Birthing a new business with God is very exciting! We have seen His hand at work in so many ways; dropping people we need into our lives at the perfect moment to help with a part of this launch we don’t have any idea how to do, having ads pop up on our phones for something we actually need for this too! He has been so good and inspiring and encouraging. He has been whispering prophesies for years and lately has been bringing them back to the forefront and saying to get ready for their release!
…But we’ve drawn some unwanted attention too. The enemy made a sneak attack that took me a while to perceive; in my excitement and hunger to eat up everything other mentoring women are releasing right now I stopped focusing on the most amazing thing, Jesus and what He’s doing right here, right now. I began to look in to the future more and more and fail to live in today; finding discontentment in the daily grind of life with 8 other special people and looking with expectation to how much better it will be when we’re off and running around the world spreading freedom and healing and relationship with God everywhere we go. It makes dirty floors and laundry mountains, farm chores and spills seem unimportant and a waste of my precious time; but it is not!
God is in the journey, not just our destinations. There is so much joy to be found, so many extremely valuable lessons to be learned, so much of my own healing and freedom to receive along the way that I would miss if I jumped over this growing time. And those 8 other people living in this house make it such a special home filled laughter and learning, tears and comfort, and especially Jesus. We are not a family thrown together by chance. God gave me this family to love and cherish.
New phases are coming for all of us. Change is inevitable. But each step of the journey is not just to be mastered, but to find joy in, for the Lord is in each new place. With my eyes on Jesus, I find joy and am honored to serve this amazing family for the precious little time we have to live under this one roof. While I’m serving here, He’s cleaning out my soul garden and correcting the pH of my soil. And here and now… I am a planting of the Lord by His streams of righteousness (Is.61:4) My tree may be little right now beside all these giant women of the faith, but my tree is beautiful and growing mightily as I continue to live in the joy of today.
“You will show me the path to life, abounding joy in your presence, the delights at your right hand forever.” Psalm 16:11
