Although it has been almost a month (!!!!!!!!!) since I left for SheSpeaks, I am still processing all that I learned. There was so much to take in that it was impossible to expect otherwise.
When I boarded the plane to North Carolina, I knew that I would be moved. That I would meet women who I would form a connection with. (Hi Friends!!)
But my heart was also all aflutter with wonder at WHY I was going. Clearly, the Lord’s hand had been upon my going. And that could only mean one thing: Be prepared – ’cause the Lord is gonna move some stuff! And that thrilled me beyond words.
I’m still wondering what that stuff is gonna be. There are no clear answers just yet. For now, I am just sitting and waiting for His direction.
And I’d be lying if I said it was easy.
It’s not that I expected the Women of Faith women to come knocking on my door. But honestly, I don’t know where to begin. How to even look for open doors.
Frankly, it surprises me that it surprises me. After all I’ve been through, I know that things don’t always fall into our laps. But maybe a little crumb could fall? Something, anything, God-breathed to push me along in the right direction.
Still, there is silence.
So, for now, I wait.
And I will surrender to that, and know that even "Wait" is a God-breathed command.
