So thankful for the opportunity to hear from God through many speakers and leaders during these nine days of staff conference here in beautiful Colorado. My journal is filled with notes, and my heart is overflowing with thanks.
Thank You, Lord, for these words of wisdom this past week (sharing a few of the many things I wrote in my journal):
~ "when we find ourselves in need of finances and in need of more manpower, we are right where God wants us, totally dependent on Him".
~ "operate out of brokenness, not out of giftedness"
~ "when faced with trials and difficulties, remember that God is not picking on me, but perfecting me."
~ "we are in 100% perfect standing with God"
~ "stamped next to our name in the Lambs Book of Life = Righteous!"
~ "don't listen to people so much - listen to the Holy Spirit and to the Book"
~ "is Jesus my life? is He the most important thing in my life, or is He my life?"
~ "global community of caring Christians passionate about connecting people to Jesus Christ"
~ "everything depends on my time alone with God"
~ "be in His Word - our life needs to come to us personally from God"
~ "God will do great things through you if you are willing to be lonely"
~ "go for the 'more' we long for"
~ "focus on being a bond-servant of Jesus, not on what position we're in"
~ "experience the Gospel ourselves"
~ "it's His story"
~ "don't fall in love with the work/ministry we are in, but fall in love with the One who called us"
~ "don't run from our pain, but run to it, for Jesus will be there"
~ "not do more, but be more"
~ "be transformed by the renewing of our minds; renew our minds in the Word"
