Remember the little boy from Stuart Little. He woke up in the morning that his parents were going to go adopt a baby brother or sister and ran around the house yelling, “It’s today, it’s today, it’s today!”
That is what I feel like this morning. It’s today! Today I get to go with a wonderful friend on a road trip to a fancy hotel and hang out with 650 women who love them some Jesus. We are going to the annual SheSpeaks conference that is put on by Proverbs 31 Ministries. These are women that are writers, speakers, leaders, and even teens who feel a calling on their heart to spread the word about how wonderful and awesome and all the other great adjectives that you can come up with to describe God and tell about what Jesus has done in their lives. It’s the most important message there is out there and it needs to be heard by everyone. Someone told it to me. Someone helped me to understand that all my stuff was just that, stuff, and what was so important was that I had a heavenly Father who loved me. No matter what. That’s the essence of scripture. The essence of every persons story. No matter what.
Because I will be totally immersed in learning more and talking a lot, and honing my craft, I’m not sure how much I will get to blog. So, over the next few days there will be a lot of activity here because I am going to have some old posts run, things you might not have read before and hey, I learned a lot by going back and reading, so you never know, even if you have read it, it might “read differently” now.
Please leave a comment, gimme some feedback. Would love to know your thoughts and any input you might have.
For now, I gotta go get dressed and ready to go because “It’s TODAY!!!!!”
Lord, thank you thank you thank you for all you have given me. I am blessed beyond measure and loved more than I know. Father, be with all of my friends this week as they travel from all over the world to come together and learn more about how to do things YOUR way and not our own way. Help us each one to have grace for each other, patience, and to know that everything that is done this weekend should have at it’s root a love for You. Don’t let us get distracted, jealous, or insecure about ANYTHING because God, those things are not from You. But help each woman rest in YOU this weekend and hear Your still small voice. I pray for the P31 girls that are working so hard to put this together for us. And bless the staff and conference/hotel organizers, staff, and all who will be serving see YOUR love father in each of the women that they come into contact with. Thank you Father for your SON and thank you for your love.
