LaTyna Jalieba (Tyna) was working in her chosen field of nursing, proceeding toward a terminal degree and a corporate position. That's when God spoke to her audibly, saying, "That's not it."
That small word from the Lord, Jalieba tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of the Greenelines podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network, served as the catalyst that moved her into full-time prophetic deliverance ministry—despite the flaws and failures she saw as holding her back.
At first, she questioned God, Jalieba says. "I thought this was it, which is why I worked so hard to be here," she told Him. But the Lord soon let her know what He had for her as a kingdom entrepreneur. "And that's where I began to receive all of the downloads for what has gotten me to where I am and where I'm going," she says.
While still working full time and doing ministry part time, she experienced something shocking: a layoff. "I had never in my life been laid off, and most people had told me the lie that, because I was a nurse, I would always have a job," Jalieba says. "And so I was devastated, actually traumatized... [but] what the devil tries to use for your harm still turns around for your good, because it catapulted me further into purpose."
But God took her through a process on the way to full-time ministry, she says. Jalieba says she calls her ministry "Flawed and Free" because she felt so ill-equipped to serve others but knew she was called and chosen.
"I felt ill-equipped because there were so many things that I experienced in my past that made me feel as if I was not properly prepared, and not good enough for the ministry," she says. "And so the Lord gave me literally out of my sleep one day, the name of "Flawed and Free," because He gave me John 8:36, 'For whom the Son has set free is truly free indeed.'
"And He began to explain my freedom in Christ, my freedom in Him, and that what I was in the past, was no longer who I was in the present," Jalieba says. "And the way that He saw me was how I was created in the Spirit. And so He needed me to come out of agreement with the flaws and the failures of my past, and He wanted to meet me in the space of the present, so that I could then fulfill His plan and the promises that He had already released to me in the Spirit. And so Flawed and Free was birthed.
