Kari, Your life story moves me – I mean REALLY moves me deep inside my spirit. I hear his voice also and want to make a difference in this world. I want to meet you some day on this side of heaven. Thank you for heeding the whisper. God bless you REAL GOOD!
The terrifying call of God
I so totally needed to read this. Since being back from serving at Searchlight and trying to figure out the timeline for Ireland, God’s started saying to move…I feel it in my Spirit, but I’m at a loss of where to go or what to do with everything going on with my family and everything else around me, such as the student/parent-plus loans outstanding. Some leads have pointed towards 18 Inch Journey w/ the Helser’s, but haven’t heard back yet. Some to Gainesville, but I have no idea what I would do. Part of me says just go to IHOP in Kansas City, but I have no way of getting anywhere at the moment that I am at a loss of where to step.
This post helps for sure. Thank you for posting it and for encouraging me through it! Much love Seth!
In Christ’s Gentle Embrace,
u r really hopefilled n encouraging….God fill u up….more..thanx
Another timely reminder. To live a faith of abandon; I don’t want to say reckless abandon, because that implies not listening or discerning, but rather the abandon that says, I will do or go where you lead, despite the cost or pain. I have a couple of those situations in my life and it is time.
Thk you @SethBarnes for introducing me to Keri’s story…may we all be so courageous.. http://divinestories-kari.blogspot.com/
Thanks for posting this, Seth. I needed to be reminded of these things this morning.
Thank you SO MUCH for posting. I’ve been working on a wall-sized art project trying to document all the things God has been whispering (or shouting) for the last 6 months about fighting human trafficking through the arts. My songwriting partner and I kept asking ourselves, “Are we crazy?” But when we put all of the pieces together on the wall, it is SO CLEAR: we’re not crazy. We’d be crazy not to follow. I’ve been wrestling with that for the last 3 weeks.
Perfectly timed, as always. Thank you.
This woman and her courage and faithfulness in following God’s call are inspiring, uplifting me on this dark and rainy morning in the Pacific Northwest.
I especially appreciated reading more about her adventure and her testimonies to God’s work among the widows, on her blog.
Thank you, Seth, for bringing us her story and providing a link to her blog.
