It's a new year, it's a new day. We are back in the UK and the journey toward fulfilling a 25 year old dream continues - I am studying a Diploma in Counselling. I am a Certified Life Coach studying Counselling, the gift and dream of helping others embrace life, see through the weeds, find hope and find a way of living an abundant, fulfilled life is being deepened and strengthened. I am so excited, so ready to embrace this temporary wilderness, the quiet place He placed me in, working online, traveling with Wayne, studying and embracing this season with the Lord.
"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream" C.S. Lewis
There are dreams in each of our hearts, dreams we want to get going on right away and some that we hang back on because we are scared, cautious and doubtful that we are able. I have always been involved in helping others, in some way or another, however making it official was something I dreamt about for years but just never did it. I beat myself up a little about procrastinating all this time and as I prayed and sought the Lord I was convinced that His timing is perfect, He has a plan and a purpose for me. So even if the timing was delayed in my eyes - my confidence is in the fact that HIS plans will prevail.
As I look at all that He has done in me and through me, the training, courses, life lessons, being a wife and mother, times of leading, pastoring and being a school chaplain - I know that through the years He has been molding me, using me and teaching me for such a time as this.
I step in and up in confidence because I know I'm stepping with Him.
