Remember how almost one year ago I proclaimed 2010 to be my "Year of No Fear?" I courageously dubbed Isaiah 41:10 my verse of the year:
"So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
and then proceeded to get cancer, move to a new city and
Prior to all that drama, I knew God was also calling me to share parts of my story that have never owned words. When I told Him nothing was off limits, I meant it. In all His grace, He gave me Lysa and her message. This summer I participated in a pilot group of this study.
So, here I am with my stomach jumping to my throat, my heart pounding out of my chest and palms sweating like a thunderstorm... and all I've done is give you a link to my success story featured on the Made to Crave website.
I have to admit seeing my picture next to those words makes me feel a little well, pantless. Know what I mean? I'm feeling a little vulnerable and exposed here. But excited. Because God uses those things and that's what I want more than anything. Well, I'd like God and pants too, but you get my point.
Check out the website, visit Lysa's blog where she's giving away a free gift pack today and let's replace all our cravings with God in 2011!
I pulled you in from all over the world,
called you in from every dark corner of the earth,
Telling you, 'You're my servant, serving on my side.
I've picked you. I haven't dropped you.'
Don't panic. I'm with you.
There's no need to fear for I'm your God.
I'll give you strength. I'll help you.
I'll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.
