As you all know I recently went to a Women’s Conference. It was so amazing!! There is something that is so priceless to get away from the kids for a few days and just feed your spirit. God was so good to me that whole weekend, and I am so excited to be able to share with you all the good that God did in my life.
Hebrews 11:6 without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Keep this scripture in mind as I tell you all that happened…..
First-Last year at conference I watched Ms. Dodie Osteen preach and thought “Lord I would love the opportunity to meet her one day”. At conference this year I got to go to a luncheon event with her and April Simons. I can’t tell you what a blessing this was for me. There are very few people that are true what I call “Legends of the Faith”. Ms. Dodie Osteen is one of those Legends. I have such a respect for her and her ministry. So I got to hug her, listen to her, get my spirit fed by her words of amazing wisdom, and she said I was pretty . What girl doesn’t like to hear that she is pretty, but from my hero it is priceless *tear*. It is a moment that I will never forget.
Second-I could have just been in the sea of people that were there. God didn’t just sit me at the back of the audience no no no. God sat me right behind her! God put favor on me. I didn’t just get to hear her speak but I could have almost have reached out and touched her and Mrs. April. What a blessing!
Thirdly- There was a necklace that I saw the first night. I really wanted it. At that point though they were completely sold out of them. I was a little sad because I was thinking of all of the things I could wear with it. I looked that whole weekend at stores for one similar to that one; to no avail. I was a little sad. So I go to the last evening service. I see a beautiful lady wearing the necklace that I so wanted. I commented to her that I had wanted that necklace, but can’t find them anywhere. A few minutes later my friend comes up to me and tells me that she wanted to give me her necklace. The hardest thing in life is for me to receive. It breaks my heart when someone gives up something that they enjoy to give it to me. I have learned though when I don’t receive it the person giving won’t receive a blessing from God for their obedience. So it hurt to take it. So humbling to receive something from others.
Fourth- I have been on a hunt for a Little Miss Sunshine shirt for my daughter for about two months now. While looking for the necklace I found her a shirt. I really wanted one for myself also, because it will be cute for our family pictures with her and me. So I look all day, and am so sad because I hadn’t found the necklace or the shirt at this point. Well I go out to eat after I got my beautiful necklace. What do you know I see a girl wearing a Little Miss Sunshine shirt. I talk to her and tell her how bad I wanted that shirt, and have been looking for one. I come back by a little later and she is wearing another shirt. She then gave me the Little Miss Sunshine shirt. She tells me: “I really never wear this shirt. I don’t know why I even wore it today.” Well I know why she did, because I had wanted one.
The Sunday after I got back during praise and worship I was just thanking God for all that He had done that weekend. As worship continued God told me “When you ask for something I am listening.” WOW!!! God is ready and willing to meet any need that we have, all we have to do is ask. That is all that it takes. If you believe Hebrews 11:6 you will be rewarded. It is such a faith booster for me because I know if God can come through on letting me meet my hero, favor to get good seats, a necklace, and a shirt then He will meet my big needs also.
Girls I just have to ask you today are you seeking Him? Are you letting God know the desires of your heart. If you start putting Him first and truly seeking Him with all your heart He will reward you! If that isn’t good news I don’t know what is!
I would like for you to pray this with me if you are believing God for anything no matter how big or small:
Lord I know you know the desires of my heart. Nothing is too small for you and nothing is too big. Lord I thank you that you watch over your word to perform it. I thank you right now that you are perfecting that which concerns me. Father I thank you for supernatural income to pay debt, family members being saved, marriages restored, addictions broken, and hearts mended. Lord I thank you that you will answer my prayer quickly, give me peace and assurance as I wait for you to move in my life. I give you the Glory and the praise! In JESUS MIGHTY NAME! AMEN
I love ya’ll and always enjoy your comments! Thanks so much for stopping by and reading today! God’s favor and blessings!!!
