Organizing the Inside 365 Days

Empowering Christian Women To Get Organized and Discover God's Plan for Their Lives

Organizing the Inside – A Special Note From Liz

Yesterday marked a huge milestone for Organizing the Inside 365 Days. This blog originally began after much prayer, with fear and trembling. In the beginning I was not very comfortable in an environment where it was necessary for me to be vulnerable and transparent because of traces from my past. God had a different plan and out of reluctant obedience I started Organizing the Inside 365 Days. Knowing that titling it “365” would create a daily discipline that I’d often struggled with maintaining; I set out on a wonderful journey. Unwilling to write about anything that I was not committed to being first partaker of; I knew God was calling me into a deeper more meaningful relationship with Him.

Thank you for being there! You will likely never know how much your comments, likes, and emails have meant to me personally. The blessings I’ve experienced by way of new friendships, encouragement, and even challenges from my online community of writers and friends has been absolutely phenomenal. I’ve had the honor of reading posts from many of you, that were some of the most heart touching, soul-stirring writings I have ever read… this includes work from many world-renowned authors. Words cannot express the true honor and privilege it has been to serve you by sharing what God has placed on my heart each day of this journey.

God has now led me to do something new in ministry and business. As I prepare for the exciting venture that is ahead I’ll often think about the honor of this privilege I’ve shared with my online family and friends. Organizing the Inside has somehow become part of God’s unique big picture plan and I’m thrilled to see what He does next. While the journey doesn’t end here it does enter a new phase.

Each one of you has been and will continue to be in my prayers daily. Lord willing, I will stop by often and leave a like or comment on your blogs that I have grown to enjoy reading so much. I hope you will continue to follow my writings as I continue to seek God for His direction. In the book of Ephesians, chapter three, Paul seemed to capture the true essence of my heartfelt prayer to God for each of you who have shared this journey of Organizing the Inside 365 Days.

When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.
~Ephesians 3:14-21

Oh, Liz, I think you are SO AMAZING and the work the Lord is doing in you is just incredible! It is such an honor to know one who leads the way as you do. I saw that 365th day coming up and I knew it was a huge milestone. I will look for your weekly posting now. This has been so helpful to me. Your writings are so inspired by the Holy Spirit that I am just sure His hand was gently over yours as you wrote.
I love your reference to “reluctant obedience”. Beautifully and honestly stated.
I wish we lived closer together, but we are sisters in Christ and I love you.
Thank you for the blessing you pour over us across this internet as we breathe in your words.
I think you are special.
Love,
In His grip,
Ann

Hey Ann,
I know, I saw day 365 approaching and would just feel a bit of sadness, then I tried not to think about it. I knew far off that I would likely not continue to post something every day. I just have to be obedient to God and I know He’s having me to do things differently, right now. Yes Ann we are sisters in Him and His love binds our hearts together in unity. Thank you for your kindness…you’ve touched my life and I know my readers also appreciate your comments often warm and funny, but humble. Let’s keep moving forward, I’m looking forward to reading more of your new blog posts too.

Thanks so much Shannon. I am so glad I met you! Have you ever been excited and nervous all at the same time. Thanks for your prayers and support. I like “Big Blessing” we both have to keep moving forward toward the goals He gives.

Liz, Thank YOU for your inspiring and encouraging posts. I shall miss your daily articles, but you do have to move on. 365 days is a long time … I look forward to your weekly posts.

All the best!

Hi Catherine, Wow you’re not kidding, it is a long time, but it doesn’t seem that way at all. It’s something about writing that you can easily lose track of time. I know you understand. What an honor for me to serve God’s beautiful women and men too. Thank you for all your comments and encouragement, I look forward to hearing from you again soon.

Hello Liz

You’re welcome. I’m sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. I hope your ‘back to school’ season is going well. September is always such a rush. May God bless you in all your new projects.

Hey Liz, how are you doing? It sounds like God has something new and exciting for you. You deserve all that God has for you as you have been faithful. Onward and upward to the next level of success. Do not despise small beginnings. Thank you for your wonderful, inspiring daily devotionals. They certainly have gotten me through some trials and joy in my life. Thank you for your efforts and keep up the good work girl! God bless you!! Love you! Karen

Hey Sister! So nice to hear from you. Yep God is moving me out of the boat and into the water… or should I say onto the water. I appreciate you being there and I’m so happy God was able to use my writings to speak to you. I tried so hard to seek His direction every day on what to post. I just want to stay in His will. I often wrestled with the truth, because I want to live it more than write about it. I realize because of folks like you that when we each do our part the whole body is taken care of. Thanks, Karen…Keep it real for Jesus.

Thanks for being obedient to God these 365 days. You have been faithful in the one thing He asked, He will reward you with something greater. You have been a blessing to me with your daily doses and encouraging me when you visit my blog and leave motivating comments.
Blessings

Thank you Emma,
Your sweet and gentle spirit comes out in your writings…so plain and simple and real. I love reading your post because they remind my of being at my Aunti’s house or like something strangely familiar, even though we have never met. I know it’s the unpretentious love of the Lord in you. Thank you for being there! Maybe one day I’ll get to see those paintings in person.

You have reached 365 days of faithfulness, trials, and triumphs. But God work is not done but elevated in the highest power. How delighted the Lord must be with you as a daughter of faith. I am encouraged today to strive for perfectness in Christ! Thank you Lord, for allowing me and Liz to cross paths.
