This weekly blog started in August of 2012. It's hard to believe we are approaching the three year mark. To read the first TOP's Tuesday blog, click here or on the photo of Heidi above. Initially this blog was to keep my readers up to date with upcoming speaking engagements and the publication process of Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey. After its release in April 2013, TOP's Tuesday morphed into a blog about Heidi and a weekly opportunity to focus on a "sister" issue or other related subjects.
I wasn't sure what to share today but as I took a moment to listen to the quiet this morning, I realized my heart is heavy with many things. Things I attempt to carry on my own. This is foolish since God's Word is clear...
Then Jesus said, "Come to me,
all of you who are weary
and carry heavy burdens,
and I will give you rest."
Matthew 11:28 NLT
As the school year winds down my head, mind, and heart are swirling. There is excitement for the summer and memories to be made and plans to carry out. There is anticipation as we become parents of a high school senior in a few days. There is concern for my sweet students I say goodbye by the week's end. I'll miss my renewed and new friendships of the past couple years. Life is a blessing and full of excitement and change.
Heidi wanted to work with children. She wanted to make a difference in the lives of the innocent victims of divorce and difficult circumstances. We have a choice in life - embrace the change to make a difference where we can or let the change get the best of us. I'm of the mindset, to embrace. Heidi was denied this opportunity. I can't do this on my own or in my own strength.
I heard the following song, Holy Spirit by Jesus Culture earlier at a speaking engagement. It filled my heart and is a new favorite. I share it with you today as a gift. May the Holy Spirit flood your heart, life, and this atmosphere as we move forward in anticipation of all God has for you.
What do you need to embrace today?
