Nehemiah: a heart that can break by Kelly Minter – Week Six

Video session 6 showcased a friend of Kelly’s who prayed for over a year about what God wanted her to do in ministry.  Now, Linda Leathers is the CWO of The Next Door, a facility dedicated to transforming the lives of women who have recently been released from prison.  She believes that one life transformed can affect an entire generation.

Where am I?  Where do I need to be?  This can be a location, a discipline, a level of maturity.  Am I currently where God wants me?  Or am I set free but still living like a slave?  Several years ago I recognized that I was living like a slave.  I didn’t even realize I was living that way until Jesus rescued me from it.

We need to show up where God wants us.  He’s going to do all of the work.  We just need to be present.  I don’t want to compete for His glory.  It belongs to Him.  I don’t want any of it.  I just want to serve Him.  I want to be on the lookout for where He is at work.  I want my heart to break for what breaks His heart.  Praise Him, I am noticing that this is beginning to happen.

Thank you, Kelly Minter, for a thought-provoking and life- altering study.
