For years I have ignored the direction God has led me. He wanted me to be a speaker on the topic of mental illness. I skirted past that call and began writing a blog on mental illness instead. Believing this would suffice because I am still using my voice in a loud authoritative way, all be it behind a screen silently.
Over the past year, the call turned more into a hollering match.
“I want you to go and tell others I love them in their mental illness mess.”
I replied, from my small corner, “No. I don’t have time. I don’t have the experience, professional title, published book, or know-how.”
Still, my Creator pushed and pushed through my pathetic excuses.
After all this time, I have decided to pursue His lead and challenge myself to trust and obey. If God says I can, then I can. Through my doubt and fear, He will raise a mighty voice for those left feeling voiceless, powerless, and lost in a Christian world that works differently than they do.
While I currently stand in the center of the crossroads, unsure of which direction to turn, I confidently seek His will and know the wind will shift when the time is right.
For now…. the preparation continues. <timer done>
