wreckedWrecked

Completely and totally undone

Emptied

Hundreds of Jesus Girls worshipping, seeking the presence of God – and finding Him.

Over and over again.

My heart overwhelmed trying to capture every word He spoke into my soul.

Affirming His plans in the conversations with beautiful women; a confirmation of sentences written in journals unseen…except by One.

That’s when I knew it was Him.

The Healer of my soul

The Lover of my heart

The Keeper of my numbered days

The One who sees

He sees me – my heart – my fears – my desires – my hesitation

…and He calls me to go deeper.

He calls me to a dream that I couldn’t dream for myself – His dream – His plan

Everything inside me wants to run.

I know the sacrifice; the heavy burden required to walk His path.

My yoke is easy and My burden is light (Matt 11:30), if you let Me do the work.

People won’t understand

People don’t need to understand, because this isn’t about them.


It’s about you and Me.

It’s vulnerable; what if I’m wrong?

Yes, you may have to show the parts that aren’t pretty; the parts that are real. But, if you stay next to Me, I will cover you with My grace and mercy and love.

And, yes, you may get it wrong sometimes. But following Me will never be wrong. I know the way I am taking you, if you keep your eyes on Me I will direct your path. (Prov. 3:5-6)

What if I didn’t hear You right?

My sheep hear My voice and they know Me (John 10:27). You have heard Me speak through women you have never met. Don’t let the enemy place doubt at those moments when I gave My words to others to assure you of what you already knew.

Can a God so amazing really reach down and grab the hand of this girl and speak so clearly?

Reminding me of the promises I was beginning to let slowly fade from my memory?

I am reduced to humbleness; submitting to His call.

Demolished of pride; willing to let Him have His way.

Emptied of myself to be filled by Him.

I am wrecked…in the best kind of way.

After SheSpeaks15, I think all of our journals probably sound the same. God was so present and amazing.

Amen and Amen! We are reduced, demolished and emptied so He can call, lead and fill us! Great big hugs to you, friend! Keep your eyes on Him!

Thank you, Liz. It was good to meet you, but even better to have God inspire your words. You will never know the feeling to hear you speak things that I had only written in a journal and never told anyone else. Amazing! God is so good!

Wrecked, totally broken before God… feels risky but is the ultimate safe place to dwell. Your words are like a song, crashing over the broken pieces and covering in grace melodies.

Beautiful!

Blessings,

Dawn

I can so relate to these words! we can feel so humbled in the sight of all He wants to do in us. I feel inadequate at times wondering how I can do this yet God equips those He calls. And He is good at all He does so I trust Him and He does it well!

Thanks for these words! (Stopping by from #LiveFreeThursday)
