Daily Devotional – 9/1/17 “Six years later…”

Every year, on this date, I celebrate the start of my blog; Kisha’s Daily Devotional. Whether you are reading this from the site, via email, social media or if someone shared it with you; thank you. This blog was not created for me to get famous or for accolades because the truth of the matter is; this has never been about me. One day, I stepped out on faith and begin sharing with you, what God has been sharing with me. I’m just His messenger. And six (6) years, 1386 posts, 185,432K views from all over the world, 559 blog, 859 twitter and 341 Facebook followers later; we are still be here. It is not because I’ve been doing everything right, I still fall short sometimes. It is not because I have all the answers, I am still learning. It is not because of me, I have no power. Yet God has need of my voice and I vowed it to Him one Thursday to use it. Has it been easy, no but it has been worth it.

I have no idea what this next year will look like, what tomorrow holds for Lakisha neither where this anointing will take me but I packed for this journey the minute I said yes to God. And if one somebody steps out on faith, through this blog; if just one somebody gets closer to God, through this blog; if just one somebody says YES to God through this blog; my work isn’t in vain. I seek to serve God with all of me and that sometimes means sharing with you, even when I don’t feel like it or even sharing some personal struggles and testimonies with you even if I never meet you personally. This blog isn’t just mine but it is OURS for me to tell you not to allow fear to hold you hostage in the boat, step out on faith. You will not believe this (maybe you will) but the most viewed post ever is one from 2/24/12, “Write your vision, make it plain,” with over 1,891 views (and it is a long post). I will share with you the ending. It says, “Trust in God when it comes to His word because He won’t leave you nor forsake you. Stop being bound by fear and step out on faith because faith is a belief in what you do not see but acting as if it is already done. Through faith you receive favor and favor makes you fruitful and being fruitful means you’re fulfilling the need and once the need is fulfilled then you’re rewarded! Not a reward by man but rewarded by God who keeps dropping blessings in your bucket even when you don’t deserve them.”
