God is speaking …what do I do now?

What do you do when God gives you a dream?

Earlier on this year I started writing. I had so many stories and situations that had happened in my life spanning across the years. In January I just sat down and started writing, I wrote my first two blog posts overnight and published them in the morning. That is where this journey began. I have also been praying and talking about writing a book…I didn’t know what to write about or what to call it. So I prayed until God answered.

“Diaries of a Visionary started off as a thought, the thought become a blog and the blog transpired into a book ~ a collection of bestsellers”

In April 2016 I got the inspiration to write this book, I called it Diaries of a Visionary ~ Inspiring Dreams. The other day someone asked me where I got this inspiration from…well all good inspiration comes from God because he is the Great Inspirer and the Almighty Enabler!!!!!

What do you do when God is speaking, you listen and obey. #liveyourdreams

In April this year, God opened a door for me to work with a Christian book publisher based in Maitland, Florida called Xulon Press. I stepped out in a faith one step at a time. I wasn’t working at the time, I remember telling the publishers that once I get a job I will be able to start the process of publishing this book. Whilst I was at home one afternoon, I was listening to a Heather Lindsey video on You Tube entitled ‘Are you doing what God told you to do?” She was basically talking about when God tells you to do something and you start making excuses, once I get more money, once I get more social media followers and so on and so on…. This message spoke to me, I felt like I was making an excuse not to publish my book, I was waiting for a job rather than just stepping out in faith.  Later on that day I emailed the publishers and told them that I was going to step out in faith and publish this book. They said that they were going to step out in faith with me and so the venture began. I paid them an initial amount to begin working on the book and my next payment was not due until the end of July, they said if for any reason I could not make a payment in July they would move it to August.#Godisgood

This was me taking the first step. . .

Psalms 37:23 – the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way.

My book was published at the end of July 2016, I finally got a job in August 2016, if I had waited for the job, I would probably still be waiting. Sometimes God just wants us to trust Him. Faith is when you take the first step even when you cannot see the rest of the staircase.

    Hi Desiri, huge congratulations on your book being published! You don’t know me but I go to the Potter’s House Holloway. I shared the fact I feel God has laid a book on my heart to write with my husband, King, and he told me about you! (He knows you from Rotherhithe) Your story is massively encouraging. Here’s to the future – perhaps I will join the ‘published author club’ one day! May God bless your every endeavour, Melissa x
