I am in a season of being pressed.
Not to be broken & destroyed, but so that I can release Him more fully within me & to those around me.
Maybe you can relate.
I had a glimpse another pressing season was headed my way with some words spoken a few weeks ago, and then I got clearer direction as I soaked & waited.
There are three books He is calling me to work through & bring what gets pressed in me to Him- either because it needs to go, or He is releasing it to flow.
The first is to press the past out of me and lead me to a deeper rest.
The second is to break out from the beliefs & ways I have hidden myself away, to lead me to deeper relationships.
The third is to press through into the full release of freedom He has for me, and to move into His stronghold, to make God my refuge in a way I have not yet experienced.
I am excited enough to want to jump up & down with excitement, and scared enough to want to toss my cookies, all rolled into one.
Can you relate?
I heard clearly today that on the other side of our deepest hurts is the greatest freedom where we are meant to roam.
I don’t want my fear & desire to stay the same to hold me back from all He has for me.
The first book is Finding Spiritual Whitespace by Bonnie Gray.
I am so weary from trying to hold all my broken pieces together for so long.
God is calling me out of hiding and into wide open spaces of grace & rest unlike any I have known before.
The second book is Scary Close by Donald Miller.
I have read half of the first section, and it is truly scary close how much this book is already resonating within me.
The third book has not yet been released, and was written recently by a new sister and fellow writer Beth Kinder, called Stronghold.
Freedom awaits, and the cage door is opening.
I plan on running through it, albeit with tears, headlong straight into the embracing arms of Jesus, Daddy & Spirit.
It is going to be rough trying to work full time while I am undergoing open heart & brain surgery, but He is reminding me He is more than enough for ALL my needs, and this is the time.
Are you ready to leap towards the flight of freedom & or allow fear to keep you bound & tethered?
Join me. Press in for what He has for you today, in this season.
A richer, deeper faith awaits, along with a new level of wholeness for your life.
He will release a new sense of His presence within us, and we will become a sweeter fragrant aroma as a result.
NOW is the time for freedom!
PS. I will be asking God each time i hang out with Him where i am meant to work through that visit. Where to start, & where to stop.
An avid reader, I have a tendency to speed read, and He is wanting His words of freedom to soak in & take root as He uproots the weeds of my heart & mind. Allowing Him to take the lead declares my belief I am safe in His hands, and willing to go wherever He leads.
