Hello and welcome. I am Destine. I was born in Guyana, South America but now reside in the Caribbean island of Antigua. When I was 10 yrs old, I surrendered my life to Christ and ever since have had a hunger and thirst to know him. This desperation has driven me over the years to pursue the purposes of God for my life relentlessly. The more I pursued him, the more he revealed himself to me. Eventually, he helped me to stop making excuses and I began writing what he was teaching me. I fought with the arguments in my head, which kept saying I was not qualified to be an author, but God assured me that he is the one who validates and qualifies me. God has a plan and purpose for each of us.
I am convinced that he changes us to be the agents of change in every sector of society, which means we must make positive inputs in our family, community, work, and nation. It is not enough to desire change, but we have to make deliberate efforts to impact the lives of others by our lifestyle. For those of us who confess Christ to be our Lord and Saviour, he commands us to go and make disciples by teaching them the gospel of the Kingdom. Writing is one of my ways of going and teaching the gospel. Over the years, the Holy Spirit has instructed and energized me to write as he reveals the reality of the Kingdom to me. I have gone through and still go through many challenges in my life, but I have learned and continue to learn how to appreciate and embrace challenges as the Father's tools in perfecting me. It is from this position of submission to the processing of the Father that I write. In the middle of the fires, the Holy Spirit gives me an understanding of the word of God as is needed at the time and reveals strategies that help me to navigate successfully through it all.
I have a passion for seeing people grow and become who God wants them to be. I am convinced that you can receive and enjoy all that God has for you in your lifetime. The God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Elijah, the apostles, and many others is the same today and forever.
God is looking for vessels he can use, people who will proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom without seeking to get wealthy from it. Christ commanded his disciples to give as they have freely received. I write with Kingdom advancement as my motivation. It is not about me, but it is about his will being done on the earth as it is in Heaven. I am learning to continually wait on the Holy Spirit for revelation on what to write. He often teaches me practical ways of applying the principles of the Kingdom to my everyday life and situations. Whatever he teaches, I write because I want to see the people of God not only receive information but come into “Truth.”
You are important to God, and you are important to me. As the Holy Spirit teaches me, I teach you. Deuteronomy 29:29 is one of the motivations for me when writing:
29 The secret things belong unto the Lord our God, but the things which are revealed belong to us and our children forever, that we may do all of the words of this law. Deuteronomy 29:29 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
Whatever he reveals, I am responsible for applying it to my life and transferring to others as God's representative on the earth. You are not here by accident. You do not have to allow your past and the opinions of others to shape your life and control your destiny. Do not ever settle for less than God's best for you. God has sent me here to help as his Spirit leads me, and I am available if you would like to contact me. I love reading and am encouraged by your comments and emails. If you have any questions or need advice, please feel free to message or email me. I receive your emails directly and will respond as soon as I possibly can.

Also, I invite you to be a part of our "In The Spotlight" initiative, where we recognize and celebrate what God is going in the lives of ordinary extraordinary people like you. To be featured in this section, email me a testimony of what God has done for you, a piece you wrote or composed (poem, devotional entry, or song), along with a profile picture of yourself. One submission will be selected per month and will remain on my Homepage for one month. "In The Spotlight" is your way of sharing the gospel of the Kingdom with others. Your submission will not be misused or sold but posted on this site and my Facebook page. I also invite you to connect with me on Facebook.
