A hope deferred makes the heart sick.
That was me. Heart sick after years of hoping that my calling would somehow just come to be. At a mile marker birthday, my 40th, my sick heart was stirred and reminded of the unfulfilled longing I had. It's wired into me and refuses to be short-circuited. The longing to be connected to what God is actively doing around His globe among His people. The longing to connect with people in their spaces. The hope of making a difference.
A longing fulfilled is a tree of life.
In the place where I began to ask The Lord to show me how I could be a part of what mattered to Him, He answered me. I was longing for connection to what He was already doing around the world and hoped there was a way that I could participate. I'm a wife, mom to 3 boys, homeschool mom to two of those boys, and my life is pretty home-centric. You know what I mean? How does a woman like me connect to what God is doing around the world AND participate in it AND still be wife, mom, teacher, referee...
I asked God to show me and He steered me to Noonday Collection's main page by catching my eye with some pretty amazing leather earrings. Looking just past the beautiful things I saw that this was something more, it was far more than just jewelry! In this work God has connected me to women in my community who have a heart for taking the hope of Jesus around the world, families in their adoption adventures, and women who have a heart for hospitality and loving their community through gathering together. This is the work that I get to be a part of and it is indeed a longing fulfilled!
If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then your light will rise in the darkness and your night will become like the noonday. Isaiah 58:10
This is the driving force of our mission and why I am a Noonday Collection ambassador. It all starts here...with pouring out myself, all that I have, for others. In this work hope lights up darkness in the lives of people we partner with around the world and it illuminates mine too! I invite you into this work...whether you shop as a customer every now and then, partner as a hostess every season, or begin as an ambassador...I invite you in!
