On this day of November 25, 2017, I begin. I begin the daily discipline of writing most mornings on whatever is on the top of my thoughts and swirling around in my brain. Writing is a deep desire to be obedient, to work towards a dream and do what the Lord is calling me to do THROUGH HIS WAYS-not mine!! 2017 has been a year of intentional self work, discovery and love. It has been faith in action, breaking free of strong holds of vicious cycles of addiction-numbing-conforming to environment. A year of digging deep within my whole being to recreate myself based on God’s truth and love. A year dedicated to the grounding of myself into the depths of truth in which my heart longed for but my actions did not mirror.
I AM DOING IT!!!!
My life these past months have been by far the most difficult, freeing and life producing work I have ever done which pointed me in the direction of my creator, who designed me (AND YOU!) for freedom. Now the practice of working consistently, diligently, NO MATTER how I feel or what others say, I am doing it….breaking out of the consistent APPROVAL of others. There is much more work to be done as I see the small glimpses of approval manifested in the depth of my soul. Awareness and acceptance of it is my key to action. “Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.” Finding my ground, planting firmly into it and standing on truth-not anything else!!
So, the daily discipline of my daily thoughts, actions, etc must be a work to help me line up with God’s truth which is honor, respect, love, kindness, grace. Living out Christ in the places where God has planted me blooming in freedom and love equals grace to a world of great desperation. A world that misses the greatness of God, me included. May this act of worship be a place of humble freedom that encourages, empowers and equips others to dig deep to find the God given strength, courage, understanding, insight to live out God’s might calling!!!
Dear God, I chose to cloth myself in the daily obedience of writing to line myself in your truth, walk in your ways delighting in the freedom to be all you created me to be….FULLY LIVING FOR YOU!!!
