Wow. I am still unpacking wisdom from beautiful women serving God in mighty ways this side of Heaven! Lysa TerKeurst. Suzie Eller. Nicki Koziarz. Courtney DeFeo. Wendy Blight. Micca Campbell. Glynnis Whitwer. She Speaks 16 Conference delivered on its early promise to “hook you up to a fire hydrant and let go.” In the very best of ways, of course…
You could choose from three tracks: writing, speaking and leadership. The classes you chose depended heavily on the track you picked. I chose the writing track and was able to meet with two book publishers last Saturday. I was completely freaked and cautiously excited! I was so moved by Lysa TerKeurst’s presentation Friday evening, it changed my entire path. While I would love to say both publishers eagerly wanted to snap up my book concepts; that would not be the truth. I got to hear Lysa’s confident voice reassuring me over the rejections of jobs, directions and prayer; the answer won’t always be what I am longing to hear just in time that I wanted it to happen. The very next morning, I would face it for myself. I had a choice on how to process my disappointment and acknowledge the fear I felt or walk away in shame and humiliation, taking it as a personal jab to my so called calling.
Then, I remembered the powerful message that Steven Furtick preached and we worshipped to on a bright and sunny Sunday morning in Ballayntine about how we believed God has moved our mountains and that He can do it again. And I remember what Lysa TerKeurst spoke Friday evening that cut me to the core.
And I remember the purpose of all of this is to carry the torch for our Savior who enables and strengthens us when we call on Him. Remembering to Ask Him to make sure I do my part up to the end of myself and then depending on Him to come through in His perfect timing, answers and will for my life. He’s done it before. And I believe He’s gonna do it again!
I believe this is a new season that requires a lot of reliance on God and a faith sell out from me. I’ve tried other ways and nothing made me happy, so I am finally starting this season out right. Joined the #believeboldly group and dedicated to waking up at 5 am to spend an appointment with Jesus in my prayer closet. I think this will help tremendously and why am I just now realizing this. Better late than never!!
Ending on a song that sums this weekend up perfectly.
More to come….
