Several weeks ago, I began a new tradition for me.
On Sundays I will only allow myself to watch inspirational movies.
I am limited on the movies I have at this time, so I find myself watching the ones I do have over and over again.
Each time I watch one over again, I catch something I didn’t before.
I learn a new lesson.
It was that way tonight.
I watched “Amazing Grace”, again.
From the first time I saw it, years ago with Rick, it became one near to my heart.
William Wilberforce’s dedication and commitment, his passion for what was right, against the evil and wrongs in his world.
Tonight the message to my heart was a reminder that:
Yes! One person CAN change the world!
One person with PASSION!
One person with God on his/her side.
One person who is willing to step out and lead.
So often I have been told to be quiet, to settle myself down
To keep my passions quiet
To act like a good-sensed woman!
However, God has been speaking to my heart, especially of late, about passion
There is a time to be still, be quiet - and that is before God in prayer, listening as He reads His Word into our hearts
My focal reading the last 3 months has been the book of Isaiah
And as I only have one chapter left to read in the morning, I know that God has indeed changed my heart from the reading
This movie tonight has solidified within my spirit the change,
That I have heard the Voice of God these 3 months
That I am where I am supposed to be
And that He is leading me to use my voice (perhaps my writings) for His honor
I do not know the plans God has for me, for my life
But that’s ok -
Because I know Him, and He knows the plans
So I rest in His promises
And I trust in His Amazing Grace
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
