Why "𝑀𝑎𝑤 𝐽𝑜𝑢𝑟𝑛"?
Maw Journ was created in March 2020 after I had a long talk with God about the plans for my life. Of course, after losing both my parents, I did not think I had much living to do. I felt like I had no purpose for life. So I asked God, "what is it that you want me to do?" God revealed everything to me that night through a dream. The next morning when I woke, it was crazy how I remembered every scripture that God had given me. So, I got the bible and started writing.
After writing the scriptures out and putting them in order, I was still confused as to what God was trying to say. So, I sent the list of scriptures to my aunt, my cousin, and one of the Pastors at my church. Every one of them said, "Miranda, you are being called. Just wait, God has something planned for you." Now at the time, I was scared, unsure, and still confused as to why God would call me. I did not understand why God waited until my parents were gone to reveal this to me. It was not making any sense.
So, after much prayer, fasting, and hearing the voice of God and His instructions. I came up with the platform Maw Journ. MAW are my initials and JOURN is short for Journey. I wanted to share my journey with others while also encouraging them. I always needed encouragement and someone to just talk to, but no one stayed there consistently with me.
When my parents passed, family and friends were there for the moment and weeks later, I barley would hear from them. October makes year three since my father passed and I still could use someone to talk to and uplift me during these hard three months. But instead I decided that I was ready to start this platform over and continue to encourage other women. I learned that encouraging others, keeps me encouraged as well. I want to do what God instructs me to do by being obedient and uplifting his children with an encouragement from MAW.
Today, is my father's birthday, he would have been 71 years old. So I launched my website as a gift to him. This is me reintroducing myself and committing back to my calling as an encourager, blogger, and a friend. Maw Journ is here to stay and to do what it is her Father wants her to do. Follow, subscribe, and like to be in the know of what Maw has to say. Be encouraged and know that you are not alone.
