Silence

“Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken. My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me. O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge. Interlude”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭62:5-8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  • His silence
  • My silence
  • He is my strength
  • Silence is strength

I had started to write for sometime now and then I’m suddenly stopped, but God why …. What is it… why? Trust in me is all I kept hearing. But Abba I have something to share. Not now I said, but …. Not now I said.

Not sure if anyone has experienced this before. I was to the point of feeling disconnected with myself. Writing is an amazing therapy for me. I’m able to freely express myself and come back and read it over and over to the point of understanding an in-depth revelation as to why my spirit had released it in me to express. These past few weeks after loosing my job I have felt God putting a stop on many different things and writing is just one.

Right now it’s 2:36am Christmas Eve day and He has given me the permission to write. Well where do I begin… it’s been a challenging few weeks I mean really who expects to loose their job a couple of weeks before Christmas… no one! I must say many different projects have come that if I where working I would not be able to keep up. So God has a way of doing things.

God bestowed upon me 501c3 non profit organization which is the Orlando Dream Center that has been running for a little over four years. Many have wanted to run alongside or better said asked for me to place it under there covering but little did I know when God launched me out to start this non profit it was for me to run as a “Parachurch”. It was never intended to be under anyone. It needed to have its own identity and it would be used to strengthen churches. Can I be honest …. I did not know this until a few weeks ago!

Amazing…… I know…. truly what silence can reveal.

The lord had me praying with my team for a number of pastors in the local community and for leaders as well as those of influence in the community and again I did not understand the why but we moved in obedience. A week prior to Thanksgiving a Pastor calls me and says I would like to donate turkey meals to your organization and I would like my church members to serve at your event. For me it was too good to be true. You just don’t see that in this neck of the woods!

Well we the team of ODC said absolutely yes, we would love if you joined. The event was amazing…. wait let me

go back… Won’t God do it! Did you know we are serving in an Orange County Government Building! The city officials have opened their doors for us. Won’t God do it! I have to say it over and over. For this to take place you know God is moving in this City. Back to the event that was absolutely amazing. God showed up and over 300plus had a Thanksgiving Meal. Won’t God do it… Glory be to God!

Shortly, after we get a call from another Pastor. He states “I have heard about you want to meet you”. We make arrangements and meet and truly the Lord had prepared the way. Beautiful man and women of God just placed her few months ago from California asking for help we said absolutely we are all in. It was amazing especially being that we had planted and Pastored a church for about three and a half years, we truly understood there burden. We where all about helping them. Once we where presented to their team opposition raised. We had to step away as the Lord stepped back. Just like that we heard God say “I’m not with them”.

About two weeks maybe three another amazing opportunity from the Lord to connect with another Pastor and His ministry which we are honored to embrace and run along side with as well.

Won’t God do it…. This past week we had an event where two church’s worked together unified and showed love like never before to their community.

Truly only God can do this.

Why am I sharing this..there is a time for everything!

Had I not learned self discipline to knowing when and where I would have been the one to step in and hinder the perfect plans of God. When I can obey I am able to see that ultimately He leads the way. I have to learn to refuse to disobey and understand that He is requiring I be obedient and listen to His every word. If He says No it’s No!

The scripture could have not said it more perfect

“Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken. My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me. O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge. Interlude”
