Our team will be leaving early Thursday morning for North Jersey. It still doesn’t seem real. A few months ago we began to pray and ask God if He wanted us to step out in faith to trust Him that He was leading us there. We felt confirmation as a team and have been united on the decision ever since. Only one of our team members actually knows people out there. I have had to sit back and watch God move and place all of the pieces together. To be honest, I haven’t worried for one minute about how things will turn out. I recognize that God is already going before us and that He has made this way possible. I have focused on praying for the hearts of the ones that He sends our way.
A few years ago, God gave me a vision and instantly I was overcome with a burden. A burden that I cannot even put into words. My heart broke for the wounded and I was committed to partnering with God to bring healing to their hearts.
I know what heartache feels like. We all do. But I have found the source for TRUE healing and I can’t imagine not sharing that information with ones that are still broken and lost like I was.
This burden would also be considered a “dream”. A dream to reach out to women all over the world. Yes, I am bold enough to say that I have a dream to reach women all across this world and I also believe that God will allow that to happen.
When you begin to say things like that, people think you are crazy. Who says that they have a (vision / burden / dream) to travel and reach out to the brokenhearted all over the world?
Me. Us. Our Team.
The confidence comes in knowing that we won’t be able to do it unless God wants that for us too. And each day as I read God’s word, I am encouraged to dream even bigger for what He wants for this ministry.
What is your heart burdened for? Have you told anyone? Do you believe that God could use you to bring a change to the brokenness that you feel? Are you willing to say yes?
