I’m Daeyna (Dee) Jackson and welcome to She Is A Message Ministries.
If you’re new to She Is A Message, I wanted to come say hi and tell you a little bit about me and what I do here.
She Is A Message isn’t just a podcast and it isn’t just a blog. It’s a little bit of both and it’s taken me quite some time to figure this all out. When I first started writing, I realized that I loved to talk just as much as I liked to write so now I’ve combined both of my passions into one medium that I can be truly proud of.
My story started all the way back in 2016. After my divorce, I really slid down the rabbit hole of sin, shame and depression.
I did whatever I wanted, with whoever I wanted, all in an attempt to feel wanted, desired and loved. Everything I thought I would never do as a Christian I ended up doing that and more. Lying, stealing, cheating, suicidal tendencies, addiction to porn. You name it. I did it.
In my mind, this was the end of the story. This was my mess and now I’d lie in it.
Thank God that God has other plans.
Thank God that God was still holding the pen.
It’s taken me all of four years to truly understand even a piece of what God had in store for me all those years ago when He allowed me to go through my marriage, divorce and the aftermath of it all. And I couldn’t be more thankful.
Through this blogcast, I want to inspire and encourage women (and any men that wanna join) who have been through dark times and have gone down those dark roads. I want to help you to believe that there is still hope for you. There is still a chance to be who God desired for you to be from the very beginning.
And yeah, you might have been the worst person. You might have done the most abysmal things. But that does not disqualify you from being used, renewed and transformed by God.
God has saved me from lust, pornographic addiction, same-sex attraction, sexual addiction, suicidal tendencies and so much more.
So trust when I say that if God can change me; the sinner, the shameful, the unforgivable, then God can change you too.
It’s not the easiest road.
It’s not the most fun.
But it’s worth it.
Every soul that I get to touch with a podcast episode or a blog post reminds me that it’s all worth it.
Am I perfect? No.
Do I still stumble and fall daily? I do.
Does that change the way that God sees and loves me? No, not at all.
God loves you so much that He sent His one and only son to die for a world that, for the most part, didn’t care and that still doesn’t.
My aim with She Is A Message is to show you that God uses everything- the good, the bad, the downright disgusting- for your good and for His glory.
You just need to trust Him.
So stick around.
Listen to a podcast episode or five.
Read a blog post.
Change your life.
Develop the gifts that God has given you. (1 Peter 4:10-11)
Then go out there and change other lives.
All my love.
