I am a survivor of change at no fault of my own. I became what most call “a victim of circumstance” as the result of an unexpected event in my life. After years of suffering, I found myself wondering what was I to do with my life.
My experiences began to shed light reminding me that my life did not have to end there. It told me that none of this was about me but about God using me to fulfill his purpose. It showed me God had a plan to prosper and not harm me; to give me hope and a future. The experiences were all for a reason. It helped shape me into the person I am now. It gave me purpose and new passions.
Since being declared disabled eleven years ago and diagnosed with Fibromyalgia seven years ago, amongst other conditions I suffer with, I am an advocate for those who suffer with this debilitating disease. So if you see many posts on the subject, it is my way of showing support of this cause. Also please forgive me if the many posts seem overbearing. I am one voice and my desire is to share knowledge so that others can make an informed decision regarding treatment and care that they may have a greater quality of life.
With the help of God, I’ve managed to overcome the impossible. I’m a survivor. I’m still standing. I am a victor and not a victim of my circumstances!
I still have a ways to go but through it all, I refuse to give in to the enemy. Delayed is never denied. I have dreams and aspire to do many things. By God’s grace, with the help of family and friends, this too shall pass.
My greatest desire is to travel the world to share my story with others in spite of the fact my body isn’t equipped. There’s a book I wrote years ago that’s waiting to be published sometime next year. There are unique multicultural heritage designs and inspirational quotes I created that are a part of unique, personalized design products offered at my two online stores I opened two years ago http://www.jonnaydesigns.com and https://www.mkt.com/jonnay-designs/. There’s still stuff to do. I have many dreams. God is not through with me yet. Everything I am believing God for will manifest one day, just as he promised.
God has given me strength to do the impossible in spite of adversity. As such, this blog was created as a way to share inspirational poems that are random, off the top of my head along with thought-provoking messages I live and breathe daily in thought but sometimes find difficult to put on paper or keep to myself. It is a way to express myself and at the same time share my thoughts with others. At times, sharing my love of God our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with the world.
Many times I write in the same manner I speak, sometimes failing to see errors in my speech after I post. So there will be times when I re-read my post and will make corrections so that it flows…. correctly 🙂 Therefore, if you see a post and it looks different on another occasion, this is why.
I’m so new at this so please bear with me. I have several challenges which prevent me from being able to post daily or create, as well as be creative as I’d like but in time I will get the hang of this. Therefore, if my thoughts are too long and I have too much or not enough to say on one given day, please bear with me.
In the meantime, thank you for stopping by! I hope you like it. Enjoy!
Be blessed! –JD
