Persistence Paid Off Big Time

  Here she is, Mrs. Donna Apperson, "Mrs. Persistence." The Lady that would not stop asking me to minister at the prison. How many times have you said, "I really don't want to impose upon someone? I can't make them do it."  That is true we cannot make people do things but sometimes we can be just the nudge that they need to do what they should. Donna was that nudge for me. Had she not asked me several times I would be angry with her throughout eternity. I would have missed out on the wonderful opportunity to serve the women in the prison according to what Jesus spoke about in  Matt. 25: 35-36,  

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you looked after Me, I was in prison and you visited Me.’…

  I would have missed out on what God was trying to teach me. I would have missed out on writing, Answering the Call of God and discovering a divine opportunity in unexpected place because I would not have answered. Thank God for persistent people like Donna who don't give up. It's not just those who may be away from God that we need to pursue. We also have to pursue those that know God but have a tendency to run away from what does fit our plans. I'm learning to ask God, "Does my plan line up with your plan?" And however he responds I'm okay with it.

Turn Your Mistakes Into Assests

To help you bring the message of the video home the script is below. As you read it, think of the possibilities of the first three questions. This is what she said,   What if your past mistakes could become your greatest assets? What if telling your story could save someone else’s life? And what if you said No to Fear and YES to Faith? In her new book Answering the Call of God: How to Discover Divine Opportunities in Unexpected Places, author Tijuanna Adetunji has created a practical guide that will inspire you to go from living a customary to an extraordinary life.   In Answering the Call of God Tijuanna teaches how these possibilities can become a reality by exploring the lives of people just like you. She explains that answering the call of God is not limited to those who wear a clerical collar or have attended seminary. But it is for everyone that desires to fulfill their life’s purpose. So be inspired and get the peace, passion, and power you need to move forward. My book discusses these questions and helps you discover the answers and much more.
