Lord, Use Me to Touch the Lives of Others.

Since becoming a Christian in 1993, I’ve been growing a little bit more every year.   In the past 5 years or so, I’ve really wanted to make a difference for Christ in the world.  I wanted to touch the lives of others.  I couldn’t go on Mission trips to all places around the world.   But one day, God showed me and a group of lady friends of mine what His plan for us was….where our mission field was…. and it was all of you dear readers!

This chapter has actually been my prayer for the past 4 years, and the answer came in the form of     When I started writing for this blog, I had no clue what I was doing.   I look back at some of my first articles and think “what an amateur she is!”, but as I let God continue to work through me, some of my articles I can tell were most definitely written by God and not me.    He took over my fingers as I started to write them.  I look back at some of the topics I wrote on, and it was by God’s grace that they made any sense!  Amazing.

One by one, 3 of the original 6 writers started dropping out of the ministry.   When it came time for Cumingirl and Cinnamonsticks to also move on to new arenas in life, I was so deeply saddened.   Christiannymphos was something I  was very proud to be a part of.   I just didn’t feel done, so that is the reason for this blog branched off to the next generation of CN.  No, it won’t be exactly the same.  Some of my other spice sisters were much spicier than I am, but I am still hopeful that there is an audience that I can reach.  God wouldn’t have me continuing if there wasn’t someone else out there that needed this blog.   Just as Stormie asked in this chapter for corporate prayer for all her books to reach all over the world, I ask also for corporate prayer for this blog.  That God would continue to use me as long as there is still a need for this kind of blog.   I am finding that I am reaching all over the globe, and it is overwhelming at times.  I have even had an offer to translate my blog into Spanish!  I need a lot of prayer about God’s will and getting me the right translator for the job if that is part of his plan.

Thank you all so much for following me here from CN.   Thank you for all your support and prayers.  It really means a lot to me.   Praise be to God for all his blessings.  May I truly be able to grow in the love and wisdom of Christ.   Thank you Lord for all you do for me.  I couldn’t do it without you.
