Okay, so I got out of a bad relationship about a year ago. As I was going through the healing process, or shall I say praying and connecting to my Creator process, the idea of beginning Dreamer En Route slowly crept its’ way in my mind. At the time, I was really angry with myself for choosing to stay in an abusive relationship. I was also very much hurt and emotionally broken. And I needed to heal. Heal fast. So I prayed relentlessly. All my thoughts were focused on God and Jesus. And I chose to believe in God’s love for me with all my heart. I believed in His promises. And during the process I found answers. I found purpose. At first the answers seemed incorrect. They seemed to be the total opposite of what I had in mind for myself. But I listened, nonetheless. I gave it try. I mean, what did I have to lose.
God told me, “Don’t be slowful, your ministry is waiting on you.” I definitely didn’t know what that meant at the time. I also figured I wasn’t destined to be part of the renowned clergy. But still, I listened nonetheless. And I redefined my perspective of ministry away from your standard church space. My ministry was anyone who has been silenced, or kept quiet or pretending to be someone they are not in order to fit in, to belong. Anyone who felt alone growing up and was searching for love and acceptance. I wanted these people to know you don’t have to think that way. You don’t have to feel that way. And, you definitely do not have to define your life with these negative limitations. When people say anything is possible….. I know it’s cliche, but it really is possible if you combine passion, work ethic and faith. True story.
