Am I alone?
Hello. Anyone there?
Is ANYONE seeing and reading this?
Is ANYONE listening to me?
Should I even bother to create content?
There is so much out there. So many ‘Gurus’ and leaders – why would ANYONE listen to me?
I woke up feeling like, “Why Bother?” today. Honestly, being ignored and unheard has to be the worst feeling ever! This is not the first time I have felt this way. This is not the first time the Lord of heaven has had to deal with me on this topic.
I am human. Limited. Weak. Today – lackluster.
I am being totally transparent if only with myself as I have no idea who – if anyone will see this, or even bother to read this. So if only for the sake of a journal entry, I am documenting this moment and getting these thoughts out of my head and onto a screen where I can SEE what I feel, not just feel what I feel. Has anyone else felt like this? Is there anyone else who publicly blogs their deepest pain as I am doing right now? I am really alone in this too?
Well, here is another moment I felt like this, and the answer God gave me back then. I am glad I made a video of it because documenting moments is a great way to remind myself of a time when…
Here is a video I posted on December 17, 2013
Listening back to this I feel like the Israelites who complained about God’s ability having recently been in the middle of his most powerful displays of strength. Forgive me, Father. You have been faithful before, I have zero reasons to continue in this stupid feeling. I am convinced this feeling is the devil trying to steal the joy You have for me this day and I repent in this moment.
My awareness of this feeling created another action in me. I enrolled in a PR Challenge. I decided to sign up for a 5-day Challenge to expand my exposure via the media. I know this Challenge group is going to close soon but here is the link. At the very least, it will have options for you to contact Geeta and see what else she has cooking in the future. HOW TO APPROACH JOURNALISTS
This morning I may have woken up feeling like Elijah. Feeling alone in my quest. However, God declares there are many of you that I am not aware of who feel the same way. I know you exist, and I would love to know who you are and let you know you do not have to walk the journey alone. (1 Kings 19:10 & 18). I certainly don’t want to walk the journey alone. There is power in numbers. That is why there is so much focus on the number of children a man had in the Bible, the number of soldiers, and the fact that the Israelites would be so many that they exceed the sands on the shores.
Psalm 127:4-5 (CJB)
“The children born when one is young.
are like arrows in the hand of a warrior.
How blessed is the man
who has filled his quiver with them;
he will not have to be embarrassed
when contending with foes at the city gate.”
So who is my ideal audience? Even if this piece got seen by millions who do I most want to reach?
I want to speak to Christian income earners living in the USA. Is that you? Are you here reading this? If so, please let me know. Leave a comment below, even if it is just a Hi, Trudy. It would mean so much to me.
This feeling of not feeling heard, of feeling overlooked is exactly why when I do have the privilege of speaking with YOU I give YOU the gift of feeling heard. I am very present to my conversations because that is what I want from others. I believe in the law of reciprocity.
You see, I know that God has asked me to partner with him in a very specific area. I have a very urgent, very specific message for Christian income earners.
God had to show me the hard way, that He expected me to be a #ProfitableChristian, a #ProfitableSteward of what He has put under my control. Having endured that difficult, (unnecessary) lesson, I am compelled to share it with you.
I say the lesson was unnecessary because had I listened to the Word of God, I would not have needed to endure the lesson in person. I was the Christian who had to get burned to know that not being a Profitable Steward was painful and scarring. After learning that lesson, The Lord sent the cloud by day and the fire by night (or so it seemed) to take me out of my stupor. Now, I feel like Joshua bringing those who will, to the promised land.
Are you wanting to go there? Are you desiring to see the land of milk and honey? The land of abundance that God has declared repeatedly throughout His word? The same abundance Jesus spoke of in John 10:10
“The thief comes only in order to steal, kill and destroy; I have come so that they may have life, life in its fullest measure.” (CJB)
Or as the KJV version puts it…
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Like Joshua, I have lived through the hardship and I have been spared at the hand of Almighty God, and I know He has thrown a mantle on me to lead anyone who wants to go in the same direction with the map He has entrusted to me. Here is the thing, though many will claim they want it, this is the path for the few. Narrow is this gate.
