Here I sit at the airport with about one and a half hours before I board… first to Dallas and then onto St. Louis where my sweet niece-in-love, Melissa, will pick me up for the drive to Quincy... the town I grew up in. I am blessed to be able to make this journey as my nephew Matt so graciously provided the tickets with his air miles… otherwise I would not be able to be there to celebrate my sister Margie’s, 60th birthday on January 1st.
Another known adventure for this coming year is refining my focus on speaking. I have finally decided to quit arguing with God and fully surrender to this call on my life. He opened opportunities this last fall that spoke deeply to my soul, including giving the Sunday morning message at my church with response that could not have happened apart from God’s anointing. So I will spend January completing my Speakers Packet and Video as well as listing my contact information with organizations I am already associated with... as well as pursuing listings with others. As you know... many of God’s promises are provisional… throughout the Bible we see where God says “you do this and then I’ll do that”… and I believe He has said if I will step out in faith and do my part in this, He will do His by opening the perfect opportunities for me to proclaim His heart to today’s woman.
I have a few other irons in the fire but I am learning that I cannot multi-task like I used to so I need to continue to seek the Lord to know which irons I need to leave in the fire and which ones to let go of!
One thing is for sure… there is no such thing as boredom with God as our Way, Truth and Life! May we all be encouraged to seek God day by day as the new year begins…to learn to walk by faith and not by sight… trusting in a God who loves us more deeply than we can even begin to comprehend.
