A few weeks ago, I was prompted to write "Journey to Easter" series that's been posting on Fridays (and the adjoining weekends). It was risky for me. I'm not used to putting my faith center stage. But once the Lord planted the seed, those posts have seemed to write themselves. An increasing number of folks have been stopping by to read the series. I can't wait to see where the "Journey to Easter" series may take us!
In the upcoming days, I am excited to be going to two new schools for "Read & Gives". It started with a prompting to read a story and give each student a copy of Life with Bobby and Bonnie in Annalyn's class. Then the Lord opened doors to two classrooms in another school across town. That's opportunities to give the gospel to over sixty children! And I've been told there's even more who want Bobby, Bonnie and me to come for a visit.
Here's where I made my mistake. I thought the "gift" was writing. I was wrong! The gift that keeps on giving is the Holy Spirit. Jesus promised us, "The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and make you remember all that I have told you." (John 14:26 GNT)
I think God wants us to be partners in His will. "And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you if you heed the voice of the Lord your God." (Deuteronomy 28:2 AMPC) He surely has been overtaking me lately!
The deeper I go into the stream, seeking and listening to God's will, the better it gets! The more I chase after Him, the more He inspires me. So many ideas chasing around in my head and heart, I can hardly keep up!
What's God calling you to do? If it's God, it's got to be terrific!
I'll be sharing this post on Crystal's website and Kelly's blog this week.
