Life is sometimes full of ups and downs and defined by mountain top and valley experiences. When we put our trust in God we shall be like Mount Zion that cannot be removed, but abides forever. (Psalm 125:1) Mount Zion represents the mountain of God which is firmly fixed and cannot be brought down by any natural disasters or human invasions.
We know that the angels of the Lord surround those who fear him and delivers us. (Psalm 34:7) So when we are afraid we trust in our God to offer protection and deliverance. Fear is not of God and that spirit does not come from him. Instead he gives us power, love and a sound mind. Our enemy wants us to live in fear and torment and carry a burden of guilt and shame.
God replaces the ashes of grief with beauty; he gives us the oil of joy when we mourn and a garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness that we might be trees of righteousness planted by the Lord so that his glory might be seen in us. (Isaiah 61:3)
God cares about our wellbeing and it is the lies from the devil that tries to convince us otherwise. God cannot be tempted of evil and he takes no pleasure in the death of sinners but wants everyone to repent and live in him. It is sin that separates us from God and keeps us in bondage and torment. God offers freedom and protection and joy and peace that can only be found in him.
He will not let your foot slip, he who watches over you will not slumber; (Psalm 121:3)
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.
