I feel like I am beginning a new chapter in life, and this first page in my book begins with God.
For some time now I have felt this desire to connect with God on a deeper level. We are a family that prays together and goes to church together, which I love. I’m ready though and really needing in my heart to find that deeper relationship with God. That place where I can truly learn to trust in him and what he has planned in my life and the vulnerability to allow him to guide me in uncovering my secret passion and how I can turn that into something that helps others.
There were two very special posts from Proverbs 31 Ministries that really resonated in me today. The first is about unpacking that special gift that God has given me.
And the other post was about the friends God sends us in different seasons of life.
For me, these two go hand in hand for me because I don’t think I would be in this new chapter of my life without the new and old friends that God has placed and is placing in my life.
Since giving birth to our daughter I have become involved in two very special things in which I feel God is bringing something significanf to my life because I am allowing him in and allowing him deeper access to my heart.
The first is my Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) group where I get to connect with other women that are sharing similar experiences in motherhood and whom are doing so with God as their guide. They are a reminder to me that I’m not alone and that I need to give myself grace.
And recently one of our neighbor’s, whose passion is teaching the word of God, has started a get together with a few ladies, myself included, and today I had the courage to seek help. To open myself up and let her know that I want a deeper connection with God and to speak to him more openly, but that I don’t know how. She gave me some really great tools and ideas to begin with and I feel like God is guiding me to that place where I can meet him and know him more.
I am excited to see where this new path will take me, in which I can connect more and begin to unwrap the gifts God has given me to share, and knowing that God will be there with me on this new journey.
