About Our Doubts

Click here to complete my mini-survey and for a chance to win a book!You are blessings me to pieces with all your comments and surveys. I’m going to leave this up through the weekend and make some big announcements on Monday. Have a great weekend my faithful and wonderful friends!!

Welcome
to those linking over from my P31 devotion.
As I shared, my heart needs lots of repairs and Jesus is always there offering to do them. But sometimes it’s to doubt it’s possible. Or we doubt ourselves and our futures when our lives feel broken; our dreams shattered. For years I allowed the pain of my past to keep me from believing God had hope for my future. I let insecurities and doubts keep me from living in the assurance of God’s promises and the confidence of God’s love.

Give-away and Mini-Survey
Now I sense God calling me to help other women walk out of the shadows of their doubts and live in the confidence of who God has created and called them to be. I’m writing a book on the topic of a woman’s doubts. I know that publishers want to hear what a woman is thinking and feeling, and needing for encouragement. So, I created a mini-survey (6 questions) that will help determine the focus of each chapter.

Pretty please, would you take two minutes to complete the short survey and then come back to let me know you did. As my thanks to you, I’ll be giving away 4 autographed copies of Who Holds the Key to Your Heart? So, please take the survey and leave a comment below this post telling me you did it. I’m praying for 500+ responses!!! You can help by telling friends and sending a link. If you get others to complete it, tell me and you’ll have two chances to win. I’ll do the drawing Monday! THANK YOU so much!!!

More encouragement for today…

When God Takes Broken and Makes it Beautiful

My dearest friend’s husband, one of my favorite pastors, had been told his position was being eliminated. She would be moving – hours away. This was the woman who had believed in me. Invested in me. Encouraged me. Prayed for me, and stood beside me as I walked through my fears and doubts to follow God’s calling to write and speak.

This was my women’s ministry leader. The one I was going to serve alongside until we both shriveled up and went to be with Jesus. This was the woman had built one of the most amazing women’s ministries in the country. And now it was broken!

My heart was broken, too. I didn’t know how to process my pain.

I thought yard work might be a good distraction for my despair. As I walked into our backyard, I noticed a rose bush the previous homeowner had planted in the center of our split rail fence. It was in full bloom, expressing her glory through the display of gorgeous pink blossoms across the center of the fence.

How did that happen? I wondered.

Although I’d never used it, I knew we had rose food in our shed so I decided to fertilize the bush to help her sustain her blossoms.

As I pulled the weeds back, clearing the way for plant food to sink into the soil, I noticed the root ball divided into four sections. Then a thought ran through my mind. Should I leave them all together, or pull them apart and place them at different posts on the fence? If I separated them and planted the sections in fertile soil at separate posts, their vines would eventually connect and create a blanket of pink draped across the whole fence.

I knelt before the blossoming beauty and pressed my hands into the dirt, trying to find the right places to separate the root ball. That’s when I felt God whisper to my heart.

Renee, do you see this plant? It’s what I see when I look at you and the women’s ministry you love. Each of you serving on the ministry team has been carefully planted in your giftedness, nurtured and encouraged through prayer, equipped through training, fertilized by opportunities to serve and you have produced fruit…fruit that will last!

But, like this plant, you have reached the fullness of My glory in your current soil. You and the rest of the team are ready to divided into separate plants so that my glory in each of you will be more fully displayed as you are uniquely and individually planted in new places of ministry.

What? Surely MaryAnn leaving wasn’t the only uprooting I was about to experience? I couldn’t bear the thought. More pruning? More breaking up of what has taken years to establish?

I had just gotten to where I was comfortable and felt courage to step and do more in ministry. I was surrounded by women who loved me. We were a team and I just couldn’t do it without them. Yet, as I imagined God’s glory like that of the rose bush being more fully displayed, my heart settled into a place that felt very right. It wasn’t my plan, but if it was for His glory, wasn’t that what I wanted? Would I trust Him to heal the brokenness and pain and bring something good from it?

That day I knelt on Holy ground in front of my rose bush and surrendered the broken dreams in my heart. Even if it meant letting go of what I loved so deeply, it would be worth it if others would see HIM more clearly. Somehow I knew that with God’s care, our vines would cross again in the Kingdom, and His beauty would be more gloriously seen in these new places where He was about to plant each of us.

That was five years ago. I honestly don’t think I’d be who I am today if God had not uprooted my plans and redefined my dreams.

It’s hard when God allows our hopes to be shattered, our hearts to be broken, our relationships to be fractured, our fears to be realized. I really doubted any good could come from such loss. I doubted that I could make it through the pain.

Like the uprooting of that rose bush some of my leaves wilted, some stems were cut back, petals fell to the ground and some branches had more thorns than blossoms for a while. It took time for me to get re-established in new soil. But God plan for His glory became evident each day that I surrendered to His power and trusted His plans more than mine.

I didn’t think I could make it but God took my doubts and created absolute dependence on Him. I pray that somehow today you see His glory more fully in me and in yourself as we depend more fully on Him, to take our broken and make something beautiful.

  40. Brenda Mullis says:

    I have filled out your survey and thank you for sending that today..I lost my job yesterday and I am floundering as to what I do now.  I had talked to God and told him I wanted to “retire” in May 2009.  That was before the financial mess.  Apparently, he has decided that this is a good time for me to retire, but I do not know what path to take.  Ironically, I just filled out an application for a business license for selling jewelry I make.  Part of the jewelry is God focused but not all.  It seems frivial but I figure that women love to adorn themselves with things that are not expensive.  I am just in major doubt about where to head.  I need to bring in some money at least.  At any rate, your questions hit my heart as did your devotional.  Thank you!  God bless you!!

  41. HI Renee, Thank you for the wonderful illustration today. I can relate! God does know what He is doing, oh why do I doubt?!? I tried the survey, but it wasn’t working. I’ll check again.

  42. I have completed the survey! Thank you for sharing your heart–your “Encouragement for Today” posting on Crosswalk spoke to me this morning. I look forward to learning about the issues other women have with doubt.

    Blessings Abundant!

I’ve always been strong and able to pick myself up and go on, but now I just want to die. There are so many challenges I face with starting a new life and supporting myself and my beloved animals. I know God is good, and loves us, but right now I just can’t see it happening to me.

    Survey done. My thinking seems to be quite different than most women….always has been, so not sure how your book will relate to the issues I seem to have with doubt….(I don't have doubt in myself…..others around me as they never seem to end giving me reason to doubt them). Eg…home care person neighbor & friend of my Mothers boyfriend from church who stole her ID, stole valuables from the house & abused my Mother when she was dying of cancer (lucky I was there to protect her….but it still happened as it took time to figure out what was happening, eg2…ID stolen & truck broken into while driving back to California…eg3…friend suggested I use the same person he was using to put in heat pump….the guy ended up being totally incompetent…still after 6+ months don't have a working NEW system & ended up with a huge electric bill I can't pay….& this is not really the end…the list continues)….none of these situations has the law or anyone else been able to hold the people accountable…..I have had more than enough in my life to doubt everyone around me…..Know God has purposes for everything….but sure not really understanding all of this.

    Hello Renee,

    I just took the short quiz and it made me really think about my doubts. I am heading to college and questions about God’s plan for my life have been plaguing me for the past couple of months. Recently I have come to the realization that God is guiding me and that I need to trust him.

    Sincerely,

  154. Done. Thanks, Renee, for following God’s promptings to write.

  155. Renee – I did your survey. Amazing that I am blogging (dealing) with the very topic” “doubt”. I am an unpublished writer, and am faithfully doing the things God keeps asking. But sometimes it feels discouraging when I’m paralized in getting the ball rolling on proposals, publishing, increasing presences, etc…
    I would love if you visited me 🙂

  159. Clicked over from P31, completed the survey and came read your post on the rose bush.

    “It’s hard when God allows our hopes to be shattered, our hearts to be broken, our relationships to be fractured, our fears to be realized. I really doubted any good could come from such loss. I doubted that I could make it through the pain.”

    Wow!! Through tears, thank you, very appropriate for me at this time.

  160. Thank you for your encouragement. Also, for the opportunity to do your survey. I was surprised, and dismayed (?) by my answers! Also, I am planted in new soil… in a whole new country. But I know God is working. Great things are coming!

  228. Hi Renee. I just finished your survey concerning doubt. Your devotional today was truly a blessing to me since I just prayed to the Lord last night concerning my brokenness. Isn’t it funny for me to call it my own. I guess I do that because the doubt and lack of confidence come from many, many scars that I’ve had from early childhood up through this year. Sometimes, when you’ve experienced a lot of trauma in your life you question whether or not wholeness is really possible for you. But now, today, I’ve prayed and chosen to believe and trust in Him. Salvation means wholeness and healing so I’m putting my trust and my wounded heart in my Lord’s hands. He’s all I have left and He’s enough. My e-mail address is: morris_tameka@yahoo.com. God bless you.

  229. I did it. Blessings & wisdom as you complete your book. Mary

I still have my times of working through deep pain, frustration, and anger. But it is getting easier. God has been so patient with me and so faithful. It is so true – the painful things are necessary – they refine us in ways we could never imagine. I know He is sufficient and will heal my brokenness.

  295. I’ve completed the survey, but I also wanted to share that doubts have plagued me ever since I became a mom. In fact, I wouldn’t call them doubts but beliefs in my utter failure to bring up these gorgeous, precious kids the Lord has blessed us with. I’ve asked the Lord a million times to help me be more patient, kind, loving to my children. I love them, but somehow manage to forget that when the irritating things happen and I’m too drained to be patient. Second belief would be that I’m also a failure to my great husband. I’m the wife with such high expectations that he can never meet. Basically, my doubts come in the form of “my family deserves better and I’m sorry they ended up with me”. Anyways, I hope that helps with your book writing and that this can help you speak to women experiencing similar doubts.

    I completed your survey. I am a new P31 subscriber and I’ve been through a very difficult 18 months. God has sustained me and my faith in Him is strong but after finding my spouse cheating at age 61 I feel rather useless these days. Thank you so much for your encouraging words.

    Sincerely,
    Crystal

    Thank you for letting God use you with words and in so many ways. You have touched my heart many mornings!!

  313. I completed your survey. Your post for May 28th reminded me that God is available ALL the time for ME. I need to remember to come to him when hurts and doubts plague me, remember he is always there, and trust that he has healed those situations causing the hurts and doubts. Thank you for following God and helping us.

  314. I have completed the survey. It was good to take a moment and think about how doubts affect my life. Thanks for your blog!

    In the rush of things last week, I filed this devotional to come back to it later. As God would have it, I came on a morning around 5:04 my times feeling broken, worthless, and asking the Lord to end my life now! I have been unemployed now for the first time in my life for 6 months! with no evidence of obtaining employment. I know that the Lord has a purpose in my life, but the enemy always bring my past failures, hurts to discourage me. After reading and taking the survey, I knew why I was suppose to read this at a later date. The Lord knew I would be in this”valley” place. Thank you and much blessing on your book.

    I am ready to get it through my head and stop being consumed by self doubt! I'm looking forward to your book. Keep up the good work!
