Today is my first Friday Spotlight Blog post!! Today I’m shining the light on an amazing Woman of God!!! She’s a mother, a business owner, a deliverance and spiritual warfare minister!! Her name is Eboni Rufus and here’s HerTestimony.
When the World says “No”, God says “Yes”.
I know this saying all so well! I was raised by my mom and had a praying grandma. I am a faith driven woman through my personal relationship with God. I have made a lot of mistakes in life, but God’s grace kept me and then built my muscle. At the age of 19, I got pregnant with my oldest son. LITTLE DID I KNOW THEN THAT THIS WOULD SAVE MY LIFE SPIRITUALLY. I was in college and was blessed with a talent of doing nails. I worked in a salon and had a large clientele. The people around me thought that my life would come to a screeching halt, but God knew this was just the beginning for me. It was time to “Woman Up”! My life took a sudden turn; it seemed as if anything that could go wrong did. Relationships,money, etc. Bamm! What do I do now? Determined to finish school, I pressed on. I knew that I never wanted to work in corporate America. I made a promise to myself that I would not allow myself to be influenced by people who told me to drop out of school and get on social services and live according to what society thought a Black young female should. I knew that wasn’t God’s will for me. I fell on my knees and prayed to God. LORD PLEASE HELP ME! GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO MAKE IT WITH YOU and show the world that with you all things are possible. It was a nice day and my mom kept asking me to go to this woman’s conference at my home church. I wasn’t going to go but then the spirit led me to go. On the way there I got a speeding ticket and almost turned around. I pressed on. I was about 6 months pregnant and the speaker Rev. Sybil Jones laid hands on my stomach, prayed and prophesied over me and my baby boy. She said that God had an amazing future for me and my children of the future. The last thing I knew, they were picking me up off the floor. She told me to study the Prayer of Jabez and gave me my first journal. That changed my life. I will be 40 this year, with 3 sons ages 25 (stepson), 19 and 17 and 2 beautiful girls age 9 and 1. To this very day, I still journalize every morning and night. Habakkuk 2:2
It is through my journal that the Lord has spoken to me and instructed me to do things that only with Him could ever be done!
I must say that journalizing keeps your mind fixed on your conversation with God because your mind is focusing on writing and listening to him. Your mind has a better chance of focusing on him.
I am BLESSED to testify that No weapons formed against me prospered Isaiah 54:17.
I graduated from college, married and raised my children as a family with a supportive father and husband in the home. Started multiple successful salons, never having to get a loan to this very day. Partnered with awesome mentors, owner of successful cosmetology school/spas, traveling celebrity nail technician, instructor for large nail companies. Invested in real estate, became a real estate agent. Owner/Associate Broker of a successful real estate company.
My biggest failure was when my husband and I opened a club in North Carolina. It did great for a while then we got caught up in the fame of having a club, the money and the wild life, which went against our business plan. We were out of line with God. It cost us our business, our marriage and our home. You name it,we lost it. Parting was devastating to us and the kids. We were broken and lost.
Then is when I truly experienced GOD’S GRACE!!
I focused on Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through God that strengthens me”.
I knew I had to pick myself up and “WOMAN UP” because I had my kids that needed me to survive. I brushed my shoulders off and started once again. On my knees, journalizing and believing God’s promises I relocated my salon, opened another Men’s Spa, and was still able to Co-own my real estate company. With God all things are possible. Your thoughts become things, all you have to do is think positive thoughts and put all your Focus on God. I am a living testimony that when all the odds were against me. I put my trust in God and the sky has been the limit. I am no better than anyone reading this. This is your time to make a difference and show the world how good God is. We have the same blood running through us and the same 24 hours in a day. Get up and make it happen! Don’t let the enemy have you bound and thinking you can’t do it because again, “you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you”.
I am currently working on a huge project that I will be launching next year! Stay tuned.
