Well, its been awhile since I have written anything. I usually only write when God gives me something. Today is one of those days.
I have been seeking God very strongly and fervently on what PLAN and PURPOSE HE has for me. I have been seeking DIRECTION from HIM. My father gave me DIRECTION today. To start reading DANIEL. While reading Daniel, There is a "Letter" written called "Dear Women of Destiny" this is the name of my Bible. This letter was written by Mary Forsythe and I felt led to share it with you. It ministered to me greatly and deeply. I hope you will be blessed by it.
Dear Woman of Destiny,
I believe that you are a woman of destiny and that God has a special plan and unique purpose for your life. He has something very specific for you and is calling you foward to fulfill this destiny!
All over the earth there is a deep cry in the hearts of people to know the purpose they are to fulfill. Have you sensed a stirring in your own heart to understand the plan for your life? That stirring is the Holy Spirit drawing you and calling you closer so that your desires, motives,attitudes and actions agree with God's specific plan for your life. In Jeremiah 29:11, the Lord says that He has thoughts of peace toward you and plans to give you a future and a hope. Since the beginning of time God has had a specific and special plan for you to fulfill.
One of the enemy's tactics to distract us from the Lord's plans is tempting us to compare our lives and circumstances with those around us. It is important to understand what God has and has not gifted, equipped and called us to do. I can't look at how anointed my friend is at leading worship and decide that is what I want to do. God did not give me the talents or voice to lead others into His presence through music. I am one who makes joyful noise to the Lord! To grow in our understanding of the destiny God has for us, we need to seek Him through prayer, His Word and wise counsel.
We are in a time when God is moving His people into their appointed positions. We must seek the Lord to know where He is asking us to go. Now is a time to stay flexible and willing to adjust to any changes that God is bringing into our lives.
Daniel 1:7 reveals that when Daniel was taken captive, his captors changed his name to one that reflected their pagan beliefs, but Daniel purposed in his heart not to let his new name or difficult circumstances define his future(see Daniel 1:8). He knew his circumstances would not hinder the plan of God for his life. Daniel didn't let the pressure of captivity deflate his hopes and dreams for God's plans for him to be fulfilled. I believe that living with the stresses and temptations of this age, we need the tenacious attitude that is so evident in Daniel. He refused to fall into the snare of doubt and think that God's plan for his life wouldn't come to pass just because times got a little tough.
You might find yourself in very difficult situations and in your own personal "captivity." The enemy wants to hinder your journey of fulfilling your destiny by distracting you with doubt,fear, and unbelief. God has not forgotten you. Let me assure you that the plans to see you through this time of captivity are in motion. The Lord wants you to resist thoughts of fear and doubt and tenaciously believe that you are going to fulfill His plan for you as a woman of destiny!
I have read and reread this over and over today. I have been wondering for awhile now what God's plan and purpose is for me in this part of my life now. I have been emotional alot. No, it has nothing to do with being a female. It is something in my heart, but I don't know what it is. I was sitting here on Sunday, tears just pouring from my eyes, not crying, just tears pouring down my face. I was wondering why was this happening? and then when I read this today, I got it. God is preparing me for something NEW. He is cleansing me thru my tears. He is preparing my heart for a CHANGE. He is preparing me for the next step of reaching the DESTINY HE has chosen for me. He is looking into my heart and finding what it is that HE wants me to do. Is it a NEW ministry? Is it a NEW journey? Is it giving something up to do something else? I don't have the answers yet. But, rest assured I am here waiting on MY LORD, MY FATHER to reveal it to me. When He does, no matter what it is, I will do what MY FATHER has asked me to do. Because, HE has prepared me "FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS."
I hope in the coming days, that the words I share will be a blessing to you. I ask that you please pray for me as God gets ready to reveal what it is that He is birthing in me. That the Holy Spirit will also continue to reveal itself thru my praying and fasting.
I love each and everyone of you. Its always my prayer that you all hear Gods voice when He speaks. I pray for each one of you. I am excited to see what the Lord is doing in and thru me and excited to see what He is doing in your lives.
Please feel free to comment, send me a message on Facebook. If there is anything that you need prayer for, please let me know.
In the meantime, know that God and I love you.
In Gods Love,
