I Am Somebody

 

God has many names.  There are two of them that became my favorites early on.  One was “The Ancient of Days” and I think my most favorite is “I Am”.  God knows exactly who He is whether we like it or not.  Recently the question was posed to me  who I thought I was or what did I call myself in order to have this ministry.  Well, in the eyes of the world I am not anybody special, but to God, ‘I am Somebody’.  I am just like you.  I get up everyday to face life before me and whatever comes my way, but I KNOW who is telling me to do it and more importantly, I know who is behind me if I am obedient…but it took me a long time to know I was loved unconditionally.  I don’t want you to have to wait that long… 

 

I learned about God quite innocently.  I had no idea what I would find.  I didn’t set out to have this ministry but the more I walked with God and the more I learned about Him and His ways, the more He revealed to me His plan.  I still have no idea the whole ball of wax.  I am walking this walk with the Lord solely by faith.  It is not as though I have gone to college to get a degree to do this and am making a salary with a retirement plan.  I do have years of time spent with the greatest Master of them all. Recently I told a Pastor friend of mine that the only thing that really bothers me in my flesh is not having a degree.  Sometimes the comfort of having a salary, benefits, etc., can pull on me, yet I know through prayers at this moment in time, I am not to get one…but who knows what is up ahead?  By doing this through faith alone, I have been taught to lean on God for everything, from new tennis shoes to a new laptop, which allows me to produce videos so others can learn about how BIG God truly is. I have told God for years that if people only knew what He had done for me and what was available to them, they would all be fighting to get to the Cross.

 

God wants me to be a living example to you.  You can think you are nothing because of what people have said about you.  In the eyes of the world you might be nothing, but the eyes of Heaven see something different.  Knowing who you are in Christ can get you on the path you were destined to be on since the beginning of time.  You can still be a winner...even when the world calls you crazy.  You have a divine purpose to fulfill just like I do.  He has made it crystal clear that I am not like anyone out there and I have to have the confidence to believe in who He says I am and what He is calling me to…but it isn’t easy.  Unfortunately, there will always be people who make you feel less than…and we all are supposed to be God’s children.  Your purpose, your path is just waiting for you…but you have to be the one to go get it.  All the fads of new or old teachings won’t do what God can do for you…but you have to want something more than you have right now.  The MORE of God is what I have discovered along the way…

 

He saw my hurts, pains, frustrations and great sin and still forgave me….which is a miracle in and of itself.  He has called me to be transparent with my life to let you know that if He has forgiven me, He will forgive you.  There is a woman in the Bible named Mary Magdalene.  She had seven demons in her that God delivered her from.  I have told God many times that I think I had twice as many as she ever did.   

 

YOU are somebody.  God wants you to know that.  You don’t have to settle for defeat in your life.  It is never too late to turn things around but now is the time.  All you have to do is cry out to the ONLY one who can set your life on a higher ground.  Don’t pay any attention to what others say about you…Lift up your voice to THE ONE who is “I AM.”  God is the same (thank God) yesterday, today and forever and as long as He is on the throne, you have hope…not just a chance that your life can be better.

 

From someone who felt like no one until “I AM” came along……………

God Bless you.

…And remember YOU ARE SOMEBODY!
