12 days offline and a heart stirred!

Posted by Marianne Petersen on

Hello Friend,

How are you? I hope this email finds you well. Can you believe we are coming to the end of March already? We are fast approaching the end of the first quarter of the year. If you follow us on Facebook and Instagram, you would have noticed that we went offline. 

To be honest with you, when I felt God nudging me to pull away from social media more so from the business side of things, I didn't obey straight away. It took me almost three whole days before I pulled away. Isn't it funny when we think we are 'too busy' to push pause? 

It's been 12 days since I was last active on social media and all I can say is THANK YOU JESUS, and thank you for your grace! He truly knows what is best for us. 

As a new business owner it is so easy to get caught up in the 'doing'. There is always an endless to-do-list that comes with the day to day operation of a business, not to mention balancing business with all other areas of life.

Kairos Creative Studio launched in September 2018 and it has been 6 amazing months and in this short time, I have met the most precious people, I have heard the most incredible stories and I have made the most beautiful jewellery pieces and gifts. Above all of these things, the greatest honour would have to be asking God what His heart is for someone and being able to pen that into a card. I can't even begin to explain how many times I have cried writing out His heartbeat for someone and for their season. He is always talking to us and always speaking life over us. The testimonies that have been emailed through in response, has blown me away and I have been in awe of the goodness and love of the Father for His children.

In light of all of this, He wanted to pull me away to take me into a deeper understanding of His heartbeat for Kairos Creative Studio. During the 12 days, this is exactly what He did. It was minute by minute inquiring of the Father and asking Him to share His heart. I can't wait to share with you what He spoke to me about, in the near future. I can't deny that my heart and spirit was being stirred and set on fire.

One thing I can share is that He was speaking to me about the number of Kingdom assignments that are awaiting a response. There are so many people right now on the earth who know that they have been created for more but they are not sure what that looks like. Some people, they know what they have been called to but are yet to respond. 

Matthew 22:14 says that 'Many are called, but few are chosen'. I love The Passion Translation version that says 'For everyone is invited to enter in, but few respond in excellence'.

WOW! EVERYONE is invited but FEW respond. God is looking for two things, first is a response and second, He is not looking for any response - He is looking for those who will respond in EXCELLENCE! Friend, the invitation requires a RESPONSE! Our Kingdom assignments require a response.

I believe we are living in a time where God is waiting for us to respond to His call. He has mantles and kingdom assignments that He is wants to give His people but He is waiting.

Selah (Pause and reflect)

After this time with God, I realised more than ever that for me, what He has called me to do through Kairos Creative Studio is just a part of the Kingdom assignment that He has for my life. I am excited for what God has for us all. I am so stirred that we are living in the days that were once prayed for. 

There is a Kingdom assignment for your life friend! I believe wholeheartedly that the Father wants to speak to you about what He has called you to fulfil in your lifetime. He is wanting to take you on an adventure. He wants to show you things that you couldn't possibly even begin to imagine. But it all begins with a response.

Would you take some time out and seek Him? 

Love Marianne x
