Hello, my name is Amina, and I live in South Florida. I moved here two years ago from North Carolina, but my roots are in the District of Columbia. I love it here. I am officially retired, but I still do work administrative work for small businesses.

For the past year, the Holy Spirit has been moving me to use the skills I have been given in a more creative way. The Lord gave me gifts to use for His Glory and to help other people. Not just to seek financial reward, but to spread my new found understanding of the Word of God. I have decided after much pray to use my talent and love of writing to share with people I have never met what I have come to understand.

Many people do not understand the wonderful gift that we have been offered because of the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for all of us. Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge ….” (KJV)  To me this is a perfect example of what is going on today, many people seem to be on the fast track to destruction.

As I was asking the Lord about the direction I should go in to use the gifts he has blessed me with, I had doubts because so many people write devotionals and Bible study interpretation. But the Holy Spirit remind me that the Word can be explained in many different ways. Everyone does not grasp the meaning during the first reading, the second, or even the third. I personally know this to be true since I have read the Bible through  many times and did not read with the clear understanding that I have received recently. The Holy Spirit can move each individual in a different direction to understand and write about God’s Word. So although there are many writers, my work could be the one that helps someone to believe and accept the gift Jesus died to give us.

I pray that anyone reading my material will benefit from it, and if even one person does, it will be worth the effort. Any comments will be gratefully received.

  1. I also did not understand the Scriptures as I do now Amina and found contradiction in what was being taught in different Churches. I will leave a link for you that explains how my confusion was resolved but the main thing that God showed me was I needed to ask for His Wisdom as I was not born with it or His empowering by The Holy Spirit and without them I could not understand His Truth as we see confirmed below.

    Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing therefore get wisdom and with all thy getting get understanding.

    James 1:5-6 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God that giveth to all liberally and upbraideth not and it shall be given them. But let them ask in Faith nothing wavering. For them that wavereth are like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

    Proverbs 2:9-11 Then shalt thou understand righteousness and judgment and equity; yea, every good path. When Wisdom entereth into thine heart and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul.

    1 Corinthians 2:9-16 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that Love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth but which the Holy Ghost teacheth, comparing spiritual things with Spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness unto him neither can he know them because they are Spiritually discerned. But he that is Spiritual judgeth all things yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the Mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? but we have the Mind of Christ.

    • Good morning from Sunny Florida

      Thank you for commenting on my post. Procrastination has been a problem off and on during a lot of my life. As I get older I recognize it faster than I used to, but it takes time to correct my direction. I read your comments and looked up the Scripture you suggested. Again thank you for sharing. While reading Scripture this morning, I found Ecclesiastes 9:10,”Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with [all] thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.” (KJV) In other words when the Holy Spirit tells me to do something, do it now and do not let the spirit of passivity (cousin to procrastination) get a hold of me. Have a Blessed Day. Amina


      • You are right Amina procrastination is not of the Holy Spirit but it is different to passivity where there is no interest, procrastination is like being lukewarm, there is no passion to do what needs to be done or for some fleshy worry or interests prevents action, if motivated by God we will seek to act when needed and be empowered and equipped to do so, Jesus tells us we are to Ask, Seek and Knock.

        As for… Ecclesiastes 9:10 this Scripture is referring to the time before Pentecost and it is True, Worldly work, Worldly knowledge and wisdom and man made tools will cease to be but there is no end to The Holy Spirit’s empowering for those indwelt by Christ Jesus The Living Word (John1) who are One in The Godhead with The Father and what is needed will remain.

        1 John 5: 7 For there are Three that bear record in Heaven, The Father, The Word, and The Holy Ghost: and these Three are One.

        Blessings – Anne.
