Well friends, I am back from the Women of Faith conference, and I am exhausted. Not only physically, but mentally. I am definitely still in the processing phase. There was so much information, so many speakers, so much scripture, so many stories to tell, that I can't even put into words how I feel.
I will say that I learned everyone has a story to tell, each of us have an issue or area that God is using in our lives. What that story is, is different for each of us. Mine will hopefully be journaled and used for His glory in this blog. I saw each woman that shared this weekend be real and vulnerable before thousands of women. Why can't we be real like that with each other? What is holding us back? What is our story? What are our issues? Beth Moore spoke about the comfort of God (2 Corinthians 2:1-11), that comfort is matchless to any other. God's comfort can be found and used much more effectively when we SHARE our stories, experiences, and spiritual journeys authentically.
Let me be REAL people, I have 11 kids, a wonderful husband, a crazy life, but I DO NOT have it all together. Maybe once we tear down these walls, let people in and see the real stuff we all have we will be more effective in our ministries. Beth spoke about this, and I was really convicted about letting others know I want to be real, and share my life so I can be a comfort to others.
My sweet friends, I love you all, let's all be more real, let each other in and see what God can do!!!
