Major God Moment June 16, 2011

Filed under: Recollections,Simply Me — Amy Scott @ 5:53 pm

As I mentioned in my last blog, “Most Tenacious”, I’ve been struggling with moving past my current place and moving forward with the dreams that God has for me. Part of this moving forward involved me going through my childhood memory boxes to find my old journals. While I was searching for my journals, I found so many things that truly reminded me that my dream of being a writer has been with me for a long time. I laughed as I read a description I wrote about myself during my freshmen year of high school that says I love to write and dream to have a book published. Some things don’t change in 10 years! I still feel that way today and the desire to be published is growing even stronger with me and pushing me towards to new dreams.

Okay, here is the kicker – I found my “Most Tenacious” award!!! I couldn’t believe it! Just yesterday I was wondering if it was thrown away in childhood haste and yet no, it is preciously tucked away and well preserved! I feel like God gave me these items to remind me of who I am and really who I’ve always been! He made me this way and He knows how much I want see my dream come true – the dreams He gave me! I was so excited about finding the award that I had to take a picture of it and post it on my blog! I’m just as proud of that award now as I was then! The crazy thing is it dated June 11th, 1996 – almost exactly 15 years from the day I started to ponder my award and be challenged yet again by it’s meaning!

God has a way of confirming things to us and it is so unique to who we are and how He loves us! He is so creative in speaking to my heart and reminding me that He has heard my prayers and has good things in store for my future!

    Each of you should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering
    God’s grace in various forms. If anyones speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very
    word of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength the God provides, so that in
    all things God may be praised throught Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power
    for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:11
    Yeah! M

    It amazes me also lately how much childhood dreams live on inside of our souls. The things we dare to dream when we are little and know no limits really describe our loves and passions in a way that we forget to live out as we get older and actually have the ability to make those visions realities. Funny how life goes full circle … everything I needed to know I learned in kindergarden! ;)
    Love you Amy!

    I totally agree! I’m finding more and more that I need to believe again in those dreams I had a long time ago. I’ve let life define me and I have accepted what is expected of me. I want to break out of the mold that I’ve found myself in lately and go back to the heart of my passions – the things that got me excited years ago! :)
