I was 25 years old when I surrendered my life to the Lord.
My life was a mess. It was filled… with emptiness (take that for an oxymoron!)
I would be lying to you if I said that, in a magic moment, when I confessed my sins and asked Jesus to take over… e.v.e.r.t.h.i.n.g changed for the better. If anything, when you live a certain lifestyle for 25 years, changing the course takes time, loss and pain. It’s certainly not easy.
In the past two decades, there have been moments when the course was so clear before me, and my assignment and certainty of where God was taking me kept me focused for the challenges ahead. But then again there were many a time when the old nature threatened to rise up and take over… or the enemy worked hard to make me doubt that I could ever be enough to please God.
If you have been a Christian for a while, you know what I mean. Sometimes our past haunts us… others doubt us… fear cripples us… and we forget whom we are (and what we have) in Christ.
I believe that is why God put it in my heart to choose 1 Peter 2:9 as the theme verse of the SHE SOARS Women’s Conference this year.
“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
Because many Jesus girls have days, weeks or years, when they feel more like a royal mess than Royal Priesthood.
On October 14th – this Saturday – seven women who have been tested and proven by fire have been planning a day that could potentially change the course of your life.
Yes, I believe that. Why?
Because I can certainly look back in these twenty-plus years and recognize certain events – whether sermons, books or conferences – which helped build and shape my faith.
One sermon that was used by God to confirm His calling for my life. One conference’s altar call which became a landmark for complete surrender – a turning point on my walk as a child of God.
Yes! There certainly were events or situations that helped strengthen my awareness and assurance of whom I am in Christ:
A CHOSEN Daughter of the Owner of the Universe.
NO MATTER WHAT!
I am His Possession.
And everything He possesses… all His promises… are Mine!
Hey! Jesus’ Girl… if you feel like a royal mess more than His Royal Priesthood, come join us this Saturday! We are ready to share His Word with you, and help you rise up to embrace, grasp, claim, and live on the truth that you are CHOSEN!
Chosen to receive His supernatural peace.
Chosen to have your deepest wounds healed.
Chosen to proclaim the “excellences of Him who has called you out of darkness… and into His marvelous LIGHT.”
Yes – seven hours can change the course of your spiritual life! From 9 am to 4 pm this Saturday – you don’t want to miss it!
My prayer is that you will look back one day, even twenty years from October 14, and remember – That was one of those pivotal moments that changed my life as a believer.
