I am a living, walking, and breathing testimony that God never forgets His promises.
Four years ago, I spoke at Bishop TD Jakes Church, Potter’s House. You can listen to my talk here. After I spoke to their 20-something’s ministry Brickhouse, I was introduced to Pastor Rafael Castillo at Christ Tabernacle in New York via email/phone. I knew then God would bring me to NYC to meet him and visit their church one day.
Four years later, we finally meet!!!!
But that’s not even the whole story. Back in January, Ralph emailed me and asked if we could chat that day. Something was stirring in my spirit, and I knew whatever he wanted to talk about would eventually bring me to Christ Tab!
I had no idea that Maria Durso, co-pastor with her husband Michael Durso of Christ Tabernacle had just went through an ordeal with her publisher. That her book would no longer be traditionally published, and they weren’t sure what to do.
I told them about my story with NavPress, and how they had canceled my contract the day I turned in my second book. I told them that I understood and knew how it felt.
Then I went on to share that the self publishing market has changed dramatically, and if they wanted my help–I could help Maria self publish her first book.
Here we are, not even two months later, and From Your Head to Your Heart is now on Amazon! While I was with everyone in NY, her book was #1 on Amazon in her category.
I’ve never felt more loved and accepted in a church as I felt this past weekend.
As you know, the past few years without a church home has been incredibly difficult. I felt like God made it all up to me in a single weekend.
New York, I will be back!
God never forgets His promises, and is faithful to all He has made!
Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the Lord your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed (Joshua 23:14, NIV).
