Sunshine on the Inside

My heart is bursting at the seams.

Yesterday was a wonderful day, just us three. We toured houses in Bella Vista all day. But that's not honestly why my heart is bursting at the seams today.

It's because God is moving in the hearts of young women.

It has nothing to do with me. It just has to do with God choosing to use my story.

Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I spoke to a group of girls about purity.
And since then, my friend Anna has been keeping me up to date of what the girls are talking about and changes that they are making.

And can I just say, God is surpassing anything I could have thought or imagined would have come out of that afternoon. Several of the girls have made commitments, several have repented and changed, several of them just can't get our talk out of their heads and God is staining their brains with truth.

I feel blessed to be able to watch what God is unfolding in their lives. I am so inspired by Anna's commitment to them through all the trials and confusion that is High School. I am honored to be a microscopic part of God's plan to get through to them.  And it's an encouragement that God wants to use my mistakes, my heartaches and heartbreaks to break through the lies of the world so that they have a chance to become pure and strong women of God.

My Jesus is so amazing and he weaves the most beautiful tapestry out of my broken life. And he gives me sunshine on the inside. And I just want to shout it to the world.

Because the lost and unbelieving world need to know.
And Christians need to know that they are not alone and there is freedom.
