The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field…”
After months ~ I was inspired.
My husband and I started talking about the meaning of the above verse which was the topic of the children’s story he read to our two boys before bed. We enjoyed a wonderful conversation of mutual sharing and edification but in the midst of it I discovered a spark of passion – a passion over a book I hadn’t cracked in months.
I hear the Word often in sermons and songs, I share the Word daily in life lessons and memory verses to my children, I pray the Word I have stored within me but I haven’t picked up the Book and read the Word in…I can’t remember how long… and that night something came alive in me…again.
For many years now I have identified myself as a writer (though I haven’t written anything new in years). I have lacked direction and focus. I am a stay at home mother of three children under 3 and a half – all still in diapers. Needless to say I am distracted and busy – I love it! It is a life I have prayed for. I haven’t dedicated much time to writing and frankly haven’t really missed it.
Yet in the back of my mind I hear an echo of a promise,
a prophetic word that I am to write.
It whispers,“Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets…“ Habakkuk 2:2a
I have found a treasure, it isn’t the first time that I found it – though I find I am excited as if it were new to me.
The Word of God… Jesus… (John 1:1) The Kingdom of Heaven…
So here I am – starting this blog and taking steps in becoming who I am and who He has called me to be.
