Preparing for the Purpose

BB2F6775-EAA0-44E5-B875-CA93539CB0E0Years ago, the Lord first spoke to me and told me that I would write, and that many people would be saved through my writings. He has since given me a powerful testimony to share and revealed to my first book title, but I have struggled with not knowing how or where to even begin writing my testimony. A couple of days ago, I found myself beyond  frustrated after having spent hours searching for ideas on how to begin writing, searching for Christian publishers and literary agents. I decided I would leave it all in God’s hands and wait for him to send me someone to help—I was completely out of my league with this whole idea of writing a book. Maybe I would just pursue my Masters in Nursing degree—and stick to what I know!

A day later as I sat in Sunday’s service at church, I searched my emails and smiled as I came across my daily bible verse, “Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does” 1 Chronicles 16:24. I knew the Lord was speaking, but still I prayed for further confirmation. And boy did He deliver!

As the sermon ended, I made my way to the alter for prayer. The Holy Spirit had been moving strongly throughout our service, and I just needed to hear from God. And he delivered right on time, just as my heart had been desiring he would.

“I am waiting on You, you say you are waiting on me, but I am waiting on you to take a step of faith, as you take a step I will move with you.” 💜

Thank you Lord—that you never show up too early, and you never show up too late. Please give me the wisdom, courage and strength to fulfill all that you have called me to do. Even in fear—I will step out in Faith. This I pray in Jesus’ mighty  name.
