I don’t hear from God very often, and when I do I usually need someone like Trina Holden to tell me that it happened (thank you for that).
I was sitting sleepily in one of my favorite Bible studies on a Saturday morning. The weather outside was crisp, memories of the snowy days to come lingering on the chill, and inside it was warm and comforting. We meet in a home that is so incredibly peaceful and beautiful that I can honestly say it’s one of the few places I covet. My heart is at peace the moment I walk through the door- always unlocked, always ready for the next visitor. The soft cadence of women’s voices moves through the home, inviting. Multi-generational, from infants to great-grandmothers, we come together as sisters in Christ to learn Truth.
To be honest? I was a little distracted. My mind kept wandering to Allume. To conversations with sweet Michele-Lyn who has a heart broken by God to courageously and selflessly save babies. Conversations with Kris, Stacey, Holley, Lisa-Jo, Stephanie: women who have a purpose and direction from God and who shine Jesus. And I wondered, as my ears picked up bits and pieces of the lesson on Holy Spirit, what God wanted to break my heart for, what He wanted to use me for…if He even wanted that?
Jump over to Allume to read the rest!

What a huge blessing and gift to be willing to dig in and weep along side those who are hurting…I’m so encouraged by God showing you that this is one way He will use your life.
When we walked through times of deep sorrow, those people who were willing to be crushed-in-spirit and brokenhearted with us….well, I will forever be thankful for them. God used them as a soothing balm in the midst of our pain.
I think I did have a chance to meet you once at Allume 🙂
…but was probably too sleep-deprived to really have it all register…nice to head this way and visit your *spot*. Love the verse you chose in your header and congratulations on your little one’s first birthday!
