How He's Working in These Last Days...

I felt compelled to blog this morning after I received a text from a dear friend who received the following from her sister:

"Pray for me today as often as you can... I don't know about what just do it. A lady just pulled up behind my company truck handed me her ipod said listen to this song but not until I drive away. God wants you to know something. Keep my ipod and pray... The first song was Matt Redman, You never let go..."

The song is in my playlist below.

This young woman isn't saved, she walked away from God some years ago. In these last days He is working faster than ever before to pull those who have walked away from Him back, pull those of us who know Him closer, and bring all those who don't know Him to Him. I pray when He asks me to do something bold for Him I'll do it without question, for we don't always know or see how it will touch a life. I've always been hesitant to speak about faith and God to those that don't believe because so many from "The Church" have done so without grace before me and caused people to turn from Him instead of to Him. I can no longer have those hesitant feelings but instead believe He will guide me to those that are opening their hearts and give me grace while doing His work and stepping out in faith with boldness.

Will you join me?

When age gets in the way?

What happens when you find at every turn your age stands in your way? You have a heart to serve and yet people don’t give you a chance because they think you’re too young and don’t respect you. You apply for a bigger job but are questioned with how old you are and how little experience you have just by your date of birth. I feel like so many areas of my life has led me to mature faster than others, I’ve been told I have so much to give and yet because of a number I’m talked over, ignored and not respected. When do I shout to get them to pay attention to me and when do I sit back knowing that my time will come and it when it does I refuse to do what they have done to me. Shut me down because of numbers on a page. I’m someone who has so much love to give and yet can’t be heard by some because they know the year I was born. When do I gracefully slip into the back and when do I stand and shout making them listen. I pray God will show me how to be heard by those that can’t see past a number.

My latest mountain that I must move by the power God has given me through His son Jesus
