The Full Story.
What an amazing journey this has been! I am simply in awe of what the Lord has done and is doing in the lives of the women of IAMSK! Just know the foundation of this ministry is simply God’s Love and Transparency.
Let me tell you how I AM MY Sister’s Keeper was birthed.
During the initial impartation, God gave me a blueprint without giving me full access to the plan. All too often, we see a glimpse of what’s to come that scares us from moving forward into what needs to be done. I was going through a rough time in my life; a broken engagement of 5 years to a man I thought I truly loved; I was no longer attending church services due to the depression I faced due to the loss of my love. I didn’t trust anyone, ESPECIALLY WOMEN, and thoughts of suicide crossed my mind every other day. My relationship with God was ALMOST nonexistent. I say ALMOST because even on my darkest days, I could feel God’s Spirit around me protecting me, keeping me, and holding me. On my darkest days, I could feel His Love around me; I could still hear His Voice, and I could still feel His presence. He still loved me despite what I was going through and what I was feeling, and from those who had abandoned me. I didn’t feel worthy of His love but His love made me worthy.
The Lord started sending people into my life who could minister the Word of God to me and pray for me in those dark times; but most of all, could love me without boxes, borders or boundaries. It was in those times, that I AM My Sister’s Keeper was birthed. Now, along with the blueprint, came the plan.
Time moved forward and I was doing everything I thought I was supposed to be doing to make this baby grow. However, a year and a half ago, I entered a new place of uncertainty; a place that challenged me to the very core of everything I understood about me. A place that made me second guess who I was, where I was going, and who I belonged to. A place that made me question the very essence of who I was as a daughter of the Most High God, a Minister and Teacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; a friend, and a mother to my children. I was in a place that shook me to the very foundation of who I was, where I thought I was going, and what I thought my purpose was. When I pulled out on the other side, I had learned how to stop blaming others for the dilemma that I had gotten myself in, and then the Lord hit reboot and the downloads began.
The downloads…. the downloads…. the downloads…. My God, the downloads! Here comes the process. You should know that when you endure God’s process, no matter how hard it is, when you come out on the other side, you have the victory. The downloads…. every day for the last year and a half…. the downloads just kept coming.
Download #1 – BE QUIET!
He told me that He had birthed in me a vision that would change the lives of many women and it required me to shut my mouth for a season. For a whole year, I had to be quiet and trust God’s process. Listen, anytime God is getting ready to birth something great in the lives of His people, there will be a pruning, a separation, or a crushing; it separates the wheat from the tare. Everybody around us can’t go where we’re going. Everybody we love won’t be happy for us. Everybody who says “I got your back” won’t stand with you during the process. Many might even be described as dream killers because they don’t have dreams of their own or they aren’t willing to work in obedience to have the dream that God promised.
Download #2 – Accept the Process.
Accept the Process. During my quiet time with the Lord, He sent me to Exodus 3:14. God reminded me of His servant Moses, and his experience with the burning bush. Moses asked God “who shall I tell them sent me?” God said, “Tell them ‘I AM THAT I AM’ sent you.” When we look at the Hebrew for this text, we understand that it is translated “I will to be that which I will to be.” Now what does that mean to us? It literally means that God will be whatever we need Him to be, in whatever situation we need Him to be in; EVERYTHING WE NEED, GOD IS. That is the foundation of this ministry.
I AM My Sister’s Keeper is founded on Exodus 3:14 because we know and understand that everything we need, every situation, and every desire of our heart, God is more than able to provide. This ministry is unique and wonderfully made for every one of us. When God created woman, He saved the BEST for last!
We are beautiful and everything that God is, WE ARE! There are times in the past where we have felt defeated due to life’s situations and circumstances; we have felt less than and have not lived up to our full potential as God has created us to be. We didn’t have the tools or the knowledge to understand that He divinely crafted us, loved us, and empowered us for greatness. I AM My Sister’s Keeper was birthed out of my pain and reconstruction, so that women from all walks of life, all ethnicities, and all nationalities would experience and know the true love of God as they walk in the purpose, the power, and the possibilities He created for them.
I AM My Sister’s Keeper is a safe place where we uplift, encourage, empower, inspire, and assist our sisters as we cross paths in the Kingdom of God. Our mission is to help keep our sister’s arms lifted and empowered when they feel they can’t move forward.
Our motto is “I AM My Sister’s Keeper”. Everything that God says He is, WE ARE! I AM an original. I AM God’s masterpiece and His workmanship. I was hand-crafted by God to do great exploits. I AM not a mistake. I existed in the mind of God before my parents conceived me. Not only do I exist, but my purpose does too! I was hand-crafted by God and wired to do what no one else will ever be able to do quite like me. I AM the apple of God’s eye. I AM an heir of God and a joint-heir with His Son, Lord Jesus.
God foreknew me, ordained me, elected me, chose me and predestined a plan for me to look just like Jesus. I AM the light of the world! I AM the salt of the earth! I AM the temple of the Holy Spirit, and I AM a friend of God! I AM My Sister’s Keeper!
I AM My Sister’s Keeper is a safe place where we uplift, encourage, empower, inspire, and assist our sisters as we cross paths in the Kingdom of God.
