First, before I share on the conference, let me share that....I absolutely loved flying! (even with a few unexpected delays, setting off the security alarms and getting frisked!)
She Speaks offered a preconference women's ministry leadership seminar. Our opening session was lead by Wendy Blight called Taking Your Calling to a Deeper Place. Here are just a few nuggets that I was blessed with from Wendy's message:
- Join God where He is at work
- We need to passionately connect with Christ.
- We learn by sitting at the foot of the cross.
- Jesus engaged the enemy and we will face the enemy too.
- We need to be prepared for the battle.
"Lord, I am not great. But You, Lord, are very great. In Your immeasurable power and greatness, in your absolute sovereignty take my little, insignificant life and make a difference far beyond my capabilities."
When I was preparing for the conference, my prayer was that I would meet God and hear Him, maybe even get a sense of the direction for His plans for my life. While, I didn't have any "defining moments", what I did hear and experience was that God has a special calling designed for each of His children. So, right now, I am going to continue on the same path....slowing down so I can hear Him speak.
