BlogFam as I write this post, I, along with men and women from around the country, are just over halfway through our 21 day commitment to fast and pray to seek and to see God's VISION for our lives! TheMY VISION FASTis an opportunity to focus on seeing God, seeing yourself, and seeing clearly what God has created you to do and be in this season and in your life. It is in large part a time of intentional preparation to gain clarity about what your next right step must be in order to fulfill the purpose(s) for which you were created.
When God looks at your heart, what does God see? Have you ever really thought about that question? Most of us will jump to the verse of Psalm 139 that offers a positive image of creation filled with gratitude for the Creator's handiwork in creating us just the way we are...
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
We jump rather quickly to how wonderful we are and for good reason.
BlogFam, Please read the following verses from Matthew 17...
After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. 2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. 3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.
4 Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.

There are some Scriptures that I will read and then I will re-read and insert my name as if I was the original intended audience. I do this in a way to personalize the instruction, the praise, the encouragement, the comfort, or whatever else I am in need of giving or receiving in that moment. And on today, YES, I acknowledge that Moses did not have my BlogFam in mind when he wrote the book of Deuteronomy but today I invite YOU to read our selected verses as if he did.
