I have an idea!!! I’ve been wanting to expand my blog in some way.
One of the reasons it took me so long to start a blog was because I feel small.
– I don’t have much education.
– I don’t have much experience.
– I don’t have much wisdom.
“If I say, ” I will not mention him, or speak any more in his name,”
there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones,
and I am weary with holding it in,
and I cannot.” Jeremiah 20:9 ESV
Which is EXACTLY how I feel. I could not hold it in anymore.
Some weeks it doesn’t seem like I have much, but I still desire to share Christ and to make much of Him.
I was stumped and had nothing, and it had been over a week. I needed to post but I had nothing. I was literally in prayer when I received a text from a wise woman. She sure seemed to have something to say. I ask her to guest post, and remembered something I had told a dear friend who was struggling with starting a women’s ministry.
She had the burning desire in her bones but she wasn’t feeling like much.
– much of a leader.
– like she had much experience.
I told her “leader” was a heavy title. It makes you feel like you have to know it all. Leader implies you know exactly where you are going. You have all the confidence in getting yourself, and the caravan following you there safely. Like you have direction on every issue. After all you are leading these women.
I suggested she remove the heavy title and just be the women’s ministry organizer/speaker.
It occurred to me being a blogger was weighing me down in the same ways. I felt like I was supposed to have all these insights and wisdoms to share. Well, it kinda does mean that… BUT – it does not mean they have to all be mine.
So this is where the big idea came in.
Drumroll please… Wise Woman Wednesday!
I’m taking some of the weight off myself. This blog isn’t about making much of me. It’s about making much of Christ. I’m going to find some of you wise women out there; who have fire in your bones and need a release. Women who desire to share and make much of Christ.
Wise Woman Wednesday, coming soon on A Relentless Surrender.
