I know it has been quiet here on the blog the last couple of weeks. I haven’t forgotten about you all, I have been busy working hard to finish writing my first book to get to my editor next week! Y’all this has been such an incredible undertaking for me, and I can’t wait to see what the Lord does with it. I would appreciate your prayers as I finish up and move into the editing phase. You all will be the first to know when it gets published!!
Until then I wanted to share an interview that I did with my friend Author Amy Elaine Martinez in her Victory Girl interview series on Facebook Live this week on February 6, 2018. Amy is the Author of Becoming A Victory Girl. We both attended the She Speaks Conference 2016 and became friends online and finally met in person this year at the Declare Conference and we’ve become fast friends.
We had some technical difficulties at the beginning of our Facebook Live video, but my sweet husband was able to edit the video down from an hour to about 20 minutes. Amy and I have a fantastic conversation about how God meets us in our grief and makes us overcomers. We talk about how our world is loud and noisy and we have to get into the quiet place to hear from God, and how we have victory through living a surrendered life in faith to Jesus. We talk about praying hard prayers and the importance of praying specific prayers.
Amy and I both share a bit about the loss of our brothers who both died in tragic accidents. I also share about coming to a place of absolute surrender when I broke both my arms at the same time and how God showed up in a mighty unexpected way! We discuss the deep and painful wounds of losing a child, and how God used that difficult situation for good.
The more time I spend with Amy the more I find we have in common. Amy is a passionate Victory Girl that has a beautiful heart for the Lord and the girl is a prayer warrior! She is an author, speaker, Bible teacher and ministry leader who longs to see women walk in victory.
Becoming A Victory Girl is available now on Amazon! If you need encouragement to become a VICTORY GIRL, Amy’s book packs a punch and you will love her victory’s girls battle cry, prayers, and encouragement!
Y’all, we can have victory in Jesus even in the middle of difficult situations. Life is hard, and Jesus warned us that we would have trouble in this world, but He assures us that we can have peace.
“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33
Jesus overcame the world when he conquered sin, death, hell and the grave through his death, burial, and resurrection. An unlikely paradox, Jesus entered into our human condition and humbled himself to death on the cross to heal our fractured world. If you have any questions about this I would be honored to pray with you and share the hope of Jesus that is within me. Or if there is an area in your life that you are struggling to gain victory in, I would love to pray for you!
