Glorious Journey

Posted: April 27, 2013 in Uncategorized

With the Colour Conference over for another year, I am left broke & pondering where God see’s me.

I started this year with rejection from those at Church & now I am scared that God is forcing me back there. I want to & have always wanted to be a Girl of God; fired up to spread the Word of God to the masses, but I am not a speaker/preacher & can never see myself on a platform speaking to a group of 5, let alone a room of millions.

So then… What do I do?

I have literally over the course of last year (2012) & the first few months of this year (2013), poured out my heart & soul. I am planning to never remove those posts that I may regret ever writing, but I need to have my journey documented; I truly think that it is God’s will for people to see someone grow & change before their eyes.

As I rekindle my love affair with Christ, I think anyone that reads this blog should join me, hopefully support me & encourage me. I expect that some people may even ridicule me, judge me, bully me or even hate me; but I guess that will all be a part of this journey. Any comments good or bad, I’ll leave for all to see, because being strong in Christ is not going to be easy.

During a session with Wendy Treat at Colour, she quoted this scripture:

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. (Ephesians 6:10-15 NIV)

This is where I begin my journey. At the beginning of Colour Conference Bobbie Houston opened by telling us that we are “We are part of a glorious beginning & end. There is a glorious journey within these two bookends of time.” and I am going to take you on this journey with me.

Now as I try to discover & decipher God’s voice to find my path; I already feel lost.
Where do I begin & I know it’s with church, but what church does God want me at?
This is certainly going to be a lot harder than sitting in Wembley Arena listening at a woman’s conference.

Some inspiration for me & those who read this post, from Pastor Nicky Gumbel:

@nickygumbel: Don’t waste time trying to be a second rate version of someone else. Instead, be a first rate version of yourself.
