i wanna b

…all that i was created to be. although it kinda scares me, i want to realize my potential in this life – to know just what God has me here for and pursue it with all that is in me. i wanna sing, but not just to hear my self sing, or to make someone smile or to entertain. i want to sing to impact people – to relay a message that will make them cry inside – or laugh – or sigh with relief from feeling set free -or get crazy mad about how the world is, and do something great to affect change. i want my music to evoke emotion in an anointed way. faith driven. and i want to only go places, sing songs and speak words that God would have me. as moses, i am purposing not to blindly step foot on ground that God has not blessed for me. oh, to be in his perfect will! it is so sweet. i went to see Darlene Zschech and Joyce Meyer last wkend & heard her speak of a man on their team that said he knew beyond a shadow that he was smack-dab in the center of God’s will. it seems that God has so much planned & we have so much potential that it’s intimidating, but only when i view it through the glasses of my own strength. choice by choice, moment by moment i will keep loving him and keep trusting him. not leading a safe, sheltered life but risking popularity to pursue potential.
1 cor.2:9 ~ The Holy Writings say, “No eye has ever seen or no ear has ever heard or no mind has ever thought of the wonderful things God has made ready for those who love Him.” (Isaiah 64:4; 65:17)

    Chelaner! I just have to say that this is going to be happening so soon for you. Every time I talk to you there is something new and exciting that God is doing in you and your family’s life. You are a woman full of faith and you have an obedient heart towards God and I know He’ll honor that! You are an encouragement to me and I think you are just GREAT! Love you and I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

    Very inspiring blog – you let your love, desire, and hunger for God shine through this computer screen…you are awesome, Woman of God!! Keep doing what you’re doing for Christ.

    By the way – LOVE the pics of the babies. You are pretty good at that photography thing. When can I set up a time for family portraits? 😉
    I enjoyed the pics taken in Hawaii – I’m hoping my 10 year will be just as fabulous! Ok so it’s 5 years away but hey, a girl can plan can’t she?

    Hugs and kisses from the Thompson fam
