Every one of us has faced weakness in at least one area of our lives. God promises to be our strength in the midst of whatever weakness we face. Our frailties don’t have to stop us from going to where God wants to take us. Through these times, we must choose to embrace the divine strength that has been provided for us.
Ranae Kai, a Bermudian author, and coach shares with us her transformational journey from weakness to strength. Take a peek into this journey in the interview below.
Q: Tell us a little about yourself and your endeavors.
A: Ranae Kai’s passion is coaching others to experience optimal health in their daily lives, focusing on peace and strength. She leads with an approach of looking good, and feeling better. She also values wholeness and offers specialized programs and services to obtain a fit mind, fit body(internal and external), and fit soul.
Ranae Kai is a new author. Her book Jewel: Restoring Hidden Treasures Through Christ was written to empower women while in their single season and desiring sexual purity. An aha moment was when she realized she had been sexually abstinent for 6 years, since having sex for 10 years. God soon confirmed to share this story with the world. She shares her transformational journey from sin(weakness) to strength.
Upon writing Jewel by God’s amazing grace, Ranae Kai has also created a Sexual Purity 101 Program. Ranae Kai also offers 60 minute purity consults that encourage women to be bold in their faith and confident in their qualities.
Q: What inspires you to write and create?
A: God. I have learned to be a faithful and obedient child of God; life is beautiful this way.
Q: When did you first start writing? How old were you? How long have you been writing?
A: Truthfully, I have always written well when tasked with various assignments. Writing has been a natural way of expression for me. My visions and imaginations are vivid, therefore writing has been an enjoyable way to steward thoughts. Storytelling has been a great value to me, whether learning from someone or sharing through conversation.
Though in becoming an author, Jewel was the first time I started writing an actual book. And two months and two days later, by God’s grace, the manuscript for Jewel was complete.
I am naturally creative and am excited to continue to build God’s kingdom in this special way, inspiring other souls through my testimonials and revelations.
Q: What is your favorite bible verse or inspirational quote? Why?
A: I actually love the entire bible. However, I share this scripture as I believe it expresses God’s will for our lives perfectly. 3 John 1:2 : “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
Q: Has there ever been a time where you felt you had writer’s block? Explain.
A: No. Writing Jewel was a beautiful experience. I encountered God on many levels as I downloaded His direction and enjoyed listening to praise and worship music while completing His assignment.
Q: If you could meet with anyone influential for 10 mins who would that be?
A: First Lady Leslie Osei. Although by God’s amazing grace I had the opportunity to meet with her in December 2020 and experience Kingdom Full Tabernacle International Ministries(KFT), I would love another moment of 10 mins to thank her for her life changing leadership.
Tiphani Montgomery is also a wonderful woman of God and although we briefly met online at her Millions 2020 Virtual Conference, I look forward to meeting her in person in the near , near future at a Covered by God ministry meeting.
Q: What do you want your readers gain from your writing?
A: I want readers to be empowered to live a pure(purer) lifestyle – spiritually, sexually, physically, emotionally, and mentally. I desire readers to understand that they too can prosper and obtain pure health as they acknowledge their value in Christ, and follow God’s lead to fulfill their glorious destiny.
I have been sexually abstinent for 7 years, while delivered and restored favorably, so readers also should know that with God all things are possible no matter what.
Q: Have you ever gone through a very challenging and/or difficult situation that tested your faith greatly? Explain.
A: Yes and no while writing Jewel. I had no interest in ever sharing this testimony, nor writing a book to share it. The thought was challenging for a split second. Although, only because one, I didn’t understand the value of testifying prior to ongoing revelations at this time or two and I couldn’t process me having to sit for a period to type at a computer.
However, within days, I smiled, surrendered, and glorified God for desiring to use me in such a way. I truly believe that with God all things are possible.
God is too faithful. Often there are moments that He stretches my faith and always shows Himself great. #ElShaddai
Q: How have you overcome your challenges and difficulties?
A: Warfare prayers. Since encountering God on newer levels, and experiencing deliverance through KFT, I have gained revelation of the power in prayer. There is no challenge too big for God. With great obedience and surrender, I trust to conquer all challenges and difficulties by His mighty grace. God is my comforter(protector), redeemer(provider), deliverer, CEO, friend, restorer and strategist. While gaining revelation of His lionic nature. I rely on His Holy Spirit for all things.
Q: If you could encourage an upcoming creative or an aspiring writer, what would you tell them?
A: I would encourage them with a word God recently shared with me: worry about who He is not what you see. And in other words, fear God, not men. And in other words choose faith, not fear. With this being said, obey God with a pure heart in all humility. Be Godfident in the talents He has gifted you with, for He who began a good work in you, will bring it to fruition.
God is glorious in all His ways, and not by power, not by might, but by His Holy Spirit. We are graced to fulfill the desirable calling He has for us. Trust that as you seek first His Kingdom and righteousness all things will be added unto you, and His peace that vssurpasses all understanding will forever remain with you. Amen.
