Amazing. Invigorating.Relaxing. Encouraging.Motivating. Holy.
Those are just a few words that describe this weekend that I just had.
I spent 7 hours without the kids and attended our church’s “Relevant Women’s Conference.”
I was like a sponge soaking in all the encouragement, Worship, awesome teaching from God’s word, and fellowship of other women.
The impact this conference had on me is just beyond any words I could use. Imagine a plant that is wilted and sits in a pot that has had no water poured into it in weeks. I came like that to the conference. As I sat there at the conference I felt like I was having living water poured on my dry weary soul and the water reached down deep to the core of who I am. It revitalized this mom, wife and daughter of God.
I don’t want to forget the truths I learned this weekend. Truths that enabled me to see how beautiful I am and how valuable I am. A reminder that God uses every experience we go through to reveal His Love, Healing and Purpose for our lives. Most weeks I go through life so focused on self and just my own little realm of influence. I was reminded this weekend that my life is more than just affecting my little family…God has a broader purpose for us being alive and I need to look for the opportunities God has placed around me, outside of the four walls of my home to encourage and be a light to others around me.
