At the start of 2020 there were many parallels being drawn to this year being one of 20/20 focus. Ideas were circulated about the need to remain focused and maintain a vision of what God will do in this year. That was before the global pandemic which has shut down the world, grounded flights, and created unstable economies.
Despite the challenges that this year has presented, there are also opportunities that have opened up as a result of it. Hear me out before you dismiss my suggestions as I say this with empathy. I know that there are people who have lost loved ones in this year and people who have lost jobs and businesses. While this is happening, there has been an influx of new business ventures created globally through the internet.
I believe that God is doing major things in this year and the body of Christ needs to pay careful attention so that we do not miss it. “Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:19)
None of what is happening in the world today takes God by surprise. So if he has allowed it, then we have to trust what he says in his word. “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
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.

I couldn’t agree more. Sometimes when we get a word of prophecy we limit its potential manifestation by, and to what, our finite minds can conceive. But no one knows the mind of God. It was still a year of 20/20 vision and focus . Thank God for the pandemic, it was the only way some persons got caught on the more important things…repairing their relationship with God, spending quality time with family, etc. 2020 shifted our focus to the people who truly matter.
