Sacred Spaces 486– Why I write these SS?
11 April 2016
2 Corinthians 4:13 “But we continue to preach because we have the same kind of faith the psalmist had when he said, “I believed in God, so I spoke.”
I discovered this verse on the weekend. It struck something in me. I like it a lot. It’s a great mandate to live by. I often wonder – how God uses these words of mine in these Sacred Spaces (The needing to know may illustrate a lack of confidence…)
However, that said, I will always write. I have a desire to express. I have desire to teach and encourage. As the verse above says: “I believe in God, so I speak (write).”
I can’t not share the things I see and hear of God. It’s part of the purpose of my life. Many years, I received this simple instruction / calling (if you will): OPEN THEIR EYES!
And that’s what I will always do.
So I will.
I have the smallest youth group (about 6 teens) I have ever had in my 15 years of working in the church.
I wonder if God still uses me.
But then I know… from a few sources, these words I write on a weekly basis have encouraged others…
I heard this phrase once:
“Listen to your life”
So true. God is speaking through many, many things. Are we noticing?
Are you still encountering God on a weekly / daily basis?
It seems that desire for many, has been lost…
I confess, sometimes I’m unsure of where my life is going.
I’m scared for the next thing.
I am jumble of emotions.
So I will…
