Lent letters no.1 true fullness

I don’t like emptiness. Whether the car needs fuel, there are no tea bags left in the jar, the digits in my bank account are dwindling. These things need filling. I like them full. That way, I can get to where I’m going, I’m appropriately caffeinated and I can buy myself something new

I’ve been reflecting on how I approach God regarding fullness. I come to him requesting, pleading for him to fill my finances, my confidence, my purpose. I plead for him to fill a void that I see in my life, with stuff

God redirected me to the story of the woman at the well in John 4. She arrives at the well, with one agenda; to fill her jar with water. But there she finds Jesus, the living water! She meets the man who knows everything she ever did and can meet her every need

She went to have her jar filled with water, but instead Jesus gives her true fullness, she can’t help but share the good news with the town and, catch this – literally leaves the water jar behind (verse 28), the reason she went to the well, to run and tell everyone.

God wants to bless me. He wants to bless my finances and bless the whole of my life. But I’m asking Jesus to fill me. Not my stuff. I’m seeking his kingdom first, all other things will be added in their time. I am the container he wants to experience true fullness, to overflow!

This lent we are the jars he wants to fill.

Remember this:
“But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” John 4:14

Read this:
John 4 (NLT) – Jesus and the Samaritan Woman

Journal this:
Q. God, what are the ‘jars’ in my life that I have been asking you to fill?
Q. God, what is it you’re wanting to fill me with in this season?

I struggled with low mood but God has been setting me free

Hey Bethany tell us about your style: “It’s mainly just anything comfortable. I spend a lot of time in baggy clothes and XXL jumpers. But I do love to sometimes change it up and go for more of a street-smart look. My style has changed a lot but right now that’s what it seems to be.”

What are you doing at the moment?: “Right now I’m finishing an internship at a church in Bournemouth with youth and that’s where my passion really lies. In September I’m hoping to move to California to train on youth missions which I’m super excited about! I think the thing about youth which I’m most passionate about is seeing individual transformation of the young people’s hearts when they allow Jesus into their lives and to work in them. I love coming alongside people and encouraging them along their journey with Jesus.”

What worship song do you have on repeat?: “It’s Promises by Maverick City. If you haven’t listened to this I would highly recommend it, it’s been such a declaration song for me in this season. To trust in his promises even when everything seems so chaotic can be challenging but it brings so much peace!

Can you tell us something transformational that God has done in your life?: “As a result of being super unwell during sixth-form my mental health got really bad. I struggled with severe mood swings, general low mood and anxiety and it began to take control of certain parts of my life and relationships. Over this past year, God has really been setting me free from this and I can already see the change in how I respond to things around me and how I view myself and my relationships. He is so good and I know He is gonna bring this work to completion! Joy is something Jesus freely gives us, we just have to choose it everyday!”

God helped me find my voice

Hey Audrey tell us about your style: “I would say it’s authentically me. I love old, I love comfy – I love sustainable and just adore colour (especially green and mustard!). When I dress in the mornings, I find joy in the daily creative exercise of choosing the ways in which I can channel my inner world with outward style – hairdo and all.”

What are you doing at the moment?: “I work as a brand strategy consultant in sustainability. I get to work with a whole flock of individuals who are hellbent on changing the world for our good and for our planet – one business at a time. I also love to write – to write articles, write songs (oh yes – I’m in a band called The Salts – Christian puns galore!) and to write letters – how I love writing letters to people! Last but by no means least, I am extremely passionate about young women and that’s the reason I am extremely honoured to be a part of Rebel Hearts Rebel Girl’s amazing magazine – Truth, equipping women in the word and in wisdom.”

What worship song do you have on repeat?: “The honest truth is too many to list here! I’ve been worshipping more with the songs that I’ve written and spontaneously coming up with than normal. Some of these I would barely call songs by the way (!), but ultimately, they are the anthems that my soul has needed to declare during this time. And P.S. If you’ve not heard Oh What A Saviour by HTB Worship – highly recommend!”

We’d love to hear something transformational God has done in your life: “Man who I would be without God is not worth imagining. Where I have seen God move so incredibly so powerfully, has been in finding my voice. From a teen with low self esteem, depression – to a young woman who felt inhibited by verbal dyspraxia and dyslexia, I look back at all the many things that I had allowed to silence my voice and the opportunities I let go to fear. But ever faithful, God continues to grow my giftings – putting me in spaces and spheres I could scarcely have imagined for myself! He has grown my vision and nurtured my boldness. And now, well you can’t shut me up!”

I grew up in a family with no faith and am now ordained

Hey Hannah tell us about your style:
“I was once told I blend fashion and function, which I think is a good description: I like to choose comfort and practicality and hopefully a sense of style, without trying too hard! I’d say it’s a mix of smart skatewear / tomboy / boxy / casual / norm-core, with a dip into outdoors-wear on occasion. Nothing too fancy. And as much second-hand as possible.”

What are you doing right now?:
“I’m a Reverend at a church in Brighton. Week to week I host our Church Online service with my friend James, and oversee our Leadership Development Year programme for young leaders, alongside a host of other things. I’m passionate about seeing young leaders raised up within the church, particularly women. As a young(ish) woman in church leadership, I know there are lots of limitations and barriers to young women leading, but it’s God’s heart to see us take authority in all spheres of influence, not just the church. Any part I can play in that, I will!”

What worship song do you have on repeat?
“Oh goodness, my poor husband is subjected to endless worship song ‘repeats’. I’m a big one for full-blown worship sets on YouTube. If I had to choose one it’s probably My Prayer – Live, Bright City (classiiiiiic!)”

We’d love to hear something transformational God has done in your life.
“I am still baffled that having grown up in a family that doesn’t know Jesus – no faith background, no church – I am now ordained into the Church of England. I was invited by a friend to a church youth group when I was at secondary school, and piece by piece I discovered Jesus for myself. I owe this in part to exceptional discipleship and youth leaders (go go go youth leaders!), the power of invitation (it works!), and of course the heart of God pursuing me. Despite my parents’ certainty I was going to grow out of it, deep down I knew then that I had made a life-long commitment and was never going back. Who would have thought years later I’d be Rev’d Hannah Milne?!! Madness.”

We marched round Bloomingdales praying

Hey Caragh tell us about your style: “I swear 75% of my clothes are from the second hand clothes market in Uganda where I live up until lockdown. It’s a thrift shop dream. I feel like I live in denim jackets and sparkly tops. Since lockdown I’ve just found myself wearing really unnecessarily extra sparkly tops just to work in my living room in the week lol.”

What are you doing right now?: “I run an organisation called Zena. We’re a non profit social enterprise that works with female entrepreneurs in rural Uganda. Our program exists to provide debt free access to capital and education for women with a business dream under the poverty line! We work with incredible innovative women who are changing their communities by employing other individuals and putting their children in school. We design a line of fun earrings to fund our work which we sell online in the US and the UK. It’s the biggest adventure and privilege of my life.”

What worship song do you have on repeat?: “Let Revival Come, People & Songs.”

We’d love to hear something transformational God has done in your life: “About a year ago, my co-founder and I were praying like crazy that we’d get a meeting with the fashion director of a department store. We felt God had said we would be in one by the end of 2 years as a brand, but it’s really hard to get into one before your brand is 3 years old! We felt God wanted us to contend for it so we took it walls of Jericho style and walked around the Bloomingdales flagship in New York 7 times every day for 10 days. Had to switch out our heels for flats pretty quickly. On our final day there we received a call to tell us something had changed and we had a 9am with the fashion director at Bloomingdales. WE FREAKED OUT and ended up walking out of the meeting with an order in our hands and designs signed off. Our publicist told us in the elevator on the way down ‘I’ve been in the fashion industry 20 years and I’ve never had a meeting like that in my life’. GOD MOVES MOUNTAINS PEOPLE.”

I’ve a heart for those on the outside

Hi I’m Portia. I’m from Durban, South Africa.

How would you describe your style?: “I would describe my style as simple but flattering. I love anything that sits on my waist. I’m a flats kind of girl. I like simple items like blouses and dresses that are comfortable.”

What are you passionate about?: “Being someone who grew up feeling different and left out, I know the feeling of wanting to be included. So I have a heart for those who feel alienated by society and also anyone with mental health issues. I want to help them know that they are worth every breath and they can live confidently in the promises of God.”

What worship song do you have on repeat?: “Move your heart by UPPERROOM – it reminds me that it’s not about me but about Him.”

Can you tell us something transformational God has done in your life?: “At the age of 10, I choked on a fireball sweet, it’s huge in size and made of hard bubble gum. When I realised I was choking I thought it was the last day of my life because it was larger than my tiny throat. Then, around 11 years later, when I was 21, I started experiencing nightmares when I was sleeping. It was like I was choking on a big seed but I couldn’t spit it out. Sometimes I would scream and then I would wake up and realise that it wasn’t real. So my family prayed in my room and I was healed and delivered from the trauma. He’s a way maker kind of God and if he came through for me then he will for you too. That’s who he is!”
