I just have to praise and thank the Lord for what He’s done and doing in my life. For the re-filling that I”m experiencing. for the passion that has been ignited again for His Word and for prayer. For a life of worship. I was feeling dry yall, dry. I felt like I had given, given, given and just had nothing left to give. I need to be filled back up so I can be full to overflowing. I want Jesus to be sprinkled in every conversation I have, I want my conversations to be “seasoned with salt” as the bible says. but when you are dry, and you aren’t really learning anything, that’s hard to do. This is a new season, a season of refreshment. and I am loving it.

Last weekend we were in Waco for World Mandate conference. We’ve been before, but it had been 2 years and yall this conference + weekend was AMAZING. Powerful worship, teaching, and just a unity among the body of Christ. It jumpstarted this filled to overflowing heart of mine.
There is something that God seems to be hammering into my spirit: literally through 3 bible teachers in the past WEEK. It’s about our assignment. I don’t really even know where to go from here with explaining my heart, but I am coming to grips and really enjoying this new “assignment” I have in the kingdom of God.
that assignment is being a mom to my two little ones.
I am a goer, a doer, and teacher, a leader, a participator, a server, and just an all around involved person.
but this season of raising small children does not always go with all the things I just listed. and I am learning that that’s OK! I don’t have to be the one serving, doing, leading, teaching in this season. I am doing those things…JUST IN MY OWN HOME. I had lunch with a friend who has 3 children in school + she told me she struggled with the same thing when her kids were younger. Just wanting so desperately to be involved in all the things [church, ministry, etc] she normally is but having a hard time juggling it all. Someone told her, and now she told me, that “Wynne, your ministry right now is around your kitchen table”. I LOVE that. and I know she’s right. the time and season will come again where I am teaching high school students the bible, or leading community group, or serving more, but this time is the time to minister and lead and teach and love on my family.
God has given me this assignment, and what I learned through Christine Caine + Pricilla Schrier [both amazing woman bible teachers] is God is trusting me with the assignment He’s given me. He is asking me to be faithful to the assignment. and when I have been faithful, and He is calling me to a new assignment, He will come looking for me WHERE he assigned me. so for now, to my kitchen table. I want to be, like Gideon was, faithful to the task God has given me even when it’s hard, mundane, or when I’d rather be “doing” something else. Pricilla asked, “what is the most mundane thing I do?” and I’d have to say dishes, laundry, cleaning the house…she challenged us to ask ourselves if we were DOING IT FAITHFULLY.
and yall. since then, I have had more JOY in laundry, dishes and house work. I want to do the work God has given me. I want to do it faithfully. faithful in the task, great in the Kingdom. So that’s what’s on my heart.
what “assignement” do you feel like God has given you in this season? I challenge you to ask yourself the same questions I’m asking myself, “am I faithful in the assignment?”
