Dear Sister,

What we ain’t about to do is continue pouring the gifts, God has given us, into fruitless relationships. We are not about to continually spread the untrue news that all men are bad. Hold on, some of the men may have been raggedy, but not all. Here’s the truth, and this may sting a little but I need you to get this … IT MAY BE YOU!

See, God has created you with strength that can stretch you pass your limits, favor that can withstand fights that should have defeated you and glory that shifts you from ordinary to extraordinary. You just have to know this about yourself. You are the bomb, damnit, yet you don’t trust your opinion of you.

Want to know why? I’ll tell you, even if you don’t. You haven’t taken the time to get to know you. You jump from relationship to relationship without grieving and healing from the one that ended. You lay in beds, creating soul ties with folk and you don’t break them. You continually diminish the power you possess in your head, heart and between your thighs.

Here’s what you do, HEAL YOU!

Have a funeral for everything you’ve lost, grieve it and heal. And while you’re on your healing journey:

• embrace YOU
• spend time with YOU
• love YOU
• get to know YOU
• believe in YOU

If not, you run the risk of raising little examples of broken you and that’s not fair to them.

My sister, it’s time you healed. You’re too old to be in the shape you’re in. You have children that shouldn’t have to keep watching momma arguing, fighting and crying over somebody God didnt create for you. You’re too beautiful to keep lowering your standards. And you’re too gifted to be treated like trash.

What we will do, from this point on, learn our worth and demand it!

Signed,
A sister who wants to see who whole! 💚

PS — The #SurvivingMe journal is available for you.

In four days …

In four days, I’m stepping out on faith and out of my comfort zone to do something God gave me last year. I’m hosting my very first ministerial event called Surviving Me. If you follow me on social media then you’ve seen the posts, but I wanted to share it here, for two reasons. One, so you’ll know and two, to encourage somebody to trust God and do it. Yes, it may be scary but if He gave you the plans; He’ll also provide the people, place, provisions, protection and peace.

See, I never had intentions of doing this because Surviving Me was only a scene in my book Broken but then I started getting messages about it and God wouldn’t leave me alone. I wrote it on a sticky note and pinned it to the wall in my Prayer Room and left it. God was still tugging at my heart, so I told Him, if this is meant, you make the way. Be careful what you tell God (LOL).

A little about Surviving Me. God and I are calling this, A Night of Worship: Divorce Edition because it’s designed almost like a divorce trial where we, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, prayer, song and God’s word; will divorce everything that causes us to abandon or abort our purpose. It is our prayer, that through this service, we divorce flesh and marry spirit. We divorce anger, bitterness, low self-esteem etc. to become who God has called us to be. Because let’s face it, sometimes, we’re our own worst enemy.

For this night, there is no cost and no registration fee; only a night of worship. There will be three speakers. Rev. LoTarsha Dillard, Arbeny Hunter and myself. There will also be prayer, praise and worship, a welcome and solo. I’ve scheduled two hours but fully intending to allow God to have total control.

Am I nervous? Yes, but not fearful because God gave me the vision and I trust Him enough to go forth, believing He’s going to see it through. I believe He’s going to prick the hearts of those who need to be in attendance and even those who He’ll send to sow into it. In other words, I’M BELIEVING and TRUSTING GOD. Y’all, I never want to be in the spotlight, but I know this event is not about me. It’s for some young lady who will be in the midst. It’s for somebody’s sister who is on the verge of giving up, but they won’t because their sister will come home telling them about #SurvivingMe. It’s for a mother, pastor, preacher, first lady, teacher, CEO, educator, guidance counselor, therapist, janitorial worker, warehouse worker, forklift driver, business owner, author, nurse, doctor, fire fighter, EMT, pilot, manager, etc. who feels hopeless, lost and their faith is falling.

Together, we’re SURVIVING ME!

If you’re in Memphis or surrounding areas, join us. If you are unable to attend, please send your prayers and if you would like to sow a seed, you may do so via cashapp ($RevKisha) or paypal.me/authorlakisha. If you’d like to order a Surviving Me Journal, click here or for any questions, you may reach me at authorlakisha@gmail.com.

Trust God. I did and in four days …

Luke 1:45, “And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.”

Press on, dear writer!

Dear God, hear my prayer.

Can I testify?

I purchased this cover a year before I even released the book. Why? Because I had intentions to release it in 2017 but God said NOPE! I didn’t understand it and I questioned God. God, haven’t I been faithful? God, what else? God, why me? All the questions I asked the many months I toiled, the many nights I cried and the days of wanting to just throw in the towel.

But I pressed!

Bible says in Philippians 3:12, “Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.”

God shut me down but it was the best thing for me, even when I couldn’t see it because in 2018, I released 7 books with Dear God being my very first full Christian book. I was nervous because it was different from any I’d written previously. This book didn’t have sex and minimal to no cursing. Yet, it has been one of my best sellers.

This book deals with sexual abuse at the hands of a pastor who should have been praying instead he preyed. And while Jayme’s story is one of fiction, this same abuse is happening in houses all across the world but there’s hope. Hope to overcome, hope to press and hope to be restored.

Thank you to everybody who has read it, reviewed it, recommended it and got release through it. I appreciate you. For every email I received, I prayed for you. For every inbox, I covered you.

And to you who seems to be in a season of little to no return … press on! You will recover all! Don’t stop writing, press! Don’t give up, press. Don’t look at the royalty checks, trust in the gift God has instilled in you.

And when it feels too heavy and the enemy is speaking in your ear … I am praying your faith does not fail.

❤️

I wish I could take credit …

1_BjJgI9A-retXEEUu-Efl5g

I wish I could take sole credit for penning all the books, I have but I didn’t do it alone. Truth is, I couldn’t do it alone. Writing, for me, isn’t about money or fame, I write because it’s assigned to my name. This is why, every book is prayed over; before, during and after.

It’s not about me. If it were, I’d continually push books, with no rhyme or reason. If it were about me, I wouldn’t care if a message was received by the readers, it would be about royalties. If it were about me, I wouldn’t care about the negative reviews but I do (some of them). However, this isn’t about me. This ministry of Lakisha, the Author … it’s all God!

I’m grateful to God and to the readers and supporters who are there for every release. I’m even more appreciative of the seasons of drought because they have me time to work, study and get better.

I wish I had the magic answer, the right keywords for ads, the perfect promoter, the thing that’s going to catapult your career and increase sales but I don’t. What I do know is, it takes time. For someone who don’t think their work is enough, it is and DO NOT, under any circumstances, give up! You got this but you’ve got to keep going, keep writing, keep preaching, keep believing, keep trusting and keep getting up!

It’ll payoff when you pray, tithe, trust God and work your faith.

I’m a living witness and if you need proof, click HERE to see.

Happy Reading,
Lakisha
