Thankful Thursday


This week I am so THANKFUL for the amazing women's conference I had the honor to speak at last Saturday. God was so GOOD! Many women recommitted their lives to the Lord. God healed hearts and touched lives. His Spirit whispered love and encouragement. He healed the brokenhearted, binding up their wounds. It was an incredible time of worship. It is always such a privilege to bring a message from the Lord.

Our Jesus came to set the captives free, give sight to the blind, heal the lame...

He does this TODAY and it was so AWESOME to witness Him do it last week!

Thank You, Jesus.

What was so tender and precious was that last December I had "lost" my passion for speaking. It was such hard time in my life. (You can check out my December and January blog posts for details.) I was certain that God had closed the door to speaking and that this season of my life was over.

The panic came in knowing that I had to speak on January 31!

I cried out to God, "Lord, I am willing to accept that this season is over. I am sad about it. But, I trust You. But.....what I am going to do for this conference?????!!!!"

I prayed. I sought God. I fasted. I prayed. I washed myself in the Word. I prayed. I sought God. I fasted.

And.....God restored my passion! He FILLED me with His Spirit. He "opened wide my mouth" and HE filled it!

I am AGAIN sure of my calling! Until He closes the door...

I'M BAAAAAAAAAACK!

I would love to come speak at any of your ladies' events. Please email me for details!
