When I was 7 years old I was born again! Five years later, the Lord filled me with His Holy Spirit and called me out to serve in full time service in the ministry. My heart is missions and a longing to love people into God's Kingdom.
I love to teach God's Word, pray with people and write. 
Soon, we are hoping our Jesus opens amazing doors to walk into mission endeavors.

Instead of Tragedy
 by Daneille Gray Snowden
When it's the darkest, is when we shine the brightest. Hard to swallow, yet still a commanding reality to grasp.
What is you life story? Are there chapters of tragedy and long valley's? Does it have pages flooded with peaks of amazing, joyous times? All of us have many words to write that include both extremes of defeat and triumphs. As I have written many times in this blog, it's WHO WE ARE and WHOSE WE ARE in the midst of both. It is WHO we glorify, and WHO we run to, isn't it?
If you have followed my testimony, then you have read in my own story; how I have faced poverty, sexual molestation (numerous times), poverty again (smile), loneliness, sickness, death, betrayal ...well ya get the idea. YET...I have been healed, prayed for those that have been, miraculously provided for (over and over again), have a soul mate (my husband), children (who all serve the Lord and are healthy) and get the idea.
When I am around a group of people, usually the first thing they ask is, "How is your husband feeling?" Or, "How are you guys holding up with all you are facing?" Inside this witty & a bit sarcastic mind of mine; I am thinking - "I don't want to be known for this!" People mean well, they truly do; it's what we all do; to exhibit the fact we care. Yet, I just want all to see great victory, success and beauty. Guess, that may sound a tad prideful; but hey - who doesn't feel that way: right?
My mind's eye turns to my hero; as He faced true tragedy and horrific pain, during it all not thinking of Himself and wearing a crown. [Symbols fallen humanity.] Did it glimmer and shine? No, it inflicted and was ugly. Through this tragedy, JESUS CHRIST traded this crown for one of  MAJESTY.   Revelation 14:14-15
14  "Again I looked, and behold, [I saw] a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud [a]One resembling a Son of Man, with a crown of gold on His head and a sharp scythe (sickle) in His hand."
Because of that, I can throw my shoulders back and hold my head up high, proclaiming: I am a DAUGHTER OF MAJESTY! Majesty means: "supreme greatness or authority; sovereignty" in the Hebrew it is  greatness of appearance, applied to dignity, pomp and splendor.
Jesus is supreme (highest in rank and authority) and I am His Daughter! You too are His daughter, or son if you have invited Him to be the Lord of Your life.
The periods of tragedy in our life ushers in an opportunity to be able to SHINE bright; because of WHOSE we are. For God's glory radiates right through the darkness of our circumstances; causing those who are watching (and listening) to embrace Hope as they too are facing difficult times.
"For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." 2 Cor. 4:6

Where are you in your book of life right now? Are you in the places of thrill and excitement or is the chapter you are in right now of tragedy, difficulties and sorrows? GOD KNOWS... He see's; He is reaching out His Hand of strength right now.  Decide now and choose to be the Child of Majesty today; allowing Him to rule with SUPREME authority and power in your life. That's all you have to do, is to surrender. Trust me, even in the midst of this period in your life; the Lord will flood your spirit with confidence in WHO you are and WHOSE you are.
"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of
 him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:"  I Peter 2:9
