Warning sharp turn ahead! I kept looking for the sign because that’s exactly what my heart was saying to me. “You are going to turn onto a new path. “ (Before GPS there was “the whispers”)
I can always feel it coming, I start to grow restless with where I am. It’s getting time to gather up my stuff and prepare to move on. Sometimes I fight it for a while, but I’m never really surprised when I see the turn. Usually, once I’ve moved, I start seeing all the dots I didn’t connect that confirm the new direction. I look over my shoulder and see, “Oh that’s what all that meant!”
Who knew when 3 weeks ago when I was asked to lead Huddle in our church that the words I gathered from my spirit would be the foundation of where I am right now. I stood in front of over 100 people, all volunteers in our church and I was asked to provide an encouraging word on “leading out of how God sees us, instead of how we see us.” I dove into scriptures and found God sees us as his CALLED ONES. (I Peter 1:15) God identifies himself at “HE WHO CALLED YOU.”
Imagine with me if God knocked on the door of your heart with purpose for you? I chuckle thinking to myself, “What? Wait….I’m not ready. Can you give me a minute to get dressed, fix my hair? Put on some makeup? (Ok maybe no makeup.)
“Wait I’m not ready!”
That’s why I’m starting this….Time to get FIT-FOR-PURPOSE! Called by “He-Who-Called-You”
I recently watched “Dances with Wolves.” That was his Indian name. That’s what the Indians saw him doing. They all had names like that. He went from John Dunbar to “Dances with wolves.” God is “He-Who-Called-You.”
There is a deep stirring within, I’m ringing a bell. “Time to get ready!” Ding, ding, ding. PURPOSE IS COMING TO THE CALLED! Time to GET READY. Body, Soul, Spirit.
Welcome to the Fit-for-Purpose Chronicles. A group of us are gathering, praying and writing. We are knocking, seeking and asking God to bring revelation. We want to BE ready!
