Cindy

Thanks for putting her story---the one you shared with me last fall---into writing. In these past days, and even today, I have shared with others that He is my PROVIDER, PROTECTOR, and PROMOTER. Thank you for being an instument of TRUTH. I love you. Cindy

Thank you so much for sharing. It seems many of us are in a waiting period.

I think most of us have a waiting time, even the Apostle Paul had a couple years when God got him off alone before his ministry began., But you know? I see it more like a learning and testing time. It's during those years when God draws us close to Himself, teaches us, and asks us to do things just unto Him, noticed only by Him, so that when *later* comes we won't get yanked around by doing things so that other people will appreciate us. So that we won't live off of the high of ministry (being told God used us or that we're special, etc.), but rather, so we will live only to please God and hand those compliments right back over to Him. Not just with our words, but with our whole hearts. Barely even noticing those compliments and the attention, but rather, rejoicing so much that God used us to help bring others into a close relationship with Him.

And too? Always we can help people. Today, tomorrow, anytime. We don't have to wait for any big calling to come about for that, and well, isn't that what it's all about anyway? Helping people? And that is something you are already doing, Debi, right here in your blog.

I blogged yesterday about finding our gifts and callings... It might go along with your post a bit. In fact, I can think of a couple things which fit right in. :) Blessings, Debra

Debra...
I so hear you and agree! Thanks so much for your insight; I always appreciate your thoughts :) I'm off to read your post from yesterday...

Nothing without Him,

Oh Debi... I have SO many thoughts on this... so much to say... but I think I will leave it at this.

You *already* have a ministry.

You are already shouting God's Word from the rooftops. Or quietly whispering them in a strangers ear through your photos, words, and art.

You are an inspiration.

Be blessed-
Amanda

You are expressing my sentiments exactly. This holy dissatisfaction...this desire to walk into the fullness of what God has called you to be and to do. The desire to FLY... is how I expressed it in my blog a short time ago.
Much love to you my new blog friend,
Elizabeth
