Believing God for BIG things

So my first blog..... am i really doing this? i am so not techno savvy! i gave Dustin a hard time about buying a DVD player once upon a time. SAD I KNOW!!!! "Hey Dust this VHS player is totally fine, it's still gonna be around for a while....... what about the kids starving in Africa"...( can't you just hear me saying that!?)

i have no clue what i will write on this here blog, but be assured that most of it will just be whatever runs through my brain on any given day (which, often times, can be a LOT of random junk) and whatever i feel the Lord is pointing me to at that moment.

My intention for this blog is to chart the adventure i believe God is about to take me on. i am sooo excited about all the amazing work he has been doing in me and i know that it's all for one reason: To create in me the ability to pour it all back out for His glory and for the benefit of others. i am super stoked to get to work. God is doing SO MUCH at Palm Valley Church (you will hear more about all that soon) and in our friends lives, He is moving all around us. i could write on and on and on about all the work he has been doing within me and all the grace he has lavished upon our family recently but i want to get to the purpose of this blog.

i have committed the women's study which will be meeting in my house beginning Wed the 31st over to Him and there is this bubbling anticipation in me which is eagerly looking forward to and expecting great things from the Lord!

i want to share the verses which are constantly swirling around in my brain and the foundation for my actions as I move forward facilitating this study of the Patriarchs by Beth Moore (by the way, i am so glad there is a study like this for people severely lacking in OT understanding! This one should rock!!!)

Prov. 16:3- Commit to the Lord whatever you do and your plans will succeed.

James 1:22- Do not merely listen to the Word and so deceive yourselves. DO WHAT IT SAYS (emphasis mine)

1Peter 1:13- Therefore prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given to you when Jesus Christ is revealed.

i have been praying for the members of this study and am so excited to discover the uniqueness each of them brings to this group. i look forward to getting to know these women and learning from them. i look forward to collectively believing God for BIG things.

With all things being said i need not say anything. It's really not about me, is it? i don't want it to be either. If i can serve others on this journey to grow more intimate with my creator than I'd love to, but all i really know is that i want Him so much! i want to be where He is. i want to know His heart and share in His passion. Let's buckle in for a wild ride! YEAH!!!

I am so excited to see what the Lord has in store for you and this group. It has been neat seeing you get ready to host it and to lift it all up prayer with you. I am eager to see the Lord be glorified through it all and to see the women's lives grow closer to the Lord. This is good stuff and I am just honored to be praying for you and the women's group.
