Buds of Change

I don’t really know where to begin. I think it all started when I began reading Ann Voskamp’s 1,000 Gifts book. I felt like there was something The Lord was trying to do. I was not [and still am not] 100% sure of the message He is trying to communicate, but I know He is up to something.

She Reads Truth

The Lord is up to something. I prayed a lot and have been in a constant prayer mode for the past week that The Lord would use me – use this blog – to minister to others. That He change me so that I could make more of Him. That we could do something amazing together. I prayed that He would use me to minister to women, moms, wives, ladies that just need to know He hears. I don’t know what the future holds, but I am so excited to see what He is doing. Shaping. Molding.

I see a community rising up. I feel a fire in me, an excitement bubbling to the surface. I’m seeing purpose – something I have desperately begged God for. I’m seeing the buds of change, that I one day hope to see blossoming into a garden of His love and grace.

I always said to my husband that I would love to do what Beth Moore does. I love women. I love books. I love writing. I love all of you. The ones I know, the ones I don’t. The ones I used to talk to all the time, the ones I have yet to meet. I feel The Lord tugging at me, and I am excited to see for what.

    I’m so glad that you feel God doing something.

    Gosh, I really need to start reading your blog more! I’ve been so bad at reading blogs lately!

    I have felt similar recently. I just started reading Ann’s book as well and it is changing my heart, I also feel like the influence network has really inspired so many great bloggers out their to change which is causing me to be ‘influenced’ and changed by them as well. I am so glad we got to chat the other night and look forward to more meetings and getting to know each other.

    I have felt this way recently, as well. In prayer, I just want to say “Lord, could you just lay out the lesson for me so I’ll learn it? Just show me what you would have for me to do and I’ll do it!” But, that’s not how He works. I think He gives us one piece at a time so that we’ll have to take one step at a time. It causes us to fully rely on Him and constantly run back to the cross.

    P.S. I have said “I would love to do what Beth Moore does” before.
    P.P.S. Clicked over from The Influence Network forum… The discussion on blog design {something about being creative, but picky… LOL}. Anyway, it’s nice to “meet you”!
