Inspiration and Faith

God has a plan and a purpose for your life! You are not here by accident! You are fearfully and wonderfully made by a Creator who loves you madly. My faith in Jesus Christ has been the rock and foundation that has helped me through both the highs and lows of life, and my faith journey is exactly that. A journey. Some days I am filled with fire and passion for my King, and other days I feel as though I am simply putting one foot in front of the other. But, no matter where we are in this journey His promises are always true!  

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you plans to give you hope and a future.”   

Jeremiah 29:11
