One year ago this month I did something I never thought I could do—write a weekly blog. Of all the people I’ve ever known in my lifetime ‘I’ would have voted me the Least Likely to do so. But God, has a way of taking our ‘Nevers’ and turning them into a blazing passion for “Forevers”.
I know you’ve heard this before, “If God can transform me…He can transform anybody.” So true of me and so true of you! The testimonies are endless how the Lord has done extraordinary things through ordinary people. Why? Because we are ordinary and He is extraordinary.
Thank you for encouraging me through this last year’s journey. I never really had an agenda for the week. God taught me to sit still (hardest part), in my chair, with fingers on the keyboard and wait for Him to tell me what to write.
Transformation has taken place in my own heart as I searched to hear His soft whisper, “This is what I would like for you to write…” I don’t know if I was more excited about what He was going to tell me or if I couldn’t wait to use it as an excuse to spend one-on-one time together.
My writing interest started years ago as I learned to journal my prayers and thoughts to Him in a pretty little book. I wanted record in order to have the opportunity to see where He’s taken me. One word sums it up—Amazing! Never did I dream He would ever use my poor decisions, pain, and sufferings, in order to glorify Himself even more. What a privilege to see how He works.
So with this, I write in this year’s final blog about transformation that I will move on to finish the ultimate “Never”…my book entitled, “Loving a Leaping Butterfly”. I desperately need your prayers as I open my heart so I can find God’s. ALL for His glory!
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
1 Corinthians 10:31
What is the first thing that pops into your mind when you finish this sentence; “I’ll never do…” What if God says, “Good, I’ll do it through you!”? Wouldn’t it be a double blessing to do something you never thought you could, then see how much it glorified Him because you were right?
PS Dawn, thank you for getting me off to a great writing start with the blog. Your sweet friendship and patience nudged me to do. Bless you! And, to all my precious Words for the Journey friends…you enabled me to imagine what God can and will do if we’re willing. Bless you too!
