The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD. (Proverbs 16:1)
Exciting plans and preparations have been made and the path is clear so far! I am blessed to share these with you, understandings and trusting that God will be in the lead, and all ‘route recalculations’ will pass through His loving and Holy hands.
First – My Kickstarter project is LIVE!!! Kickstarter is the website that has kickstarted a multitude of successful, God-glorifying creative projects (ex. Jimmy Needham, Christa Wells to name a couple) and i’m hoping it will Kickstart this one. If you’d like to order my CD, click here. If you’d like to see this project actually come to fruition, do share it (I’d be so grateful). Sharing is the most essential way to get the word out. You can share my Kickstarter link with a few friends and family… or all your friends and family… And co-workers…or everyone you know…everyone you know would be fabulous!
Second – God is doing a profound work in my life right now. I pray that sharing it will get others thinking and moving toward His fullest potential for each of us.
The BIG project I’m working on right now is developing the fruit of self-control and becoming “he who rules his spirit” (Proverbs 16:32). And as it says in 2 Corinthians 10:5, I am learning to take every thought captive to obey Christ. From victory in self-control come so many other victories in areas of life where I’m prone to falter! Is that true for anyone else? No? Just me?
Thankfully God has given us His Spirit, and we are not alone in our pursuits of Christ-likeness. Phew! I said it a few posts ago and it’s worth reiterating because we humans like to do things on our own don’t we?
With that said – here are my plans and we’ll see where God leads from there:
Plan #1 – Get quiet. Wait on The Lord, let Him renew my strength. I love Bethany Dillon’s song, “To Those Who Wait.” God gave her such a beautiful melody and voice to convey the simple and crucial truth – He can do more in our waiting than we can do in our doing.
Plan #2 – Develop the fruit of self-control! Anyone with me?
Plan #3 – From my overflowing cup, in service to The Lord, pour out on everyone around me the crazy love of Christ… From my husband and our children, to the bank teller and the person behind me in the grocery line.
Plan #4 – Record an album full of music that glorifies God, edifies the brethren, spreads a message of hope and meets God’s people where they are, to draw them nearer to the Source of life and love.
Plan #5 – Make this website a place where anyone can come to find nuggets of truth, wisdom and encouragement. I’d love to be able to serve others as I’ve been so ministered to by those who have used the Internet for His work.
And a Question for you – what truths is God graciously revealing to you as you seek Him and draw nearer?
