This weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Belong Tour, featuring Patsy Clairmont, Jen Hatmaker, Angela Davis, Sharon Irving, Shauna Niequist, and Nichole Nordeman.
Friday night started with a song medley and then each speaker shared some of her story. That night, I went home and felt content, but I read some comments on the event Facebook page and one person brought up some concerns about the conference and it made me realize how important the words you say, the expectations you set and the power of a positive mental attitude. The next day, I couldn’t brush off those concerns/negative thoughts of this other attendee, so I did not enjoy Saturday as much as I could have.
- light reveals truth, truth sets us free, so the longer we keep a secret in the dark, the more powerful a stronghold it is in our life, but Jesus sets us free.
- We can give power to God or to struggle, but not both.
- Do it afraid!
- When God has called you – that doesn’t mean it will be easy, there are no guarantees. Say yes and move.
