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.
So you might be wondering what in the world does Make it Plain on Tablets mean. It’s a phrase taken from an Old Testament verse (NIV) Habbakuk 2:2
Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets that a herald may run with it.
This type of tablet makes it amazingly easy to run with information!
Habbakuk had been given a specific message from God to His people. He spoke of violence and injustice, greed and the economy, perversion, and self sufficency. The ails of our world seem to be timeless. This old prophet had a message of encouragement and hope to share with God’s people.
Make it Plain on Tablets is a blog where I will share what I believe God is sharing with me, a place I will share my story and testimonies, and a venue where I hope to provoke the reader into devotion AND action.
