I began blogging about one year ago. My passion for writing had been buried for years under mounds of anger and hurt. It began, not long after, God saved me from a physical death, and most importantly...a spiritual one. He removed the rubble of pain and uncovered a love that I had long forgotten about. In the process of this blog, He has awakened my heart and spirit, healing every inch of my once brokenness. He is still healing. I have been praying and pleading with God ever since, to somehow use me. "Send me Lord", has been my plea to Him. I never imagined that He would bring such greatness from a small little blog. I never imagined, or dreamed to be heading into a journey like this one. But, then again...God is the ultimate dream weaver.I was recently asked to be a part of a women's ministry at our church. I'm still in shock. I sometimes sit in awe of how God arranged this all to happen in the way that He did. He amazes me every day. So...my plea has been answered. My "Send me Lord" cry did not go unheard. He's sending me...he's sending me now. I've realized lately that the enemy really doesn't like it when we surrender our hearts fully to Christ. He despises it. He tries to work his way into our lives bringing a path of destruction with it. I've been in a battle for a few months now...in every way, shape and form. I was attacked from every direction. I now know why. He's trying to break me, but he won't. I'm happy to say...that the enemy once again, has lost his battle. He has not destroyed me or God's plan for me. It was a waste of his time. Sorry little guy... but, you lose. Yep..the enemy? He's a loser. He's even been whispering thoughts of doubt into my head, "You aren't cut out for this. What makes you think you can do this?" My response..."Awww...shutup devil! You are nothing but a stumbling block to me." Ya know...I kind of like that my simple existence makes the enemy nervous. I like the fact that when I wake up in the morning, ready and willing to do God's will...he trembles. Trembles. He trembles at the fact, that while he is attempting to sabotage my life, God is filling my cup to overflowing! So...I'm off on a new journey. I'm excited to be a part of such an awesome ministry. (Click on Joli Blog link on right side of page to visit) I am humbled to my core. I am looking forward to what God is going to do in the lives of hundreds of women (and men). I'm looking forward to what He will do in me as well. I know that this will bring me to a new place within the heart of my Father. A deeper more intimate place with Him. It's a new day! My cup runneth over! Dear God...thank you for hearing my prayer. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your servant. I am humbled and honored to be your daughter. Isaiah 43:18 Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. Deuteronomy 32:4 He is the Rock, His works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he. Psalm 85:12 The Lord wil indeed give what is good and our land will yield it's harvest. Psalm 37:5 Commit your way to the Lord, trust in him and he will do this; he will make your righteousness shine like the dawn.
