There is nothing like being challenged by a man of God.
Tonight I was asked to truly examine myself,
And see who I was,
Who I someday want to be,
And the legacy I want to leave behind.
The mission that Melvin and I have,
Pretty deep right?
Pastor Lonny never fails to inspire me.
And as I sat there, being challenged on the mark I was leaving on the world,
The legacy I was creating for my children,
Something in my heart began to burn.
I have heard it said many times that if your dreams are completely attainable by you, then your goal is far too small.
I truly believe that.
It hasn’t always stopped me from hindering my own potential,
Because things that are bigger than me,
Well, sometimes they’re a little intimidating.
But still, I dream.
I never stop.
Is it so wrong to want the “impossible.”
Is it so wrong to challenge what the world says you or I can do?
Is it so wrong to want to be so much more than they ever imagined we could be?
I think we were designed to push limits;
The desire to question boundaries and hunger for more than whats in front of us is there for a purpose.
But whats MY purpose?
I feel like I have been asked that a lot lately.
On the surface,
I am called me be a Godly Wife.
I am called to be my husbands supporter, ally and partner.
I am called to be A Mother,
Which God keeps making more and more obvious with the babies He continues to bless me with lol.
But what else?
What is my purpose?
I know God has called me to be a writer,
It gives me such fulfillment,
I feel so much passion conveying the things God has laid on my heart.
I want to help the lost,
The unloved and the abandoned.
Nothing breaks my heart like hurting children,
Or people without a family or a friend to call their own.
I have this dream of being a clinical social worker.
I want to own a women’s and youth shelter where people can come to talk, for food or aid, for diapers or just a hug.
I want to help people.
I want to make a difference.
I want people who have nothing, to have somewhere because God used me.
Thats only the beginning, only the surface of what God has.
I know for me, my husband and my children,
There are many things I cannot even wrap my mind around.
There are things God has written on my heart,
That I am simply afraid to take for what they are;
Today, I’m a wife and a mama,
And for today that is MORE than enough for me.
But I wont let go of the tomorrow God has laid on my heart,
I wont let that dream fade or die.
I know there is so much God has in store for me,
And I honestly cannot wait to see the way it will play out.
What about you?
What dreams do you have?
What are your passions, your vision, your goals?
Blessing 9: The Future
-I love that tomorrows events are completely unknown; I love that God has given me so much to be excited for, so many dreams to look forward too. I cant wait to see how God will move, but wherever He leads me, I wont stop praying He continues to refine me until I am truly, 100% ready for whatever is ahead
