Welcome To My World!

Shalom in the name of Yeshua Ha Meshiach! (Jesus the Messiah)
This is my first attempt at what is known as "blogging" so please bear with me as I learn the ins and outs. I would like to share with you my "God moments" or in other words the insights that God has shared with me. His revelations and inspirations did not come from angel visitations or some super natural manifestation but rather from taking the time to be still and know that He is God. (Psalm 46:10) Did you know God wants to speak to you? He is constantly speaking and will connect if we take the time to listen. Thus, the title of the blog, "God Speaking." Much of what I share comes from my journaling. Journaling is one of the spiritual disciplines that allows me to capture what God has to say and hopefully learn from it as He daily transforms me from the inside out. My journey has been a long and interesting one but I really began to hear from God as I came to understand the legacy that I received from my great-grandmother Florence Mills. She was a co-founder of The Emmanuel Holiness Church in Roxbury, MA. which is still an active congregation today. Florence was full of the Holy Spirit and demonstrated a commanding presence among the people. In the church she was known as a "mother" of the congregation which in the Black Church is a term of great respect and honor. I believe that God made a promise to her that her legacy would be carried on similar to the promise God made to Abraham that he would be the father of many nations. Through much prayer and work with a spiritual director I have come to recognize that I am the one who is to carry on my great grandmother's legacy. It is a humbling experience and I pray I will be a blessing to others following in her footsteps. I also pray that the insights I share will in some way encourage you and at the same time challenge you to draw closer to Him and listen for His Spirit to resonate in your soul!
In Christ,
Pastor Sheree
