During my recovery, I kept saying, "We are all so fragile and we don't realize it!" to my friends and family, as they visited me during my two week stay in the hospital. The awesome realization that the Lord gives our hearts the ability to beat for a certain number of days, resonantly changed me for good. Time is a gift to be used wisely, and all our time here on earth is relatively short, whether we believe it or not. This moved me to write down what I had seen God doing in my life and to share with those needing encouragement.
After confessing and repenting of the things that needed to change, I noticed such a peace and joy in my thoughts. It was shortly after, that my husband and I went on an evangelical outreach involving several different ministries coming together. During the prayer time, one of the speakers prayed aloud using the words, humble and bold. I knew as soon as I heard those words, that God was confirming the name for my blog.
In the fall of 2014, I was given a book by the Women's Ministry at the church, where I work. It was Timothy Keller's The Freedom Of Self-Forgetfulness and again, it was if God was speaking directly to my heart about how to move forward in a new season of my life. This book takes a close look at the ego in all of us, yet reveals how to ascertain an unexplainable joy that our egos cannot grasp.
It has now been a year since I published my first blog post! I can honestly say I never dreamed of blogging. How can you dream of something you never were really aware of until later in your adult life? What I did dream of was using my creative gifts and talents in a meaningful way, that would impact people's lives for the better. Funny how God uses our dreams and brings them to pass in ways that we never would have imagined. He is good like that!
Would love to hear what dreams God has given you and how you've seen Him working in your life!
Stay humble & BOLD!
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 King James Version (KJV)
