THERE WAS SHOUTING, THEN SHOTS WERE FIRED...

There was shouting, then shots were fired. Fear crept in and hysteria overwhelmed. Screams came from everywhere. There was no time to think. All that kicked in was a sudden urge to run- run fast and run far. Straggling across harsh bushland; pushed along south by a vast current of humanity. There was no sign of brother, sister, mother or father. And there was no way of going back to a desolate, burned down, village.

What I have always dreamt of...

I have always wanted to change the world!

Ever since I can remember I have had the crazy dream of making history for God.

I wanted to make an impact that is bigger than myself.

I wanted to have a legacy that doesn't make sense for an average farm girl from Bloemfontein...I wanted to make a lasting difference, play a significant role in this age that I was born into.

And at twenty-three I am closer to that than ever before!

I get to be a Worlds Changer of future World Changers! Future History Makers!

I see men and women filled with the Presence of the Living God.

I see seemingly ordinary people rising up above the present darkness of our age, living fearless lives marked with an unmatched authority.

I see fathers leading their wives and children into the wildest of places, conquering the unreached with their unflinching Love.

I see university students, disciplined disciplemakers, church planters, light bearers.

I see passionate adventurers, seekers, messangers from heaven permeating coffee shops and night clubs, classrooms and sportfields, living lives that display the wonder of a higher calling.

I see them laughing in the face of our society's mainstream sin-drenched living, standing against the draining pursuit of wealth and temporary success.

I see sons and daughters loving relentlessly, forgiving irrationally - missionaries sent out to their own families.

I see young people walking in dangerous humility, yet supernatural power - seeing the unseen, remembering the forgotten, receiving instructions in silence.

I see them surrendering everything, running with boldness and obeying the Word of their King until they joyfully step over into eternity!

I see young people, beautifully set free from themselves, disowning their own earthly desires and affections so that they might live a life Bigger than themselves.

Heaven Bringers.

Earth Shakers.

Heroes of the Faith.

World Changers of the times to come.

And I get to be a part of that!

I get to love these young people out of their fears of the future.

I get to open the door to discipline, to challenge their faithfulness and humility.

I get to speak the Word of our God into the crevices of their deepest beings, laboring relentlessly with Him to stir and grow and develop this history-making faith.

I get to join the crowd of witnesses, cheering them on to forgive bolder, to love louder and to live bigger!

I have always wanted to live a life that is bigger than myself..little did I know that that life wasn't about me at all.

It is all about a King and that which He can do through me when I am willing to be fully surrendered to Him.

It is about a Mandate that is birthed out of Thoughts greater than my thoughts, a Way higher than my way.

 

But for now, I get to love at least eleven of this King's people closer to their Great destinies, their Powerful Legacies!
