I am writing this post in response(or a reaction) to a challenge launched last week by Holley Gerth as part of her series of “God-sized dreams” posts.
I have written before about my desire to see God using me and my gifts in the right place at the right time. I believe it hasn’t happened yet as the magnitude of my expectations hasn’t been fulfilled. My heart still aches with desire and vibrates with longing every time I read about issues that burden me.
So dear Chihuahua of Fear, I am writing this short letter to let you know that I haven’t given up on my dream to serve. I recognise your whispers and I bring them to light and put them to shame:
I was created for a purpose and the time is coming when I will discover it, walk in it, delight through it.
I am a very imperfect human being but my God is perfect beyond reproach and this reality is the rock I stand on.
There is no cancellation of God’s plans but there is always perfect timing with Him. I rest in the assurance that the right works, steps and plans will be revealed to me in the right time.
There is nothing more(or less) I can do at the present moment than “Whatever your hands find to do, do with all your strength”(Ecclesiastes 9:10).
So do stand back and watch my Lord work!
