Jeremiah was a prophet during the time when Israel came under siege by the King of Babylon. Jeremiah faced prosecution because he often prophesied contrary to what the King felt that he should prophecy. Jeremiah prayed to God often for understanding regarding some of the revelations which he had concerning his people.
God renews His covenant to Jeremiah concerning his people which he made to Abraham. God spoke of the blessings and restoration which he would bring to his people. God also promised to cleanse them of their sins and to restore joy, praise and glory so that people would hear of all the good that he had done for them. (Jeremiah 32-33)
It is never God’s plan for us to suffer and remain afflicted. In fact his word confirms that his desire for us is prosperity and health. (3 John 1:2) God is so invested in our healing and salvation that he took on humanity, came to earth and was crucified for us. “But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)
God wants us to be healthy and prosperous and any ideas contrary to that is condemnation and false doctrines of religion. God is not out to get us and does not take pleasure in punishing us or causing us calamity because we have done wrong. He longs for us to come to him and find peace, comfort, healing and restoration.
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.
