Today’s writing prompt is this: What would you attempt if you knew you wouldn’t fail?
Honestly there are so many things I would attempt. My mind is always going and I have thousands of ideas. Sometimes I try to get these ideas off the ground, sometimes I put them in a notebook, and sometimes I just share them with my husband (who patiently listens to all of my crazy ideas and dreams).
I think if there is one thing in life that I would truly love to do it would be to create a women’s ministry online. A place where women could gather for biblical teaching, counsel, and growth. I would want to open up a ministry not just for women but where women could also help others and minister to those who are in need, who are hurting, who have nowhere else to go.
We could meet together through local meet-ups, serve together both here in the US and overseas, and we could encourage each other. Women need women. Iron sharpens iron, but women often mistreat each other. I’m not sure why we have such a hard time getting along, but we are really the only one’s who understand each other.
Men don’t understand us the way other women do. We understand our irrational fears about our children. We understand how easily offended we can be by the forgetfulness of a husband, and we understand our deep desire to sit at Jesus’ feet and serve Him and others.
We need to stick together, serve together, grow together.
I guess my reason for sitting back and letting this dream pass me by is because I don’t know where to start. I don’t know what to do, and mostly because I don’t know what God’s plan is for me. Do I desire this because it’s what I want for myself, or has He given me this desire and passion for women?
I think this writing prompt has opened my eyes to the fact that I need to pray about this. I need to really search my heart and ask for God’s wisdom on this matter because I don’t know what to do with this passion I have. Maybe I have taken that first step. Maybe that’s what this blog is all about. It began as a way to help others, and I continue to try and write to encourage and offer help, but somewhere along the way, I think maybe I have gotten off track. I don’t write nearly as much as I want to because I fear that no one really wants to hear my heart.
There is a vulnerability in being soul “naked”. To be completely honest and let the world see who you really are, but I know that doing so changes hearts. It makes me relatable because I do not have it all together. I am a mess, we are a mess.
So today I will focus on praying more about where He is leading me. About opening myself up, even if it means I may get hurt.
So I ask you, what would you attempt if you knew you wouldn’t fail?
