As I look through videos and photos from the retreat, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. A dear friend of mine, Tiffany Stein, recently said we are all in a season of expectant hope, a season of "yes, and..."
When interviewing Tiffany for the Wheatful Woman podcast she spoke into her heart behind the Advent Study we are about to release on pre-order for our community in this season. We are all in a season of expectant hope. God is so faithful and so good in the midst of the unknown, hurt, frustrations, and loneliness.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not to evil, to give you a future and a hope.
I recently elaborated on what the Lord is doing in my life and through this community on the season two premiere episode of the Wheatful Woman Podcast. I invite you to listen along to hear first-hand where God is calling this community of MIGHTY WHEATFUL WOMAN in this season of 2020. October, November, and December are going to be months of conversations with women I admire and respect, every Friday on the podcast, as they let us into their world, their heart, and what matters most.
I'm just a girl. Just a girl with a business background. Just a girl looking to use my passion to encourage women for good. JUST A GIRL.
But you know what? God wants to use "just a girl" to be HIS GIRL. Let me repeat that. God, wants to use "just a girl" in ways so she might know Him more, be more like Him, and allow other's eyes to see just how GOOD He is.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
God has recently revealed to me the empowerment I get to walk in when I say YES. When I stand up, use my voice, speak to rooms of women, write a letter. God wants to hold you, empower you, and use what you think is a weakness to remind you every part of you is rooted in GOOD and not just any good, but HIS GOOD. How can we reframe our perceived weakness or shortcoming as something that is good in us? God is waiting to activate the fullest part of you. The part of you that is HIM IN YOU. How can we say yes to that today?
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12: 9-10
