on callings and plans and the uniqueness of God's plan for each of us...

What has God placed in your heart to do for the Kingdom?

What is that burning desire that pursues you into your dreams at night?

What have you been called to do for Jesus?

Do you know?  I pray desperately that you do {or that you are at least praying for God to reveal it to you}!

'Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time.
He has planted eternity in the human heart,
but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.'
Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NLT)

For me, God has placed a burning passion for women--of all ages, backgrounds, shapes and sizes--in my heart.  I want women the world over {and right in my own community} to know how passionately Christ loves them.  I want women to know they are not alone in their struggles and disappointments and failures.  I want to cheer them on, rally behind them, offer up prayers on their behalf, and encourage them to pursue Jesus like their lives depend on it.  Because it does.  Their lives depend on Jesus.

I want women to look towards the Cross, be beckoned to their knees and cling tight-fisted to the promises of Truth. 

God continues to reveal bits and pieces of His calling on my life.  Part of that revelation is starting to take form in my heart and soul and I hope to share portions of it with you in the coming weeks.  But in the meantime, would you pray that I listen with open ears and an open heart?  Will you pray that I bow at the calling of Jesus and follow the direction that He is leading me? 

'Your very lives area  letter that anyone
can read by just looking at you.  Christ himself wrote it--
not with ink, but with God's living Spirit;
not chiseled into stone, but carved into human lives
--and we publish it.'
2 Corinthians 3:3

But most of all, will you fervently pray that He will be glorified and the Kingdom will move forward?

I pray you find encouragement here.  I pray you invite other women {and men, for that matter!} to this community so they can wallow in the adoringly glorious love of Christ and allow the sweet words of Truth to wash over their spirits.  Who do you think could benefit from some words of encouragement?  Cheer them along by inviting to join us. 

What has God called you to?

How can I pray for you and with you as you pursue your burning passion to grow the Kingdom?

Share with me, won't you?
