One thing to know about me is that I have lots of great ideas. I’m just not always great at following through. Lately I find my ideas are getting bigger and bigger…many are more than I could ever expect to do on my own.
Some ideas after a while get pushed aside and forgotten. Others get neglected because of my lack of time management. Then there are some that refuse to die or be diminished no matter how much I try. These are the ideas that I find were never mine to begin with, but they are Gods ideas. Over time they come to life with the barest of efforts on my behalf. Usually just a stepping out in faith. It seems that as one thing comes to life and is finished it is lately replaced by an even bigger thing that is hard for me to picture, except for in my wildest imagination.
I have two different book ideas. I still haven’t written the devotional book I wanted to do although I did help collaborate on Groove (paperback), (for Kindle), (For All Others). Now with two different book ideas and one I hope to make into a free e-book for subscribers. That doesn’t even count my fictional writing.
I never set out to write, and when I began blogging I never thought that I would ever write to be published. Yet God has allowed me to have some writing published in two different books now. My hope is that in 2015 I will be able to make daily writing a priority in my life, and to see that writing grow.
Leading, Rest, and Waiting
God is also placing within my heart a greater pull toward leading bible studies. I have to admit this isn’t something I expected but I am excited to see what the new year will bring. At the same time there is still that sense of rest. My health problems are ongoing, and for this season I am in a forced rest. Yet I am learning anew how to be still before Jesus in a whole new way. I am learning the importance of rest and maybe I will be able to share with you in time.
I am also learning about waiting. So while things may have settled externally in my life, I find I am still growing and learning in my spirit. It has been a strange season in some ways, but I believe it will be essential for my growth.
