I thank God for peace. I thank God for peace, in the name of Jesus Christ.
As I pray to God during my quiet times with Him, I thank Him for providing me with His peace, that surpasses my understanding, of the future and what is to come.
~”For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”~Jeremiah 29:11, NIV~
I believe with conviction that God has called me to be an author and a counselor. These callings on my life have immensely blessed me as the Lord God has shown me of the future that is to come as a result of these great callings that He has on my life.
One reason that I believe that God has called me to become an author is because God has gifted me with the talent of writing. Writing is one of my many talents that God has given me, beside a wise and discerning spirit. I enjoy writing because with it, I can glorify God through this tool.
I write on blog posts and as a news editor for Atlanta Christian Voice. I am very blessed that God called me to set up this blog website, ‘Sarah’s Spiritual Walk,” after I went on a missions trip to Lebanon a couple of years ago. I am also immensely blessed that the Father called the president of One Christian Voice to choose me to become the news editor for Atlanta Christian Voice.
Several months ago, I was interviewed by a Christian broadcast television network for my missionary works in Lebanon, Japan, and Uganda. I was also interviewed regarding how I became a news editor for Atlanta Christian Voice and I explained in the interview how God made me to become the news editor and how God is growing the business. I thank the Lord for moments like these because I can glorify God in these special moments!
I also believe that God has also called me to become a counselor because I have been through many hardships of which I believe that my future clients can relate to and that I can provide counsel to through the Word of God. I am currently in the Liberty University online program for my third Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am halfway through the program and do not graduate until the Fall 2021.
Even after I graduate, I still intend to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), in the state of Georgia. In this way, a few years later, I will be known as Sarah A. Dickens, LPC. Praise the Lord!
I still have a long way to go before I graduate. With the Lord Jesus holding my hand, I have peace that surpasses all understanding. I have peace in the future and what it holds. My future is in the Lord’s hands! Amen!
~”Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.“~Philippians 4:8-9, NIV~
