Broken for a Purpose

8:25 PM Edit This 14 Comments »
This past weekend I attended the Free to Be Me Bloggers Retreat and I must say my cup was more than filled. I met some amazing ladies who I now consider my friends and sisters.

To make a long story short, I didn't think I was going to get to go and God worked everything out because He wanted me there. He wanted me at a place where I would actually have to listen to what He has been telling me for a VERY LONG TIME!!!!

I discovered that I have not allowed Him to be my Potter. I am clay. In the past, I have allowed others to mold me, shape me and make me who I am. Unfortunately, I am not the work of art that God intended for me to be. He needed to break me again, so that I can be FREE TO BE ME and be the "me" that fits His plan.

This past weekend, I broke. I handed all the pieces to Him and am very excited to see the final masterpiece I am in Him.

I am going to be waitng and writing during this whole journey. Who knew that back when I started this blog that the whole write and wait thing would be about me becoming God's Mona Lisa.

I've got tears in my eyes, Sabrina! I'm rejoicing in what the Lord has done in your life this weekend. May you continue to be open to His molding. You have been set free for a purpose!

Love ya, girlfriend.

This post makes me want to cry too. I'm so excited to see what God will create using your brokenness because you are already beautiful!

So good to meet you.

Hope to keep in touch. Let me know how I can pray for you. You can email separately if you choose.

Oh Sabrina,

You have been on my mind and heart all day long. You should know that God is calling you... calling LOUDLY....

I promise you I am praying for you. Do you know this verse?

Isaiah 43: 19 For I am about to do something new.

See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?

This verse is for you... So, girl, sluff off the past because your new beginning is going to be awesome. BIG hugs, Lynn

Oh Sabrina!!



I'm crying tears of joy as I read because the LORD has touched your heart so tenderly and I'm crying because I'm rejoicing in what all the LORD is about to do in you and through you because you are surrendering fully to HIM.

Walk it out freely girl! Stay close to His feet in prayer and worship. You are beautiful in God's hands. No better place to be!

I was so blessed to meet you and I'm looking forward to reading even more as you walk your journey in Christ.

Much love. I'll be praying for you.

Sabrina, thank you for allowing me to spend time with you. As we draw close to him all the stuff is chipped away till we stand all shinny and new in His image. God Bless you and your household.
Love and prayers

Oh Sabrina!
What a beautiful heart of honesty!

God indeed poured His Spirit out on all us girls...I am so thankful that you came away with the knowledge that His guiding and loving hand is all over your life!

Broken vessels remade into new are most beautiful to Him. What a blessing you were to us! I KNOW God had you there on purpose because WE prayed for HIM to pick the girls! He chose well. As He always does.

I read somewhere once, "God always gives His best to those who leave the choice to Him". How true for so many. He will remake you into the most extraordinary may consider yourself ordinary (I think of myself as VERY ordinary)...but God can do extraordinary things with just us ordinary girls...just remember this weekend :)
Honey I'm the most ordinary. And God did EXTRAORDINARY things in each heart and life.

Love you girl! Keep in touch please!
Don't forget, the pictures that were taken by Marilyn will be up soon.

Hi glad that you came away with a commitment to honor God and be all that you can be in Him. May you walk in His blessings, being showered daily by His best for your life!
Bless you,

Sounds like it was really a blessing for you to get to go to the retreat. I was planning on going but wasn't able to. I was wondering if you got my emails about the Ornament Swap?

How wonderful it is to love you Sabrina
My intercessions for you began intense from the moment I said hello in the green frog cafe. I know girl that he is passionate about you. The relief and release to hear this of your heart blesses me so profoundly. Not being able to be for you in action or hands on person was so very hard. Forgive me but I was called to set apart. It did not stop me however for standing for you with others fighting for your heart. You are very loved!
You are an amazingly powerful woman.
You have a beauty that is powerful.
It has been an honor to have met and prayed for you.

What a beautiful time you had with the Lord. And what a blessing it was to get to meet you. I can't wait to see ALL He has in store for you.

Remember who you are and whose you are. Then step back and watch the masterpiece in His beautiful Mona Lisa unfold.

He makes ALL things new! Rev. 21:5
