This year is turning out to be unexpected! My dream to multiply, so that hundreds can be brought out of poverty and trafficking, has been restored to my heart. I don't have a grand plan for it, and we're not near it, but my faith is back. I know it's possible again!
I've continually prayed for wisdom. After all, I learned from my early adult years that our emotions are rarely the best guide for our lives. In this past year, I've seen that even if my desires seem selfless, hope will dry up when our good works are driven by our own striving.
Wisdom brings me back to the place I should be in - back to the wellspring of hope! I'm standing on what God will do, not what I am capable of. As we seek God first, he will move in ways we don't expect. He'll direct us to a path that we need to take, but didn't know we needed. I'm thankful to be guided in this way.
Proverbs 3:13: "Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding."
