We set the date 2 years ago and booked a special speaker…Gwen Smith with Girlfriends in God! And in just ten days it will happen! Our 4th annual This One’s for the Girls women’s conference.
Gathering with girls to celebrate God!
Gathering to dig deeper into His Word!
Gathering to praise and worship Him!
Gathering to fellowship with sweet sisters!
Gathering to draw closer to God!
This is so good! We once had a male praise team member say he would wear a wig just to get back in the next year if needed. No need! We understand that God is contagious and exciting!
Today I would like to ask each reader to join us in prayer. I know that you may not all be able to attend, but you can take part in prayer!
Two prayers have been strong on my heart for months now:
- Lord, Give us a heart that wants to worship you each day. That when we wake up we just want more of you that day than we did any other day. Lord, consume our hearts with Your love and unite us with Your heart!
- Father, Hold us! With your loving, outstretched arms, just hold us. Let us come to you and release everything we are carrying and just be still and be held.
“The LORD keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.” Psalm 121:8 NLT
Can you pray with us?
Last year I wrote these words:
Months in advance we plan the details of a special event we call, This One’s For the Girls, and we pray over what God wants in the details. We assign the tasks and trust the hands of our team to work together to make them all flow together with one hope in mind…that ladies will know His great love!
There are details you can see and some you just feel. Each chair will be touched and prayed over. You don’t see it, but you feel it somehow. We don’t always see God’s detailed plan for us but we have faith that there is a plan, a beautiful, detailed plan.
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
God knows details.
He knows the exact measurements of His creation, the name of every child.
He sees our coming and our goings.
He loves and cares about all the details of our hearts, minds and souls.
So, yes, we plan the details.
We want the package to have the right bag, the tissue and the bow!
But not so everything is pretty.
The details are planned to say, “you are special, you are treasured, you are loved”.
Details, Details, Details.
One detail is more important than any other.
Do you know the One who created you?
The One who knows the number of hairs on your head?
The One who catches your tears? Hears you cry?
Do you know Jesus loves you and He wants to be yours forever?
Savior that detail!
May we each have a deep understanding of the love that is offered to us by God. May it overwhelm us and fill our whole heart.
“Give me an undivided heart that doesn’t want anything more than to worship you!”
Psalm 86:11b (paraphrased)
