For the last few days I've been keeping up with the news surrounding Hurricane Patricia. As the strongest land falling pacific hurricane on record, the attention surrounding its movement has been of both awe and wonder, as well as apprehension and fear. As I prayed for safety and protection of the people predicted to be in its path, I was struck with another thought. This hurricane, which also happens to be my namesake, has been described as ‘powerful’, ‘unstoppable’, and ‘a force to be reckoned with’. It stopped me in my tracks as I asked myself if I could be described as such a mighty force for Jesus. 

While I don't want to be classified as a natural disaster, reckless and potentially harmful, I do want to be courageous and strong in my stance for the Lord! 

I want to be on fire for Him. I want to be bold in proclaiming His truth, and confidant as I stand for righteousness.
I don't want fear to stop me from walking in my calling, or self-doubt to convince me that my story of grace and redemption isn't worth being told. When the going gets tough, I want to keep pressing forward. And when my back is against the wall I want to use that wall as a springboard, propelling me to new heights in my relationship with Christ. I want to honor Him with my thoughts, words and actions, being more in tune with the Holy Spirit that lives in me. I want to continue to die to self so that others see more of Him and so much less of me.

You have the ability to plant seeds of faith, and move mountains with your belief and conviction. You can intercede in prayer, exhibit kindness and love, and do so as well equipped daughters of the Mighty King. Sisters, in your home, your neighborhood, at school, and on the job, you are a powerful force for God. Let your passion for our Father be known! 

This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. - Joshua 1:9
