It's About Time...

     I feel very compelled in my spirit right now. My book has come to a halting stop. The logistics of formatting a book is very overwhelming. Yet I feel an urgency to share  my story in hopes of helping others in the recovery process.  I have been doing research tonight. I joined NAMI tonight. It stands for the national association of mental Illness. and they have a group in greenwood mississippi which is 30 miles from where I live. I feel like God has a faith based ministry for me. Im not talking about going to church, I am talking about taking a stand and letting my voice be heard. I have overcome so much since my first breakdown at 22 years old.

     I am not saying that I am 100 percent healed or cured, I still have to take my daily dose of medication.  I do not feel medicated. If anything I feel passionate about what I have been through to help others in the process of getting their lives back. I have been retired from the workforce since 2002 and I don't see that changing anytime soon. I don't see me going back into the workforce and starting all over again at ground zero!!!

     I dont think I am in a season of waiting but a season to stand up and do what God has called me to do!  Have you ever felt like that? A urgency to get on the ball and get going!!!  I feel a call to the pastor transpiring very soon. That is my first step in the right direction I believe.

I will keep you posted....I will still publish my book. but I feel 67 pages is a good finish for my first book! I may have to pay to get it formatted the way I want it to look. I am not looking to rack in the bucks but to get my story out there so that it can help others.

Can I ask you to say some prayers for me please? I want to obey God and not man.  Tommorrow may be too late!!!


Happy Trails,
Richard

He arose from the Grave!!


It happened in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized in the Jordan by John. 

On coming up out of the water he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit, like a dove, descending upon him. 
And a voice came from the heavens, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”
Mark 1:9-11




Romans 1:3-5 (NKJV)

3 concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, 4 and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. 5 Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name,





Romans 6:4-10 (NKJV)

4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

5 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, 6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. 7 For he who has died has been freed from sin. 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.

Romans 15:13 (NKJV)

 Happy resurrection Sunday!  
Today we celebrate Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead.  
RESURRECTION POWER FILL US THIS HOUR!!!

Update

I have some great news for you that are committed to reading my blog.  I am in the process of writing a book using my autobiography and popular posts in my blogs. In fact, I have 50 pages so far and 12 chapters!  

It looks like the topic will be spiritual warfare (deliverance) and mental health using the name of this blog as the title of the book.

As far as publishing goes I am undecided at this point.  That is where I really need your prayers. I am not too familiar with formatting my word processor correctly to go to a publisher. There may be some money involved to get that done. One company is CreateSpace.com   

For now I am concentrating my time and energy on the book more than blogging. I never dreamed that this would finally be happening. I know the Lord has guided me here and this will probably be the beginning of my ministry that I have waited to come into fruition for so long.

Thank you all and God Bless! I will keep you all updated.  I know the Lord is going to move swiftly. I am believing and claiming the right doors to open as I boldly go forward with what God has calling me to do.

Maranatha!
