I've been sick, so I'm late on this post...plus I'm just rollin' out with the kiddos toward school so I have literally three minutes for this post. It's all good, I type fast when I'm excited. I met my little blog friend Tamara, a long time ago, and she pressed me with faith question, after faith question. I'd send her big long emailed explanations, hoping my words made some sort of sense and praying that God would somehow straighten the messy and crooked way I explained things.
I connected a few dots along the way, and realized that she followed by buddy Becky's blog too... so both of us would pray for her. Becky wrote a post that literally mirrors my heart and if I had more time I'd try and write it out similarly to how she conveyed it. But basically, I'm here to bring glory to God, and often that comes from sharing my own gloriously messy imperfection. (Okay, so I do that very well... and on a minute by minute basis.) And like Becky said, if that mess touches one person and they want to know God a little better... then it's all worth it!
Anyway, I kept praying for Tamara, and so did my family- even my parents! We all just knew she was right on the verge of asking Jesus to be the Lord and Savior of her life. And guess what? Months have passed.. and she finally wrote this post!
Would you guys pause in your day to send Tamara a little love and encouragement? That would mean so much, I know it! And will you remember to keep her in your prayers too as she navigates her new faith?
