Where to start??? It was a GLORIOUS weekend. Women filled the halls as they rushed from one session to the next filling their toolboxes with the tools they need to fulfill their calling. Women would stop me and share, “This is the best conference I’ve ever been too. I’ll definitely be back next year!” Even the hotel staff was drawn in. Curiously, they would peek into the conference room’s wide-eye in wonder. “What’s going on in there? What’s this conference all about?” They’d inquire.
Ah! Don’t you love it when God draws others in such a way that it causes them to ask, “What’s it all about it and how can I be a part of it?” Many hotel workers and staff took time from their busy schedules to enter into our prayer room and meet with God.
Remarkably, that’s what our Speaker/Writer Conference is all about. Don’t miss understand me. Sure, we teach others how to be a better speaker, how to write a book, and market themselves. BUT, our main purpose is to make God known as we were challenged to do Saturday night by our guest speaker, Jennifer Rothschild.
Proverbs 31 Ministries wants women to experience God in a deeper way. We want them NOT to pursue ministry but rather pursue God. Why? Because true ministry is birthed out of our relationship with God. That’s freedom, girls!
We don’t have to work at it, compete in it, or wonder what God wants from us when we’re seeking Him. When you and I are seeking the Lord, we’ll find ourselves on the path of His plan and purpose for our lives. And here’s the cool thing…nothing on earth or under earth can prevent God’s plan from happening. Nothing!
The bible tells us that God’s plans alone stand. That’s confidence for when we’re in the wait, girls. Though it may seem like the speaking engagements will never come or our book will never be published, remember it’s all in God’s timing. That’s how it has worked for me.
I spoke for eight years before I had my own book published. However, while I was in the wait, I had articles and devotionals published. I also co-authored three books. It’s true. God’s timing is not always our timing. But, this we know… His promises are certain, and when we’re ready they are delivered right on time.
Come back this week. I have many She Speak stories to share with you! Now…go make God known today!
