was okay….I don’t know. Then to my disbelief, Reynard woke up and said, “Baby, the Lord showed me in a dream how to help you with the blanket drive. I need you to draft up a letter and say this here, and then I will put it in the hands of those who will help.”
You know I almost hit the ceiling. God proved exactly what He’d shared with me, not two days later, or the following week, but in the matter of an eight hour sleep. Is not God good? Every day, He teaches me that He has everything I need in His hand and all I have to do is seek Him in and for everything I do, and trust Him. I pray that this encourages someone who always feels like they need help doing what God told them to do. Just do it, and God will send exactly who He desires to be a partaker in what He has given you to do! Be Blessed
