Confess it, say it, proclaim it, scream it, shout it, whatever it takes, get the WORD in you.
As I sit here, realizing all that has changed, transformed, renewed in my life over the past few months. From leaving a way of life I loved, missions, people, rainforest, to settle once again in the desert. Along the way, a path of learning, soaring, singing, dancing the happy dance.
Raw, real, I promised to share my path, step by step. One of the major steps, the starting point, simple, profound, the WORD of God. Seriously, no joking. No magic bean to swallow and transform over night. We had seen our marriage in the light of truth, our family, lay down all ministry, focus on His Word. The truth transforms.
Like a seed, planted, words bear fruit. They are wrapped in faith or fear. And they produce a harvest after their kind. Faith filled words hand you victory. Fear filled words lead to defeat. I had enough of fear words in my life. Time to plant some faith words. But where to start?
"So then, faith comes by hearing, and hearing the word of God." -Romans 10:17
Hearing it, means someone has to say it. And you know what, I tend to believe my own voice over anyone else's. I took the step to the tune of the music. Not just reading God's Word, saying it, out loud. Starting my day with scriptures of victory, love, hope, faith, joy, all wrapped in promises for me.
When the enemy roared, I had life in words to cling to. Over and over saying them, defeating him with every syllable. Continuing, change began. My heart hearing my words began to believe and faith grew. Today, I continue, getting more of His truth, the WORD in me, saying it, shouting it, speaking to the mountains the power of the Word of God.
Imagine the dancing that goes on around here as I watch a mountain crumble into dust at my feet.
