Doing the Lords work has always been deep in my bones. I felt the unction of the Spirit
early in life. Nevertheless, like Samuel I did not yet understand it and was afraid to tell
or ask anyone for fear of being ridiculed. However, the Lord God always shows by
revelation, what path one is to follow, as he keeps his hand upon us, protecting and
guiding us to where we are supposed to be. Amen! Thank God.  I have learned that God
truly controls everything in his own time and own way, for his own purpose. Glory to God!
John 10:15

As the Father
knoweth me,
even so know I
the Father and I
lay down my life
for the sheep.
