....that is how I want to live.
With my hands open to all that God has for me.
No longer with my fists clenched....
...trying to control.
This past weekend I spent three days in Concord, NC attending She Speaks, a speaker/writer/leadership conference hosted by Proverbs 31 Ministry.
I know I shared with y'all that I was overwhelmed and a bit nervous about attending. God had clearly led me to go...but had not revealed "why" I was going. The unknown brought a little, ok a lot, of fear and anxiousness.
However, it didn't take Him long to speak directly to my heart!!
The 1st seminar I attended was with Renee Swope and it seemed she had written her message personally for me. Her words brought a realization that God and I had some work to do. She gave me so much to think about and I spent the rest the evening wrestling with her words.
One of the things I loved about She Speaks is that the speakers/leaders made themselves available all throughout the weekend. I had the opportunity to speak with Renee one-on-one and share my heart. She was so encouraging!
Every session exceeded my expectations. I learned so much. And really, by the end of Saturday, I wasn't sure I could fit one more piece of information in my brain!!! I am still sifting through my notes, processing it all.
Not only did God work on my heart this weekend, but He also revealed to me a ministry idea that I think He wants me to pursue. I am praying through it right now and hopefully will be able to share it with you all soon!
I have so much more to share....
...but I'll stop now. It's a lot for one post.
You're welcome. :)
