Denise’s last words were inspiring:
boy it is not fun suffering in this body of weak flesh… but Jesus is straightening out all my crooked places.
So pray for me now for i am believing in complete healing of this body longing to be healed made whole my heart..I have my vision, i keep it close. I repent daily my sins, my faults and my shortcomings. He has brought me out of so many fires, oh so many, 23 years alive after the doctors pronounced i would be dead way back then 1992…I lift my head up high to the sky and do thank my Jesus that He has kept me thus far and even as much as this body would love to be with Tho my testimonies, some hard and some dangerously painful are all unto the glory of the Lord. i am learning continuous obedience always hoping for change to become who He is… thru all my sufferings …And my King has made my heart soft…My very first prayer on my deathbed to Jesus was” Do whatever it takes to save me, just don’t let me die…Whatever it takes, make my heart whole…He is busily working on me…If you are suffering thru something right now i lift you to Jesus ..may He preserve you and keep you unto His heavenly kingdom and may you endure thru your change in Him…He knows what it takes to break us, make us deliver us into His Holy hands amen…Make our hearts Whole amen
Denise had turned her heart and mind to Jesus. I had the blessing of speaking with her. She knew Christ and was doing his work. If you read Nikki Sixx’s ‘Heroin Diaries’ you saw a little of her humor.
As a young girl she was my Beyonce, my Rhianna. She was the daring woman who challenged the strength of womanhood. When she was Donja Deering I took martial arts classes. When she was Laura in The Last Dragon I was able to see beauty and dreams.
She wrote in her book inscribed to me:
Dream big.. stay near Jesus.
Thanks Denise. Rest Well. She was 57.
