What has this forty days taught you? What has this year taught you? What has this decade taught you?
More than anything this forty days taught me to show up as a writer. Ok maybe a blogger, but I am authoring, penning, engaging with the world via my words. This is a deep dream of mine.
And truly it feels like the world has engaged. Mexico. UK. Sweden. Australia. Germany. Ireland. Singapore. Malaysia. Bali. USA. Canada. Scotland. Jamaica. Ghana. Finland. South Korea. New Zealand. Kenya. Sweden. France. Argentina.
Its been an honour to engage with people’s journeys. And one thing I have come to recognize, as women, is our connectedness and the common dynamics of our womanhood. What strength. What resilience. What legacy we carry within our spiritual wombs.
Studying the daughters of Z has changed my life. I am eternally grateful for finding their story and living in the fruit of their boldness.
Here is what the Lord promised me at the end of the first time I focused these 40 days.
Moses is in a conversation with the Lord and says In Exodus 34:9
‘If I have found favour and loving-kindness in your sight, I pray you go in the midst of us (even when we are a stubborn people), pardon our iniquity and our sin, and TAKE US FOR YOUR INHERITANCE (own us, possess us)’
I love that this would be our ultimate heart’s desire. And again, what an illustration of Jesus. In Him we have pardon, favour, grace and forgiveness for our rebellion and stubbornness.
Where would we be without Him.
