Do you ever wake up some mornings with the fire in your belly. No, I'm not talking heartburn, I'm talking excitement! Purpose! Well today was that day for me. I have been writing for years, never sure what God's plan was for my work.
Jeremiah 29:11 says "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
I have known for a long time that God wants to use the gift of writing for His purpose for a long time, so hear I am, Lord! Send me! I am a full time working mother of one amazing two year old, Grace, and wife to a hard working husband, Dennis, who is following his dreams and encouraging me to follow mine. And by encouraging I mean harrassing daily...
At any rate, we are given special talents that God wants us to use and share with the world. For years I thought that meant I had to move to Africa and be a missionary because I had a gift of being friendly. Clearly misguided (although some of you do feel the call on your life to be a missionary and Africa) through prayer and waiting on God, I now know that I was meant to share through my writing. Which is extremely relieving because giant bugs and heat are not my thing. I need coffee and retail therapy for survival.
My heart has always been in words, from a child I was writing books and reading books. God gave me a passion. God gave you a passion too, He wants you to use it for Him. If you aren't sure what your passion is, come with me on this journey. We can walk together as I prayerfully work through the passion God gave to me and help you find the excitement and gifts that God gave to you. I encourage you to pray, seek His wisdom and read His word. He will reveal to you guidance and step by step, we will living out our purposes. FYI - I'd be careful following too closely to me, I've been known to be clumsy. Wouldn't want you to get hurt.
