One of life's most exciting choices...is full surrender to Christ.
And....then letting God work His full potential in your heart. I am exploring the gift of writing that He has given and has confirmed over and over during the past year. I have answered the call of obedience to put pen to paper, or put fingers to keyboard and write a book. This is HUGE to me. I feel like David when he was facing his giant.
I am at the writer water's edge....gathering my gumption...looking at my own reflection staring back at me. I am mesmerized as I blindly search for some rocks of God's faithfulness that I can stick in my pocket...hoping I only need one Rock to take this giant fear down. The biggest step is forward, the biggest fear is myself.
I really don't know how to do this...and that's what makes it so intimidating. I don't know how it's going to turn out, but I am willing to try. I do know though it won't be perfect. That is a hurdle I've had to overcome in this process of writing my story to you. I was wanting to write a perfect story, wrapped up in nice box with a pretty pink bow on top. I kept waiting and waiting for it to look like I thought it should, when God dropped this in my heart.
"Why would I want you to write a perfect story? That has already been written.
No, I want you to write your story. The story I am still perfecting in you."
My response was one of doubt and dismay. Why would anyone want to hear a broken and my not-so-pretty tale?
Because it's His-story perfected in me.
You have one too. If I have learned anything in my walk of faith, God can take your uglies and perfect His beautiful. The journey of God wrapping His story in my life in a nice-sweet-tidy-little package with a perfect pink bow is the exciting part. God is changing me as His redeeming love penetrates my heart. The more I hideout in His word, the more I want to be like Him.
It's a story that's too good not to share.
