I have had a terribly exciting audacious dream that I am working on making into a plan. There is a lot that has had to happen to get me to this point in my life. I have never felt like I truly fit in with anyone or anywhere growing up. It was so painful growing up always feeling misunderstood by everyone other than my mom. In hindsight, it was a blessing to grow through these challenges within myself and it caused me to rely on scripture, my own experiences and my parents. Later, I was blessed with the most wonderful husband. He understands me more than any other living person on Earth. So, this is where my life has led me. Family, friends and strangers will constantly unintentionally and intentionally misunderstand you. You cannot even completely even trust yourself. There have been so many times that I have made decisions then thought “what in the world were you thinking!!!” God is an amazing, creative problem solver. “He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.” Ecclesiastes 3:11. God designed me with in a specific way to fulfill a specific role in this life. The dream that I am putting down to paper is to create a conference, church camp or weekend retreat with the specific intention of creating environments to equip friends, family and people in general to come to a place or understanding in their identity in Jesus and to gain practical insights on clear communications and how to understand those around us and to speak truth and love into their lives.
Singing oh, happiness Singing oh, happiness I’ve got a homesick heart but a long ways left to go
I’ve been doing my part but I ain’t got much to show
So I’m asking you to show me some forgiveness It’s all for you in my pursuit of happiness Chasing that life, moving on ‘cause I had to prove There ain’t no life worth doing what I did to you So I’m asking you to show me some forgiveness It’s all for you in pursuit of happiness I got dreams that keep me up in the dead of night Telling me I wasn’t made for the simple life There’s a light I see, but it’s far in the distance I’m asking you to show me some forgiveness It’s all for you in my pursuit of happiness -Needtobreathe
God has done so much for us… for me. I want to help others gain insights and have the self-awareness to pursue the best in themselves and to see the best that God is speaking into their lives. This life isn’t going to be my final resting place. I want to leave a legacy that points to the only real lasting thing…. Jesus.
