Well it’s Friday and I’m really looking forward to the weekend.
Tonight Pastor Jamal Bryant, founder of Baltimore’s Empowerment Temple and author of new book World War Me will be here in Jacksonville for 1st Fridays Jax, which is sponsored by Millennium Masters founded my good friend and ministry mentor Pastor B. Dwayne Hardin of Atlanta. We’ll be at Bethel Baptist Institutional Church where Bishop Rudolph McKissick is Sr. Pastor.
Should be a fun night!
In the midst of pushing through an unexpected divorce, I thank God that He’s always given me the grace to continue to minister to His people.
That always gives me joy.
Sometimes, I also find joy in just “chillin” and doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! You know? No deadlines, no meetings, no church ..NOTHING!
What kind of things give you joy?
Are you still taking time out to do them?
I hope so!
In 2010, I have strengthened my commitment to be instant in season and to minister to the hearts of those who are hurting. As a former broadcast journalist, I was accustomed to reporting the story but God now calls me to tell my story.
For 2010, my main keynote is “7 Key Strategies To Overcoming Crisis.” It is a message that has resonated with many people and that offers practical God-inspired steps to WINNING through a crisis, like a “Christian Divorce” I am humbled that God has called me to speak from experience of how He has led me through this recent unexpected crisis to a steady place in the midst of the storm, which is detailed in my upcoming book, “Life Interrupted.”
So often when you go through a divorce, we hear of stories where “divorcees” particularly women, seem to just lose their lives, their joy and livelihood, in the midst and after a divorce.
Especially when it is unexpected and unwanted.
That’s why it’s so important for us to have and find great support systems.
And as many of us have experienced, that support system is lacking more than one would hope and expect, within Christendom.
Now as word gets out about my “new” ministry and as my great friends and colleagues provide connections, I’m running across all kinds of terrific resources. One of those that was forwarded to me yesterday is FirstWivesWorld.com
I know, I know. Sounds like a movie, huh?
I checked it out and really believe it’s pretty cool and a well planned out online community, that’s NOT about “bashing men” or ex-husbands.
It’s about providing hope, guidance and helping others regain their lives back! It’s also been featured within the national media as well.
I like it. It made me smile and I’m glad to be able to share a slice of my life, through this blog too. So, be sure to check it out.
Enjoy your weekend and never forget, take time out for YOU!
How do you plan to take time out for you this weekend?
How challenging has it been for you to TAKE CARE OF YOU, during your crisis?
