This post is part of Five Minute Friday over at Lisa-Jo Baker’s blog. We write for five minutes, unedited. I’ll admit, I did a little editing today.
Willing. I have fought writing this post all day, because I haven’t been willing. You have to be willing to write, willing to use your voice, brave even, to have all your words out in the open.
I have fought with myself about how willing I am to follow the will of God. I have become more convinced that I am to use my voice, my blog as a voice for the voiceless.
And so, for the first time, I’m going to be participating in Compassion Sunday. It’s a Sunday where I (or someone for me) will be explaining about how Compassion International works, and asking people to sponsor a child. I am also going to be researching Christian Relief Fund.
I’m excited to use my voice. And I’m scared. But I’m also learning how to be willing. I am offering my heart and my voice and my blog to be used for God’s work. Isn’t it odd how technology works? I will probably never meet the people I’m going to try to be an advocate for, but I can still love them and be willing to tell others about them. I can write about them.
Stage 2 of the community center for Maubane is coming up this next week. As part of the kickoff, I’m going to have a little giveaway. Come back on Tuesday to see what it is.
