On Becoming Teachable

  1. “When I finally turned my gaze to His Holy Throne and sat still in prayer over and over, I heard nothing about speed-reading the Bible or performing great prophetic speeches for the masses. I received the great gift of seeing my Jesus through the eyes of a child.” Beautiful, Julie!

  2. I love this, Julie. I’m right there with you. Along with Karen’s quote above, I love “My disclaimer on all in this series is that I have not fully become in any area.” Oh, how the enemy tries to defeat us as we try to fulfill the Lord’s purpose in our lives. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Dear Gail, thank you for your kind support. I agree the enemy is so deceptive. As Our Lord has stripped away the pride layered over insecurity, He has taught me of the beautiful slow pace in abiding. Such opposite of what the world demands.


  3. There are so many valuable nuggets of truth in this post. I, too, am woefully unprepared for what I’m doing with my writing, or so I tell myself. But…God has other ideas. It is scary to move forward without the customary degrees and training. Glad I’m not alone on this journey. Thank you for your lovely post!

    1. Thank you Ginny for sharing your thoughts. My dear, you are definitely not alone. We have Jesus and each other. And His truth says He quips us. Let us walk in that and study as He leads. If you ever want to brainstorm writing, I love that.


  4. Amen. Oh how I need to come sit at His feet as a child. The more I know, the more I see how much I do NOT know. I am so thankful that He never gives up, but is so persistent with us. Thank you so much for sharing from your heart here.

  5. Oh, Julie, this is wonderful! “Our heart is a place of becoming.” Praise God, with His chisel and hammer, He is carving away at my self-centered, prideful self to make me more like Jesus. But the road is not easy. You are right, humility is key. The more I am able to lower myself, the more room the Spirit has to move. I pray for God to humble me ever more, so I can rest in “my need to know and instead breathe in the need to breathe in the vastness of Christ.” Amen and amen!

  6. Oh thank you sister for joining with Amen! It is wonder-full how He has brought us together to sharpen each other in His word and in His spirit. Praying for bother of us right now to lower our hearts to know only what He wants us to.


  7. Amen, that’s really cool! There are so many things the Lord teaches me as I go. The Holy Spirit will always guide us in His truth and teach us. Praise God He always gives us the words to say even when we don’t know what to say! God is so good! Great post! God bless!
