There is power when we speak and there is death and life in the tongue. (Proverbs 18:21) Even in the darkest of circumstances when we speak the word it brings life to light our way.
The Psalmist declared that the word of God is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. (Psalm 119:105) The word gives direction and even when we cannot see a way out of the darkest places, there is an answer in the word of God.
Trials and challenges will cause our minds to be bombarded with negative thinking. We learn to speak things that do not already exist as if they have already happened and watch our words manifest into reality.
We are what we believe and words spoken over us from as early as childhood often form our identity. Jesus died to give us a new identity and we can speak his words over ourselves and believe what he says about us.
As Believers and saints we have been called out of darkness into the marvellous light of God. (1 Peter 2:9) We do not have to continue to feel our way around through the darkness or become overwhelmed by the clouds of depression, fear, anxiety, guilt and worry. Our knowledge of the word of God brings life and when we speak the word over our circumstances it gives way to the light.
I am a trained Social Worker who currently provides professional leadership on a programme to support Social Work students and Newly Qualified Social Workers entering the Social Work Profession.
Born and raised in Jamaica in a Christian family where my father is an ordained Pastor and Deacon who has served for over 50 years in the ministry. My father is also a trained musician and our family can be described as a musical family. I grew up in a small farming community in St. Peter’s, St. Andrew and my parents also have a small farm.
I credit my gift of writing to my father who I watched and listened to over the years as he wrote sermons, poems and other recitals in his capacity in ministry. English has always been an easy subject for me and over the years I have developed an increased interest in writing.
I am a Trainer, I sing and have a passion for worship, the spoken word and the free flow of the prophetic anointing. I am married to my best friend Andrew Christopher Young who is an advanced Musician and whose music you can find on YouTube and Facebook. I am a trained Coach and Mentor and I love experimenting with food so I love cooking. I enjoy trying cultural dishes from across the world and I view food as an entry into cultures and languages.
