God is stirring my heart to write again. Well, to clarify that statement, I write pretty much every day, what I mean specifically, is that God is stirring me to write another book. Not another book on love and marriage, but to write the life message He’s given me; the most personal and deepest part of my heart put on page.
Will you pray for me?
Will you join me in a season of seeking God for this?
Because I never want to write—just to put more words out there.
The world is filled with too many books already.
One stat I read lists “32.8 million” as the number of books Amazon has listed. Mind boggling amount. There are already so many books, how could any more be written? But then I’m reminded of what my precious friend Carolyn once told me:
“There is still room for books written through your personal life-lens, told from your heart, and given through your voice to share with others.” That’s not an exact quote. We were on a walk one sunny Colorado day when she encouraged me with that wisdom, and I didn’t have my pen handy to jot down her kind exhortation in its exact wording.
But I tucked away Carolyn’s words and rehearsed them often, as I fearfully stepped out in faith, when I was asked to write Fierce Women. I didn’t agree to write that book until I’d saturated the whole thing in a long extended season of prayer.
I need prayer support as I consider stepping out there again.
Will you serve as sister-friends and pray for this new journey of writing?
Will you let me know in the comments below what your thoughts are on reading a book about “cultivating a passion for Christ?”
That is what is stirring in my heart. Before I die, before my last breath, I so desire to see God raise up a host of women who are living all out for Him. Women who will battle the materialism, the American boredom, the suffocating fumes of idolatry and nominal Christianity to reach a place of steadfast devotion. I desire to see women who set aside personal agendas for His, who are living for more than self, pleasure, the weekend, the vacation, or the next great movie.
Women are feeding their soul-hunger with things which dull the spiritual appetite; hungry women who are starving themselves on the glut of a self-centered existence, rather than responding to His love.
I am praying that women will awaken to His beauty, His reality, His redeeming power.
I am praying for women who will step into the uncommon, taking the supernatural into their daily moments.
I desire for women to live fully connected to, and engaged with, the Life-Changer.
If you are interested in reading this kind of book, will you send out words of prayer and encouragement along the way?
I’m seeking God to clarify all He is calling me to and to provide the stamina and abilities to fulfill it.
The temptation is to walk a slower pace, stay in my comfort zone, and relax a bit . . . but . . . there is this sweet invitation that keeps returning. Sweet but urgent . . . so many women are missing out. God is longing to draw them close, He is pursuing, but so many seem to be unaware.
Those are the women I want to reach, they are who God desires to capture.
Will you pray?
