It’s been awhile since I’ve just caught up with you all via the blog. I mean just talking… sharing life.
I’m sorry if I’ve seemed a little distant. I certainly know the posts have been short and infrequent. Sorry about that.
The majority of this year I’ve been consumed with pouring out.. being stretched… facing my limits.
I spent months pouring my heart and soul into my new book Clout: Discover and Unleash Your God-Given Influence which releases January 2014. I’ll tell you more about it as the release date gets closer, but S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-D is not a significant enough word for the process. Wonderful but so humbling.
I also spent the better part of this year helping lead Cross Point through the relocation of our broadcast campus. Sheer exhilaration and madness at the same time! I look back and don’t know exactly how we did it. Simply God at his finest, working through broken, ignorant humans like me and miraculously accomplishing his plans.
For the last two months I have tried to enjoy summer. I’ve been reading like crazy, working on marketing for Clout, helping our teams find our footing at Cross Point and trying to not feel pressured to write. Frankly I haven’t felt like I’ve had much to say. I’m in a season of learning that I’m sure is preparing me for what’s next.
In a few days I pick back up the pen (or Macbook Air) and begin to write the next manuscript. Are you kidding me?! Freakin’ eager beaver that I am I commit myself to obnoxious goals!
I’ve learned that I love to write. I love to share what I’m learning but frankly I’m a little nervous about whether there’s actually anything in here. I feel like I can’t drum up a blog post these days let alone 60,000 words.
God is stretching me right now. I know he’s growing me. The journey of faith and obedience continues.
I feel humbled, honored and broken by the things that God is doing in my life.
I would love to ask for your prayers for clarity, wisdom, peace and inspiration.
So catch up with me too… what’s God been doing in you this season? How can I be praying for you too?
Praying for you, Jenni and so very excited at how God is using you and your influence! May He grant you peace, perseverance, hope, and grace as He stretches you, transforming you more and more to look, love, and lead like Him. Can’t wait to see you in October!
As for me… I am transitioning into this Leadership Development role. Going from a ministry position in which I was quite comfortable into one that is challenging requires a greater dependence on God. For this I am thankful. Pray for courage and focus!
Thanks Kelli! Praying for you as well. Excited about what God is doing in you and looking forward to our time together!
