I’m listening to Laura Story…such a constant for me this past month as our church prepares to welcome her as the Keynote Speaker for our 4th Annual Women’s Conference…“Indescribable”.
As I sit here feeling inspired by Laura’s incredible song lyrics, I have been thinking about my current “to do” list.
*Winter Session of Women’s Bible Study
Bible Journaling classes
*Etsy products ready for shop
…AND, it’s surprising how often I “sell” my God “short”. He knew all along, that all of these working pieces would come together in just the right way…HIS…if only I was a better listener!
God has given me a teacher’s heart, and anytime I have the privilege of coming along side another, it brings me the greatest joy, but what often gets in my way is my missing left brain…the right has completely taken over! So, as result, my creative bones often run ahead of the Lord because they have no “reason.” So, instead of REALLY listening, I was drowning out the voice of the Holy Spirit with my talking-which left me feeling overwhelmed.
Anyway, Brecken, my sweet sweet, VERY TALENTED Sister in Christ (we met online in the Journaling Bible Community and Documented Faith communities) and I have been praying, creating, and dreaming together about ways to be a support and encouragement to other women who are pursing God with their hearts and their hands:) It looks like all these moving pieces I mentioned compliment one another and instead of working independently, they will be used together:)
(I finally took a “break” from some of the “busy” long enough to really listen!)
The above pictures are kind of a “sneak peak” of the combination Bible Study and Art Journaling class I am preparing to teach in February.
I will post more about it later!
Thank you for taking the time to read my posts and Doodle with me!
…but, most of all, may God bless you as you seek Him with your whole heart:)
