As I sit here with God, I began to write about something “I” wanted to write about (knowing that God wanted me to write about something totally different). I managed to get a title out and one sentence. It was so forced. I KNEW God wanted me to reveal my heart, but I didn’t want to listen. Needless to say, after that ONE sentence, I realized I wasn’t going to get anywhere, so I deleted it and am now writing about what God told me to.
In the world and out of this world, there’s always talk about people going through different “seasons” in life. Well, you’re about to hear about one of mine.
About a year and a half ago, I was asked to lead JC’s Girls, a ministry that reaches out to the adult entertainment ministry. I prayed about it, heard God say “Yes,” and stepped into His calling. It has been an amazing year and a half. Well, now, He’s calling me out of it.
Over the past few months, God has been placing me in contact with some incredible youth, so I’ve been pouring into their lives. Instead of pulling men and women out of the club, these kids will never step foot in one. I’m so excited for this new direction.
It’s not even a “new” direction. It’s an added one. I still work one-on-one with a lot of ladies and always will. I’ll always be an open book about my past and an open door for people to enter in and learn about freedom.
Even with this freedom, this last porn convention was the toughest on me spiritually, by far. It seemed to be in-your-face-this-is-who-you-used-to-be! I felt out of place. When I’m dancing with my flags, it’s a constant declaration of who I am now. God’s just doing amazing stuff: always has been…always will be.
As I live my life for God through this transition, some things need to happen.
Women need to show up for JC’s Girls. The whole idea of the ministry was to have a support group available for women to learn how to trust, a place to meet God, a place to be open. Lately, no one shows up.
The outreach team needs bodies. Right now, the co-leader (Janel) and I have been reaching out to the girls. Many of the clubs have closed their doors to us, but I believe that’s about to change, so we’ll need more hearts to love on the ladies.
There’re so many areas to help out in this ministry: intercession; social media; fundraising; etc. Our next bible study will be next Thursday, October 15th at 7:00 pm in Room 355 at the Rock Church in Point Loma. If you’re interested in being a part of this amazing ministry, attending the bible study is the first step.
Again, I’m not stepping away from leading the ministry yet…just making this known to anyone who may be interested in being a part of its future.
