In Experiencing God, Henry Blackaby and Claude King wrote, “When your life is in the middle of God’s activity, He will start rearranging a lot of your thinking. When you see the Father at work around you, that is your invitation to adjust your life to Him and to join Him in the work.” When I read those sentences the first time, my pen could not underline them quickly enough. I immediately thought, “That’s me!” God has turned my life upside down in all the right ways, and I’ve never known greater joy than now when I am smack dab in the middle of His work… especially when I’m in prison! You read that right. Read that scoop here. No matter where God has me, I just continue to pinch myself and say, “Thank you, Father God, for letting me be involved where You are.”
My desire for this space is just to LOVE A LITTLE LOUDER… to share truth and grace with honest words and real vulnerability… to tell stories that give God center stage with a bright spotlight… to embrace the struggles and the hope of being a follower of Christ… to plant seeds and risk being part of a miracle… to live out Ephesians 3:20, knowing that God’s power at work within me can do immeasurably more than all I can ask for or imagine.
Erma Bombeck actually said this, but it’s what I pray every day, “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, I used everything You gave me.”
