Why Your Broken Past Makes You Wanted- Julie Loos for the God In The New Journey Series

Why Your Broken Past Makes You Wanted

I am SO very pleased to introduce to you our first guest for the March blog series “God In The New Journey; Being Brave Enough To Step Out.” Julie Loos comes to us from Unmasking The Mess, her blog space where she writes under a heart of true ministry for all believers in the middle of messy lives and journeys. So needless to say, I was thrilled to have a chance to feature her here on the blog, and to introduce her to all of you.
I know that below, you’ll find words and encouragement that are going to speak into your hearts and souls about why God may be using you, flaws, your past, and all, in whatever journey you’re embarking on.
Return here, every Tuesday and Thursday, as women in The Word share from their hearts messages the Spirit has laid on their hearts expressly for this time. I have a feeling this series is going to be truly insightful from start to finish!
And now, Julie Loos, and her message about Why Your Broken Past Makes You Wanted

Here’s what I’ve come to realize, your past does not define your future.

Your past is not too bad for God, and His ability to turn your life around.

Transitions: When He Shapes, Molds, and Orchestrates In the Middle of the Unknown

What We Can Do In Our Seasons of Transition

I’ve been out in the middle of the unknown for the last little while.

A season of change happening right underfoot, so it seems.

I have a feeling I’m not the only one.

There are these, um, transitions, happening whether I approve of them or not, whether I think I’m ready for them or not, whether I asked for them or not.

Big and small, I don’t know if they take my breath away because they caught me off-guard, or if they are just things that God has always been orchestrating and I’ve just been out in left-field, in my own little world, and just now making sense of the signs that have been pointing this way, go here, do this, trust now.
