Like Moses, I was found in a basket. Instead of floating down a river, I was found under a tree in Seoul, Korea. My American family eagerly loved me and cherished my childhood. In fact, I grew up with my dad’s famous words ringing loud and clear, “Jackie, God has a special plan for you.” I reminisce this statement as God prompts me to speak and write.
I wanted to run and hide behind a very big pregnant belly not once, but twice, while God prompted me to attend the She Speaks conference. God’s voice is heard through my burning bush, “Jackie, Jackie, I am sending you.”
I have my soul partner and four blessings from God as my cheerleaders. I have all of you who graciously follow my blog as I serve the greatest King of all. I’m anointed and hear his calling.
I say the very same words as Moses in Exodus 3:11, “Who am I? I’m just an orphan.” He whispers, “But you, my child, are an orphan of God. And God continues to say, “I will be with you,” Exodus 3:12.
My excuses belt out just like Moses, “But I have four children—two under three, I’m not a good speaker, I have low self-esteem, this is such a unique ministry to share with people, how will they respond?”
God lovingly takes me aside and says, “Now go, I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.” Exodus 4:12.
It’s a journey, my friends. I’m on a sojourn with God and He truly is leading me with a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night because I would go nowhere on my own.
He’s leading me to She Speaks and my answer after four years is, “Yes, Lord, I will go where you lead me.”
She Speaks Conference is about women connecting the hearts of women to the heart of our Father God and that your heart is to serve Him and His daughters, as He leads. Ann Voscamp is blessing a scholarship to one anointed woman.
Is God leading you to a burning bush? Walk closer and see. Watch and pray where God is leading you and join Him in a ministry. Perhaps you have small children and freezer cooking is the perfect way to minister to others. Start a group in your school, church or community. Or God may be calling you to attend She Speaks. I’m praying for you.
