"Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." (Jeremiah 1:5 AMPC)
I thought I'd introduce myself on a more personal level and share some things about me that you may not know. I'm Leisa, a 34-year transplant from NY, where I was born and raised, to Houston, TX, where I presently live. It's been a journey with lots of twists and turns but I'm here. I'm walking in my purpose and calling and loving every minute of it.
This Scripture has been real in my life and it's a promise God has given all of His children:
"I’ll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for." (Jeremiah 29:10b-11 MSG)
I'm honored to be a part of a group of phenomenal women contributing to Our Story Magazine. (You can get your copy of the magazine on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Story-Magazine-Hope-Inspiration-Seasons-Grace/dp/B09MJW8ZCS/ref)
If you want to know more about Our Story Magazine, here's the link:
For too long we have been silenced, misused, abused, and more. Yet, God called us. He gave us a voice, creative ways of expression, and an audience that needs to hear our voices! They need our story collectively and individually! The expression of our voices is so unique, diverse, creative, and powerful, in its own way! We've been prepared for such a time as this.
I'm thankful to Krista Hewlett for her vision and commitment to give life to this vision. I'm sure it wasn't easy but it sure is a blessing!
My call to ministry is unique, challenging, and exciting. My primary focus is encouragement, as evidenced by my mission and vision statement:
Leisa Wilkins Ministries: Encouraging and Empowering you to become who you were created to be, God's Masterpiece, a Divine Original.
Coupled with encouragement I'm also called to what I've identified as an Aaron/Hur and Acts 6:4 ministry, to undergird the pastors, where God leads me to serve, so they can focus on the Word, preparation, and be able to serve the people with an undivided heart.
"But we will continue to devote ourselves steadfastly to prayer and the ministry of the Word." (Acts 6:4 AMPC)
My calling has been an adventure and God keeps revealing more, and new mini adventures along the way. Never a dull moment for sure!
I'm also an author and have published three devotionals.
