Have you ever experienced a stirring that you could not ignore? It goes deep, way down in your spirit. You don’t know what it means or what it is about you can’t pray it away, you can’t think it away, you can’t do anything about it but PRAY! That is where I am right now. I’ve had it for awhile thinking ‘it’s just a phase’ I’ll get over it but it keeps getting stronger and stronger. About what you say? “I DON’T KNOW!!” I know in times like these the Lord is doing a work on what subject? “I don’t know!” It’s an uneasy feeling yet it is a feeling of anticipation. These are times I know to stay in the word, pray, pray, pray….be sensitive, repent, and listen to His voice.

On a lighter note….

Parents are a comin’ to town! Parents are coming to town! PARENTS ARE COMING TO TOWN!! There is not much Mary going on right now, alot of Martha, Martha, Martha. Prepare prepare, prepare……I will tell you what, the anticipation is high in this house for everyone. I figure it this way, I will be a Martha until they get here and then I will bask in the fact that they are here and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!!!! One thing about it, for me anyway, having an event gets me a movin’! Things that I would have done a little here and there are getting done all at once and now!So, Sister Jenay and gang will be here for the weekend as well. Can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait!!!We are going to be together for Easter and am looking forward to it immensely. I am looking forward to serving and enjoying.

Big Fat Mama! - I hope you enjoy your time with your family!!

And yes, I know that feeling. Something stirring inside. My story is too long to write here, but I will tell you that I had a feeling for 3 whole years about something, but didn’t know where to go or what to do about the feeling and passion that I was having. Then one day, literally it all came together, and it is still continuing. I see God moving and leading me every single day and what was once feelings that were stirring inside my head are now being happening in real life. Pray, trust, pray, trust, pray, trust. He WILL lead you!! It’s all from Him, for Him, and it will all happend through Him!

Jen - I know — this stirring you speak of. I started just before I received the call to speak. Waiting in anticipation with you. So glad you are here today at SDG!

Amy Sullivan - Yes, the stirring. . .most of the time I just ignore that little feeling until it feels so heavy that I can’t breathe. Then I FINALLY decide to act. Excited to hear what comes of it.

Have a wonderful Easter, Marlece. Enjoy time with your parents.

Casey Martinez - I am excited that you are feeling a sense of anticipation for what the Lord is doing or going to do! I know that feeling very well though I have to admit…haven’t felt it in a while. Miss that! I am so jealous that your family is coming!! I get to see my momma in June and already am counting down the days!! I hope you have a FANTASTIC time!! Nothing like visitors to get us motivated huh!

Lori - I’m so happy for you. Have a wonderful time with your family.

I love the expectant anticipation the Lord has you in right now. AND I love the way you’re responding to it–stay in the word, stay soft, stay before the Lord. The Lord is about to rip the cover off of something with a big “TA-DA!” for you.
