Have you noticed how we live in a fast-paced and instant world a belief in God seems to be losing its relevance? Do you also meet with people who constantly question the existence, validity and usefulness of belief in a supreme being? Have you ever wondered if God was real or if He ever spoke? Do you wonder whether He is interested in the affairs of men? I believe God is real. He is a loving Father with outstretched arms waiting and calling out for us to come back to Him. He desires us to come closer for a life-changing and purposeful relationship with Him. He is talking all the time. Maybe we just need to slow down, tune in and listen sometimes. I know there are times when it seems He’s gone frightfully quiet; even then, He’s still with us. At these times, He is gently encouraging us to trust in His ever-abiding presence. In this book, I share some of my own life experience and frustrating conversations to encourage you to see and explore how real God is. On so many occasions when He has spoken to me, my default behaviour has been to dismiss His voice and warnings. The more I slowed down and stopped to listen, the more I obeyed, and the more I did the clearer His voice seemed to me. Mark Virkler, founder of the Christian Leadership University has kindly added a chapter of his best selling book “4 Keys to Hearing Gods voice” to this book! Here is what Charity Kayembe who also teaches dream interpretation had to say: “ Thank you so much. You are a blessing! And I’m grateful that you are sharing the message that God speaks through dreams with others. May God’s blessing and anointing be upon you, your new book, and your entire ministry in Jesus’ name!” Understand your dreams. Hear God’s voice.
This is a fictional story centered on the life of an innocent brown-coloured girl growing up in a "normal" African family, who was discovered without permission. Cici is a girl just like any other but has a tough time navigating through life to discover her true worth. She learned from a young age to trade her body for what she wanted so desperately - love! She goes through several phases of body changes and events, largely unnoticed by her family but she receives deeply-craved attention from unhealthy sources which would cost her so much. She gets passed on from one man to another; and eventually ends up being raped by her "cool" stepdad... Love entered her life in a most strange and mysterious way after she gave herself permission to be discovered. Embracing real love opens the door to romance via a digital communication following an unexpected tragedy. Love at first byte is a must-read for anyone who has or knows girls searching for their true worth, identity and value in a more permissive world! Cici would have been a heroine of the 'me-too' movement if she spoke up in her time, maybe?
Disclaimer: This book is not advice or a suggestion that people dissolve a marriage at the first sight of a challenge. I am only telling my story to share the magnificent power of the love of a merciful God, His grace and ability to turn my mess into a message of hope to many... Every situation is SO different. In fact I share the reality of a chaotic household from a child's perspective to invite the reader to consider that there are many possible, alternative outcomes to any situation. I do not know how many people plan to divorce after getting married, well I didn't. That's why the reality of an impending divorce and a feeling of failing had me in its grip for years during a physically and emotionally abusive marriage. Even more, it was a foreign concept to me to seek a way out of it, because as a Christian, divorce did not seem to be a "right alternative or choice." In this book, I invite you to explore with me my struggles, mental health, confusion and ultimately, my journey into clarity and freedom, choice and mental well-being, not just for me, but for my children as well. In the book, one of the children writes about the environment in the home and its impact on them. Follow our journey to mental well-being as you will find my eldest child, Dami and I on YouTube in a BBC documentary called "I Blame My Parents" - anxiety and me, aired 20/01/19. Thank you for buying my book. It is my sincere prayer that you will find hope, peace and forgiveness as you read and share this book :)
