C didn't want to go into the nursery at first this morning, so she worshipped with us! I just love seeing her little hand raised to The Lord! After church she told me she had to sing a song and ran to the stage where she also wanted to play the piano! #JesusJesusJesus#futureworshipleader#singuntothelord
I went to @revthemix last night. Parents were invited to listen in on the sermon called 13 reasons. Based off the new Netflix series. It was an amazing word and the holy spirit spoke through @brandnewjeff I am so proud to be apart of a church that has such an amazing heart for people.
Also, my daughter, Andrea got to sing on stage with @revthemix worship crew! Jesus is moving in her and she has such a testimony to share. I am proud of her, so proud of her. She is a natural. Following in the families foot steps!! I love this kid. And she has proven time and time again she will not fail because Jesus is in her. Thank you Jeremy for believing in her, and her heart. #revyourlife#revthemix#futureworshipleader#highlyfavored#iwasntcryingiswear#godsmoving
Mental disabilities are a very real thing. I just so happen to have one. I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome about six years ago, and since then I've learned to live with it and accept it. Symptoms for me are obsessions with people or things, slow learning capabilities, limited eye contact with any person, missing social cues, showing few emotions, talking to myself, hating change, having difficult time meeting new people, uncoordinated and repetitive movements and hypersensitivity to sound. I first revealed my diagnosis just a few months ago after going through a difficult breakup and realizing that I need to accept who God has created me to be. He gave me the courage to tell people. And I received only love and comments like: 'I never knew'. Now knowing what the symptoms are and comparing them to me, you can understand why.
After my parents told me about my diagnosis, I was stunned and refused to believe it. I told my ex (who was just a friend at the time) and he told me to forget about it because it wasn't true. He later came to believe me, and rebuked me and stated that he feared for the children I wanted to have with him because they could turn out 'like me'. If he had told me this after we had broken up, I would have slapped him and spat in his face for saying such hurtful things to me. I was too in love with him at the time to realize that what he said was a dagger to the heart.
To any future man who wants to date me, don't use my disability against me. God made me just how He wanted to, and I don't need anybody telling me any different.
Anyways. I have accepted who I am and decided that I will use this disability to reach others like me and show them the love of Christ and worship God through it all.
And who knows? Maybe someday, I'll meet a man who also has Asperger's and loves the Lord. Maybe someday, he and I can have the family I've always dreamed of and use our disabilities to our advantage.
I hope and pray that it is so.
Here we go....9am & 11am @freechapel #generationpraise 🙌🏼 ....Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.
