A Challenge to “Hear”

What an amazing women’s wknd retreat we had!  Carol Letkeman led us in a wonderful weekend of listening & discerning the voice of God.  It was so exhilarating to hear how God was/is speaking; especially when two or more people would “hear” the same thing.  WOW!  It gave me goosebumps on more than one occasion!

I wanted to share with you a powerful passage that kept coming up throughout the wknd from Ephesians:

“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
(Ephesians 3:16-19)

My prayer for you is that you would seek to hear & discern God’s voice, for yourself, for others & for our church & community.  And may we take up Carol’s challenge to come together as women (in our church foyer) to pray together, encourage one another, commission one another & spur one another on (EVERY SUNDAY)!  Not only is it our calling, it is our responsibility!

On My Watch

What will I allow to happen (or not happen) on MY WATCH?!  This was one of the challenges that grabbed my attention during the past two days at the Global Leadership Summit.  The Summit was completely inspiring & challenging!  WOW!  I have so much to process that I don’t know where to begin but it excites me!

Here’s a peak at some of the highlights from the Summit:
