I have been sharing a tiny bit about the leadership study that I have been doing at church...

It's been really good stuff.

One the things it challenged me with recently was being "quiet". I am a person that likes to have the TV on, I LOVE music, and just basically feel uncomfortable when it's quiet.

What I have found this week, is that God can speak to you when you are quiet.

hhhmmmm what a concept! ;o)

I have turned off my radio on the way too and from work. I don't listen as much while at work. And when I can turn off the TV I do.

What I have found is that God has alot to say. ;o)

I feel like He's given me a vision of something He wants me to do. It's big. Like I am not going to be able to do this by myself BIG... and what in the world am I thinking cause I already have a full time job, a full time family and a mission trip to plan... BIG.

This week I am going to continue my quiet time, do some fasting and praying.

I have started putting some feelers out about the process of what I think He wants me to do, and it's been coming back with good response.

I would ask that you pray with me... gosh I am asking that alot lately huh? I could really use them! ;o)

I would also ask you to let me know what I can pray for you about. During my quiet time, I find myself able to pray more intentionally...hhhmmm another weird concept. I pray for specific things that I know need them, like Silas, and friends adopting, and my kids and family... but I find myself able to be a little more intentional... a little more in tune. I am loving it.

So pray for me, and let me know how I can pray for you. I will let you know what the "BIG" thing is if God confirms it to me more than He has. ;o)

Blessings and happy Sunday to you!

Yep, I am with you the whole being quiet is sooo hard some times- well actually most times. Praying for what God has planned for you.

Tiffany said... have me intrigued. And, more importantly committed to praying you through it! Keep calling out to Him and He'll let you know...I'm confident of that.

Its good getting to know you more. I am just the opposite. I don't like any noises,like TV and get easily irritated with noises. I am so glad your liking it and having such meaningful prayer life. Its so awesome when God finally reveals what he has in store. I can't wait to hear the big thing.

Oh wow--that sounds so very exciting.

I'm with you--being quiet is quite a thing for me.

Can't wait to see what God has in store for you next :)

Thank you so much for praying for Abby. I will pray for you, too.

I, like you my friend, do not enjoy 'quiet' for very long. But I have learned how important it is to 'listen' so God and that requires 'quiet'.

How exciting that God has laid a 'biggie' on your heart. I will pray that He will show you clearly the direction He wants you to take. Big things require big prayer. So glad you're taking the time to do that.

I'd love prayer that we will find out if Miss T's gift bag has arrived safe and sound to her. It was brought down over 2 weeks ago, but no word yet. Ugh.
