A Time To Say Good-bye

“To every thing there is a season, 
and a time to every purpose under heaven.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1

A time to grow and a time to thrive!  

. . . and a time for first steps at a crossroad. 

God has asked me to set aside this special, safe place of mine to join Him elsewhere for the Kingdom of God

Four years ago this March, God asked me to start writing a blog—then He introduced me to what that was! J  Seriously!  That’s exactly what happened.  During this time He has asked me to share openly and honestly with others my faith walk.  This was extremely difficult for me, for I am very private by nature. 

Here I have cut my teeth on vulnerability.
I have taken the baby steps of transparency.
And I have survived!
Not only survived, but—I have thrived!

He has healed and freed me in multiple ways! 
He has pressed against my flesh while pressing me into His heart!
He has brought great conviction and great growth!
He has taught me much while allowing me to teach others!

My heart is full!

I am more desperately in love with Jesus than ever before.  And I only want what He wants of me and for me.  So in this request of His, I obey. 
With some sadness, but no hesitation!

He is a good Father!  
And I am hopefully expectant for this new season of my life!

Which is?  You may be wondering . . . J

A lot more praying.
A lot more teaching.
A lot more prayer counseling.
A lot more mentoring.
A lot more discipleship.
A lot more trembling . . . with excitement to watch Him work!

Your friendship, your comments, your questions, your emails—your sharpening of my iron has meant the world to me.  You have no idea how you have been used by Abba to shape me into who I am today.  I am beyond grateful for the impact you have made in my life!

Thank you! 

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”  
Romans 12:12

Soli Deo Gloria!
