God is so faithful! He demonstrates His faithfulness to me in so many ways. One area that the Lord continues to show me His provision and direction is within my speaking ministry. For almost 15 years, He has filled my calendar and has taken me to places that I could only dream about. I will never forget the day I was invited to speak in Italy to a group of military wives. Days before the invitation, I was doubting his calling and was ready to walk away from speaking. I prayed that God would confirm if this is still what He desired for me. He is SO faithful!
As I look towards 2019, I am thrilled with what is already on the calendar and the one invitation that is still on my prayer list. The latter would stretch me beyond my comfort zone and I need to make sure my YES is from Him. (I will share once a decision has been made.) As I look back I can see not just the events God brought my way, but the many people that encouraged and mentored me as well. I am reminded of the other Christian speakers that poured into me, recommended me and offered sound advice and critique.
I recently attended an event where the following quote was shared:
"What if everything you ever wanted was on the other side of fear?"
That quote penetrated my heart and caused me to take an inventory of what I have allowed fear to stop me from doing. The list was lengthy but one thing stood out amongst many. The same voice that called me into speaking and writing, nudged me to do something that seems contrary to previous asks. So here it is...
