The Journey


Sometimes we just need it. Lives to evaluate, motives, thoughts.

To just be quiet, learn at His feet.

That is where I was. So full, on a journey. Isn't that us all? We navigate this life one day at a time and the learning never stops, the experiences, the trials, the lessons.

I needed to be still, to be quiet.

Sometimes always having something to say drowns out what I need to hear.

We as women have such a powerful role. We speak into the lives of our husbands, we speak into the lives of our children and sometimes we speak into the lives of fellow women.

Those words can impact for good at times, they can heal old wounds, touch hearts, encourage growth, they can fan the flames of spiritual fervor that have grown cold.

What responsibility that leaves us with. As I have shared my life and my journey, my soul has been bared, my heart exposed and at times that has left me feeling naked.

I share because He calls me too. I share because I want to encourage, I want to embrace the learning, climb out of the trenches of suffering and point to the healer of our hearts.

This journey of womanhood is not meant to be taken alone. We need one another.

We will walk this road boldly, walking out our callings with obedience. Sometimes we will stumble along, weary we will lose our resolve, we may see the road as too difficult, too long, it may overwhelm us, but we will run alongside one another so that our eyes won't see the temporary but only the value.

And when we run, we will run with the sun on our face, the wind at our backs and the cheering of our sisters.

Our Father will beckon us on and the race will continue.

He tells us...

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness"

So... Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (2Corinthians12:9)
