Seasons of waiting..... They are difficult to go through! We all have different seasons of waiting, both in our personal lives and in our professional lives.
Right now, I am in a season of waiting that encompasses both.......
My very personal passion for sharing my life story and my faith journey with others, and the desire to build a ministry far reaching enough to be a consistent business.
I feel a deep desire, every day, to grow this ministry that I am called to do; but roadblocks keep arising, and efforts to promote my ministry go unanswered....
Over the last couple of weeks, as I've been spending time doing promotional things for my ministry, I have been continually noticing things on Twitter, Devotionals, Facebook, and more, that are all prompting me to "Make sure that I minister right where I am at, First!"
Thankfully, the re-occurrence of that message, over and over, has caused me to pause, and evaluate why I am being bombarded with it.....
I had begun putting a bit too much emphasis on the "reach" of my ministry materials (Facebook posts, Blog posts, website, etc.), and lost sight of the people directly within my reach, that I should minister to every single day!
I love sharing my passion for Christ and for music with my children! There is no better moment spent than reading devotions with my kids, or answering Biblical/Life questions of theirs, or planning church music, or rehearsing instruments with THEM!
My children's Faith is blossoming more and more each day; as are their musical abilities! I am so proud of them, every single day, and I want to continue setting a solid, positive, example for them!
Therefore, what I have learned so far, in this season of waiting, is that I don't have to wait at all to share my stories and my heart. My loved ones and the other people around me every day can feel my Faith, if I live my days with the outward glow and grace of Faith! They can benefit from me keeping a positive attitude, showing Love, just as Christ did, and Ministering to them, whatever their needs!
So, to anyone who feels in a season of waiting right now, I say:
Start Where You Are. Use What You Have.
Do What You Can.
Blessing to you all!
