{ Small Beginnings }

Thank you for visiting Wings of Purpose! This blog is something that I have felt God pressing on my heart for quite awhile now and I'm finally taking a leap of faith to write it. God has given me a heart for women and I deeply desire to see them grow in their relationships with Jesus. And that includes you. I want to see you become all that God has called you to be. I want you to be encouraged along the journey. This blog is for you!

You see, God has a plan for each of our lives. He's promised you that in Jeremiah 29:11:

"For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."

You may have not had the best upbringing or may feel like the best of life is behind you, but that's not true. God says that He has a future and a hope for you. I want that message to be the one that you walk away from here with--that despite any circumstance you go through, God has a good purpose for your life.

There is something so special about seeing a woman living out the calling that God has put on her life.......whatever it may be...God has a plan for your life and a purpose for you.

The butterfly is something that is really special to me because it represents change and that is why I've included it in the Wings of Purpose logo. A metamorphosis changes the chubby caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. The old body that held it down its entire life is suddenly shed and wings are given to replace the sticky legs and help the newly transformed butterfly fly up into the sky and rise above everything it's ever known.

That's my wish for you. That you will use the wings that God has given to you to rise up out of the old things that have held you back for years and to soar high into the light of the journey that He has for you. He's ready to lead you. Are you ready to be courageous and try out your wings and fly?
