Thankful Thursday


Isaiah 43:19 "See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland."
Lynn over at Spiritually Unequal Marriage is sponsoring Thankful Thursday this month. Lynn asks the following question; "Tell me what you are expecting to do in the Kingdom this year? AND DREAM BIG! We serve a very BIG God!"
Wow, what a great question. This is something I have been praying about for several years. I have also been delaying this as well. So pray I will be disciplined to sit down and listen to the Lord’s direction as He guides my thoughts and my “pen” to write the book he has laid upon my heart. The Lord is also directing my husband and me to co-write a book as well.
We will need lots of prayers. I find myself saying, “I can’t do it;” “Who am I?” All the negative doubts I know are from Satan. But as the scripture says on my blog header, "In Your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall." (Psalm 18:29) I can because God is directing my path, my thoughts, my pen, and my life.
Thank you heavenly Father for your guiding hand as you strengthen me for the task that is before me. Help me Lord to be disciplined to take the time each day and listen to You as You direct my thoughts and my pen. It is so awe inspiring and humbling to know that You have chosen me for such a time as this! Thank you Lord! In Jesus Precious name, Amen.

I am reminded of the verse: Not by power nor by might but by My Spirit says the Lord! May He work mightily through you!

Oh Michele,

I am sooooo excited for you... Girl, I just started writing a book and I have to have it finished in 90 days. I discovered the power of 48 minutes and it has helped me get tons of writing done. However, I pray like crazy and the Lord has given me such wonderful words. Anyhoo, Neat.... and if you want the link to the 48 minutes thing, zing me an email. Happy TT.God bless your writing in 2010. Love, Lynn

Michelle - lay the lies of the enemy at the feet of Jesus and trust in His calling your name to write His story!

God will bless you over and over again for the obedience you so willingly give to Him!

I'm excited to see all that God does in and through you this year!

Love,
Jill
