I Went From A Home To Homelessness To Follow My Dream

I went from having everything to having nothing, believing one day my dream would come true.
I wanted more than anything in the world to have my book published, I felt I had something to share with the world.

I had survived after the murder of my son.

I received a contract in May 2007, by July 2007, I was homeless.

I cried I couldn't understand, I had just received a contract and now I am homeless.

I refused to give up on my dream. My family told me to come back home, I said no.
I made a choice. I rather stay in the streets and survive my dream than to go home and my dream die. I lived in the streets.

It was the hardest task I ever had to complete. It was my journey,my test of faith if I was going to make it.

I ate in that shop, I bathed in that shop, I cried in that shop, I prayed in that shop, because that was my home for seven months.

I read :Matthews 21:22 God says All things, whatsoever I ask in prayer,believing,I shall receive.

I knew A Silent Scream would one day be published. It did while I was homeless.

I read Matthews 20:29- For everyone that hath forsaken houses ,brothers ,or sisters,or mothers, or fathers, wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake shall receive and hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

I knew God allowed me to be in the situation I was in for him to get the glory. I was afraid of being homeless, I was tired of sleeping on the floor with a blanet over behind the curtains in a dressing, I was afraid of not knowing how if I was going to eat or someone one would break in the shop and hurt me. I had faith.

Sometimes I got upset I cried but I never gave up. I got on my knees and prayed to God in the midst of my storm.

Sometimes It got so hard, I wanted to run back home, I stood still.
Mattews 8:24-26 is why I am standing her today.

There arose a great tempest in the sea, in so much that the ship was covered with the waves: but God was asleep
Matthew 8:25 And his disciples came to God, and woke him saying Lord,save us: we will die
Matthews 8:26 God said unto them Why are you fearful, Oh ye of little faith? Then God arose, and rebuke the sea; and there was a great calm.

I knew in my situation I knew God was watching over me.

A Silent Scream is published and it is the pass to my future.

Go to the extent to your dream, even it means going alone.

I wrote my next book surrounding my trials and tribulation and I titled it
Will My Morning Ever Come.

I don't write for sympathy, I write to share my blessing from God.

Thank you for the encouraging words. I am not where I want to be, I am thankful for where I am.
I hope to encourage others that no matter what we go through, there's always away.
