One of the authors that I have connected with over the past 3 years is Tia McCollors.
Tia writes Christian fiction and non-fiction, devotionals, attends book club reviews, gives speaking presentations, and so much more. She is also one of my wonderful school moms who is a joy to be around!
Tia’s books are engaging, encouraging, and enlightening. They take you through real life situations with relatable characters.
One of my favorite non-fiction readings of Tia’s is her devotional If These Shoes Could Talk. In it she gives daily readings that inspire you in your walk with the Lord. Some of her writings have me thinking ‘is she stalking my life’ because I see some of the pebbles (I will not call them stumbling blocks) in my life in many of Tia’s writings.
Within If These Shoes Could Talk, there is an affirmation that speaks to some of my favorite Biblical scriptures and references. This prayer/affirmation speaks of the path on which I walk my life and Tia put in perfect order.
This prayer/affirmation is tacked to my mirror for daily reading. I would like to share it with you in Share Prayer Day 4. May it Bless you as it has blessed me…
I am the head and not the tail.
My children will rise up and call me blessed.
They shall be taught of the Lord and have great peace.
The heart of my husband trusts in me.
We are blessed in our going in and our coming out.
I am like a tree planted by the rivers of water.
The Lord will satisfy me with long life.
