I am starting to dream again. I am starting to gaze through the grey and see sunshine and possibilities in the clouds! Yet, I believe it's more than mere possibilities, I believe its the edges of the reality of who and what I am.
I have learned a lot. God has given me mooch-o much, that I can't hoard - hoarding kills life. So, I want to share all HE has given me and proclaim that HE DOES give life abundantly. He has created us to live... to glorify and honor our Maker.
That is what I intend to do, starting now.
Since you are trekking with me, you have seen my journey, my "a-ha" moments and dismal days. I have fought many years to "find" my purpose and calling, all the while believing that I (we all) have a significant purpose in being here, now!
So I am following some advice that has come my way, it lies at the core of what I believe in... but I have lacked the guts to follow.
From this day forward, I am moving towards what gives me life and energy and laying down the white flag on all other endeavors which have drained me of joy.
No more defining "life is hard" because hard is letting circumstances define my days; hard says I am weak. In some respect, yes, I a very weak but I believe through Christ, I am more than a conquerer, I am strong in Him and who He designed me to be. Now, when I try to be something I am not... well, that is weak, that is hard.
This evening a dear friend shared a website with me, someone who uses her passions to fuel her living - monetarily and significantly. I read a few things on her site, and this blog post about NOT FIGHTING rings true in me.
I have faced down a lot of fears in me, the lie that states "I am not enough" or "I am not acceptable" - Through the truth of who God says I am:
Today, I am choosing to live in my Maker's Design of me - His Daughter, His beloved child - forgiven, chosen, blessed.
Won't you join me?
