Amazing things began to happen in my life when I started praying for God to do the impossible! After reading the book “Sun Stand Still” by Steven Furtick, I gained an entirely new outlook on life and my future in Christ. Living out my calling in Christ is no longer an “impossible”. Yet, so many times people recognize the desires God places in their heart, but they can’t seem to find a way to step out into the waters of faith and fulfillment. I was one of those people! In fact, reading this book opened my eyes to what I felt like the Lord had given me and the desires He’s placed in my heart. I made a list several months ago, unaware of how God was working even then! My list read:
“My heart’s desire is to reach young girls and share this with them…I want to share what I’ve been through and learned about relationships to inspire and motivate girls and women to WAIT for the one God has for them. I’m so passionate about this and FULLY believe that one day I will have a relationship so amazing that my story will come full circle and I’ll have an amazing God story to share. God has promised this and with this relationship, I will have a platform to share God’s amazing forgiveness and love with others.
My heart also skips a beat for missions and sharing God’s love and saving grace to the less fortunate and to those who need to know that God loves them. I want to visit other countries to do this. Specifically…The Philippines have been on my heart.
I love to teach. By profession, I am currently a teacher. I believe that God has placed a calling on my life to teach. I teach 6th grade, but fully believe that God has more planned for my life than teaching in a small town. I know that GOD is calling me to use this talent for BIGGER things. Through HIM I will.
I have a love for traveling. Recently, God has ignited this fire in my heart to travel and share my story with others. I know that it will be a miracle if I ever have a platform big enough to do this, BUT my Page 23 Vision may be birthed out of this small desire. “
When I read over this a few days ago (as I often do of my journal entries…) I was blown away by God’s amazing love and faithfulness. The second paragraph especially caught my attention! If you’ve been following me for the last month, you’ve probably heard that I’m going to the Philippines this summer on a mission trip. I’m already witnessing God doing miracles in my life and leading me each step of the way in fulfilling these desires He’s placed in my heart. I know that the others will come to pass in His time. I’m looking forward to seeing how God will use all of these things to impact others as well!
I’ve stepped out on faith and I’ve given God the pen to write my story. I’m learning everyday that at all times He is faithful. At all times He knows our heart’s desires and if we remain in Him, the impossible is always possible!
