Hello Trail Blazer!


Sometimes the places that God leads you to aren’t just for you.  Sometimes you are put in those places to blaze trails for others and to encourage others.  You’d be surprised to know how many people need the light that you carry.  God knows where your light is needed most.  He knows whose light of hope is growing dim and He knows whose sadness is creating darkness.  He has strategically placed you in your environment to shine your light and to lead others to Him.  When you are bold enough to shine your light, His favor becomes mighty enough to take you places you’ve only dreamed of going.

No matter where you go, be determined to let your light shine.  Walk with confidence and courage everywhere that you go. Blaze trails that inspire others to follow Jesus.

God has a plan to use you today!

    No one can go the path alone. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 tells us that two are better than one. When we have the courage to endure our trials we are also becoming an example of what it means to overcome. I have been able to step back and see how every experience that I have went through can assist others, the same way that others stories inspire me. Erika you are blazing a trail of positive encouragement that gets others to do as Philippians 4:8 encourages us to do, think on what’re is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable. Your trail blazing will plant seeds that will harvest on others. Thank you for blazing that trail with God as your guide!

      Thanks so much for your encouragement friend! That’s one of my favorite scriptures because it reiterates that there is power in number! Alone we can do some thing but together we can do mighty and great things. Thanks for letting God use your light to lead others to Him during some of the most challenging and difficult seasons of their lives. Because of your willingness to help and be used by God, they can experience what life is like on the other side with Jesus. You’re a beautiful bright light to all who know you! The best is yet to come my friend. Continue to shine your light–from Houston to Dallas, and the world abroad! Love ya! =)

    You posted this on Wed.April 16th and I went to bible study on Thur. April 17th. During bible study my Pastor said, “Sometimes God will take you to a place that you don’t like, so you can be a blessing.” Then he stated, “Sometimes you have to be a Trailblazer!” It was like he was speaking directly to me when he said it and I just sat there in awe at how amazing God is because I instantly thought back to your post! God is always speaking to us and I love how he works! God is using you in such a wonderful way Sis! Glory to God!
