Step out on faith and stay there!

Step out on faith and trust God to do it. Never, in all of my life, would I have thought I would be a preacher, teacher, speaker nor author. Yet, God has afforded me the opportunity to do ALL these things and more. It’s not because of me but it’s because I have the grace and anointing of Him within me.

I simply stopped by today to encourage someone who is feeling like giving up on being an author. Your time hasn’t come yet, you don’t have as many followers as everybody else, you can’t understand how they can sell books and you can’t or why their books can rank high on book selling sites and yours can’t but beloved; it’s not for you to figure out.

Your time is coming, you just have to trust God. Continue using your gift and trust God to do it for you. Your time is coming!

Step out on faith and stay there!

— Be blessed and keep writing!

LaKisha Johnson is an author of thirty Christian Fiction novels, devotionals and journals. She writes from her heart, as she hopes the messages, on the pages, will relate to every reader.  Ask her and she’ll tell you, ”It’s not just writing, its ministry.” Over the course of her career, she’s won the 2018 Drunken Druid Book of the Year Award for her book, The Forgotten Wife, 2019 Top Shelf Christian Fiction Book of the Year for Dear God: Hear my Prayer, 2020 Distinguished Authors Guild Award for her book, I’m Not Crazy and was a 2020 TopShelf Women’s Fiction Finalist for her book, When the Vows Break. In addition to being a self-published author, she’s also a wife of 22 years, mother of 2, Asst. Pastor of Macedonia MB Church in Hollywood, MS; Sr. Business Analyst with FedEx, Devotional Blogger and more. She’s a college graduate with 2 Associate Degrees in IT and a Bachelor of Science in Bible.   LaKisha writes from the heart, and this is why she doesn’t take the credit for what God does. If you were to strip away everything, you’d see that Lakisha is simply a woman who boldly, unapologetically and gladly loves and works for God.
