The Three-Fold Manner That God Leads- Birthing a vision, dream or a Burden for Ministry
A few years ago when I was going through a major decision regarding a vision for my life, a wonderful encourager and friend reached out to me to write a beautiful email. His words gave me what I needed….the truth, not how I should feel or do from his viewpoint. I am honored by the few people I call my inner circle that know me enough to not try to fix but push me, love me enough to stay engaged no matter how much we might disagree on opinion, and have the courage and take the risk to ask me hard questions without knowing how I will respond.
Bryan sent this email to me in 2007 and I re-read it every time I begin to question the plans of God or feel I need to be Doing something because my life seems stalled or in order to bring His plans or my purpose about. The Lord, knowing my struggle since childhood with control and performance (basing worth & acceptance on what I do), has continually allowed situations to teach me how to get out the way of trying to do what only He can bring about. I love Him most because He loves me well, not how I want or think He should love me to be happy. Hard journey but oh how it is worth it!
I would like to share this email with you for your encouragement, strength, trust and learning. May this email from Bryan (also see archive for other posts from him) be a continual blessing to you as it is to me.
