Hey all…I so appreciate that a few of you have been checking out this blog and posting comments, it’s so way fun to get on here and read your comments and know you’re reading whatever God may be causing to rattle around between my ears and working out in the central processing unit in my chest. 🙂
Went to a Beth Moore conference this weekend and needless to say I am feeling pretty filled to the brim on this Sunday evening after a weekend with some terrific gals and a whole great big dose from God’s word. So many things I heard that are worthy of being passed on and yet am still processing so much of what she said and attempting to make sense of it in my own mind, I am not sure I would be able to do justice to it here just yet.
One thing though that made absolutely perfect sense and needs no process time was this…sitting in this big arena, speaking to thousands of women, before she said much about anything else, Beth addressed an audience we sometimes overlook. She said, “I have no idea what you brought in here with you tonight. I have no idea what you think about this Jesus guy or how much you know about this great book I hold in my hand. But I want you to know you are welcome here. If right now you are tempted to look around and think, I do not belong here, please know that the God of the universe welcomes you here. You are welcome here. You belong right here.” She never took for granted that there may be some there who didn’t know where they stood on this whole loving Jesus business and I so appreciated her offering warm welcomes on God’s behalf.
Just wanted to remind any of you who may be reading this who aren’t sure exactly what you think about all this God stuff, that you ARE welcome here. You are welcome right here. I pray that somehow He will show you how welcome you are near His heart.
Blessings in abundance….
