Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it. –C.S. Lewis

Erica D: A Good Example or A Horrible Warning?

I should be dead, but in fact I have never been so alive. I think a lot of people feel dead in a lot of ways and I am hoping, by relating, I can help re-light your lamps one post at a time.
I don’t preach, I promise! Be blessed and thank you for being a part of My Message!

Just call me Job

;

Hi and blessings to each of you who are reading my blog! I am not a pro blogger (yet) wink, but I am a pro humanitarian! I love spreading encouraging words whether I am writing, speaking, or praying! I am working on my first book, My Message, and what you read here on my blog is a girl’s first real attempt to be what God has called her to be blindly !

I have a testimony that is very much like the book of Job in the Bible. If you are familiar with Job, you perhaps are saying “Wow, tough break E!”, but if you are still wondering who I am referring to click on the link titled Job: It’s All In The Name.

My past is one of drugs, manipulation, emotional abuse, loss of everything material, destroyed relationships, and even hustling older guys in Las Vegas and Oakland! I was on my own everywhere I ran and somehow managed to survive it all. I can assure you it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that the only reason I am alive is because I am supposed to be telling you all the whole raw, unedited truth of what life absent of God is all about. The testimony I am sharing should not be easy to tell everyone, but it is for me because God has used it to pave the way to my future. I do not regret a single day. It is my purposeful and powerful existence that God specifically wrote just for me! I don’t want to do much other than let you know I also have been there, smoked that, hated myself, gave my love to men who spit it on the floor… I could keep going, but that is all just the story. The ending, the conclusion to the chaos is here. The place I connect with you. I know it’s dark if you are where I was, but don’t worry! God has fanned the flame. I have ignited and am burning through the bs the enemy has used to destroy YOU. The strong, the talented, the faithful, the child like, the I used to be happy YOU!

Job: It’s All In The Name

From the perfect life to constant strife, Ladies and Gentlemen have been through it all. My voice is loud and I am not afraid to tell my painfully personal story in order to give as many people possible an option to help them avoid the very dark, very lonely truth of thinking you know it all.

  1. I know exactly what you are saying. My story has sexual, mental, and emotional and some physical abuse that I carried on into my adult life with men that I chose to try and get Love from. I finally died and reached out to God. He healed me of an STD that I had for 17 years and I took a vow of Purity. I to am not ashamed of my past and can boldly share it because Jesus took my shame so I can now help others with my testimony. I love to hear stories like ours, it just shows that God is Alive over and over again and I to would not change a minute of my life (:

  2. Thank you being as eloquent as were transparent tin sharing details about your journey before Christ (B.C.). It was very inspiring and a joy to know what God has done in your life; your light really shines. Also, I really like your writing style and I am glad I was able to read your blog (computer behaved) this evening! I look forward to reading more in the future. May God continue to bless you abundantly.!

  3. Thank you for sharing some of your story. I can empathise with you as I do with Job, who I think of as an old friend! After years of complex medical problems, becoming more complex by the week, literally, I take a number of prescription drugs that you would not believe. I am admitted to hospital several times a year. But through all this The Lord has been faithful to me. He has a job for me to do and with each hospital admission I have more opportunities to witness.

    • I am praying for you sister. I cannot imagine how difficult it must be, but I can imagine how peaceful the rest is that Jesus gives you while fighting the fight. Thank you for sharing with me. I know God has great things for you and I am blessed to be connected! Stay faithful!

  4. Hmm; The hope of heaven, the knowledge that we’ll someday enjoy “peace eternal”, means we can face anything here on earth as long as we focus on the joy that’s waiting for us in heaven! Erica… while a blessing of kindness ripples outward to others, it boomerangs right back to the one who threw the pebble; Here is something that I’ve acquired the knowledge of “How far you go in life depends on your being tender W/the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong — because someday in life you will be all of these!!! My hats off 2 you girl.. 🙂

    • Thank you so much Jimmie! You are right! I am blessed The Lord has allowed me to share my story with so many and, in doing so, bring to others attention just how real His love is for them!

      I appreciate your support and keep fighting the good fight!

  5. You are a very inspiring person and just to imagine the struggles and obstacles you have overcome and still be able to keep on with a smile… wow, your strength is amazing. Keep me updated on your blogs. Cause I sure do know I need more of your positive attitude and just reading your message just brightened my day. Thank you.

    • Julian!!
