I can remember years ago driving in my car and praying for God to use my life in a big way. At that time I was a young mom serving in the nursery at my church and hanging out with the other young moms like myself. I really wanted to be used and I really wanted to grow in my calling. I wasn’t sure exactly what I was supposed to do with the dreams that God was putting in my heart, so I just continued to do what I had always been doing – serve.
Little by little, God began to highlight the path I was supposed to take. Sometimes that “next step” was painful, but He’s always went with me.
Almost two years ago, God had me sitting across the table having lunch with two men who felt called to work with me in ministry. The dreams they had matched the dreams God had put in my heart too. I joined their team shortly thereafter.
Yesterday morning, I had a new experience and I had to capture the moment. I was surrounded by seven men from my church as they prayed for God to fill me and use me to preach the message He had given me to speak to the church.
It’s been a journey to get to where God has me today and I’m just so grateful that I didn’t give up along the way.
I don’t know what dreams God has put in your heart to do, but I want to encourage you to stay the course. God sees you. He hears you. He’s got a plan.
Just look to see if maybe you are being called to take another step along the way to your promise land.
