I have missed writing to you all very much. I recently read my previous blog post before my break (keep-dreaming-keep-believing.html). I think it's very interesting that the last post that I published focused on never giving on your dreams. Soon afterwards, I felt so heavily in my heart the need to lay down the very dream that God has given me. I believe it's so important to take a pause occasionally. I honestly didn't anticipate taking a pause from blogging. Although I didn't want to, I know the importance of being obedient to God. I was reminded of the importance of continuing to pursue my dreams even during busy seasons of life. I believe these past 6 months have been a growing season for me! Ladies, can I let you in on what’s been going on in my life?
One of the greatest lessons that I learned during my time of fasting from the blog (I guess you can say it was a fast) was to put all my trust in God alone. I believe God placed it on my heart to take a pause with my blog to refocus on Him and what He’s calling me to do. Was it easy? Absolutely not! I was so tempted to make things fit the way that I believe that they should fit. Finally, I decided to trust that I was hearing from God and put the very thing that I believed was going well on the altar.
These past few months, I’ve been more involved in ministry at my local church, where I’m also attending a 2-year leadership program. This journey of learning and growing in God has helped me in more ways than I ever imagined. I’m reminded of how God may ask us to place a good thing down to follow His leading to grow in other areas of our lives. As I think about it, it’s amazing!
I can sense that God is calling me back to my gift of writing to you lovely ladies (Oh yes, it’s time). I'm excited to get back into writing to each of you beautiful souls. I believe that God has given me more direction of where He wants to take this blog.
So what is the vision that God has given me for this blog? I believe God has sent me to your social media, web browser or however you’re reading this post, to share some good news with women across this world. I believe this blog represents the dreams that God has birthed in my heart to encourage women from all walks of life. Truthfully, without God, this blog is just simply words on a screen. But with God, I believe He can meet the needs of every woman who comes in contact of this blog. My heart’s desire is to allow God to use me in such a way that will cause women to know who they are in Christ.
To the women who are reading this blog post, God has something so special in store for you. You are here in this Earth because God needed someone to share something that only you can share with the world. I’m living for the moment to hear God say, “Job well done, my daughter. You did all that I had planned for you to do”. What will you passionately pursue? What is the thing that God is telling you to put down to follow hard after Him? I encourage you to listen and follow God’s leading. It’s time to start fresh as we move into this new year.
Always remember that God chose you:
“You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.” John 15:16
p.s. I’m looking forward to growing in God with you ladies during the upcoming new year! Please leave a comment below with a prayer request that you have, I would love to cover you in prayer. 😊
