Walking In Joy – Podcast 1
I will forever be grateful for the new life that Jesus has blessed me with. A “tough season” was an understatement. The more our family focused on the Lord, the more spiritual warfare occurred. Nevertheless, God showed up in amazing ways through those difficult times and continues to be here daily.
So now looking back on our season of spiritual warfare “boot camp” after being asleep for what seems to be the majority of my life, I am humbled that Jesus still loves me enough to be patient with me.
I chose to purposely live for Him because he chose to love me first when I was selfish, bitter, angry, dirty and broken. I am far from being where I want to be in my Christian walk. I am continuously striving to be still to hear what the Lord wants of me, and my goal is to be more obedient to His will for me. I feel privileged that through my stillness He shows up in very real ways to let me know that He is my ALMIGHTY SAVIOR.
I am grateful for the lightning moments in my life that shook me awake. I have a renewed passion and focused urgency to live and share His awesome power and love. Jesus has made beauty from ashes in my life and I pray that my life will inspire and encourage Christian women to choose to walk in joy with focused urgency and passion for Jesus.
”and provide for those who grieve in Zion to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.”
Isaiah 61:3 (NIV)
