Whew! What a whirlwind! Thank YOU for praying me through my nutty but exciting past few weeks!
You may remember my crazy schedule’s first stop was ICRS in St. Louis. I had the best time sharing more about He Loves Me and Red Hot Faith! I even survived my first official DVD signing. Yay God!
I get so fired up thinking about the huge impact a group of Red Hot, passionate, powerful women could make for Kingdom purposes in this lost, hurting, and broken world!
Trip highlights include: being interviewed by Randy Robison from LIfe Today TV, hanging out with my amazing publicist Anne & the gracious Discovery House Publishing team, and spending time with gifted communicators/friends (i.e. Carol Kent, Amy Lively, & Kim DeBlecourt & many more.)
For a photo recap, check out my pictures here.
I made it home from St. Louis just in time to switch gears and get ready for the Speak Up Conference. Whew!
As I’ve been unpacking my piles of conference notes, I uncovered a commissioning statement tucked away in my Bible written by Beth Moore. I save it for days just like this.
This morning I pulled out the commissioning statement and prayed it aloud once again in faith. Then I prayed it for all the conference participants I’ve met over the past few weeks.
And now, my dear *She Sparkles* friends, I am praying it for you…
My Dear Sister/Brother,
The God of Glory
Has called you.
You have a ministry.
In Christ, you are enough for that ministry.
Never forget that showing God off is your ministry.
No matter what,
Keep your heart in your ministry.
Unveil your face
And serve others with authenticity.
That the power is in God’s Presence.
Come between you
And intimacy with God.
Keep moving forward
From glory to glory.
Let God thin that veil.
Remember, ministry is not about position.
It’s about people.
Let name after name
Be written on your heart.
Do not seek great things for yourself,
Seek a great God.
As you leave this place,
Go in a fresh anointing.
He who turns water into wine
Turns wimps into warriors.
You have a ministry.
Go fulfill it!
In Christ, WE ARE WARRIORS not wimps!
In Christ, WE ARE ENOUGH!
Oh how I need that reminder! It’s not about having the perfect Red Hot message, a trendy outfit, a stylish haircut, or even a flawless presentation. As long as we seek Him and His presence, regardless of the outcome, it’s going to be good!
What about for you?
What is God currently asking you to do which seems too big, too much, or like you are just not nearly qualified enough??
Do you need a fresh measure of His presence?
Do you need a reminder that in Christ, regardless of your circumstances, YOU, dear sister, ARE ENOUGH!
May I encourage you to print off Beth’s commissioning statement and tuck it away in your Bible. You’ll never know when you too might be encouraged by her powerful, Truth-filled words.
Well, I’m headed back to my unpacking. I’m still feeling way out of my comfort zone with all that’s on my list for this month too ~ but I’m prayed up, got my tennis shoes on, and I’m wearing lipstick. Somehow that makes me feel much better. 🙂
Have a fun-filled, life-giving weekend!
God’s richest blessings to you~
your energy has perked me right up on this, our sixth rainy day in a row! glad the weekend was awesome!
Love the commissioning statement by Beth Moore. Thanks for sharing here…needed the reminders today!
So encouraged, Cindy. I have Colossians 2:10 on a post-in on my computer…”You have been given fullness in Christ, who is Head over EVER power and authority.” Thanks for expanding on that verse!
