The suitcases are ready.
Hot coffees in hand. And we’re off on an adventure. A road trip to a new destination.
The freedom of being free.
All things are new.
Running wild and free under His protection.
Isn’t this what we long for?
Freedom to run our race WILD and FREE within our lane.
There, in this sweet spot is His guidance, protection, favor, and strength for the journey.
There we thrive, and know Him more.
There we run wild and free and know who and whose we are.
We can support others.
We can encourage those a few steps behind us.
We can pass batons and move into our future leading well and full and okay with the gifts God has given others, that differ from ours.
You can sing, I can’t, and that is okay. You sing your heart out.
I’ll write and teach my heart out.
As long as we’re giving our best, passing batons well, and living forward, leaning into all God has for us, and giving our best encouragement out. We can.
Where the leaves are turning a vibrant fiery orange and red.
Where the cool air beckons and the hot coffee calls.
Where inspiration flows.
Where we run wild and free!
– Joelle Povolni
P.S. Don’t let the fire leave your bones:
A candle flickers in the wind as the wind tries to blow out the light, but the light remains. The fire in your heart burns bright for the Lord. Let it burn so bright that no wind can blow it out. Let it illuminate your way and be a light to all those around you.
These words were handed to me on a card at a Pink Impact Women’s Conference held by Gateway Church. Every woman I was with received a different message on their card. I was in tears then, and I framed this card. Today, I’m passing these words onto you with much love.
