Testimony: Triumphing Over Trials

Towards the end of 2019, I started working for a company as a communications writer. Although, it was a contract role, I was excited because finally I was working as a writer full-time. Writing full-time was something that I prayed for to honor God with the creative writing ability that he blessed me with. I didn’t connect the dots that I didn’t need an official title because God has already equipped me with everything I needed, and He had something greater in store for me.

Fast forward to the beginning of 2020, my contract unexpectedly ended and to say that I was devastated is an understatement. I was in despair, worrying how I would pay my mortgage (I’m a new homeowner), utilities, general bills, and survive. I didn’t see the end of the contract coming, and all I could think of is why? Why would God give me a position where I’m finally writing just to take it away so quickly? I will admit the first couple of days were tough. I needed solutions and I was tired of praying. Yes, this Believer prayed; however, in the midst of the storm, I was tired of people telling me to pray after I already did. I needed help.

Truthfully, prayer saved me. Prayer gave me strength. Close friends and family interceded for me when I was in too much despair to form sentences to pray. God understood, He heard, and answered.

At the time, I didn’t know that we were headed into a pandemic that literally shut the world down. COVID-19 has changed the way we live, and I believe God was preparing me for it. Although I wish COVID-19 never happened like so many others, I can see God’s hand in blessing me on the back end.

During this pandemic, God has met every need (financial, mental, spiritual, physical). I was concerned how I would pay my mortgage, but then I remembered that this is God’s house and He didn’t bless me to let me lose it. Praise GOD I am still here. God has sent earthly angels who donated money to me without me even asking. I am beyond blessed and thankful to those who sowed into me during this time. One thing I can say is that I never stopped tithing. When I initially received unemployment (right before the pandemic), I knew that I had to give back to God. Was it tight? Yes, but again, I am living proof that when you honor God, He will honor you.

I took a leap of faith to register my business 7even Media, LLC and I’m releasing my first book “Healing from a Heartbreak: A Journey to Focusing on You After a Breakup” in July. God also opened a door for me to take an amazing 7-week entrepreneurship class for FREE. And, I was asked to mentor aspiring women entrepreneurs in a 90-day program. I still cannot believe that I am mentoring women in business. BUT GOD!

I was so concerned about how I was going to pay down some debt because before my contract ended, I was aggressive with knocking down my debt. God has allowed me to continue to pay my debt while saving. I have one more payment left on my car (I’m paying it off earlier than expected)! You cannot tell me God is not real and He is not able. He is! I am because He is!

There will be more testimonies to come, but wanted to share how God has allowed me to be triumphant over this trial. To God be the glory!
