What does God have in store for me today?
Whether I know you personally or not, I promise it’s something incredible!
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
As I sit here, drinking my coffee, and writing this, my inner five-year-old is as excited as if it were Christmas morning.
Today starts She Speaks, a Christian women’s conference, organized by Proverbs 31 Ministries, and designed for writers, speakers, and leadership.
(I may have mentioned a couple of times that I’m going – insert goofy grin here!)
I’ve wanted to go to this conference for years and yet, I know God’s timing has worked out perfectly.
I wasn’t spiritually ready in the past.
I needed to line up my priorities to God’s priorities before I could go.
Otherwise, I’d end up fan-girling all over some of my favorite authors – writers who don’t do this for fame or money, but seek to honor and glorify God with their God-given talents!
So yes, while I’m excited to meet these women over the next few days, and hear them speak, God’s worked out the timing so my perspective would be in line with His spiritual priorities for my life.
God has something great in store for me today.
And for you.
Today, as you pray, thank God for the good work He is doing in your life.
Ask Him for blessings, but acknowledge that you only want them when you are ready to receive them!
And remember – thank Him for all that He’s already given!
