We all can remember a scenario that made us uncomfortable. That awkward moment when something out of the ordinary occurs and we are not exactly sure how to react. Our internal reflex seems to go haywire. Not knowing the appropriate response, we often remain silent and blush, or we blurt out something even more inappropriate to make the situation that much worse. Or perhaps we just retreat from the situation altogether, leaving someone else to face the tension and break the ice.  Can I be honest with you? I truly despise these scenarios.

Take the City has had a huge impact on me and my daughter. When God led me from one place, this door was wide opened. I had the great ability to experience more of God and see the signs that follow them that believed. *Mark 16:17-20*

The people I've met have showed soooooo much love to us and I'm grateful for that. Not only do they teach on truth, but they walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and encourage others around them to do so also!
God has also allowed me to be a part of a ministry as well.
I want to say thank you thank you God first and thank you to Take the City!!❤
