Welcome to my blog! My name is Ciara Leilani. Thank you for visiting my blog ya’ll. I’m sincerely honored to have you spend a few moments of your time here with me. For starters, I encourage you to visit the, My Story tab under the About section as it will explain how this blog came about and why I am passionately sharing what I share. I tell how far the Lord has brought me. It’s time to put Kingdom over Culture. When we see people from a Kingdom mindset, we see them as souls who have an eternity and not the many categories of faults the world has created. We are all individual souls called by Christ to represent his purpose in the earth before eternity reaches our doorsteps. The world has no answer for humanity’s woes, only The Light on The Hill does. That’s us, the true Body of Christ. I believe wholeheartedly that all true ministry comes out of intimacy with Jesus Christ. That is where my blog was birthed out of, true intimacy with Jesus through prayer and fasting. I envision my blog being one continuous love letter from God’s heart to his people. I am confident each time you check in, you will read refreshing posts carefully drafted to build you up by way of inspiration, conviction and divinely inspired words of wisdom.
One might say, knowledge is information gathered through various means, i.e. surroundings, experiences, education, influences while wisdom is how to apply that knowledge. I believe wisdom is a spiritual gift from God. All kinds of gifts are handed out by the Holy Spirit, and to all kinds of people. He has imparted gifts to you so that his Kingdom might be advanced in the here and now. The Holy Spirit gives some the spiritual gift of wisdom to impart the truth and understanding to those who believe and to those who do not. The goal is to bring an awareness of the Kingdom of God to our everyday lives. This awareness should provoke us to respond by devoting ourselves to learn to do good. We should; seek justice for the oppressed, correct false teaching; bring affirmation to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause and work hard to be a solution to the problems we see all around us. Wisdom doesn’t end with knowledge, but is expressed in transformed hearts and lives.
“There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,” 1 Corinthians 12:4-8 NIV
This blog is undoubtedly a work of the Holy Spirit in my new life as a believer and follower of Jesus Christ. No one had to tell me there was a fight for my soul between the Kingdom of Light and Kingdom of Darkness. I carried the chains of bondage for twenty-years over my soul before finally surrendering to Jesus. Without hesitation he set this captive free through his mercy and grace. Because of the power of his blood, the chains of demonic bondage and shackles of shame were exchanged for a Robe of Righteousness. Now through the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit, I am boldly testifying personally to the world around me to what the Word of God says the blood of Jesus does for us.
Wherever you are in your walk with Christ whether you’re at the starting line or on your last leg of the journey called life, let’s join together on this journey as we, the people of God, grow closer to His will. At times, my heart will be exposed as I write words of confirmation, warnings and even the soft whispers God speaks directly to my spirit for you. My prayer for you, the reader is to be filled with the spirit of wisdom and revelation, learn to believe beyond hope, and that you undoubtedly learn to walk in freedom in Jesus Christ daily. So check out every section, keep an eye out for upcoming events, and especially revisit archived posts. Those are the juiciest ones yet! It is my sincere hope that my blog is a place for you to be encouraged and challenged to go deeper with Jesus Christ. I’m excited to do life with you and welcome you into my little world as a mouthpiece for God to this generation. May the Lord prosper you along the path of His will all the days of your life.
