What Would Jesus Say?

After I recorded this video, I had an email exchange with a friend and found myself writing out things I wished I'd included in this presentation. Rather than re-recording (Since there are now children in my house, and it's noisy!) I am going to copy the questions for you here.

*What do you think God would say to you about how He might want to use your situation to minister to others?
*How might He remind you about the ways He protected you through your circumstance?
*What would God say to you about how you can trust Him with your present and future, based upon how He carried you in the past?
*How might He love you through this struggle?
Praying you’ll have time to consider these questions today, and that you’ll allow God to speak to your heart.

I do this practice often. Listening and penning what I sense I hear as I give Him my burdens. This word is also for me about ministry, speaking in particular. This year has been tough for a lot of speakers. I think we are right where HE wants us. Waiting and listening and surrendering our control.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Hugs to you, Karen,

Yikes...this was for my heart..I will go from your blog today encouraged and challenged. I am the girl who loves to be in control and plan everything out...I question why it doesn't look like I think it should...and am guilty of even comparing it to that of others speaking schedules. I leave here humbled by a God who loves my heart...a heart He created...He lives in and one that He wants fully dedicated to Him! Thank you so much Karen!

You spoke volumes today!!!

I did as you suggested this morning and wow! God spoke to my heart on a matter I've been struggling with for some time. I wrote His letter to me and a link to your post on my site today. (((hugs))) Thank you!!

Just sitting here with my eyes closed and just basking in His love, sitting here and was meditating upon His lavish love before I finished typing this comment up...

Thank you so much for sharing this...Proverbs 27:17!!
