Writing has always been a means of therapy for me. Growing up in a small secluded area in the deep south (boonies), there wasn't many things I could get into. My parents religiously went to church for what seemed to be all day. If the church doors were opened (and they usually had a key) we were there. During the weekdays we went to school, came home and went to church. On the weekends, it was just church. I didn't go to many parties or hangout spots and I didn’t have many friends. So communication was a struggle for me; I kept everything bottled up inside. But I was in the church choir and I LOVED to sing. I jumped at every opportunity to sing. So I found myself singing and writing often. It was the only way I could remain sane from the things I faced on a daily basis. Writing and singing became my best friends. It was the only outlet I had. To this day, it is the thing that I would do three o’clock in the morning without pay. It is my passion...
As I reflect back on my childhood, I am reminded of the story of David. David grew up in his father's pasture tending to his father's sheep. It's amazing, those same lessons he learned in his father's pasture help prepare him for his position later in life as king. David is one of the most prominent and memorable rulers of all time. David wrote almost half of the book of Psalms. The book of Psalms is a collection of poems, prayers, hymns etc. comprised together with music. This book along with the Song of Solomon does a wonderful job of capturing every emotion of humanity in its book.
One of the assignments I believe God has called me to fulfill on earth is encouraging others to walk in their God- given purpose. One of the saddest things for me to see is people going through identity crisis. Some people go their entire lives not knowing who they are, what they have been called to do, and walking in that calling. The saying, “if you don’t build your dream, someone will hire you to build theirs,” is true. People work their entire lives to attain wealth and success, however, they haven't scratch the surface of what they have been placed on this earth to do.
I love coming into contact with people who are passionate about what they do. That’s the essence of The Psalms and the Song of Solomon Show (PS3)- people sharing stories of how they overcame challenges and obstacles in life to walk in purpose. These are the stories of business owners, entrepreneurs, singers, musicians, authors, photographers, educators, cancer survivors, fitness trainers, fashion consultants, etc of all walks of life with a mission and purpose. I’m inspired to know so many who are taking/have taken steps of faith and are walking into their destiny.
I’m so excited about PS3 and the opportunity to share these stories to the world in hopes that it will also inspire and empower others to discover their purpose. It is my prayer that it will not only encourage but provoke people to change and walk out their assignments on earth. PS3 will launch Summer 2014!!!!
