Jerry and I had an amazing conversation yesterday about our faith, purpose and relationship with God. Jerry is one of the most gifted theologians- he has amazing perspectives on matters of faith. Yesterday's conversation was further evidence on why God brought Jerry and I together... he constantly challenges me and encourages me in my faith- for that I am so thankful.

I read a great devotional tonight out of the book of James. It is amazing how God can completely change your mood through His word. I have been pretty stressed at work lately- I have woken up anxious and have felt generally overwhellmed. Upon spending time with Him, He gave me a few subtle reminders of His faithfulness. I was also reminded of this while hanging out with a friend. God plants many reminders of His faithfulness, through His word, people and His peace.

I am at a place in life where I dont know what chapter is next. I am trying to continue with my art, music, writing on the side- waiting for God's guidence. Do you ever feel like you have been called to something big- but have no idea what it is? I know my gifts- I just don't know how God will use them. It's a strange place to be...I pray for His guidence and clarity. Either way I am in a very happy place in my life and I am so thankful for what He does.

You put it in such a great way, yes I feel the same way. I was talking to Grae a couple weeks ago about this, that I know God has great BIG plans for me, but right now I have no idea what those are. I am staying faithful to where He has placed me and faithful to fuel the small things (like my writing), but I feel you Em. I am right there with you and praying along side of you that God would bring clarity and vision for my next steps. I will be praying the same for you :)
