Lately, the Lord…He’s been speaking to me LOUD. Sometimes He speaks in whispers, in a quite voice, with a gentle nudging. Lately, though, His voice…it’s gotten a little louder. Sometimes even, such an attention-grabber-in-your-face voice that you can’t ignore it any more than Saul could have ignored the glaring, blinding light that brought him to his knees and changed his very core… forever.
The two main words or phrases that we’ve been hearing repeatedly over the last couple of months?

This is where we are living right now. This is where we are letting go and trusting. This is where we are hearing His voice… loud.
Our family is embarking on a new journey…. as missionaries.
Now, I’m the first to tell you, that I am already a missionary. As a mom of six children (with one on the way), I have a built in mission field in my own home. And this, will always be my first and primary responsibility.
But the Lord has asked us to take another step… straight on to the mission field. Scared, excited, nervous… all at the same time… this is how I feel.
Would you like to read our journey from the beginning? I’ve written a four-part series here: Our Journey to the Mission Field.
How has the Lord been speaking to you lately?
