One of the things I love most about the days following She Speaks is reading all of the stories and blog posts describing how God met each woman there and spoke to her heart. This year it’s taken me several days to settle in at home and get to a point where I feel like I can take time away from my guys to visit my girlfriends and read their stories.
I am so looking forward to it. Every story is different and personal, powerful and beautiful. Even the simplest detail of God speaking to His daughters through a specific verse, conversation or unexpected gesture is breath-taking in my opinion.
Some stories are funny. Others are tear-jerkers. Many stories leaving me wishing I were invisible so I could’ve listened to words being shared, prayers being whispered.
Jesus met many of us in the Prayer room – kneeling on Holy ground as we read the names of God layed over our own – what an anointed place.
Hearts were stretched in speaker evaluation groups, I know. And many women surrendered their dreams and hearts before and after each publisher appointment.
My heart longs to read and thank God for the hundreds of stories that were written in our lives. I’d love to know what promise He gave you at the Cross on Sunday (there were 15 different ones printed on 600 different cards) and/or His name that was lying under your name in the prayer room.
If you or someone you know has posted their promise or a story on your blog, please leave a link in the comments box. If you don’t have a blog, I’d still love to hear your story. You could share it in my comments for me and others to read or email it to Renee@proverbs31.org and I’d like to share some of it here. I can’t wait to read and pray over each of you this weekend.
