I'm so excited - God is speaking to my heart this morning. It is so humbling to realize that God would want to talk to me. Why would the Creator and Sustainer of this entire universe want to talk with us? Because He loves us - isn't that just the coolest thing??!!

We are getting close to finishing "The Purpose Driven Life" in our Bible study group. I was reading chapter 35 this morning, titled "God's Power in Your Weakness". Oh, such rich truths invaded my heart. Amazing reminders of who and how God wants us to be.

If you are discouraged - if you feel hopeless - if you are hurting - if you feel like your weaknesses consume your life - read chapter 35 of "The Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren. Do not pass go, do not collect $200, just read it.

It brought to mind, many struggles, weaknesses, and hurts but then explains the rewards for each. It brought hope, comfort and excitement!

I'm going to share a crazy thought with you: God wants to use you - God wants to use your weakness, your embarrasment, your shame. You think that God only uses strong, qualified, perfect people?? WRONG!! God uses the weak to lead the strong. God uses the humble to break down the prideful. God uses imperfect people because there are NO perfect people!

This chapter, covers a large passion of mine - encouraging people to share their "story" to bring others closer to God. Be real - be authentic - bring glory to our God.

Have a great day

Living fearlessly in Christ
