Hi there bloggy friends and She Speaks attendees! Lysa is hosting a Mr Linky for She Speaks attendees so we can all get to know each other before we get to the conference in just 3 short weeks! I can’t wait to spend a whole weekend together laughing, learning and experiencing God in an amazing way.
I wonder how many of you are excited to be going but also really nervous about the whole thing. Feeling a little hesitant about being in a room with 500 other women, wondering what to wear, wondering what to say, wondering what to write, wondering what you were thinking when you signed up for the leadership sessions, etc.
Well, you are not alone. Just this morning I woke up with a cloud of DOUBT hovering over me about my messages for She Speaks. I have three weeks to finish two brand new messages. With all we’ve had going on with our move and everything that happened in between, I feel behind and a little overwhelmed. Oh, and guess what my Saturday night message is on? DOUBT, of course!
I even thought about calling the office and changing my message to something I’ve done before but it’s too late, the notebooks are at the printer and my outline is in it! Then I got an idea, I can get my friends to help me. That is where you come in…
Whether you are coming to She Speaks or not, I’d love to hear about your doubts – what area do you most often doubt yourself? I’d love to know if you have specific doubts about being a speaker, writer, woman in ministry, etc. What are the words of doubt that whisper in your ear? Do they make you retreat? What do you think causes them and what have you found to be a cure for them? Please click on comments below or send me an email with your thoughts. I really value your perspective.
Isn’t it amazing how the things we struggle become the very things God calls us to share about. It’s His power perfected in our weaknesses that draws others deep into His abiding love. So, whatever you are feeling today – joy, hope, doubt or fear – I’d love to hear about it. And my prayer is that together we’ll press into Jesus, asking Him to speak to us through it, as we become vessels of Grace and Truth equipped by Him to speak about it!
