Could it be? Is it She?

I am having so much fun with God lately.
He continues to call my name and point my eyes to see Him and His glory.
Between the study on Esther, last weekends ladies event and all the testimonies, I have been overwhelmed by all that God has allowed me to witness.

Now I awake and read Lysa TerKeurst blog .

Oh my heart started racing and thoughts started swarming. You see, I have heard about the She Speaks conference
a time or two but haven't really entertained the thought of me attending.
I mean come on,God has been stretching me and pushing me out of my comfort zone so often over the last 10 years. How could He ever have anything like this planned for me? I would have never imagine being placed where I am now but taking another step? How could that be?

Have you ever seen a fire begin? Being a mother of two boys and a wife of a man that loves to build fires, I have seen the beginning of a few. The wood is strategically placed and the tender is added all to be ready for that first spark.
A flint or match is struck and the red glows start warming until there is a full flame. This is how I see my desire for the She Speaks conference. God has been adding the tenders and the wood to my desire (a desire that I didn't even know existed until recently) and started hitting the flint together to create a spark. That spark has begun to consume what God has strategically placed together.

Why would I want to go to the She Speaks conference? It is designed to give you insights on developing your call. Whether that be speaking, writing, blogging, leading women or even reaching the next generation. There are different tracks that let you follow God's direct call on your life to reach women in your sphere of influence. That is exactly where I am...needing God's voice of direction.

Imagine this...You get a phone call from Regis...Says do you want to be a millionaire?

ERRRKKKK...wait a minute, put on the breaks. Sorry got carried away, that's a song.

Really imagine this. I am studying the providence of God, a desire is being fanned into a flame and then there is an opportunity to win a scholarship. For this country girl it is overwhelming. Whether I win a scholarship or not, I am praying that God will provide if it is His will I attend.

So Could it be? Is it She? She Speaks that is.

We'll see and leave the rest up to the Providence of God.
