I went before the Courtroom of God, demanded restitution and my writing was returned to me. I felt it during the prayer and received it by faith.
The desire and ideas started to come back, and now it was up to me to do someth
My next step is to begin anew with my writing, and this post is the first of many to come. It was also time to invest in myself. I enrolled in a course titled Tribe Writers and I am growing.
