This is the face of a girl who still has much to learn.
A girl who has stood on whatever piece of truth she can manage to find, yet still at times stepping back onto broken, hopeless places like striving, control, self-focus and idol making.
Left to myself, I can take a good thing like Fitness or healthy eating or social media or financial security and then turn it into a ‘god’ thing (=idol). .
Left to myself I will always get it wrong.
I’ll make it about me.
About my plans and my purposes.
Although I don’t yet know what word the Lord is giving me for 2018, I know this:
it’s not about me.
He’s calling me to disciple women, leading and teaching not for the sake of growing a platform, a class, or a membership community, but for the cause of knowing Him more.
I’m going to get it wrong some. .
I’ll keep doing my best to set my gaze on Him and on the path He’s put before me.
But, I’m going to need you to remind me when I get off track.
I’m going to need you to help me GET better when I’m stuck and not just feel better in the moment.
I’m going to need you to link arms with me and to help me to not quit.
When and if you need me, I’m ready to cheer you on.
To pray you through.
To remind you of the gifting the Lord has poured inside of you.
To hold your arms up if you get weary and to keep telling you that the battle belongs to the Lord.
We truly ARE better together, and I’m grateful for you.
