"God Lifted Me" is written to give my Heavenly Father, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus Christ all the glory, honor, praise, and gratitude my soul can muster. The poems reflect personal healing, affirmation, and validation. For five years, I have been bound by loss and grief, and I never knew it until I decided to be obedient and walk in the fullness of my purpose. I have been a writer of sorts since I was a teenager. However, I temporarily allowed a creative writing course to derail my writing future. When I consider those I could have touched or helped during my time of disobedience, I am ashamed and repentant. I am humbled that God lifted me and uses me as a vessel to help others through written and spoken words.
