Waiting in Obedience – Personal Account


I am again waiting for the Lord to show me when I can begin to put the history of Center for Women’s Ministries in manuscript.

After spending two years taking the information from my journals and entering it in the computer, waiting three years while fasting one meal a day, I am again in a waiting pattern.

I had asked the Lord to use the story of CWM development to impact the Christian community to obedience and faith, showing that God will do exactly what He said He would do.  He told me “this comes about only by prayer and fasting.”  I have been obedient and felt very recently that I was released to write.   The question became, “I have been released but have I been empowered?”

A week ago I made this entry in my journal, “I can’t write without the empowering; so far I haven’t felt the empowering.  When I tried to start the introduction, I couldn’t write even one word.  I don’t know what to do but wait for the empowering.  Lord, I guess I have been released but not yet empowered.”

The Lord sent me to Acts 1:4,8 NIV “Wait for the gift my Father has promised.  You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you.”  I’m believing that when the empowering comes I will have the inspiration, the empowering, and the know how to get it organized and on the computer.  Until then, I will Wait!!!
