Years later–I’m living my Dream

 

Horizon at the break of day

Horizon at the break of day

 

When I was a little girl I had this recurring dream, that I was on a huge battlefield amongst thousands of dying and wounded people. I would wake up in the morning feeling like I had worked all night bringing life and healing to those who were perishing.

This dream became my thoughts in the daytime. I would stare out the window and recall my dream from the night before- it consumed me. I knew God was calling me. I would be a nurse and go into the mission field to bring life.

Well, chemistry class proved that I wasn’t called to go into the medical profession. I passed that class by the skin of my teeth, literally. This confused me, because I knew you had to be good in science to be a nurse. I continued to dream about bringing life and healing to thousands on the battlefield in my sleep. My passion and calling actually intensified.

As most of you know, I’m a speaker and writer for Proverbs 31 Ministries. Last week they announced our “Join Us on the Front Lines” campaign.  When I read those words I recalled the dream that I had dreamt hundreds and hundreds of times in years past– Endless numbers of people sprawled out on an open field waiting for urgent care.

I’ve had the privilege of writing devotions for P31 that go out to nearly a half million people a day.  This past fall I traveled almost every weekend as an ambassador  carrying the gospel to the sick and dying.

Halleluiah- I don’t need chemistry to be on the battlefield! We’re bringing life and healing to those who are perishing every day! I’m on the front lines administering care with Proverbs 31 Ministries under the leadership of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

I’ve seen more people receive Christ as their personal Savior this year than ever before!

I’ve received hundreds and hundreds of emails from families saying their marriages have been restored, broken lives mended, crushed spirits made whole, parents given hope and more because of our devotions, books, speaking, radio, Bible studies and more!  Oh my goodness I wish you could see all of what God is doing in the field.

We’re on the front lines of the battlefield ministering to millions of women around the world.  I want you to be a part of it!  Pray for us, the battlefield is vast and it cost money to go into all the world and preach the gospel—bringing life and healing to those who are perishing.

The dream I dreamt when I was a little girl has come true. I’m overcome by the awesome opportunity to minister to millions with Proverbs 31 ministries. Will you join us on the front lines? Have you had dreams of helping those whom you’ve never met? Would you like to help support P31?

  1. This post gave me goosebumps. It is amazing how our dreams and calling can take a different form than we expect.

  2. Sharon,
    For some reason the Lord keeps bringing you to my mind for prayer! I am so blown away by His faithfulness to bring such dreams to life. It’s true, I find it often comes in a different form that I first felt when pressed by His Spirit but oh, how much more beautiful it is every.single.time. Thank you for sharing your heart.

    In His Abounding Love, Erin Thomas

    Sharon, as I watched the video, I thought back to how the Lord brought me to Proverbs31 and then so enlightened my journey with Him, deepening my relationship with Jesus by changing my belief in Him to believing His promises to me through His Word, my Bible! Thanks to all of you inspirational women!

    Sharon,
    It is so neat when God shows us what he is doing in our lives or wants
    us to do when maybe we were thinking something else.
    May God continue to bless you and your family as you
    minister to so many.

  7. I love it! So proud to know you. It’s my privilege to offer up prayers on your behalf! God is so faithful to the call he places on our lives. Thank you for the reminder… Such an encouragement! Love you!
