Truth is, when I was in Highschool….my heart desired to be a vocal performer and go to a bible college to get my education. I actually did go to bible college, but God changed my heart from vocal performance to praise and worship ministry with a minor in youth ministry. Funny thing is, as stated in my background story….I only got to stay a semester so I didn’t even get to go that far into it…..Oh, but God knew the path that He had for my future husband and I as the majority of our married life we’ve served in youth ministry in some way, form, or fashion whether it was being a youth sponsor, leader, or pastors and we’ve also served in praise and worship ministry in various capacities. God took us through school of experience instead of the college route.
My heart has been in ministry most of my life as I always loved to sing for and to Jesus in talent shows, nursing homes, church, and more. I always loved going to the revivals with my dad even at times when the rest of the family just wanted to rest at home. Being in church and learning more about Jesus was a big part of who I was and am even now. ….My husband and I are actually slowly but surely doing some Bible college book work and the opportunity given by our church to do this has been such a blessing!!! ….But lately the prayer that I have been praying has been that of Jabez….that He would enlarge my tent….so that I can glorify HIM even more with my life and reach out to even more people. My Prayer is to not only reach out to those within my circle, city, family, or church, but to go beyond the 4 walls to make a difference. Part of this is getting to chit chat with you guys, my readers, about Jesus and encourage your hearts in the Lord with a hope and prayer that this blog grows so that others can read and be encouraged. My prayer is that this blog grows beyond what I could possibly imagine to reach the nations, so that He would be glorified and souls would be saved through it. We serve a God of the impossible and He is faithful to perform His word!!!
1 Chronicles 4:10-And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.
Wow what a prayer, and one that all of us as God’s sons and daughters should pray!!!! We are all called and have a purpose by God to walk in. God’s word does tell us as His children that He will give us the desires of our hearts, but what I have come to find out is that the closer I draw to Him the more my heart wants what He wants for me!!! The more I grow in love with Him, I realize that there is a much greater picture then me and mine. My life perspective becomes all for Him and my compassion for others increases. As human beings we all have dreams and desires in this life, but we should know that the God who created us from the inside out knows our inner most being better then we do. We were created to worship and glorify Him with who we are!!! He placed the gifts, talents, and callings within us before we even were….. So why not give our dreams to God, and let Him give us His!!! He’s the greatest dream giver of all times!!! Ask God what His dreams are for you!!! I am certain that He will be faithful to bring revelation on it!!! Dream BIG with God!!!
I am reminded of this song as I write this, I Give Myself Away!!! May this be our prayer today!!!
Dear Heavenly Father,
Enlarge our tents, lead and guide us, show us the way, keep us from all harm, and use us to bless and encourage others!!! May we dream with You and lay all that we are at Your feet surrendering our dreams and desires in exchanges for Yours!!! May we glorify YOU all the day of our lives!!! In Jesus name we pray, Amen!!!
Love yall ladies!! God bless!!!
