You see back in spring, my husband encouraged me to register for the Allume Social Conference. I wanted to go. I felt God leading me to go. But I am so new at etching my words onto pages for others to see my heart how could I possibly fit in with this group of talented, gifted women.
What could I possibly offer....... technical insight (not me),
branding ideas (that's what we do to cattle)
or any other blogging words of wisdom.
After God calmed my spirit and placed women in my path this is what I learned.
I learned, "Yes". I found others that were just like me. Others that were called by God to reach out, minister to and encourage others by the means of blogging. These women were moms, wives, daughters, and grandmothers. They were homeschooling moms, public school teachers, published writers, non profit creators, photographers, pastor wives, nurses, counselors, virtual assistants and almost every other professional out there.
I found other women that have had struggles, disappointments, health issues, losses and messy lives. I found women that are living through these now or have in the past and they are overcomers and victorious in Jesus. These women, God has stirred a passion deep in their hearts to reach out to other women through blogging.
I ask myself 4 days later, "Do I fit in?" "Was I really meant to be there?" The answer is God has been calling me to go beyond myself, see myself as He sees me and share Him with others. So I would say yes.
Yes, He wanted me to meet my other Sisters in Christ that He has called out and has stirred a deep passion for the hearts of other women that need to know Him.
I do fit it! I encourage you that when you feel like you do not fit in somewhere. Let God lead. See yourself as God sees you. Be that beautiful woman in Christ - Shine Sister Shine!
