This is one of those posts you write when you have a million thoughts in your head and no idea how to sort them out.
Okay, two minutes have passed, and I'm just sitting here staring at the screen. I really don't even know what to say, how to begin.
Maybe I should make a list or something?
Yeah, I'll try that method...
* Still no job, though I've had a few interviews. I'm really fed up with corporate America. Oh, Lord, if you really want me to get a job in some huge company, you're going to have to give me a lot of strength and compassion and patience and love. I just can't conjure it up on my own.
* While I've set this apart as a season of intercession, it's mostly been about me going into the secret place with God and just spending time with him. No agenda. Just wanting to be with him. No list of things to pray for. Just want to look at his face. No requests. At least, not too many ;) Just want to be where he is. Want him to be so real in my life. Want to walk in his glory and presence. Every day. All the time. Everywhere I go.
* The prayer torch is going to be passed to us soon. In my state, there's a grassroots prayer initiative going on that is just amazing - churches all over the state choose a week where they do 24/7 prayer at their church, and then they pass the torch to another church. We are going to be in charge of the week that lands on the last days of October and first days of November, right around election time! That's a big thing to pray for! We'll be praying for a host of other things as well...
Today the lady in our church who was sort of the visionary behind us even getting involved with the Prayer Torch and I got together to pray. Some of the subjects God has placed on our heart are: justice, a culture of honor, freedom (specifically in worship and lifestyle), Israel, gathering the consecrated ones, living in holiness, raising up a generation of revivalists who live in the Father's affection and out of that place of intimacy with him pour love onto others - transforming cities and cultures and countries, as well as some other thoughts. How those will weave together and form the main focus/purpose of the prayer room at our church in this new season, we are not sure. But we are excited about it! This time, I'm going to get a bunch of the youth involved. Part of the impartation that I received at TheCall, as well as just the work God has been doing on my heart this whole past year, is about how I'm to awaken the Nazarites and the revivalists, passionate, radical, consecrated, burning ones....amongst the youth of my country. OH YEAH! SO PUMPED!!! My heart is bursting with DREAMS! BIG DREAMS!!!!
* Someone donated $7,000 dollars to our church for the EXPRESS PURPOSE of giving us the chance to buy Bethel's BSSM Year One Curriculum. OH MY GOODNESS!!! We are going to have a School of Supernatural Ministry right at our very church. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
* I can't really listen to love songs on the radio because they make me feel unsatisfied with my current state of singleness. But everywhere I look I see tremendous favor on my life, and all these opportunities in ministry are available to me BECAUSE I'm single. Therefore, this IS what God has called me to in this season. I cannot live in wishful thinking about being married or starting a family or anything like that. Nope, I'm called to be single and set apart in this season of life. I refuse to mope about it! I refuse to be unhappy and ungrateful! I refuse to wallow in self-pity. This is a blessing. This whole season is a tremendous blessing from the Lord. And if I AM called to be married, then that means that there is a finite season to my season of singleness, and I wanna make my Papa in Heaven PROUD of how I used it.
* Parting thought - LORD, SEND REVIVAL!
Soooo.....those are some of the thoughts swirling around in my head. There ya go. :)
