Praise the Lord! On October 12th I was very humbled and privileged to speak at a women’s event, Bagels & Blessings at Edgewater Alliance Church. This season’s theme is JOY, and it was just that to bring God’s word to a room filled with beautiful sisters in Christ, and perhaps some that were searching for answers.
I was super blessed to have my mom, sister, and niece in attendance. My family used mom’s cell to video tape most of the message, just missing the first segment. There were two stories not captured on video, “The $5 Bank Story”, and “The Peggy Story”, of which I pray I will have another opportunity to share those again. The $5 bank story tied into how Awesome our God is; our Jehovah Jireh, Our Provider, and El Roi, the Strong One Who Sees Me. Next we explored “wrong doors” after the Peggy story. How sometimes we stand in front of wrong doors, doors that look attractive and inviting, only to find they are not the doors God has for us to walk through. If the door has been shut, stop looking through the window! That we can trust Him to open the right doors; He opens doors no man can open, and shuts doors no man can shut. Praise God!!
The video picks up with a word about wrong directions. “A change in direction begins with our reflection” We were made in His image; are we living a God-focused life?
I truly LOVE speaking, and know that it is not me but The Holy Spirit who inspires and delivers the message; I am but a willing vessel, and boy am I willing!!! I so love speaking, I have no fear of it at all. I pray God opens more doors that allow me to speak wherever He calls and according to His will.
