On a Blog and a Prayer

About two hours after publishing my first post on why I wanted to start a new blog {Gulp!}, I saw @aroyaldaughter mention on Twitter about a Linky that was going to be today. Desire to Inspire.

Ummm...a linky? I know of a binky, a Squinkie, and minky... but, I had no idea what a linky was.

So, of course, because she is such an awesome gal, she filled me in.

So, once again, here I go!

This week's link up is all about prayer and how we could, would and should pray for our blogs.  I have to say that Wholehearted Radiance began {yesterday} because of a prayer. Many prayers, actually. Prayers about where my life should be headed, what my main focuses should be, and with what I should be spending most of my time.

God has not revealed everything yet, because I believe he LOVES suspense! But, I DO know that I needed to have a blog to be able to write about my journey toward this new endeavor. I need to share it with others, not just so they can see what's happening in my life, but for all of the encouragement that comes with online fellowship.

I need and want to pray before every post, because I have faith that God is going to reveal his plan for me within my blog {and maybe through the writing in YOUR blog too!}

Through prayer I received the answer to start this blog, and I listened and acted. So many days I don't listen and act...I just ask, ask, ask. I am training my ears, my mind, and my heart to also listen. Then, I will better know how to act.

I read this verse to my students at work today:

 "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens"
--Ecclesiastes 3:1

It is there new memory verse for the week. I planned it in the beginning of September. Only God knew how it would affect me today. Praise the Lord for his wisdom and insight.

Pray. Listen. ACT.
