God is using me

It's currently 12:07 am and I am at work. Why? My inner voice keeps telling me that God is using me and where I am is exactly where I'm supposed to be. Over the course of the past two years, I have discovered the word "passion" for the very first time and now it's something I eat, sleep and breathe. Most people equate passion with the word romance but it goes so beyond that. It's being totally lost in something you enjoy and believe in and surely something you can't put a price tag on.

When I think about the word passion, I think about working on my books, making greeting cards, starting a business, helping seniors, counseling young women and organizing something (anything). I certainly don't think about my current job. The word passion in no way shape or form fits into that arena. However; the more I read the bible, the more I let go of the fact that I'm not supposed to be here. God does not make mistakes and me being here at this very moment is exactly where he wants me. Yes, I have goals and dreams outside of my current employment, but when God says so, not when I say so. As much as I'd like to change careers and as much as I feel unappreciated and unimportant I know that I am a valued employee and I do make a difference. Just ask my 2 senior friends, Rosa 92 and Gladys 82. Two women that I would not have met had God not placed me in law enforcement.

I am so very proud of you. Neicy, every time I read your work God reveals more of Himself through you. The word passion in it's many meanings can change the lives of many if allowed. As we study the Word of God we understand the true meaning of the word passion. As God sat on the throne of Grace frustrated about the state of His people had decided to wipe the earth clean once again. Oh, but Christ stepped up and said "Father, I will go!" Christ gave up His deity to come to this rotten earth and save a rotten people. Christ's PASSION was so profound for His people that when you stop to think about it how can you not want to serve Him...He served for YOU! So, Neicy your desire to help young and senior women and your Passion for poetry, books, greeting cards and the like, comes from the Passion Christ desies for all of us to have, "the PASSION to live and love!" You my sister have come full circle from the struggles of this life, you were once that catapillar being moded and shape and now Neicy you have emerged with colors of the rainbow and I say to this..."Fly On beautiful BUTTERFLY...fore you radiate from the inside out God Passion! Go now and brighten the lives of MANY!

Peace and Blessings,
Your Forever Sister

Stacey of all my sister-friends, I fell asleep with you in mind last night. Through my struggles over the past couple of years, three women in particular helped me through my divorce. You were in deed one of them. Angie and Mary were the other two. Because God placed me in headquarters (a place where the energy is so negative and so ego filled) I managed to befriend you. I was not always on this spirtiual journey however; meeting you sparked something in me that slowly evolved into the woman I am now. You are so grounded in your faith and that is something I aspire to be. Your loved ones are so very blessed to have you and one particular person in between has a true treasure for life. Keep building up my faith and my confidence because I need all the support I can get. I'm not ashamed to say that we need one another and I can not reach my fullest potential through my own efforts. I love and cherish you and look forward to reading "your book". God tells me to use the people he has placed in my life and stop trying to be so independent. I am using your friendship to help towards my growth and personal development. Which in turn will make me a better mom, daughter, sister, friend and human being.

The words you wrote comes from your heart and soul. I see that God is touching your spirit, "doesn't it feel good". and moving you in a direction that has so many purposes. The beauty of your words can only come from where you been to where you are going down this road of life. With the Lord by your side, I know that everyday is a blessing and it's wonderful to share that feeling of love with who ever we come in contact with. So keep praying, and keep faith for the things not seen, because I know how much you are Loved!

Girl I tried to respond to your articles but apparently I am not doing something right. You are truly amazing!!! You need to start your own talk show (smile). I think what you are doing is absolutely great. You are truly inspirational to others to share your experience whether it is good or bad with people in a way that it will have a positive impact. The passion for God, love, and life that you have is truly a blessing. I believe when you choose God first, he will prepare you for your life partner if it is his will. All things are possible through Christ. I am learning to ask God to prepare me and lead me to my purpose in life. God is an awesome God and he has never failed me nor forsaken me. You are on your way to bigger and better things in life just keep the faith and hold on to God’s unchanging hand. He is smiling and preparing you as you move to another level. I am so proud to be your friend and to be a part of what is about to magnificently happen in your life. The wonderful things that you have done for others are like planting a seed. You reap what you sow. Therefore, all the wonderful seeds you have sowed are about to blossom in your life. It is harvest time!! So reap the harvest God has promised you because you have already took back the things the devil has stolen.

God Bless You Sgt. Neicy

Love Always,

Mary, thank you so very much for the beautifully spoken words. Through God's grace we both have overcome some difficulties in our lives. AND STILL WE RISE! God knows exactly where to put his people. That's why the little corner was so powerful. With Ms. G's wisdom, your spirituality and my creativity we were unstoppable. Why do you think everybody was in and out of that office like it was a tourist attraction? We attract what we are and they wanted some of what we have. ;-) Once we realize that God has a unique plan for each of us the storms in life seem so minute compared to the bigger picture. Keep loving and supporting me because I feed off your energy. I know in you I have a friend for life. Whoever meets their prince first, ask him if he has a brother ;-)
