Give Birth to Something!!
On November 6, I celebrated my birthday. I can remember my mom saying when I was born, she presented me to the Lord and knew that God would do something special in my life. Everything God has done and is doing all started with one act of obedience and that was giving birth! Let’s talk about giving birth, what dream, vision, project, idea, book, ministry or assignment does God want you to birth? Have you done it?
When God places an idea, dream, or a vision in our minds we can either give birth to it or abort it. What are you doing? Often times the vision that He gives is bigger than us. This just means that we will have to rely and depend on the Lord to make the dream a reality. You see once God gives it, He wants us to have faith and do the work to make it a reality. If we would just take the first step, God will guide us to the next step. However, we must be consistent. If we take the first step and do not continue, we may never see the completion of the dream. I encourage you to give birth to whatever God has placed in your heart! Remember Ephesians 3:20 “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us . . .” God has given you the power will you let it work? Also, that we can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13).
I recently heard Pastor Sarah Jakes Roberts say that it is not enough to give birth to something, after giving birth, you have to nurture it! I am giving birth to my fifth book, Homeschooling from A to Z but one of the ways that I desire to nurture it is by sharing it with as many people as I can. If I can encourage one person while they are raising and educating their children then I fulfilling the assignment that God has given me. Parenting is not easy and we all need encouragement, wisdom, and guidance on this journey.
If you haven’t heard I am giving birth to my fifth book this Saturday, November 15th. The book is titled; “Homeschooling from A to Z.” The Lord told me to write this book about four years ago. I started it but procrastinated with finishing it. I finally finished and want to share it with you through a virtual book launch. Registration is required but the event is free. You are cordially invited to attend and invite a friend. I would love to see you!
Until next time. . .
