Feb 2021 Update....
I began this blog in the summer of 2019... published pretty steadily, guided by the Lord, for several months before getting side tracked by the plandemic, the death of a friend and the subsequent fall / head injury of her husband, who by the grace of God, became my ward (for lack of a better word).
The Lord has been speaking to me again to get back on track with my writing as He has much to say to His people. I have begun to realize that distractions and "life" have been keeping my busy, too busy and I have been ignoring His call, again. Surprisingly a few weeks ago, my husband invited me to attend a bible study with him at a friend's house in our neighborhood. I immediately agreed (cause my husband generally does not initiate things for us to do together) and we attended day one of "Four Keys to Hearing the Voice of God".
Personally, I have never really had any trouble hearing God, when I decide to actually listen, but I was happy to have Matt initiate something for us to do together. The last thing I expected was for the fourth key to be journaling! Talk about a kick in the head! Ok, Lord, I thought immediately. I hear you! Loud and Clear! I'll start writing again. So here I sit... Praising God for His forgiveness and mercy and patience.
The beginning of the story... (July 2019)
The Lord is speaking through my writing... I mean typing. My fingers type as the words flow into my mind. He has been telling me to do this for months and for no good reason I have been avoiding it. On a recent road trip, I was listening to Rachel Hollis’ Girl Wash Your Face and she posed a question about gifts from God.... has “it / they” affected anyone? I said out loud, without thought, “not yet”.
I was shocked when I heard the words. I didn’t even think them! The Lord spoke it through me. Confirming what He has been telling me for months, that I need to be, am supposed to be, writing for Him. That those words will have an impact. That I need to trust Him and sit my tuckus down and write every day.
When I wondered about the outlet, He’s been nudging me toward a blog. So here I am, blogging for the Lord!
I pray that these words will find their way to you, when you need them and you will know that God is here for you, in every moment every day.
